I have an approved I-140, but I plan on leaving my employer and moving out of the U.S. for the time being. Can I still keep the same priority date if I return to the U.S. in a few years?


Leaving the United States generally would not cause one to lose a priority date. A U.S. company typically could file a new PERM and I-140 for the individual, and transfer the old priority date to the new I-140. (24.Jul.2017)
