EB2 to EB1-C Port after working as a manager at offshore location

Recommended Posts

My I-140 approved under EB2 category recently . My employer is ready to port EB2 to EB1-C .To do this, my employer is asking me to go to offshore (India) and work as a manager for an year.

1.      Is it advisable to travel to offshore immediately after I-140 approval? Even though the porting within the same employer, will this impact my EB2 to EB1-C porting as I did not stay in the USA for 180 after I-140 approval?

2.      After my one year of stay in India as a manager, is it possible to come back to the USA and do the port immediately?

3.      As I did not stay in the USA for 180 days after my I-140 approval, Is it possible to use the EB2’s priority date while porting within the same employer?

4.      If porting did not go well and if I wish to change the employer, will the 180days be considered even if I worked in India for the same employer or it has to be in the USA experience?
