Re: A Fresh Start?

Hi, welcome to BE.

Can you be a bit more specific about your job, when you say ‘various roles in the insurance industry’, what kind of roles do you mean? As you can see from the link given above...

Re: The finances of moving...

Fab, that means you're eligible to enter the Express Entry pool. But it's a two stage process, once you're in that pool you then need to be scoring enough on the CRS to be in with a chance of being...

Re: Georgia on my mind

There is no direct route from E-2 to a green card, that's why it's known on here as the 'visa from hell', particularly for those with kids. If you have a child, I'd definitely look at other visa...

Are you sure you're not eligible for Class 2 contributions? The $16k sounds like Class 3.

Class 2 contributions are £3.05 per week = £158.60 per year, times the 13 years shortfall (although...

Re: Move to Canada - Starting the process

Just checking, when exactly did you submit your application? There was a draw 3 days ago, so you should have had an ITA in that if you applied last week?

Re: International Move from UK to USA, Idaho: Removal Firms, Tips etc

That does seem crazy expensive. We're currently in negotiations about a move, admittedly our shipping will be paid for by hubby's company, but they've given us an overview of all costs that they'll...

Re: Move to Canada - Starting the process

Yes, that fee is normal and you'd have to pay it for Ontario PNP. What was your final CRS score though? Above you said around 530, so I can't see any reason why you'd need to apply via a PNP, as if...

Re: Harry & Meghan are ‘stepping back’

My point is that her being an actress isn't an issue, plenty have passed through the royal family before.



Exactly. If they genuinely wanted privacy, they could have achieved that pretty...

Re: Petition expires 28/12/20... Help !

That's absolutely fair enough, but you do seem to be putting finding reasons to make it more difficult than it needs to be. Do you or your husband not drive?

Re: Harry & Meghan are ‘stepping back’

Again, Kate had FAR worse treatment in the press than Meghan did. As did her family who were ripped to shreds and weren't even the ones dating William. I can't actually think of a royal family member...

Re: Petition expires 28/12/20... Help !

Depends where you're going to in the US, some states have that requirement but not all. You don't have to fly to your intended long term destination, you could go to any airport couldn't you?

No, same thing. Have you asked your current employer if they'd be prepared to do that for you?

A LMIA will take 3-4 months usually, so if that's the route you decide to go down (and your employer...
