Thread: Switching from TN to H1b

  1. #1
    Can I renew my Canadian TN visa while h1b is pending

  2. #2
    Can I renew my Canadian TN visa while h1b is pending

  3. #3
    No, you can't. If you do get an extended TN you abandon your H petition. If a lawyer prepared the H-1B, hopefully s/he was aware of your TN status and its expiration date and dated the H-1B petition accordingly.

    Why are you seeking to change/renew your TN?

    My TN will be expiring in October, if the Hb1 visa is not approve by then i will have to renew TN visa at the border

    You can have your employer renew it for you by sending an I-129. That way no trip to the border is required. It does take a couple of months to process though so if the renewal is coming soon, you're out of luck.

  6. #6
    Wait for your change of status application to H-1B status to be approved. Do not seek an extension of your TN status.

    If your change of status application has been well-timed, there should be no time period in which you fall out of status.
