NIW: Porting priority date

Question details

Hello, Let me start with my question: Is it possible to port priority date from an existing employer sponsored EB2 petition to a new EB2 NIW petition ? I am an Indian citizen with a masters degree in Electrical Engineering from Univ. of Maryland College Park. I have a pending EB2 petition (approved I140) through my employer but am also exploring a self petitioned EB2 NIW application in parallel. I would like to understand if the earlier priority date from my employer sponsored petition can be ported to the NIW petition, if approved. Please advise. Thank You Mathew


Yes. You can port the PD.
