  1. Hi guys, I had my visa approved at Vancouver but got my passport and came back to the U.S. Before the stamping as I could not wait any longer. I was told to come back and give my passport and approval notice for stamping once the issues are resolved. I hear from others in the same boat that they were asked to just mail in their passport and documents. Has anyone pursued either directions? If yes , please share your experience.
  2. I came back without the visa stamp when the technical glitch had happened and wondering if I have to go back in person to get the stamping or could I just mail it in as it approved but not stamped because of the hardware failure. Any ideas/ experiences please share.
  3. Yeah they were letting everyone back in if ur visa was approved... I wish I had stayed to get the stamping! Now will have to make another trip... Oh well!!! On top of that I was actually eligible for waiver.... Gotta be more attentive to the forum!
  4. Hmmmm.... I thinks that is right as I was told the same but another person I met at the forum said he was told that he could mail it in. Anyone received the stamping after just mailing it in?
  5. If u have a valid work visa in the U.S. Then they give u a Mexican visa on arrival
  6. I went to the vancouver embassy after they had sent me an email that I may be eligible for the above and I could pickup the passport without the visa. Has anyone heard of the program. I am a little hesitant to try it coz if I don't get in to the U.S. Then I will lose my spot currently and if I do go through without a hitch I will have to come back for the stamping.

    Automatic revalidation program

    I am on the flight to SFO. Seems like it worked. If it did it was a breeze. I didn't say anything to the Immigration officer. Just showed him my passport and I 94. And he asked me what I do and y I was here and was I alone. He stamped my entry into the U.S. But I am not sure if I needed visa via AVR or just stamping. So for those a scared that they shouldn't go for avr due to having applied for a visa I think it should all fine. Hope that helps

    With regards to the expired visa AVR will work. But the million dollar question is Can it be used after applying for the visa during this trip. My lawyer told me to attempt it and it should be ok but I think I will be waiting till next week . Any thoughts?
  11. My lawyer states that DOS emailed them that this is unlikely to be fixed before July . ( I am hoping that they just meant the backlog and its clearance) Guys please check updates with your lawyers.

    You're definitely a step ahead. I decided not to go for the automatic revalidation. Thinking of a road trip through Jasper and Banff.... Any takers?

    I Know .... Thats where the dilemma is. The VO said the people at the border have access to what happens at the visa consulate so they would know the visa is approved and the technical issues and stuff ( Thats when I tried to get them to give me a letter that my visa is approved...... which they wouldn't of course.)
  15. Kethanp Can you please let us know if your friend had also applied for a visa during that time. Did he come back on the automatic visa revalidation. My H1 has expired but I 94 is valid but obviously had the visa interview here so wasn't sure if I would be eligible for this. Did not want to take my passport out of line until I could figure it out.

    as approved. So you may or may not go through. If you go through, yay! But u have to come back to get your stamping again. More than likely they will not interview u but that's case based. If you don't go through, you are back in the line for the stamping.... And we don't really know the back log. I would suggest talk to your lawyers as well and update us with what you got.! I m debating this as well. I got the email as a response to an email I sent them.

    That's nice. How's Victoria? Am debating going there or a trip to Alberta to the national parks now that they have stated its going to be next week. However also looking up automatic revalidation program..... So either going back to the U.S. Or a road trip
  19. I am in the group as well. I see lots more people around here that could join in.
  20. Hi, I had my visa approved on the 9 th but awaiting updates on the technical glitch. I just went back to the embassy and they still can't give a timeline. I have to check out of my place June 16th. Looking for shared accomodation in the Vancouver area. Anyone has any updates to any timelines please reply.

    Bshakir yeah it sounds like we r stuck here. I was trying to get a group together for all of us in Vancouver waiting it out. Contact me via email if u r around. It's a gmail account khurana.jasjit
  23. Kethanhp. That's very interesting that they would let u in even if ur prior h 1 is expired. I think that's coz u were driving and not flying.
  24. Circumspect I am unable to see ur email likely coz I only have a phone n no computer on me ( though I don't see how that should make a difference. See if u can reach me on gmail @khurana.jasjit
  25. Hmaster it takes a while to see the messages pop up. I've been staying at bnb and as this seems to be ongoing And I hadn't found anyone to share with till last night I reached out to some family friends to crash at. Maybe you can shoot me an email. It's a gmail account khuranadotjasjit
