Hi All and South African's living in the US.
My husband and I have a lifelong dream of moving to America, preferably New York and are looking to accomplish this dream over the next two years.
We've also been doing some research from our end and apply daily on the various job portals, one in particular is Indeed.com. I am a Project Coordinator and find that it has been a bit difficult with my job search...as this is the first step I would have to take before my visa application. I have even taken a further step in Googling various companies within New York and have found that they actually make contact with you much quicker than any of the job portals.
I also have two kids, age 7 and 1 and have also been struggling with my research and applications to various schools. Can anyone advise how this works? I would prefer a public school. I have made contact with the US Embassy in SA but they could only help me with regards to my visa application.
Also, are there any of you out there who have actually become permanent residents in the US and how long did it take?
What are the minimum requirements with regards to available funds to immigrating?
Looking forward to your response,
