Green card processing after internal transfer to another country

In general, what is the policy followed regarding the ongoing green card processing when a person does a internal transfer to another country?

Is the green card application revoked? Or continued to completion as the employee is still with the company?

    It depends on the company, for me they kept the process going.

      No spl case, it was default. There was no benefit for them to revoke it. You can clarify that with your hr/immigration team.

      Oh ok.. do you know if Amazon would continue the process if it is pending for PERM approval (or in any previous stage for that matter)?

      Best bet here is to confirm with the immigration team, but even with 140 pending, I dont see why it would be different.

    Why do you need a green card if you are gonna be permanent employee in a different country?

    Talk to experienced attorney. Having green card and not using it can cause it "abandoned". Not changing paperwork - charge of status vs. consular processing is different reason to GC to not be approved. Do not seek legal advice from a crowd as they know no details of your specific case.

      There is no green card here for it to be abandoned, it is being applied for. After filing for 485/aos vs consular processing, it will need a new filing if you move back to us. And as always, yes please talk to an immigration attorney. Use the data from these forums as input, but not the authoritative answers...
