South Africa To Australia To Us - Has Anyone Done This Recently?

Recommended Posts

Hi all. We immigrated to Australia 7 years ago but our first choice was always the US and we're thinking about just making the move now.

 

Has anyone done this recently?

 

What was your experience with regard to the visa process?

 

Did you go the H1B or E-3 route?

 

Are the requirements as stringent as they were when we initially immigrated to Aus?

 

Apologies for all the questions - this is literally my first stop in starting the process so I'm completely green. :)

 

I look forward to hearing everyone's experiences!

I moved from SA to Australia in 2006 and then from Australia to the USA in 2012. I found the immigration process to the USA to be more complex to navigate than that of Australia, so I went for the easy option - the Diversity visa. Now that I have citizenship in both I have come full-circle and find myself back in South Africa.

 

If you're going the H1B route, then good luck as it seems a very tricky and long process. I suggest you take a look at the USCIS website for visa options and guidance. Good luck.

Thanks for the info..

I am sure it has changed but this is in the back of my mind as I work remotely and enjoy working around the world.
