How to move to the United States for permanent residence from russia 2016.
Many people ask me what it takes to move to the US, but, alas, there is no specific answer to this question. Here, everyone chooses the path according to the possibilities and desires.
Here’s a small simple post “How to move to the US & # 187; for Dummies. ? So say the introduction to what is happening!
The first thing you need to decide on is a visa. Re-read the information on different forums and sites will have a lot. And as a result, you need to choose the visa that is most likely to be given to you and for which you will have a chance to move to live in America: you are a student and want to go to school or you want to work at once, you are traveling as a tourist or by invitation from your relatives, you are hired to work a large company or you decided to participate in the draw of green cards. There are a lot of visa options and familiarization with them is a very long and laborious work. Therefore, this business should be approached with all seriousness and prudence, because this is the first and most important step.
Second, this is the submission of documents for a visa (search for a program, work, the Green Card Lottery and more). Either it’s filling out a questionnaire on the site for a lottery or an interview at the company’s office, for example, providing a program for students or helping to find work in the US.
Third, the collection of documents and preparation for the interview. The list of documents for all your visas is mine, you can read about it on the official website of the US Embassy or in more detail on any major forums devoted to immigration to America. On small and unknown sites, promising “permanent residence in the US from Russia for free without sms & # 187; it is better not to count, t. information on them may be old and unreliable. Therefore, be attentive to the sources of information on the Internet & # 8212; There are a lot of nonsense, like deceivers. Also it is worth considering that almost all documents will have to be translated into English.
Fourth, decide on the city where you want to go and where it’s easier to find a job and get settled. Most often, people who are wondering how to leave for the US for permanent residence? going to emigrate, looking for friends and relatives living in America. Even if you do not like this city and the state, in the future it is always possible to move, and for the first time the main thing is somewhere to get settled. Before moving I read many stories from people who interviewed and gathered in the states and many of them went not even to friends, but to some distant acquaintances of their acquaintances, but who could meet them at the airport and help at least a little on the first time. Such support is very important in a completely different country. Of course, there are other options: if you’ve been in America as a tourist and are already familiar with many moments of life here, then moving without support, of course, will be easier. And also many students go on working and tourist programs, where they are met by a guide and they immediately settle into the hostel. Of course, there are people who come to America, without guides, friends and relatives, settle down and live. But they are few and their courage and ingenuity can only be amazed? (also note, at the interview they are asked to whom you are going and who will meet you if you get Green Card).
Fifth, to know in advance the prices for accommodation, to look for vacancies on sites and possible salaries, to prepare a resume in English or documents for admission to study. That is, be ready for the next steps after the move.
Sixth, medical board and payment for services. Many visas will require medical examination in hospitals. More about this, too, you need to read in the features of your visa. Also, the medical board costs money, you also have to pay for the interview, or if you are traveling under the program & # 8212; there are also certain contributions. In monetary details, I do not want to go, because all the formalities are constantly changing and prices, alas, are growing.
Seventh, if you have been interviewed, you get a visa. Be sure to check it for errors (Americans very often jot down mistakes in important documents). Now it’s time to book tickets. We flew through Aeroflot, bought tickets for half a year. When we looked at the cost of tickets on the site already closer to departure, the price of one (!) Ticket was 3 times more expensive. So with the purchase it is better not to delay. You can also fly with a transfer, these tickets are cheaper. If you fly back and forth (for example, as a tourist), then such tickets to both sides are also cheaper than a one-way ticket.
Eighth, the accumulation of money and the opening of a bank account with a VISA card. For example, in Los Angeles, few people use cash, and often buy coffee for small money or pay in parking lots. But everyone goes with plastic cards. We drove about 300 bucks cash, although it turned out to be a lot and not necessary. But it is better to calculate some necessary part of the money and take it with you in dollars. Maybe you’ll have to pay for a taxi or buy a snack, anything can happen.
Ninth, collection of suitcases. It is better to start this business in advance and add at least some of the things. We collected things at the last minute, because there was no way to start packing in the past. I had a diploma defense the day before my departure, and after that I ran around to throw things into my suitcase, and my husband was still working and was piled up with deeds. In the end, we all put down the night before the flight, and as a result of “# 8212; forgot something and got a lot of unnecessary? Another important point, to acquire weights, is to weigh the suitcases. There are restrictions on baggage, and if the weight exceeds the required norms, you will have to pay extra. Before departure, be sure to check what and how to carry on the airline’s website, because they can change the customs conditions, and you and your suitcases will get into unnecessary trouble and lose time. We also shared a portion of the cash and piled it in just the right way on different bags, and in their pockets they took photocopies of their passports.
Tenth, how to go to America & # 8212; is it to fly away, and upon arrival arrive customs, and if you are a Green Card recipient, prepare to spend at least three hours at the airport?
P.S.! And, of course, English is a must know. Do not forget to learn it all the time.

Hello! I would like to know about transporting things across the border. I have a lot of things that can hardly be carried away (only a collection of stones weighs a lot), and I can not leave them in Russia. How much money can be needed to transport things to the US, and is it even possible? How to do it, and what will it take?
Hello! Either take extra baggage, rates look at the airline’s website, or you can send it by mail (as an option to look for some kind of trucking). It all depends on the specific weight and dimensions, but it will not be cheap, it’s a preponderance of luggage, that the delivery is even just the mail of Russia.
Hello. I would like to ask you, too. I live in england (although I myself am from Latvia and with a Latvian passport) and study for a bachelor’s degree in criminology and criminal justice. After graduation, I am thinking of moving to usa. Do you think I really get a visa? Thank you.

Hello, Stacy! I read that you have a tourist education. I do not know whether to say “unfortunately” & # 187; me too. Since you say that it is useless in America. Tell me please, how better to try to move? How did you do it? Can I use it as a tourist visa? I went to college and this year I get a bachelor’s degree. Both diplomas are tourism. I’m confused.
