Let’s Begin 🙂

1. Get the printout / soft copy of I94 and keep it with you

As soon as you arrive in the USA, the first thing you should do is to get a copy of your i94 document from the Official Website of the Department of Homeland Security. It is a document that you will be required to show at most places and act as a proof of your legal stay in the USA. Hence, take a print out and keep it with you always until you get a local State Id or Driving License from the state.

Always store the soft copy of your I94 document on your phone locally without the need of Internet. In case required anywhere, you should always pull it in your phone and present it to the officer asking for it. Being an immigrant in this country, it is a very important document and shall always be kept somewhere readily accessible.

2. Get the printout / soft copy of Verification of Employment Letter (VOE)

In order to apply any government approved documents, you will always need to show your employment verification letter also called VoE letter. You should ask your HR department to provide you a VOE letter unless you already do not have it from them.

3. Get yourself a Mobile Connection

You need to get a mobile connection to make calls and be connected. A lot of plans are offered by AT&T, Lyca Mobile, Verizon, and T-Mobile to suit various needs.

4. Open a Bank Account

Once you have the I94 and VOE letter, you should walk into any bank over the Saturday and get  your salary account open in it. Bank does not require SSN as mandatory document and will just need your I94 copy, VOE letter copy, I797 document and the Passport with a Valid VISA to open the account.

9. Admit your Kid to the School

If you have school going kids, then the most important thing that you should keep in mind for finding the home for yourself is the school district ratings and local school ratings around that house. In the United States, both school districts and school have national ratings. The better the school district, the higher the apartment rental rates will be. So, choose a house in a better school district with a good local school rating. You can check the school ratings at Niche.com and other similar websites.
