However, if your I-140 has been denied, you will not be able to return to the United States unless you have another valid visa. Therefore, it is best to speak with an immigration attorney before making any travel plans, just to be sure.

The I-140 is an important part of the green card process, and it’s important to make sure that it remains valid until the I-485 reaches the 180-day point.
