    Sure, please do. Also, please make sure to mention "Do I need to get initial H1b visa stamp on passport from the embassy if I want to enter after 2-3 months or just the initial i 797A &i 94 would be enough?" Thanks!

    Do we have any restrictions on how long can we stay in Canada on H1b? Also, do we need to file a new LCA as I know that your work location has to be within 50 miles or so to the address you are registered at. Correct me if I'm wrong on this?
