Default Applying for Canadian PR - H1B USA short tem - Few Queries

Hi Friends,

Request your advice for few queries I have wrt to applying for Canadian PR while in USA on H1B but less than one year -

# I have tried to calculate points and it comes to 73 while I believe minimum is 67. Do I stand a good chance still?

# Most Important - Even though I have an Indian Passport and I am in USA only on H1B (just few months) = I have heard that If I apply whilein USA I will be able to go through the process in 1 to 1/2 years. Else If I apply from India it might take 6-7 years and I am not interetsed in that long a duration.

Is my above understanding correct?

Pls Advise
regards
Sunando

1. Did you check to see if your experience qualifies for FSW1? You have to have at least 1 years experience in these occupations : http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigra...tions.asp#list
2. For applications submitted after 28/02/08 the processing time for Delhi, is actually shorter than Buffalo. see: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/informa...d-fed.asp#west
