Default Re-entering US from Canada

Hi All,

I am Indian came to US on F1 with visa stamping valid till Oct 2004.
Now I am working in US and I have got my Approved H1 and I-94, from
INS. I have clean status.

I have to go to Canada for short visit (2-3 days), not for visa
stamping. Can I cross Canada and re-enter US ?

Any suggestions will be sincerely appreciated.

You need to apply for a visitors visa to enter Canada at a Canadian
Consulate.

If you have every thing you need to enter canada, you would be fine coming back in to US as long as you stay for less than 30 days and do not apply for a US visa in Canada.

Thank you PMM for early response. I am also a landed immigrant of
Canada. I want to go to Canada to apply for PR Card. My question is
Can I re-enter US on valid F1 visa stamping on passport and valid H1
status in US and Valid I-94. I have maintained clean status so far.

Thank you
Udupi

Hi Udupi,
I gues you and i are in the same boat. I also am on an H1 Visa status
that i changed from F1. I dont have the H1B visa stamped in my
passport. I am also a candian landed immigrant and want to go to
Canada to apply for PR Card. Have you heard any news from other people
who have gone to Canada and used teh automatic visa revalidation rule
to come back to the US. Have you heard anyone being deined entry on
that basis. Also any experience from other people that you might have
heard from regarding H1B visa stamping from Toronto or any other US
Consulate in Canada.
Please let me know if you have. I am in the same boat as you are and
trying to get all the facts straight before i go to Canada.
Thanks for you help

Hello both of you,

I am in the same both too. I need to apply for PR Card by December 31. I have got an expired F1 with H1-B status (no visa stamp). I basically would like to apply for my PR card within 30 days so I can get back to the US. Any problems for people using automatic visa revalidation? I am not from the 5 countries that are considered as sponsors of terrorism. I would like to know if there are any risks of being denied entry to the US. I would appreciate past experiences and (or) advices.

Thank you.


PS. By the way, I am perfectly bilingual (French-English) and actively looking for a position in Canada. I Hold a graduate degree in Statistics from Canada and have experience in survey sampling in the US. Thanks.
