What is LCA for H1B Visa?
LCA stands for Labor Condition Application. LCA is a mandatory document that the H1B Sponsor / employer needs to file with US Department of Labor before they file the H1B petition with USCIS for any non-immigrant worker. The H1B Sponsors need to file ETA Form 9035 / 9035E electronically with US DOL using their iCERT Portal System (basically DOL’s online system). Besides “H1B”, the same LCA form is also used by employers for filing as required for other visa types like “H 1B1 Chile”, “H1B1 Singapore” or “E3 Australian.”
