New members of the USA forum, introduce yourself here – 1st quarter of 2017

Hi all,

Newbie on the USA forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in the USA if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

PD : The thread New members of the USA forum, introduce yourself here – 4th quarter of 2016 continues below!

Hello everybody, my name is Patrick. I am German national and I moved to the US from London/UK in 2009. Me and my family absolutely love living here. I run a financial planning practice out of Stamford, CT and midtown Manhatten and my passion is to help expats plan for their financial security here in the US. I know how unique the system here in the US is and I know from personal experience that it can be a bit overwhelming. If anybody has any questions, feel free to contact me.

Hello everybody, My name is Mahdi, AKA "Accro d'Art", I'm 24 yo from north Africa. As it appears in my nickname I'm an Artist, Art admirer, a designer and an Architect who's planning  to move to the USA, so, if any one has any ideas to help, do not hesitate messaging me.

Hi everyone
My Name is Patricia, though it apears as Bonfigliano on my page as  I could not use my name when registering. I am from South Africa originally I hope to get a chef job in San Francisco. I am passionate about cooking. I am  available if anyone has an opportunity. Thanks

Hi I am Ivann I live in South Africa and I am a job searcher, I am looking for work in the United States. My dream and main goal is to join the United States military but for that I need to be able to work and live there legally so I'm searching for a job in the States to get my foot in.

Hello Everyone! My name is Veronica. I'm Hungarian and have always been living and working in Hungary. The reason of joining is quite simple. My husband is from NJ and even though we've been living in Budapest, Hungary we are planning to move to the US.  I have to start my life all over again in a new country so since I'm a big planner I would totally appreciate if I could chat about my possibilities and options of my new life in the States job and life wise. Thanks in advance. :)

Well, 1st of all, Mr Trump is in office & to be very blunt.......He doesn't like foreigners!!!
Todays news tells us of 5 foreigners being sent back home when they arrived at the USA immigration control at different airports.....(they were all Muslims BTW!)
Then you'll need to get a visa, & even though you're married you'll need to prove how long you & your husband.
have known each other.
Then you'll need a temporary tax number, & a bank account.
As to which city to guide you to, your husband will dictate that seeing as how he's an American.
Job wise, unless you have qualifications that are recognized in the USA you will be doing a minimum wage job.
Good luck.

Thank you for your comments. I'll take all those into consideration. :)
Have a great day.

Hello everyone!! I'm Lady Cali! I live in Los Angeles, California. I've been to Freeport Bahamas twice in 2015 but I want to go back to visit again maybe sometime this year. My friend who invited me over and toured me around has moved from Freeport. I'd like to meet new friends out there so when I come over, at least I know some people.


My name's Lauren, I'm a British undergraduate currently finishing my degree, and me and my boyfriend Liam are wanting to move to California when we've saved for a couple of years after I graduate. We're planning now as I've heard so far that it's a pretty lengthy procsss! This is all really new to us and didn't know who we needed to talk to so I thought a forum would be best, to hopefully hear from people who have actually done the move. ANY advice would be ace (about location, house buying, work, and the order of the whole process e.g. visas, house, work)! 😊

Thanks for the welcome
