Chicago, Illinois in the United States is a wonderful place to migrate to. Chicago is the capital and largest city of Illinois, USA, with a census area population of 2,707,120 as reported by the 2011 U.S. Census Bureau. Chicago is the third most populous city in the United States, and the most populous city in the American Midwest that experiences a 0.5% population growth each year.
“Chicago depends on the vibrancy and economic stability that the immigrant community brings to the city” – Chicago, Illinois Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Chicago is the sister city to Toronto, Canada and boasts a rich architectural history. The “Chicagoland” area (also known as Metropolitan Chicago) is closely linked to the Canadian city through social, economic, and cultural ties.
This makes an ideal situation for people from abroad who want to immigrate to Chicago, USA. Chicago has a rich history of a city forged through the efforts of its immigration community. Thousands upon thousands of poor but hopeful travelers set out for America, in search of a better life. Railroads, canals, meatpacking plants — there was, and still is, opportunity in Chicago.
Chicago is home to 12 Fortune 500 companies and is a transportation and distribution center. Manufacturing, printing and publishing, and food processing also play major roles in the city’s economy. If you have a job offer for a specialty role, perhaps in one of Chicago’s leading industries, the H1-B visa might be right for you. An H-1B Visa is a U.S. work permit that allows foreigners to work “specialty occupations” for U.S. employers. A previous skilled workers program had hit its quota in the US just days into the application period, as reported by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, prompting a lottery and signaling that companies feel confident enough to hire more foreign workers. The H-1B program has not reached its cap and offers the best opportunity for those looking to start a life in Chicago, Illinois.

“Dear Mary and Amandine, We cannot begin to sufficiently express our tremendous gratitude to the two of you for all your excellent work that resulted in a successful work permit! We could not say thank you enough!!!!! Not only Ted, Paco and I, but everyone at the church and in the town who has supported the project is extremely excited and so eager for everything to begin. Definitely the success of the application will touch and improve the lives of well over 100 people. I mean this is a small, not-affluent town with basically no cultural or educational opportunities for people who can’t travel to larger centers, so this really is a great opportunity for everyone. I feel like you guys are almost magic! Thank you, thank, you thank you!!! If the ministry goes as well as we hope we will certainly look forward to working with you guys again when it comes time to apply to renew the LMO etc. Have a great weekend!!!”
“Hello Mary, you have been very good to me and have been more than empathetic of my situation, to the point of feeling my pain and agony. I guess I don’t have to describe to you how I felt about my life away from my children, you can clearly see from my life story. You have done what you could and I really thank you for your effort and time. Your words of encouragement and empathy mean so much. And I wish to thank you for giving me the chance to plan to see my kids any moment I have the financial means. I really couldn’t thank you enough. Thank you once again Niren & Associates!!”
“Good news! I was in the position to obtain a three year TN visa with your help! I would like to take this opportunity to thank you. You’ve provided me with help and support from the beginning of procedure to the end. I could not have completed it without your support. Many thanks for addressing all my last minute calls and all the counsel that you have given me on my application, that finally resulted in my success on the TN visa application by conquering all the hurdles. Your ideas regarding the resume, offer letter and advice on obtaining the company letter from all my previous employer letters have made a significant difference for my application. Many thanks again! And I really appreciated everything you and the chicago firm did for me and I am truly pleased and amazed with the services you and the firm has provided to me.”
"VisaPlace referred us to a great law firm and great lawyers. All I can say is "thank you" for getting my visa quickly. VisaPlace knew exactly what kind of legal team could help where other's couldn't. The fees were reasonable and everything went smoothly. Thank you for everything! I would highly recommend VisaPlace and the immigration attorneys they work with to anyone wishing to move to Canada or to the US."
