Are You Thinking Of Migrating to Buffalo, New York, USA?

buffalo immigration lawyerBuffalo is the second most populous city in the state of New York, after New York City. According to the 2010 Census, Buffalo has a population of 261,310 and the larger Buffalo–Niagara–Cattaraugus has 1,215,826 residents. Buffalo originated around 1789 as a trading community on Buffalo Creek, and began to grow quickly in 1825 after the opening of the Erie Canal. By the 20th century, Buffalo became a major shipping hub and grew to be the 8th largest city in the United States.

From our many cultural institutions and our wonderfully diverse neighborhoods, thriving commercial districts and peerless urban architecture and artistic communities that continue to inspire and excite, Buffalo is a city with a renewed feeling of hope and optimism.  – Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown

Buffalo is an Ideal Destination for Immigrants

In recent years, the region’s largest economic sectors, health care and education, continue to grow despite the lagging national and worldwide economies. This growth has been helped by major expansions to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and Buffalo’s State University of New York. This makes Buffalo and ideal place for international students or medical professionals, the latter of whom can apply through the H-1B visa.

Buffalo’s economy remains strong throughout the economic recession because of revenue from Canadian shoppers who cross the border to go shopping. In 2010, Forbes rated Buffalo the 10th best place to raise a family in America, in part because it’s low unemployment rate.

USA Visa Procedures Have Been Made Easier for Canadians

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, TN Visa applications for Canadian businesses and professionals are now being accepted through a streamlined process.

“Hi Mary, I hope all is well with you. Thank you so much for touching base with me the other day. Not only did you make me feel relaxed, but also you showed me your understanding and care about my case, which means tremendously to me especially on that day when my body was suffering from unbearable pain due to the weather change. I have been grateful to your help so I can’t help but writing this email to say thank you again. Because of my language barrier, plus my injury from the car crash accident, I have experienced so much hardships physically and mentally. But I am so fortunate at the same time too that I received so much kind help from people including from you and your office. I will not hesitate to recommend you and your firm to anyone who needs immigration help. I also believe that you will be a success professional in your career. All the best!”

“I crossed the border today and was granted my work visa with no problems whatsoever. Thank you so much for all of your help! “

Julian S.
“When I was first offered an employment opportunity within the USA, I had a lot of initial questions/concerns while going through endless immigration websites trying to find the answers- I continually found myself back at the same place, Niren & Associates. Further to researching their reputation and the fact they are conveniently located right at a subway stop I proposed to my employer that they go with Niren and Associates for my transfer. I have not regretted it for a minute. After working w/ them I would recommend Niren & Associates to anyone who has challenges w/ immigration. Their attention to detail was great, and always helping out with the trivial questions that I had. The consultation prior to obtaining my L1B visa was the highlight for me. They had no problems explaining the process and the expectations to me repeatedly in order to insure I understood it completely. Thank you again. “

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.
