Apple green card policy

Does Apple have company wide policy regarding case initiation for a green card? 3 months, 6 months or day 1 with manager approval?

And how fast can they “actually” start the case? Microsoft has day 1 policy but our internal queue is ridiculously long right now.

edit: In MSFT there have been too many people waiting to get their PERM started and the number far exceeds immigration team’s capacity. Newly joined employees are given an ETA as late as next year to start the labor market test.

    No such rule in Apple, your manager needs to send any email to skips boss and if its approved, the process can start.

      In all cases I’ve seen, it starts immediately after employee requests manager for approval - manager has no reason to oppose this (after all, they did hire you)

      Do you need to push manager to get it started? Like really try to shine in first 3 months and then ask for it

      I asked and they acknowledged.. unless the policy changes in the last couple of years.. did you join or you still have to?

      I am in the process of onboarding. Recruiter didn’t give me clear answer and kept saying it would be “fine”.

      No you don’t have to push. It’s pretty standard for it to start soon after you join.
