Under the current rules or the newly proposed rules, is there a way to port my approved I-140 to a different employer?


No. Unless one qualifies under AC21 (i.e. the I-485 has been pending for 180 days and the move is to a same / similar position as the one in the underlying I-140), the I-140 generally can only be used to apply for a green card with the petitioning employer. The priority date, however, can be used for any other EB3 or EB2 case filed for the same beneficiary. (09.May.2016)
