What is the step by step process followed and time taken for each after wage determination has been received from DOL

Generally, after the PWD is obtained, recruitment begins and is a period of time no less than 60 days. Once the PERM is filed, DOL will process pursuant to their stated processing times. At the moment, it is approximately five months, if the application is not audited.

Both the PWD and the adjudication of the PERM is based on DOL processing times that change frequently. Recruitment is based on regulation that lists it as no shorter than 60 days. I-140 processing also depends on USCIS processing times, however, can be premium processed.
