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?

Thank you!
