Immigration Issues/J1 to H1B
I'm currently on a J1 in my Academic Training period working for a company. As I was subject to the two year home residency requirement I have obtained a waiver from USCIS in June. My H1B petition (consular processing) has also being approved by USCIS. Now I wanted to know if I can go to a different consulate (H1B petition has a different consulate notification in India) say Canada and get the H1B stamp to activate my H1B status ?
Thank you for the wonderful service !
You can try and schedule an appointment there but it is discretionary with any consulate except your home country. They may not even allow scheduling a visa appointment and they may let you interview but decide that it would be better to refer you to your home country where they can better investigate your credentials.
