Me, my wife, and US Born baby, live in the US on H1b with expired visa stamping and valid extended I797. We have our COPRs expiring in a few months, however, with constantly changing travel restrictions we want to land in Canada and return back to the USA to wrap up things here. We are exploring how we can fly into Toronto and possibly return to the US on the same/next day through AVR option.
Our 2 main concerns:
- IRCC website says we must “be coming to Canada to settle permanently”, thinking if this means we cannot return back on the same day/week/ or for next 14 days?
- Are there risks involved with AVR (Automatic Visa Revalidation) option to fly back into the US.
Has anyone done this recently, it would be great if you can post your experience.
