New York, New York in the United States is a wonderful place to migrate to. New York City is the capital and largest city of New York, USA, with a census area population of 8,244,910 as reported by the 2011 U.S. Census Bureau. The geography of New York City is characterized by its coastal position at the meeting of the Hudson River and the Atlantic Ocean in a naturally sheltered harbor.
“New York is the most immigrant-friendly city in the world.” – New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg
New York is the most populous city in the United States and the center of the New York Metropolitan Area, one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world.
Traditionally, New York has long been a working-class city. This makes an ideal situation for people from abroad who want to immigrate to NYC. Today, there are far fewer manufacturing workers than a generation or two ago, but many more service worker opportunities.
The financial, insurance, health care, and real estate industries form the basis of New York’s economy. The city is also the most important center for mass media, journalism and publishing in the United States, and is the preeminent arts center in the country. Creative industries such as new media, advertising, fashion, design and architecture account for a growing share of employment, with New York City possessing a strong competitive advantage in these industries.
If you have a job offer for a specialty occupation, perhaps in one of New York’s top industries, the H1-B visa could 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 New York City.

“Hello Shabnam, Many thanks for your efforts in helping get Linda into the country. We had a fantastic reunion this weekend, and we are elated to be together again. We are now hopeful that things can stay this way. The customs officials gave her a bit of a hard time, and in the end seemed more concerned about her being a flight risk than they were about the DUI. But they let her in nonetheless. Your team has been absolutely wonderful with everything. I cant thank you girls enough!!!”
“Hi Irene, Everything went pretty well. I got my E-1 visa last week and went to NYC immediately. Thank you so much. The visa is for two years. Best regards! “
“Hi Fadi, I received my TN1 status! The process was very seamless. The waiting time was about an hour. Once I was called up by the customs officer, they took a look at my documentation package and asked me to have a seat. I was called up again in about 10 minutes where I was told that I had received my TN1. There were absolutely no questions at all from their end, which I was very pleased about.I firmly believe that the documentation you put together was the key in me receiving my TN1 today with absolutely issues. Thank you very much for all of your help and prep!! All the best to you!”
