FOIA responds I140 records fall under the purview of the U.S. Department of State (DOS)


Recommended Posts

I completed my 6 years in H1B and went back to India by Jan 2020, by when my Green Card Perm approval was pending.
My I140 petition got approved by June 2020 when I was in India.
I came back to USA by Feb 2023, with my new Visa(i797- petition done through the I140 approval).
My Employer is not ready to disclose the I140 petition or the I140 receipt number.

I tried with FOIA and got below response, please let me know the next steps on how to get my I140 receipt number . Thanks!
