Approved i-140, 5th yr of H1-B, Laid off, can I get 3 yr extension?

Recommended Posts


I have following situation and need some help.

My 2nd h1-B will expire in Aug 2015.

I -140 is already approved and priority date is in Oct-2010.

Recently got laid off by company A.

Company B is ready to hire me, but I am confused about whether my transfered H-1B will expire in Aug-2015 or I will get 3 yrs extension as company A has not yet revoked I-140?


It will be same kind of Job in the new company.

Does new company have to file my I-140 from scratch? Is the i-140 portable? What does poratable mean here?
