i am in the process of doing it..
u just have restart the whole process!..but u should have an approved 140 on Eb3..!

some ppl here may think its unethical or its cheating..but i think..the PD is a measure of the who is ahead in the line...not category..;-)

Restarting wouldn't be a bad idea in my case as i'm EB3 ROW and i do have an approved I140 on EB3.

But in my case i have over 4 years of work experience, but do not have a masters degree, so any idea if that is possible ?

My gut feeling is that regardless if i'm not able to qualify for EB2, my PD JUN 2006 will get current in a couple of months - just hopefull :rolleyes:

1. your employer has to proffer you a position which has either BS+5 or advanced degree as minimum requirement.
2. you accept it and ask your employer to start the GC process.
3. your employer applies for Labor Certification for the proffered position.
4. your employer applies for 140 for the cleared labor. here the employer requests the USCIS to use the earlier PD of your approved EB3 140

but but you will still need to wait for 9+ months to get your new 140 approved right?

But would waiting an aprrox 9 months matter if the dates are current ? Else i see your point that it is another wait.... it all depends on the timing and a bit of luck i guess.

vinabath, i think you might be right about BS+5, all i have is BS+4. So if i wait for another 8~9 months, get 5 full years, move to EB2, then wait another 8~9 months for I140.... by that time i'll prolly be current in EB3 ROW (PD Jun 2006) :confused:
