Recent Developments on PERM Approval Time

In our news article on July 22, we reported that Department of Labor (hereafter, DOL) made an announcement at the recent AILA annual conference about the normal processing times and inquires. The DOL specifically designated the “normal processing time” for the PERM employer or attorney receiving DOL responses (approval, audit, denial) as 90 days after a submission.

In the past few weeks, attorneys on our PERM specialty team have successfully filed multiple PERM petitions. In most cases, we received the DOL approval decision within 2 weeks after our online submission. Our experience with shorter processing times demonstrates that the DOL takes its promise of a 90 day normal processing time seriously. We will closely monitor any change of DOL processing times for PERM petitions.

Disclaimer: Our firm's past experience of quick approval is only an indication of DOL's processing time and we cannot guarantee DOL's processing time on any individual case.  In addition, our past successful experience of approvals cannot guarantee the outcome of any individual case.  Each case is unique and our firm's role in the process is to use our experience and expertise to best advance clients' interest.
