Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

Simply admitting I made a mistake and gave inaccurate information, so yes, I believe that warrants an additional post.

Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

Just to clarify, I was incorrect about what you need to show. As Noorah101 mentioned, you only need to show proof of funds for the first year. I still stand by how much you'll need for the entire...

Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

You appear ungrateful of the advice given, so I wont waste my time posting in this thread again.

Once again, best of luck.

Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

As mentioned before, it doesn't matter about your calculations, it matters what the US immigration want. Between you and your parents, you'll need £40k-£50k in the bank.

A friend of mine attends...

Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

Here's my rough workings.

You must show you have $17k per year for tuition including books, health insurance and room/board. It doesn't matter that you're living with a friend. I'd imagine you...

Re: British Nursery Teacher

I do not believe you can get sponsored by a public school in the US. You can however apply for positions at private schools.

The British Schools of America hire and sponsor teachers who are...

Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

If the VO asks who you are staying with (and you are staying with your girlfriend), then you need to state your girlfriend. Do not lie and say a friend.

Even though you are living with a...

Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

I agree, it's hard for a 19 year old to show ties to the UK. If you can get written confirmation from your employer that you have a job to go back to, then this would work very well in your favour,...

Re: F1 Visa to H1-B1 (kinda weird situation)

This sounds like a quick way to get yourself a lifetime ban from the US.

As you are completing your masters, it's likely you qualify for Optional Practical Training (OPT). You can work for 12...

Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

You must have very wealthy parents if they can fund two of their children to attend university in the US for 4 years each, so I'd imagine the funds aren't a problem, as you'd be able to prove you or...

Re: Girlfriend lives in States, I want to move

£24k is unlikely enough funds to allow you to do an undergraduate degree, let alone a masters afterwards. Undergraduate degrees are 4 years in the US. The F-1 visa has very strict limitations on when...

Re: US Banking for Non-Resident?

Yes, you'll get a debit card. If you've got an Advance or Premier account in the UK, then you'll get an Advance or Premier account in the US. They also use your internal credit score.

Re: US Banking for Non-Resident?

HSBC seems a good option.

If you're currently a HSBC UK customer, just phone them and they'll open a US HSBC account for you (may be a charge if you're not a Premier customer). If you're not a...

Re: VWP advice, too soon?

There is no correct and accurate answer to this question. It's up to the point of entry officer when you arrive in the US. Some people seem to suggest spending at least the same amount of time out of...

Re: HELP... 21 Year old looking for a GC

To study at CUNY for an undergraduate degree, I'd estimate you'd need around $55k-$65k a year, so let's average that at $60k. Undergraduate degrees are 4 years in the US, so you'd need to have $240k....

Re: HELP... 21 Year old looking for a GC

Without trying to echo what Noorah101 has posted, you have pretty much ruled out all possibilities of permanently living in the US. The Diversity program may be a possibility depending on where you...

Re: Finding it all too overwhelming

As others have mentioned, you do not qualify for a H1B visa. You either need a degree or 12 years progressive experience, as well as applying for a job/position that requires a degree.

Re: Hi / Introducing Myself!

Sorry, I was referring to if they were to marry. A company transfer would likely be L visa allowing the spouse to apply for L2 and work authorisation.
