(PR) Other PR Options Through Self-sponsorship

Permanent Residency without Employer Sponsorship

There are many pathways to PR that do not require employer sponsorship. These options can be pursued by the employee, on their own, or with the assistance of an immigration attorney at any time. Departments can offer their support for those personal petitions by writing support letters, if asked, but cannot pay filing fees, attorney fees, or allow the immigration attorney to represent the UW in any way.
