Automatic visa revalidation
 
We plan to land in Canada as PR by flight and have a question about flying back to the US after 3-weeks.
Can it be done with a valid I-94 and H1/H4 approval letter, i.e, without an entry visa? We assume that it can be done when passing the border physically, but don't know if things are different if boarding a flight.
Thank you. This is also posted by Tom.

Yes, it can be done by are as well as by land. However, do be aware that you must
hold on to your I-94. Since you plan to land as a Canadian PR, it is quite possible
that the Canadian immigration officer will collect the I-94 at the same time. If you
ask him to return it to you, he may deny you admission as PR because you wouldn't
really plan to establish a residence in Canada.

Generally, a combination of Canadian PR and a US H-1B/H-4 is tricky at best; you may
have to decide between one or the other.
