    Hi,

    I am currently on H1 and would like to change my status to H4. I am planning to go to Canada for visa stamping. Since, it is not a renewal or automatic visa revalidation and I will be applying for a fresh H4 visa, Is it ok if I go to Canada or do I need to go to my home country to get it done?

    You can go to Canada for stamping. I have seen candidates successfully getting H1 to H4 and vice versa stamping in Canada.

    It is completely valid for you to go to Canada as long as you can show supporting documents that your spouse is maintaining their H-1B status.
