B1/B2 while on H-1B


Recommended Posts


I recently moved to Canada from the US and I work remotely for the same firm as I was in the US. In the US, I am employed on a H-1B visa and get paid to a US Bank account (may not be relevant). I am an Indian passport holder and reside in Canada on a PR.

Now, I know I can visit the US on the valid H-1B when I am travelling for work. However, if I want to go for tourist purposes this may prove difficult (I can always club a business visit with a tourist visit). Can I apply for a tourist visa while i continue to posses an active H-1B visa?

Any help is appreciated. Apologies if it has been already asked on this form; I couldn't find any response to one other similar post so started a new one here.
