Due to the pandemic and the state of the United States economy, many sectors have experienced staffing shortages across the country.
The trucking industry has been hit extremely hard with employers struggling to find eligible, hardworking drivers to fill shifts.
In fact, the American Trucker’s Association recently cited a record deficit of roughly 80,000 truck drivers.
Aging is another factor influencing the labor shortage as many drivers are retiring.
The trucking industry boasts one of the highest average ages of any profession at 55 years old.
Furthermore, the trucking industry has been historically male with only about 6% of all commercial truck drivers being women, however this is hurting the industry’s ability to fill jobs.
The lack of age and gender diversity provides an opportunity for a new wave of immigrant workers to find truck driving jobs sponsoring US Green Cards.

Steps Toward Earning Your Sponsored EB3-Visa:
Step 1 PERM Labor Certification:
Our team prepares and files the PERM Labor Certification, which is the first step in the green card process.
What is PERM labor certification?
PERM labor certification is the first step in the EB-3 green card process.
It is a permanent, full-time job offer from a U.S. employer.
The PERM labor certification is filed with the Department of Labor (DOL).
How long does the PERM certification take?
The EB-III PERM labor certification process usually takes around six months and is a great start toward earning your US Green Card.
What does the PERM certification process entail?
First, the employer must conduct two Sunday newspaper ads or one journal ad and 30 days at the State Workforce Agency seeking qualified applicants for the position.
Next, the employer must post a notice of the open position at their place of business for ten consecutive business days.
After these initial recruitment steps, the employer must complete an Attestation Form ETA-9035E and file it with the DOL.
The DOL will review the form and supporting documentation to ensure that all eligibility requirements have been met.
Once the DOL has approved the PERM labor certification, they will issue an Approval/Certification.
Our team prepares and files the I-140 Petition with USCIS, which is the second step in the green card process.
What is an I-140 Petition?
The EB-3 I-140 Petition is filed with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The I-140 petition shows that the PERM labor certification has been approved and that the foreign national has an offer of permanent, full-time employment from a U.S. employer.
How long does the I-140 Petition take?
The EB-3 I-140 Petition for truck drivers usually takes around from 15 days to six months to be processed by USCIS.
What steps are included in the I-140 Petition?
The EB-3 I-140 Petition includes the following steps:
The U.S. employer must file Form I-140, Petition for an Immigrant Worker.
Along with the form, the employer must submit evidence that they are able to pay the offered wage, evidence of the foreign national’s qualifications, and a copy of the approved PERM labor certification.
Is it possible to expedite the I-140 process?
Yes, it is possible to expedite the EB-3 I-I-140 process by using Premium Processing
I-485 Adjustment of Status Petition with USCIS, (or DS-260 if you are outside the U.S.) which is the 3rd and final step in the green card process.
How long does it take?
The EB-3 I-485 Adjustment of Status Petition (or DS-260 if you are outside the U.S.) is the final step in the green card process.
It usually takes around four to six months to be processed by USCIS.
After the EB-3 Green Card process is complete, the foreign national will be a permanent resident of the United States and will be able to live and work permanently in the United States.
EB-3 green card holders are also eligible for citizenship after five years.
When can my family come to the United States?
After the EB-3 Green Card process is complete, the foreign national’s spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 will be able to come to the United States on an immigrant visa.
