    The Department is announcing the implementation of electronic filing in the H-2A and H-2B visa programs through the Department's iCERT Visa Portal System. We believe this new electronic filing capability will enhance the accessibility and quality of labor certification services, reduce the data collection and reporting burden on small employers, facilitate more streamlined business processes, and establish greater transparency in the Department's decisions.

    Electronic filing in the H-2B program will begin on October 15, 2012. Electronic filing in the H-2A program will begin on December 10, 2012. In advance of these implementation dates, the Department will publish a Federal Register notice formally announcing implementation of electronic filing, and then conduct four webinar training sessions to orient the public to electronic filing in the H-2A and H-2B programs.
