If you already had H1B stamping & expired or about to Expire & need to get H4 stamped (or Change of status in same H visa category)

You can do it in Mexico too (along with canada or home country)

FYI : H1B & H4 comes under same H visa category & many folks did get stamped in Mexico too & it's allowed.

F1 to H1B stamping is not allowed in Mexico as both comes under different visa categories.

Thank you everyone. One follow up to the above question. Will it be same even if there is no h1b stamping on passport? Although on h1b never travelled out of country for stamping.

Why are you pushing her to go to Mexico when the OP is clearly asking about Canada? Do you have any financial interest in doing so?

As getting dates in canada is kind of tough, around > 5 to 6 months from now + getting canadian visitors visa is around 1 month process on top of that.

If it's not possible (Ex: F1 to H1B stamping is not possible in mexico, canada or home country are options), i would not have said about that option too.

Where as H4 to H1B (or) H1B to H4 stamping is possible anywhere, Not many folks know this info too

Yes, I am service provider for visa services in mexico. Helped & guided many folks to get stamped from this forum.
