I'm a Canadian working in the USA with TN visa. I applied for H1B (cap). I went to Cancun, Mexico for 6 days last week (Last week of April 2019 - First week of May 2019) and when I came back, I was told by my lawyer that I was selected for H1B (ie. "Case is received"). The notice date on my I797-C is my 2nd day of vacation in Mexico.
In short, timeline looks like this:
- I went to Mexico
- Selected for H1B
- I came back from Mexico
I believe I will be put on the H1B Consular Processing because of my vacation to Mexico. Am I right? If so, can I freely travel to my home country (Canada) this summer?
