On April 21, 2023, the Office of Foreign Labor Certifications Announced the Timeline for Form ETA-9089 Case Creation and Case Submission in Foreign Labor Application Gateway.
The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) will begin accepting the revised Form ETA-9089, Applications for Permanent Employment Certification, in the Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG) system on May 16, 2023. Filers may begin creating and staging applications in the FLAG system on April 24, 2023.
As a result of the transition to the revised version of the form and the transition to FLAG, OFLC will no longer accept any new applications submitted via the legacy PERM Online System after May 15, 2023, at 6:59 pm eastern standard time. OFLC will no longer accept the previous version of Form ETA-9089 after May 15, 2023, either electronically or submitted by mail.
To facilitate this transition, OFLC conducted two webinars on April 19 and April 20, 2023, to educate the stakeholder community on the new form and FLAG system filing process. OFLC will make recordings of these webinars available shortly.
