L1B to H1B visa stamping in Canada

9 posts in this topic

Hello friends,

I have worked on L1B for almost 4.5 years in US and then switched to H1B with new employer. Since I have my I-140 approved I recently got 3 years H1B extension approved.

My question is:

Can I go for stamping in Canada?

Which location would you recommend?

The reason I am asking is some one told me that first time H1B stamping must be in home country only. Is this true?

If any of you gone to Canada with similar situation, please share your experience.

Thanks in advance for your response.

Yes, you can go to Canada for H1B stamping though it's first time H1B stamping.

Hi bandrablues,

Thanks for your reply. Kindly share your experience when you go. Which consulate are you going to?

I sent an email to Montreal consulate asking whether I can do H1B stamping for the first time in Montreal. They did not respond yet.

Do you know of someone who went and got stamping with similar situation (L1B to H1B)?
