Anyone here got first H1B stamping done in Canada? No time for India trip. On J visa if that matters.

Why do you want to get your Visa stamped if you're not planning to leave the country?

My J expires in October and I my H1b is consular option, which means it gets activated only if I get it stamped.

It is always a safer option to get it stamped in your home country. That's what my Visa and immigration team told me

Yeah EY1, but I can’t do that hence asking how easy or hard the alternative is

After 3 rounds of interviews (total 4 inc recruiter screen) over the past 5 odd weeks, just got told by a T2 consulting firm that they doesn’t sponsor H1B visas which is frustrating because they were aware of my visa situation right at the start. Sigh 😢. Understand it happens but frustrating nonetheless given the time and effort invested.

D fishes. If you didn’t get selected in H1B lottery, and this was your last attempt, worry not. I too sailed on the same boat. Now I am on day 1 CPT. There is a brighter side to this. IM/email me for more details.

This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
