iCERT case numbers are used by the Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC), Employment and Training Administration, and the United States Department of Labor to identify and track applications for permanent and temporary labor certifications as they move through the iCERT system to receive a final determination. OFLC automatically assigns an official case number to each application submitted for processing.
OFLC case numbers appear in the following format: [Visa Program Designation]-[3-digit Visa ID]-[5-digit Julian Date]-[6-digit Number Assignment]
The Visa Program Designation includes the following values:
- G = PERM Application
- I = Labor Condition Application
- H = H-2A and H-2B Applications
3-Digit Visa ID (000) values are hardcoded and include the following values:
- 100 = Basic PERM Application
- 101 = PERM Application for Professional Athletes
- 200 = H-1B
- 201 = H-1B1 Chile
- 202 = H-1B1 Singapore
- 203 = E-3 Australian
- 300 = H-2A
- 400 = H-2B
The next 5 digits indicate the Julian Date on which the case was submitted for processing.
The last 6 digits indicate a random number assigned to the case by the iCERT System.
