    You don't lose your Section 245(i) grandfathered coverage based on your prior Laborcert filed on or before April 30, 2001, as long as you don't leave the US. Obviously you know that.

    But "recapturing" your 2001 priority date for your subsequent PERM filed in November 2007 is a little difficult. Normally this is being allowed if the corresponding Form I-140 has been filed and approved for the previous Laborcert. But some practitioners are trying to do so by filling out that info on the first fields of ETA Form 9089. Check with your lawyer if s/he tried it.

    Hi,

    What is ROW, PERM and ETA?

    PERM is an internet-based "Program Electronic Review Management" under the DOL which replaced the traditional paper-based Alien Employment Certification process (or Laborcert) since March 28, 2005. The Labor Certification process is the avenue by which a nonimmigrant worker can be petitioned leading up to a green card as long as a US business can prove to the DOL that an extensive recruitment effort has been exerted but no willing, available, able or qualified US worker has been found to fill up the vacant position. ETA or Employment Training Administration is the division under the DOL that handles this process. ROW or Right of Way (just kidding) in relation to this process is an acronym perhaps of the OP's own making.

    Hi RoughN,

    Thanks for those comprehensive replies. And also for explaining it in such a manner that we newbies can understand.

    Sorry about the inconvenience.ROW stands for Rest of the world means not Inda,China,Maxico,Philippines or Canada which represent bulk of the labor based applicats.Other than these countris, rest of the countries falls under ROW catogary,when it come to Visa allocations

    I was right then. Haha! Because the acronym ROW is not being officially used. The Department of State refers to the REST OF THE WORLD as "All Chargeability Areas Except Those Listed." So the acronym closest to it should be ACA or ACAETL. And by the way, Canada is part of ROW or ACA.
