I140 Validity


Recommended Posts

Hi All, Please suggest on the I140 issue.

While I was in USA, I was working for X company but another consulting firm Y wanted to do my H1B transfer and PERM initiation.

Due my visa issues with X company, I have to move out of US.  after moving out from USA My H1B visa and PERM got approved with Y. Due to COVID I could not go for stamping.   My Y company told that if we do not file I140, PERM will be invalid within 6 months so they filed I140, after few months I140 approved.

So basically, I never worked with the Y but they has my I140. My question is, even though I did not work for them, If I get my I140 copy, should go and transfer my H1B with I140. Of course I have pay much to get my I140 copy. Please suggest.

Generally, when an I-140 petition is approved and has remained approved for at least 180 days (without withdrawal), the I-140 petition remains valid continuously. However, once the priority date becomes and remains current for one continuous year the beneficiary will generally lose eligibility to extend their H1B status.
