H-1B extension, I-140 withdrawn by prev employer


New Member

My present employer is sponsoring my H-1B. My previous employer had filed for my Green Card in 2012. I had switched over to the current employer in 2013. I have an approved I-140 but my previous employer withdrew it recently after more than 180 days of approval. As per the Jan 2017 portability rule, am I still eligible to apply for my H-1B visa extension with my present employer which is due to expire in Feb 2019?

I would appreciate your advice.
