Default Planning on moving from Australia to NY

Hi everyone
My name's Mario, I'm 22 years old and I'm looking at moving from Adelaide, Australia to NY (to live) early next year. I was born in Chile, however I have a dual citizenship, i.e. I'm also an Australian citizen with an Australian passport
This year I will be finishing my Bachelor of IT in university and I'm looking to move to NY to live with my girlfriend, who is a US citizen
I'm just wondering what my options are in terms of potential visas, which could assist me in making the move
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I was afraid of that, especially because I don't intend on getting married soon. Are those the easiest or only options?

The only other options are:-


- find a job where the prospective employer can sponsor you for a work visa. Isn't the E-3 visa dedicated to Australian citizens? Think it is similar to the H1-B visa.

- study in the US on a J-1 visa

I hope it's okay to bring this back, since I didn't think it was necessary to create a new thread for the same topic
I've now completed my degree and will be graduating in April. How can I gain more informaiton on employment sponsorship? Is it difficult to achieve? Thank you

they want experienced staff

To get sponsorship through an employer, you have to give the employer some way to justify hiring you over all the new grads in the US looking for their first job. It usually means you need some "special" or unique skill or experience.

Getting married would still be your best option, but that obviously doesn't guarantee you a job. Other possibilities might be graduate school (though you need to have the savings to support yourself and pay your tuition while you're in school, and you would need to be prepared to return back home at the end of your studies), a working holiday visa (which would at least give you a year or so in the States, though again you would have to return home at the end of the visa) or some other exchange program (also for a limited period of time).
Cheers,
Bev

why do you not start your research by learning about visa requirements? uscis.gov or travel.state.gov are very informative and official sources.

what is your degree and in what field?

Try an E3 which is not as well known but you need to be employed. I don't know how you will go however being just graduated You really do need to be specialized in a particular field.

You need to renew every 2 years.
Here is some great information. We live in Manhattan.

Not sure if they still do the J-1 Visa's for Australians? Maybe check it out online. It's for recent graduates, gives you 1 yr work/travel in the US. By the end of that you might be ready to commit to getting hitched or have an employer willing to sponsor you.

Other options are apply for the DV Lottery or get a job with a big company in Australia and then transfer to their US branch after a year or so.
