COPR AND H1 stamping in Canada

Recommended Posts


I have recently received my COPR and will have to do my landing process shortly in canada before or on October 2020.

I am in US and initially was on F1 and then applied for H1B which got approved and started the H1B status from March 05,2020.
I have not left the country and do not have a H1B visa stamped.I 

And also my f1 visa got expired and I have two questions:

1. Can I go to Canada for h1b change of status H1b stamping in Canada?

or else 
2. Can I use AVR to reenter the country with approved I-797 document and current I-94 which is D/S as expiry date when I first entered United states on F1.


please advise what are the best options.

**During the COVID-19 lockdown, if you are able to travel, then prepare for quarantine on each side.

Yes, you can go to Canada for status change from F1 to H1b.

You can also reenter with AVS provided, you return within ~30days, include your quarantine days as well as delays if any by consulate.


Above all, I would recommend not to travel unless there's a pressing need that you have to travel at any cost, think in through, h1b comes into play only when you are happy & healthy without COVID-19.
