I have recently changed from J1 to H1B. My J1 visa expired 07/31/2020 and I have approved i797. Will I be able to use AVR to travel to Canada for 15 days? Planning to do soft landing (PR) and return back. Thank you for your help.

Hi Hari,
Did you look more into this/talked to a lawyer? I’m in a similar situation too.


@anil_am22 Can I use ARV for re-entry to US from Canada in Mar2021, if I have a visa appointment in India at a later date(for example in Jun2021)?
