PERM Approval, How Long the I-140 Petition Process Will Likely Take?
My employer has started the PERM Labor Certification application for me. After the PERM application approval, how long the I-140 petition process will likely take?
After the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) approves the PERM Labor Certification application, the U.S. employer can file an Form I-140 petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The Form I-140 petition should includes the original approved PERM application in which the U.S. employer and the alien beneficiary worker must sign it.
The Form I-140
petition should also include the evidence of the
U.S. employer’s ability to pay the alien worker’s
salary, and documents confirming that the
alien beneficiary is qualified for the position, such as a copy of the
alien worker’s educational degrees.
The approved PERM Labor
Certification application is only valid for a certain period of time,
therefore the Form I-140 petition must be filed within this validity
Otherwise the PERM Labor Certification
application will expire, and the employer must start over
