"AC21"

The American Competitiveness in the 21st Century Act (AC21) allows an individual with a pending I-485 Adjustment of Status petition to seek new employment. This process is known as “AC21 Portability” or “Porting.”

The following conditions must be met in order to qualify:

  1. The new employment must be the “same or similar” occupational classification.
  2. Your Form I-140 must be approved by USCIS, or be approvable when filed concurrently with your Form I-485.
  3. Your Form I-485 must have be pending with USCIS for at least 180 days.

It is important to note that:

  1. The new job does not have to be in the same geographic location.
  2. The new job does not have to pay the same or a higher salary.
  3. A new labor certification is not required.
