Are You Interested in Moving to San Jose, California, USA?

san-jose-immigration-attorneySan José is the third-largest city in California, the tenth-largest in the United States, and the county seat of Santa Clara County. San José is the largest city within Silicon Valley, which is a major component of the greater San Francisco Bay Area. It is the largest city in Northern California; The U.S. Census Bureau reported the population of the city to be 945,942 in 2010.

The San Jose metro area, which includes Santa Clara and Silicon Valley, saw a net increase of about 30,400 immigrants since the 2010 Census, according to estimates.

There Are Many Reasons Why San Jose is Great for Immigration

The Bay Area created more jobs in the month of May 2013 than during the entire first four months of the year, pushing down unemployment rates in the region and statewide to their lowest levels in nearly five years. A growing number of jobs is usually great news to immigrants looking to move to the area, as many entry visas are received through proof of employment.

You May be Able to Enter with a Work Visa

US Work Visas are a typical mean of entry to life in the United States. Every fiscal year, approximately 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas are made available to qualified applicants under the provisions of U.S. immigration law. As work visas usually require applicants to show proof of employment in the destination, it is a good idea to immigrate to areas where job growth is not stagnating. California and San Jose are showing an increasing job growth rate which make the area an ideal destination for immigrants.

Some More Information On San Jose

San Jose, like most of the Bay Area, has a subtropical Mediterranean climate. San Jose has 300+ days of sunshine and an annual mean temperature of 60.5 °F (15.8 °C). It lies inland, surrounded on three sides by mountains, and does not front the Pacific Ocean like San Francisco. Because of this, the city is somewhat more sheltered from rain, giving it a semiarid feel with a mean annual rainfall of 15.82 in (402 mm), compared to some other parts of the Bay Area, which can receive about three times that amount.

San Jose possesses about 15,950 acres of parkland in its city limits, including a part of the expansive Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The city’s oldest park is Alum Rock Park, established in 1872. In its 2013 ParkScore ranking, The Trust for Public Land, a national land conservation organization, reported that San Jose was tied with Albuquerque and Omaha for having the 11th best park system among the 50 most populous U.S. cities.

Customer Reviews

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

Tim Willisin the last week

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

George Jakan'gayoa week ago

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
