I'm Mohamed Kandil, a medical student from Egypt
I've both B1/B2 & J1 visa on my Egyptian passport
I'm going to USA, New York next August, I'll be on B1 status.
I will need to change my status to J1 while in the U.S. and have only 22 days to do that (30/09 - 21/10/2012)
I am planning to get my J1 visa stamped in a 3rd country (Mexico/Canada), I can not go to my home country for some reason.
My problem will be how to enter this 3rd country, do i get a Canadian tourist visa on US border at Niagara falls? Is it easy, for a non-US citizen, to apply for Canadian tourist visa at Canadian consulate in Buffalo, NY? Will be there any problem in stamping my J1?
Can you please advise if this can be done?
This is not a US immigration question

Although this is a US law forum, your facts are confusing. You state that you have a J in your passport & then ask about stamping in Canada.
Bottom line, consult with an attorney.
