Re: Nationality

Strictly speaking, very strictly speaking, in this country you are always a US citizen as the US doesn’t officially recognize dual citizenship.

Re: Healthcare in the USA - Houston

As others have said, it’s not all doom and gloom with healthcare here. The costs can (usually) not be avoided but I do find that overall it’s better value for money. Having been very, very sick here...

Re: May be moving to Houston - Few Questions

That’s the point we are making. Gas, chain restaurant/fast-food and hotels are about the only things that are cheaper here than the UK. Trust us. We live here and we’ve lived in the UK. Many of us...

Re: Dual US UK citizen entering US on expired passport?

I don’t know how much attention the airline check in staff pay to the place of birth on a passport or whether they are well-versed in the concept of jus Solis (since this does not apply in the UK...

Re: Dual US UK citizen entering US on expired passport?

It did happen, though. Many people who travelled overseas by air in the last two years were denied entry (albeit temporarily) because they tested positive for COVID before their return. A co-worker...

Re: Immigration advice

It would be somewhat of a red flag to me that the company has never been through this process before and is so clueless about it. Obviously someone has to be first but it sounds like they are not...

Re: Car insurance in California

Have you set the wheels in motion (pun intended) to get your CA licenses? Strictly speaking, you only have 10 days from the date you move to CA to get a license. In practice in the larger cities...

Re: Moving to USA (Florida) from UK - Very new to this

If you’re coming on a H-1B visa I probably wouldn’t sell the house in the UK. Might be better to rent it and then you’ve got somewhere to go back to should the company either release you (research...

Re: Moving from UK to LA - should we go for it?

I wouldn’t give up life in the UK for $90k for 2 anywhere in the US, least of all the west coast. Are there people here on that kind of money? Absolutely. Some are on even less. A couple making...

Re: Who Will Rent To K1 Couple Moving to USA from UK?

I second the previous poster about the CR-1. Why would you put yourself in a situation where you are in limbo for so long? The K-1 is ideal for people who can’t be together without it. You’re already...

Re: Confused re visa/work

So it could be that they are also thinking of the E-1 route or it could also be that they have made an assumption that you already qualify to work here through some other means, for example you have...

Re: UKparanurse's questions about nursing in Florida

Do you all have visas that allow you to stay for 6 months? Or are you USCs? I don’t think that has been answered yet.

If you are planning to come as tourists for 6 months (let’s assume you have...

Re: NHS Covid Pass after moving

Why would you need that here anyway? Just apply for the certificate (paper) and carry that with you. COVID vaccine evidence is on paper here. No one would have a clue what to do with your digital...

Re: How to travel to UK with no USA passport

So you’re going to start off life as a citizen by lying to a government official just to jump the passport queue? Great one.

FWIW I got my citizenship in the middle of COVID also. Called st the...

Re: Visit to UK for Mums birthday

Not everyone born in the UK is a British citizen. In “the old days” of jus soli that was the case. Now the law is that the person must either have British parents or be born to people who are...

Re: i130 approved. Waiting for NVC interview in the UK

There is a big backlog as IR-5 visas were suspended for some time but the NVC continued to process applications. So they stacked up at the embassy. Once the backlog is clear then things should move...

Re: E2 visa - Buy a Franchise and let someone else run it

Why would you need to move here if you’re not going to run it? Or do you mean to ask whether you need a visa in order to purchase a business here, even if you don’t intend to move?

Re: I moved last month and I have still so many questions

Make it at home from good quality cream. Chef John has a good “recipe” (although it’s more a one-line instruction than an actual recipe).
