    We all know hoe hard it can be for a Brit to move and live in the USA, and being just 20 years old without millions in the bank, my dreams of emigrating to Florida seem too far out of reach.

    However...

    I was speaking to a couple of Brits who moved to Florida a few years ago, and they said that they were able to move there when they bought a business there, as long as they employed 2 US citizens, full time.

    I am hoping to get a massive portfolio of sites in the near future, and hopefully they will bring in enough for me to live on, so if it's possible, would I be able to register as a proper business in the USA, and employ a couple of citizens, to use for outsourcing??

    Is this a feasible plan?

    What are other ways I can get to the states, using IM?

    Thank You!!

    P.S. I just saw an emoticon which describes perfectly why I want to move away from my hometown .. :weather05

    A business is a business. It's irrelevant if it's IM or a dog walking service. The bottom line is If you can bring in X amount of money to invest into the US, then your chances of getting a accepted are VISA are higher.

    But, let's be realistic. We're talking hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of provable income if you were to go that route.

    If you're determined, there's easier ways of getting residency in the USA: education for one. A job offer. If there's a will there's a way...

    Why would anyone want to move to the US.

    LoL.

    Do you have family there or something?

    Just move to east Europe or Thailand or something.

    You need to check the current ICE reg's for what is required. Like what was said, pretty much a business is a business, BUT there are limitations. A few years ago when I was practicing, I think you had to invest a minimum of $400,000 USD and so on.
    And you can expect ICE to want to look deep into your internal cavities to verify your business/income/net worth and so on.
    It ain't cheap, but it is fast if you got the money.
    Problem with student or working visa is they are not a sure fire way to permanent residence status.

    Have you visited Florida then? If not I suggest booking a vacation first to "test it out". Remember, it's not like TV, the grass isn't always greener yadda yadda etc...

    There's an EB-5 program as well if you have $500k to invest in one of US's regional centers.

    Or you could invest that in a business that employs 5 US citizens instead. (also under EB5)

    easiest way to do it hands down, is to marry an american girl. Of course you have to find a girl to marry, but it is 100 times simplier doing it that way than the others.

    They cracked down on it heavily in the past several years, marriage to a u.s. citizen doesn't even guarantee a greencard anymore,and they will probe so much into your personal life.

    Welcome to the USA.

    The opportunities are here if you take advantage of them.

    Most American ladies love that British accent. I know I do. We think all of you sound like Hugh Grant.

    Florida is pretty nice 7 months out of the year, then all of the Floridians come to where I live for the summer and fall...the beautiful mountains of NC. We call them "snow birds".

    bro you should try to go on vacation and live there for at least few weeks to see if the place really suits you or not. Judging Florida (or China) based on what people tell you doesn't seem wise enough if you really want to live there in the future.

    I'm from the u.s. - and can't understand why you would want to move here. Have you looked at the political climate here? In the u.s. you can be arrested, removed from the country, and held indefinately without charges, a trial, or legal representation. You can also be killed under those same circumstances.

    My description is drastic of course, but it is also legally accurate.

    If I were you, I would be looking for someplace that still has a free people, and the u.s. really isn't that place.

    And before any red blooded americans start nailing me for not being american enough, just keep in mind, i didnt make that shit up, it is laws that have been passed over the past few months.

    If you plan to make a career in IM, you should not move to USA, way too many regulations and laws controlled by groups that hate the freedom internet gives to normal people, backed by a very obedient police system to enforce their practices.

    If you make money, you can live like a king virtually anywhere, and you can visit us whenever you want anyway. Instead of spending 400-500k$ to obtain a US residency, use that money to grow your business to the next level and you are set.
