Currently in Canada, waiting for stamping - Can I apply for I-485 while in Canada?

Recommended Posts

I moved to Canada a year back before my H1b extension denial. My recent H1b extension got approved but waiting for stamping. Only my kids are US citizens.

I am now eligible to apply I-485 in EB2 category. As I am not sure when I will get visa stamped, I am wondering if there are any options to apply I-485 while in Canada. Please advice!

I am not eligible for drop box stamping in India.

That would be Consular Processing. If the GC sponsor is the same company for which you would be filing AOS, then CP is an option.

No. Adjustment of Status (I-485) is only for people who are in the US. If you want to immigrate from outside the US, you would do Consular Processing.
