Default H1 Stamping & Canadian PR Landing together?

Hi,
I need some info. about whether it is good idea to do Canadian PR Landing and H1B extension stamping in one visit to Canada?

Here is the situation:
------------------
1. I got Canadian PR approval. I have submitted passport for stamping. After They mail it back to me, I need to travel to Canada(want to go to Vancouver) and at the border apply for PR Landing forms.
2. I have H1B extension approval but need stamping as I need to travel to INdia later this year on vacation. So when I go to canada, can I go to US Consulate apply for stamping and come back to US with same stamping???

I dont have AP so I cannot come back to US without the stamping. So what is the best solution in this case.?

I need to land in Canada before May 2008.

Your help will be greatly appreciated
Thanks

You should be able to do your landing and H1 stamping with no problem.

I have done the same last year. Process is very smooth and of course not dependent on each other.

Default U can do It.

I did it successfully in Toronto.
While entering Canada I showed them my Canadian Immigration papers and told them I will bring my stuff from US in second round. I did not tell Canadian Immigration officer that I came for US visa stamp.
However You can tell at US consulate that you landed in Canada as Canadian Immigrant and while coming back in US at the border. They won't mind.

Good Luck!

Thumbs up PR & H1 Stamping

I did the same with my family in 05. Pretty simple. Go for it. Good Luck. Make sure MARK YES to the question of Your Status in Canada as Permanent Landed Immigrant while filling up the form for H1 intervies at American Embassy.

Make sure you take landing papers to US embassy with you to prove that you entered Canada legally. There should not be any problems.

You can do landing and H1-Stamping at the same time in canada. You do not need stamped visa to come back to US from Canada as long as you have your H1 extension papers with you and you come back in 30 days

Yes that is ME..:-) I am still contemplating risking my FP (anytime soon) against my H1B stamping name check that could come up or use AVR and go back for H1B stamping later.
The same appointment could be used by my wife to stamp her H4.
testtesttest has gone to Canada today for PR stamping and he is going to use AVR to reenter US. I might do the same right now.

For me I have a arrest record for driving with suspended license (non payment of ticket) for which I was fingerprinted and photographed though I have police clearance letter from SJPD.

If you are sure that you do not have any records like this then go for stamping of H1 also. It is perfectly OK to get both PR landing and H1B stamping done.

I may be wrong but I remember reading that sometime back US made rule that the h1 stamping can be done only at your home country (country of nationality). So doubel check on that.

Default Best canadian city for H1 Stamping & Canadian PR Landing together?

Thanks to everyone who replied.

I have got sufficient replies so it looks like it is OK to do both H1 Stamping and landing together.

Do you have any suggestions for the canadian places. I heard Vancouver is popular.
Is one place better than another one..

Any info will be really helpful
