Received a letter requesting the ETA-750


After submitting I-140 I have been requested to submit form ETA-750. or ETA form 9089 . Can you please let me know why I was asked to submit these as these are used for labor certification. When I ‘m submitting the required forms is there any thing special I have to focus?

Thanks you very much,


Normally this form is not required when you self-petition in EB1a or EB2NIW.  Your petition packet should include a section mentioning why you should be exempt from requiring labor certification. However some petition examiner send a RFE letter asking for a ETA-750b. You can fill one and send it as requested by the RFE. You should also mention in the response that you are self-petitioning in NIW and argue that  requiring labor certification process would adversely national interest.

    Hi GCforPhD,
    I have received the same letter for my self petition. Did you submit any additional evidence or simply filled the form out? I will appreciate the help as I am self-petitioning too. How long did they take for a decision after you submitted the form?
    Thanks a bunch

      If the RFE only asks you submit a ETA-750, you fill out the form and include a cover letter. Usually USCIS take 1 to 3 months depending on the case, processing time and RFE.

      Best Wishes
