I am currently on H1B status. A good friend of mine owns a business, and he has offered to have his business file a PERM case for me. Is this allowed?


Generally speaking, the fact that you are friends with the owner of a company would not prevent that company from filing a PERM case for you. Assuming the company has a position available for you, and otherwise meets the basic requirements, yes, it typically is allowed to sponsor you. (10.Jul.2024)
