Hello Sir/Madam ,

My wife and I are working in the USA on H1 status. I have a valid H1 visa from my previous
employer and a I-797 notice of approval from my current employer. My wife has an H4 visa
and a approval notice for H1 status from her current employer.

We will be landing in Canada as Permanent residents holding passports from India
in 3 weeks.

Do we need to apply for visas at the vancouver consulate, since we will be permanent
residents of canada from a commonwealth country ?

Can we directly proceed to the US border post in Washington State present our H1 status
notice of action papers and proof of PR status in Canada and enter the USA ?

Since we will be in Canada for a short while ( 1 week ) , do we have to hold on to the
I-94s and not submit them at the airport or at the border post ?

thank you very much

You will need your passports, I-797's and your IM-1000 showing your landed status. I
suggest you keep your I-94's also because you never know what can go wrong that day and
it is safer.

If you have I94, just show them that driving through BC-Washington and you should be fine.
But if you lost I94, you will have to pay $6 dollar for a replacement.

Since India is a commonwealth country, you can come in with I797 and passport, I belive...

Did this many times and no problems or hassals whatsoever. The officer don't even ask a
single question.
