H1B

Anyone here who has the the Canadian COPR and needs to land in Canada anytime soon? I originally planned to do a landing to get the PR and come back to the US. I am on an h1b though and anxious that re-entry into the US will problematic. Anyone in the same boat?

I did a soft landing in March. However, shortly after, Canada restricted its borders. Please check with CIC prior to flying into Canada. Going to Vancouver is more practical as immigration is very smooth and it’s fairly a short trip, if you are in Bay Area. If your H1-B is valid and US has not restricted entry from Canada, it should not be a problem.

I’m in the same situation. My COPR expires next month, filled a webform because of the uncertainty with returning - still waiting for a response. I’m on STEM Opt and have an expired F1 visa. I also don’t want to quarantine for 2 weeks in Canada doing nothing.

Did you get a new I94 when you reenter? I have an approved H1 extension with attached I94 but the visa expires soon. So if I reenter before the visa expires, I94 has to stay the same, else I’ll have to leave the country for stamping

Yes. They will issue a new I-94.

Why is the reentry to US a problem of you have a valid h1b? Note you are required to do a 14 day home quarantine upon entry into Canada

Yeah re-entry should not be an issue, just being paranoid there. Do we have to do a 14 day quarantine needed if you stay or can you leave immediately?

Do you know how long from when you get the COPR to when you have to land on Canada?

My wife just asked me why don’t H1B folks protest the way DACA/BLM folks do. All I could say was we are afraid of repo cushions and will not have widespread support like the other movements, the odds that even Indian Americans will come out to support us very low

Dumb question - Can you apply for an H1B extension after finishing the 6 year quota, based on an I-140 from your previous employer, or would you need an approved I-140 from the current firm?

If I didn’t know that Trump was born into a lot of money, I would have thought that he came out of the ghettoes of Brooklyn.

He is a pure manifestation of the most prejudice and racist beliefs of his base supporters who hate the diversity of America deep inside but afraid to voice it out loud. Just my opinion.
