April 1, 2009 Announcement of New iCERT System Rollout Schedule: The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) is announcing the implementation of a new one-stop visa portal system, formally called the iCERT System, to improve employer access to employment-based visa application services and OFLC immigration news and information. Beginning April 15, 2009, employers or their authorized representatives will be able to register with the iCERT System and establish a single account to file the new ETA Form 9035E – Labor Condition Application (LCA) covering the H-1B, H-1B1, and E-3 visa programs. In addition, OFLC has implemented a dedicated Help Desk Unit at the Chicago National Processing Center to serve as a resource to those employers and or their authorized representatives filing LCAs with the Department.
