Default Need advise-H1 stamping in Canada

Hi guys,
How do you go about this. I would appreciate your thaughts.
Person came to the US 7 years ago on B2. Changed to F1 and received his BS degree in the US, then changed to H1 (received a new I94). The person never left the US for the past 7 years and can show all the I20s while on F1 with no gaps. His I94 is valid until 1/2009. The person wants to go out to Canada for first-time H1 stamp. The person does not have a passport with a B2 visa on which she came as the passport expired and a new blank passport was issued in the US. The old passport is missing, but a copy of the B2 visa is available.

What are the chances of successful stamping in Canada? The person does not work for a consulting company. Please share your experiences/thaughts.

Thank You.

G

Default H-1 B stamping Name Check Delay

Folks,
I need some feedback from those unlucky ones who had faced delays in H-1 or H-4 stamping in India because the officer said that they are flagged for additioanal checks and a full fingerprinting is needed for FBI review.
My wife was stuck in 2004 for this at Delhi and got cleared in about 6 weeks. We are going back to India this year and she will need to get her H-1 B stamped (she has an approved H-1 Band she is working full time). We are concerned that she may get flagged again. Anyone who has been flagged once and than went again for stamping please share experience.

My question is If I want to go to Canada for H-1 Stamping, I should not have applied to Permanent Canada Residency? If I've applied for the Canadian Permanent Residency, I will not get the H-1 stamp approved/the visa to go to canada approved? My situation is I started filing for the Permanent Quebec Residency 2 years ago. So the Quebec Residency application is in process.
Thanks all

Wrong...rules of Canada are different from US.
Canada rules allows visitor entry if you show intent to leave Canada as per rules.

US rules are far stricter..intent not to ever immigrate/work etc.

I got Vsistor visa and wrote yes i have applied for PR Canada and sill got it
as i proved them i will come back to continue my existing job in us
though i do intend to immigrate to Canada.

The two issues of H1 and Canadian residency are different and no have affect whatsoever on each other. You can keep getting H1 stamping in Canada even after you become Canadian Permanent residence. You can continue to stay in the US and travel back and forth as well. I have been doing it and so can you.

Yes , one caution :- once you get Canadian PR , you' ll have to start maintaining residence with in 3 years if not sooner - Once your 3 year window closes , you lose you PR status.

So go ahead and apply for H1 visa appointments with no hesitation in this regard.

Has anyone been to Canada, specifically Ottawa, for H1-B stamping recently? If so, what is the process. I understand that you have to make an appointment in advance. Is there a web-based system for appointments or do you just have to call that 1-900-xxx-xxxx number?
