Can I travel to Canada from USA when my H1-B (picked in lotter) is under processing?


New Member

I recently received my CoPR and I am yet to do the border crossing from the US. My H1-B was picked up in the lottery for FY19 and RFE was issued. My employer is working on responding to that RFE. I have a valid F1 visa & i20 till May 2019.

My CoPR also expires in May 2019.
1. Can I travel to Canada (do the border crossing & return to US in few days) when my H1B is under processing?
2. If yes, should I travel only by road or can I also fly in?
3. Will there be any delays/hold on my H1B petition?

Thank you in advance for your valuable thoughts.
