Australia - New Hampshire
« on: May 06, 2011, 02:11:38 pm »

Greetings fellow Freedom lovers.
I currently live in Melbourne Australia I am planing to visit NH to check it out before committing to immigration.
I have done some preliminary investigation into my options and here's what I have found so far.

Visiting

Visa Waiver Program.
http://canberra.usembassy.gov/visa_waiver_prog.html
This program allows Citizens of Australia and some other countries a 90 day tourist visit. No Visa required.
Fantastic as long as you have been a good boy/girl and have no criminal record.
I will be using this option for my reconnaissance mission this year.... Shweeet.

If you have a criminal record or want to work or study you need to go through the standard Visa application BS.

Diversity Lottery program.
If your not in a hurry and feeling lucky try this. 50,000 winners each year.
You sign up, wait, and cross your fingers.

Family/Relative.
My friends have suggested I find a girl, get her drunk and take her to Vegas.  Yeah right.


Work.
This is my preferred option.
Being confident in my qualifications and skills I hope find an employer that will be willing to sponsor me for a green card.

I will update as my plans progress.

If you are even thinking about moving to the US, I highly recommend signing up for the lottery ASAP.  It is by far the least time consuming and least expensive way to permanently move to the US that I know of.  Don't worry, it may be 10 years or so before you are selected and you can always decide not to move.

My enquiries lead me to this message.
http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_1322.html
"The entry registration period for DV-2012 is now closed. The online registration for DV-2012 began October 5, 2010 and ended November 3, 2010. "

I am assuming I will be able to apply for 2013 draw in October this year.

Diversity Lottery program.

Based on current numbers there is about a 2% chance of getting in via DV (2010 was 1.76% for Oceania).

Work.

Because of how quickly the H1's run out (2011 was gone in 3 days) you need to have something organized before April 1st in order for your employer to get in the H1 application so you have about a year to find something. As an indication for 2011 there were 2105 (out of 65000) H1's for EE related positions.
