Re: Leasing/Financing a Car with Expiring H1B

Interesting. The problem I’ve run into before is that my SSN cars says it’s for work only and when the finance dept sees that, they ask for a copy of my visa.

Re: Car leasing with no credit history in US?

Talking of International Autsource...I'm working with them now to find a car.

I've discovered that a lot of the makes listed on their website do not lease to people without a tier 1 credit...

I'm currently living in St Andrews and there's no sign of Donald Trump...yet! A few more major hotels moving into the area, however, so who knows what will happen in the next few years!

Hi everyone,

Apologies if this question has been asked before. I've had a good search, but can't seem to find the exact answer.

Re: California- J-1

Hi James,

Re: H1B cap full...any alternatives?

I may be wrong, but it looks like the extra quota for masters students is only for those with US masters. I am currently studying in the UK.
