Are You Thinking Of Migrating to Kansas City, USA?


Kansas City, often referred to by its initials, K.C., is the largest city in the U.S. state of Missouri and is the predominant city of a metropolitan area of more than two million people spanning the Missouri–Kansas border. It encompasses 316 square miles (820 km2) in parts of Jackson, Clay, Cass, and Platte counties. It is one of two county seats of Jackson County, the other being Independence, which is to the city’s east.

As of the 2010 Census, the metropolitan area had a population of 2,343,008. It is the second largest metropolitan area in Missouri after Greater St. Louis and is the largest with territory in Kansas, ahead of Wichita. The area includes a number of suburbs including the following which have a population exceeding 100,000: Independence, Missouri; Kansas City, Kansas; Olathe, Kansas; and Overland Park, Kansas. The following suburbs have a population exceeding 50,000: Blue Springs, Missouri; Lee’s Summit, Missouri; and Shawnee, Kansas.

There Are Fantastic Opportunities in Missouri For Specialty Occupations

Kansas City offers numerous opportunities for tech professionals in a variety of industries, including financial services, legal firms and health care. Kansas City-based tech professionals average about $75,000 a year, up 13 percent in 2012. At Missouri’s universities, the number of computer science graduates declined from 2,500 in 2005 to about 1,500 in 2009.  As a result, there’s bound to be myriad opportunities for tech talent and frustration for companies trying to recruit. However, this is especially promising for international migrants looking for specialty positions in the tech industry. The above may have much success migrating to Kansas City via work visas.

Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the doors have been opened for Canadians and businesses seeking to enter the US markets. As a result, US Work Visa applications for Canadian businesses and professionals are now being accepted through a streamlined process.

They advised me on exactly what I needed, they gave me a synopsis of the process and they were adamant on what information I had to supply before they would submit my application. I could have never had done it on my own. The whole process from start to finish was worth it. I know where I will go to if needing immigration lawyers in the future, Niren & Associates.
