The USA-Forum is a great place to meet many people who have already emigrated to the States or who are thinking of living and working in America. You can benefit from the experiences of others, both expats and intending immigrants, and is an invaluable source of information on all matters concerning US immigration and visas and moving to America.
It provides a free on-line meeting place for the exchange of information on emigrating to the USA as well as invaluable advice from current and potential immigrants and expatriates currently living and working in America. This site, which concentrated originally just on Florida but has been expanded to encompass all of the States of the USA., has been in existence for ten years. During that time it has helped thousands of people to emigrate to the USA and experience the American lifestyle. So wherever you see yourself living the American dream you will find someone able and willing to give you the benefit of their experience.
Here are a few of the questions answered by the Forum members:-
i. I have been looking at some US Visa Attorney sites and it seems I can't qualify for permanent immigration status on an E-2 visa to Florida or any of the other States? Is that correct?
ii. I want a green card but that's only with emigrant status and I see the E-2 is a non-immigrant investor visa only, I think.
iii. I keep seeing the word marginality when I am reading about E-2 visa. What does this mean?
iv. How much of an investment, in US dollars, does it take to buy a business for a working visa?
v. How many American employees do I need?
vi. I have been talking with a US visa consultant who has advised that we could apply for L-1 intra-company transfer visa status. I'd really like a second opinion on what I need for L-1 visa and how it is different from other visas?
vii. How do I get a social security number after getting the E-2 visa from the American Embassy? Can I do it from England before I move out to the US?
viii. I am on E-2 visa and the I-94 in my passport is due to expire in three months. Do I have to leave the USA or can this be renewed via USCIS?
ix. Is it true that as a resident of Florida I can get discounts on the Theme parks such as Disney Sea World, Universal, Epcot and the Magic Kingdom? How much discount can I get?
x. We have a villa very close to the Florida resorts in Orlando and virtually next door to Disney. Can I advertise on this site? It's a great rental for someone.
xi. We have pre-existing conditions. How do I get US Medical Insurance? I it true that I cannot get it for six months after moving to the US?
xii. What's a TIN and how do I get it. Is it from the Department of State or from the IRS?
xiii. I would like to study in the US. How do I get student visa? I believe it is called an F-1 visa. Can I work on this visa?
