I have my PERM in-process.

 

I have completed the 6th year of H1B and am in India at present.

 

After my PERM is approved and my attorney gets a courtesy email, I would like to know the order of processes and respective timelines after that until I get my new H1B stamped.

 

Here is what I have (though I am not sure if the order is correct):

 

1. Attorney gets courtesy email that PERM is approved.

2. Wait for the actual PERM document - (Time taken ??)

3. Employer applies for I-140

4. Employer applies for new LCA

5. Employer applies for new H1B

6. Candidate schedules Visa interview.

6. Candidate goes toH1B interview.

 

Please let me know if the order is correct and the suggested timeline for each step.

All timelines assume no RFE or delay  in collecting documents.
