PERM Processing Times

There are a few different paths to receiving a green card in the U.S. One way in which this can be achieved is through sponsorship by an employer via the 3-step PERM process:

  1. Obtain a Certified Permanent Labor Certification (PERM) from the Department of Labor;
  2. File a Preference Petition with U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS); and
  3. File either an Adjustment of Status (AOS) application with USCIS OR pursue Immigrant Visa Processing (IVP) if outside the U.S.
