First of all I want to thank all who take time to answer questions. I have benefited a lot from this forum. So a big thank you.

I have a question regarding using Automatic Revalidation while traveling to Canada for vacation.
Those who have experience can you share? What are the do's and don'ts?

I have a unique situation where I came to US on L1B visa but later changed to H1B visa (new employer). I have L1B visa stamp but not H1B stamp. I have a valid I-94 till 2016.

In my case (where there is L1 to H1 change), can I still use ARV?

Following is the link from CBP for your reference.

Before I travel to Canada, I changed my job.

After that I had to travel to India and came back with H1B stamp.

So I could not use ARV. But it looks like you should be fine but better ask your attorney to be 100% sure.

Hope that helps.
