Relocation after I-140


Recommended Posts

Hi, Hope you doing great! I am currently working in Minnesota and my Green Card Labor was approved, going for I-140 very soon.

As a future plan I decided to move to Florida to work from Florida office for same company. Now my question is do I have to apply for the new Labor and I-140 in Florida again or nothing is required since it is same position with same company?

I greatly appreciate your word on this. Thank you.

I really have no idea about what a commutable distance is for the USCIS or how do they decide it. I have seen attorneys in the Murthy forum use this terminology before.

Yes - to my understanding if your new location is outside of the initial Metro Area (check in icert portal for your State-Metro Area under Prevailing Wages), then you need to start your PERM & I-140 again but can retain the old PD while applying for I-140 in work location.

I am also in the same boat and am waiting for my I-140 to get approved for current location.

Once done, I will be transferred to new location in different state. Again, there my employer will start GC process from start.

Its a headache process but we need to undergo this whenever there is a change in employee location/transfer.
