Visa Requirements – International move to the US

Shipping to the USA using a provider with a proven record such as John Mason International will ease your mind and mean that your transition to America goes a lot more smoothly.

International move to the US – Cities

The country is as large as it is diverse. The North Eastern corner, referred to as New England, is home to large population centres. Cities such as New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, and Boston offer strong markets, cultural diversity, and countless activities. Enjoy snow in the winter and cool down during the hot summers at the beach resorts. This distinctive area will be a fantastic place to reside within the US when considering your international move! Most especially if you are a fan of the city life, teeming with culture and vibrancy.

Looking for a warmer climate with a smaller population density? Consider any of the South Eastern states. Many states border the ocean and offer miles of pristine beaches and barrier islands. Although primarily rural, larger cities like Charlotte, Atlanta and Miami offer a full complement of cultural possibilities. The South Eastern states offer a quieter style of life, with potential to unwind and relax, making for an ideal place to move to within the US!

Another vast region to consider when moving to the USA is the Midwestern region. Nicknamed America’s “Heartland,” the terrain is flat, vast, and expansive and provides domestic and international foodstuffs. Agriculture, predominately corn and wheat, is the major industry. The Midwest is also home to America’s domestic oil production, primarily located in Texas.

America’s west coast also offers many favourable attributes for the emigrant. Large cities such as Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles offer employment and a wide array of cultural actives. Citrus groves and vineyards dot the California landscape in contrast to “Silicon Valley,” which is the country’s technology hub. The state of California alone accounts for 10% of the country’s GDP. Consider your next international move to the US, to California if you’re looking for a commercial buzz.

Regardless of where you decide to locate, you’re sure to be close to one of America’s National or State Parks. Construction and preservation for many of these parks began during the Great Depression of the 1930s. America’s parks receive millions of domestic and international visitors annually. A holiday spent at beautiful Yellowstone for example will provide a lifetime of memories.

Education in the US

America also offers many of the finest universities in the world. From the renowned “Ivy League” schools, including Harvard and Yale, to the many state-run institutions including MIT and UCLA, American universities produce many of the world’s leaders in medicine, science, and engineering.

Employment in the US

The US equally offers many benefits for someone considering relocating from the UK. Whether you are seeking a change a climate, new scenery, or employment or educational opportunities, you’ll find it in the USA.
