    I do not think it will speed up the process. It does not matter how much they say that they are focusing on applicants already physically in Canada, the truth is that they are not working on FSW applications and nothing will make them change their mind.

    ***>>> March 2020 AOR <<<***

    You can find the official information here. For what concern India I am not sure, there may be some ban on flights directly from India to Canada, but you should check as this changes quite often. Also, keep in mind that the rules for entering US are different. Currently you will have no issues...

    Changing your country of residence to USA will not speed up your application.

    And the applications are fully digital and online, LOL!

    FSW WORLDWIDE

    They processed CEC applications, created a new path for permanent residency and invited and processed more than 100.000 applications since I sent mine. So my apologies for being annoyed, but the lack of officers has nothing to do with the backlog. I am not against new FSW draws, but if...

    FSW WORLDWIDE

    The backlog is essentially ONLY FSW candidates, with thousands of us stuck in various stages. And the whole "some applications are more complicated" has nothing to do with it. I gave all my documents in March 2020, no complicated situations and I am still waiting.

    As for now you can travel with no issues from US to Canada, there is no more travel restriction if you are fully vaccinated (I personally went there for a couple of days last week). You just need a negative molecular COVID test taken less than 72 hours before boarding the flight (or crossing the...

    H1B travel to USA after completing soft-landing in Canada

    This is a really good news. Did you ask specifically about crossing by land? Can you share more details about what they told you?

    H1B travel to USA after completing soft-landing in Canada

    I think you need to be careful about it. Crossing the land border is not the same a flying and I believe there are restrictions for temporary residents (such as H1B holder). Edit: I am honestly having a hard time in understanding which are the requirements for re-entering US by land from...

    ***>>> February 2020 AOR <<<***

    According to all the last interactions that I and several other members of this forum had with IRCC in the last weeks, it does not look like there is any plan at the moment. I personally hope they will start formulating plans soon (September-October), but in terms of timeline for file approval...

    I think this is not true, since there are FSW inland waiting since 2019 and CEC outland that were processed. However it is impossible to say for sure and at this point it is a matter of opinions.

    Actually, it is kind of the opposite. There is no "Outland" in immigration law, but every stream is treated differently. They focused on CEC so far and it looks like they are focusing on PNP next. FSW applications seems to be a the end of the list.

    I do not think it is as simple as that. Just as an example, you can read here. I think it is a tricky situation, which I would like not to face; the issue is that I am almost forced to apply for Green Card, since IRCC cannot provide any timeline for the Canada PR processing....

    ***>>> February 2020 AOR <<<***

    Yes, together with having to file taxes in US even if living abroad, LOL!

    ***>>> February 2020 AOR <<<***

    Yes, in practice you can apply for both, but then you can keep only one at the time (at least in principles).

    From my knowledge medicals can be extended only once, at least according to the policy used by IRCC in the past. If they expire again they will ask you for new medical exams. I would personally suggest to go for upfront medicals when you are close to the expiration of the extension or to wait...

    I am not sure, but it may be for US Citizens only (with US passport). In any case I am Italian, so I do not need the visa anyways.

    ***>>> February 2020 AOR <<<***

    Thank you for your answer. In principle, however, you should not be permanent resident of two countries at the same time, right? Also, I would need to give up either US or Canadian PR, eventually.

    My wife is American, so I should be able to get it relatively quick (I think about 1-1.5 years). It would be an adjustment of status from H-1B. I will tag legalfalcon later, I know he has tons of post to check and I do not want to bother him if anyone else has an answer, lol!
