Record breaking number of Green Cards distributed

Recent statistics that have been revealed on US immigration show that nearly 35,000 Migrants of Indian origin who were in employment in the US under a H-1B visa obtained permanent resident visas, more widely known as Green Cards in the last 12 months. This is a record breaking amount and over six times higher than the statistics of last year, 2012. 

There is a cap in place in the US for the amount of H-1B visas that are distributed annually and this is currently at 65,000. The H-1B is the equivalent to other countries Skilled Migrant Visas and is basically the same thing, you need a recognised skill with relevant qualifications and your skills need to be required in the country as a rule, background checks are performed and there are fees and waiting times which are non waivable. 

The skills which are needed will vary from country to country and state to state. For example in Australia there’s always a shortage of Minors so those prospective migrants who have the skills and experience in this sector will almost definitely be granted entry. In the US there is no widespread shortage of any positions, however the sector in which most migrants who obtain a H-1B visa go to work in is IT. IT positions, especially in states with a heavy IT industry such as New York come up regularly and if you have the prefered skills and experience you will not be out of work for long here, it is the land where dreams are said to turn to gold and where profiting from hard work is something which is obtainable for anybody. 

As a migrant before being granted permanent residency, or being handed your Green Card, you will be seen as a Temporary Worker and so your options for accommodation will be temporary leases, usually in apartment blocks which are all modern and spacious places. This comes as a surprise to migrants who arrive from built up locations such as Pakistan and India who expect the huge sky scraping apartment blocks to hold tiny apartments and masses of people. This is not the case. Due to much of the architecture originally being from Victorian times the living spaces are large due to the modernisation at the turning of the century where two apartments would be turned into one and people would be renting or buying a suite or self contained house so to speak as opposed to one room.
