EB3 to EB1A date portability

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

I am currently on H1 work visa. My employer had initiated my green card process, for which my Priority date is Nov 2019. Recently, I self petitioned my case in EB1A Category, which got approved. The PD for this is Sept 2022. The EB1 dates for Indian nationals have retrogressed And hence my EB1A date is no longer current.

Given my situation, can (or will) USCIS use my PD from EB2 application and hence deem my EB1A case to be current? I have already filed my I485, I765 and I131 forms last month. I didnt find any line item on those forms asking for previously approved I140 and PD.

Any help or guidance will be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you
