    Opt expiring...what options left after I-140 approval?

    You can go get a BSN to kill time and see if visa numbers open up or the situation improves and they pass some law.

    Please Help!! Temporary PR and am out of Canada

    You cant send recent photo by mail. Easiest option would be to enter canada by land border since your record of landing will be valid. You will have to rent a car and go. Greyhound or airplane wont let you board.

    Preemptive notification of Adminsitrative Processing

    I think most of the Canadian consulates used to do this prior to 2005 but stopped calling in advance in 2005. Maybe they are starting again.

    H1 Visa stamping experience- Canada

    Ottawa is very easy to get an appt. Montreal is also OK. Toronto is the toughest to get an appt. Appointments for Toronto are difficult to get. Try searching around 6 or 7 PM in the evening. Ive had good luck at that time in the past.
