Re: Help - not sure if I have had the right advice

This is quite interesting. We've recently shipped my furniture from the UK (Well, actually it hasn't left the UK just yet).

We have been advised I will need to enter the USA before the goods....

Re: No bachelors degree but have a Masters and Diplomas, can I still get a Job?

I'm in a similar position, the only time you will encounter an issue is if you want to enrol in another educational program in the US.

I have no Bachelors but do have a PgDip

Re: Marrying a US Citizen

The advice so far is sound.

Nothing wrong with him wanting to live in the US and marry a United States citizen in principle.

To remain legal, he has three choices. All of these assume he is...

Re: Cost of Living/Salary

Yes, I don't doubt it can be done. I have to say looking at apartment prices in the Springs the result is very similar. Although there is VERY few buses in the Springs.

Re: Cost of Living/Salary

I would be exceedingly shocked if anyone could sensibly live on $18,912 (or 125% of that figure). $23650.

That's a monthly income of $1970, taking a crude 33% away in tax that leaves you with...

Re: Cost of Living/Salary

35k! Wow, I hope I don't end up low down.

When people are quoting 50-75k breathing - is that household. I must admit we are aiming for a minimum of 80k between us.

My better half also makes...

Re: Entering under the VWP while in possession of an Immigrant Visa

Essentially - you've hit the nail on the head, there doesn't have to be a good reason.

Logically thinking, I would imagine it is to do with a visa outranking the visa waiver program. The VWP by...

Re: Entering under the VWP while in possession of an Immigrant Visa

The answer it is it is possible and I have read examples of where people have done this successfully.

However, the POE Officer has the right to insist you use the visa in your passport, and will...

Re: Buying Cars after K1 Entry

Rene - that's my understanding. The majority of people who use it are on the H1B or L1 and generally will have their business give them a rental for a while.

Most K1s wouldn't be able to use it as...

Re: Buying Cars after K1 Entry

Yes, I do - but she already has an outstanding car loan. I wouldn't want to put extra pressure on her credit. That's purely unfair.

I definitely don't need new. However, I am working on the understanding that getting a loan is almost impossible when I arrive.

Re: The famous 221g

Thanks Rene, what's a "watch list" is this basically suspected criminals? Terrorism?

I'm hoping this issue won't affect me as I have an exceedingly long (and thus, reasonably unusual) name.

Great news, well done Bally.

Re: Buying Cars after K1 Entry

Yes, I need to go and try a few of them on my next visit to the US.

The Compass appears to have reasonably mixed reviews. I've driven a Cherokee which I was okay with (I didn't own it, however)

Re: Am I a British citizen? (Or could I easily become one?)

My understanding is that usually it would be by Birth. What were your great-grandparents doing in South Africa? Were they permanent residents at the time of the birth?

Re: Am I a British citizen? (Or could I easily become one?)

Traditionally that is the case, but as long as they are a GB citizen "otherwise than by descent" then you will be able to do it.

It feels like it's probably a long shot in this instance but that...
