Default Porting priority date how it will change if these new ammendment passes

If you have I140 cleared from company A you can use Priority date if you change Job and apply fresh GC from Company B in any catergory.

How will this change if the new legislation/amendment that are discussed passes.

Any ideas guys.

I would recommend you take up the new job and apply under the point based system. Right now they have 140K for EB categories and it will go down to 90K. So even if you keep your PD, you case will be retrogressed further.

Its not clear yet if priority date comes into the picture at all. Nothing is clear yet, for example for the Canadian points system does not have a country quota or any limits on the number of gc every year. There is a cetain pass mark and if you have the required pass marks you make it.

With the CIR points system there is an annual limit and also a country quota, so how will they select candiddates,
1. based on pass marks?
2. based on who has the highest number of points for each country
3. Does the priority date come into plat at all?

hope somebody has the answers for these questions.

Since there is a quota, priority date will come into play. That is why the new bill specifies that those who files I-140 after May 21, 2007 and those whose LC are approved or pending will maintain their priority dates. Anyone who files under the new point based system will have their receipt dates as their priority dates.

same_old_guy has a spectacular aura about same_old_guy has a spectacular aura about
Default Porting priority date

Checking out this section of the bill :

(2) PENDING AND APPROVED PETITIONS AND APPLICATIONS.—Petitions
for an employment-based visa filed for classification under
section 203(b)(1), (2), or (3) of the Immigration and Nationality
Act (as such provisions existed prior to the enactment of this
section) that were filed prior to the date of the introduction of
the [Insert title of Act] and were pending or approved at the time of
the effective date of this section, shall be treated as if such
provision remained effective and an approved petition may serve
as the basis for issuance of an immigrant visa. Aliens with
applications for a labor certification pursuant to section
212(a)(5)(A) of the Immigration and Nationality Act shall
preserve the immigrant visa priority date accorded by the date
of filing of such labor certification application.



It says something about preserving priority date. Is there any provision to port the priority date from old system to new system. I am sure there would some sort of concept for priority date in the new system.

Now if we can transfer our priority date from old system we would definitely get some benefit in the new system. Any comments ?

preserve the immigrant visa priority date accorded by the date
of filing of such labor certification application.


doesnt the above statement mean people who have filed for labor certification retain there priority date. For example if I140 is cleared and labor certification was done in Jan 2005 then you will retain the jan 2005 priority date.

I am not sure it says only people who applied for I140 after May 21 retain there priority date. Everybody retains there priority date no matter when they applied for I140.

In my case, I have my EB3 labor and I140 approved with PD as May 2004. I have already started a new PERM EB2 from same company in order to port PD. I have not reached to the stage where I can apply I140 (under EB2) to actually start porting PD. With the new rule of "21st May 2007", I am not sure how would my case be treated? Can somebody shed some light on this?

ARUNRAMANATHAN will become famous soon enough
Default Question - Follow Up

If we have a new Merit based system introduced

Does this mean that No more PERM and i-140 ?
Just the Merit Based System and Port PD to that system ?

Hmmm then people like me and others who are in the 8 th yr ext can renew the Visa....

I am in the same situvation have to change firm ...from A to B with approved 140 from A.

BS ...This is quite frustrating; you move in due to economical reasons ... wait wait to get the so called green card during that time you bite to fingers for to maintain the status from the blood suckers .... now these so called law makers who say you were supposed to work for 6 yrs now go back ...seriously I wish I had more powers than I have now ! Sorry guys to express my frsutrations ! !

What will happen to people who already made the move hoping to preserve their priority date from previous employer? Isn't this unfair to these folks. Do you think they may be exempt from this? I wish at least.

I assume USICS will accept the Labor's and I 140 until in the old form until the merit based system was introduced .I assume the transition will be like the introduction of PERM
