Perm Filing being out of US

Hi, I am in my 6th year of H1B ending September. I had to quit job in May and had to come to India in June for some unforseen reasons.

Is there a possibility of filing Perm in premimum process by a Staffing Agency and apply for extension of H1B with me being in India. Though the staffing agency do have contract Jobs aligned.

please consult a lawyer.

there's no premium processing for PERM application, once LC is approved, you can apply I-140 under premium processing.

There is no premium processing for the PERM application, although there is premium processing for the I-140 petition.

Depending on your circumstances, a labor certification application filed by an employer in the U.S. may provide an avenue to return in H1B status at a later date.

It would be wise to consult with a competent immigration attorney who has the opportunity to review the relevant information from your case in order to develop a strategy for proceeding.
