My I-140 was approved a couple of years ago, but I was just laid off. Do I need my original I-140 approval notice to be able to use that priority date for a future green card case?


No, you do not need the original I-140 approval notice for priority date retention. You can just reference the approved case receipt number information and include a copy of the approval, if available. (07.Dec.2023)
