CIm Canadian, on TN-1 with H1-B approved but not stamped. Lawyer has advised I can go to a Canadian land border and return back to the US and state that I would like to enter on my H1-B and USCIS will stamp the visa. Wondering if I should do this today before the EO kicks in?

Apparently not. Lawyer said process should be identical to TN-1 (at a land border).

Hey OP - Just curious, why would you have a H1B as TN visa gives you more portability and avoid employer dependency?

like

TN is a non immigrant visa. Usually you have to switch to the H1 b to start PERM or time things carefully.

I did not cross the border yesterday. Legal informed me they can look into a Change of Status (COS) and thus no need for me to cross. Hope this helps anyone else following this thread.

Legal got back to me - Advised that I should technically be able to leave and re-enter presenting my H1B for admittance. However, they are advising against doing so (or at the minimum waiting to see how the EO is enforced) because there is a possibility that USCIS enforces the order more strictly than the language in the EO.

like

I think it takes longer than a day to get it stamped. Don’t you need to make an appointment?

I think it’s safer to stay with a TN at this moment. Is there a due date where you have to stamp by or something?

No due date. I was told I can let the TN run out (just renewed) and then activate the H1B. Was in the middle of recruiting and was waiting for some offers to formalize before making the switch.
