Is it permitted to enter the US on a tourist visa and while you are here, can you start working since H1B approval has been received? The reason I ask is that my some time is needed to set up an apartment, get SSN etc. and it would be easier to come a little early while H1B is being processed. Can you get the H1B stamped in the passport later in Canada? Thanks in advance!

Yes, its possible. The only conditions are - your port of entry MUST be Newark, NJ & you MUST rent the apartment at Whitehall Gardens, Somerset.

If you dont meet any of these, USCIS will not allow you to convert from visitor to H1B
