    Answered . Hi there- check with the consulate first. They keep changing the rules. Last I heard, consulates in Canada were only stamping H1s is you had a previously stamped H1, else you had to go to your home country. If they are still following this, you can easily find out before you go there and get stuck.

Keep in mind, however, that if for some reason the visa is refused you will not be allowed back into the U.S. and will have to consular process in your home country. Consult with an experienced immigration attorney for advice specific to your situation.
