PERM approval for a foreign company with minimal presence in USA

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The head-quarters for the sponsoring employer were located outside the United States.  The applicant worked in the United States at a branch office, which had fewer than 5 employees.  Because of the head-quarters location and the US branch office size, the DOL questioned the existence of the company in the United States.  We responded with evidence of the sponsoring employer’s business in the United States and the PERM Petition was certified.
