ROUTE TO MAUI: VISAS?
If you plan to move to the US with your ohana you need a Visa which allow you and the members of your family to legally work there… First of all I need to gather information about US permanent residence or work Visas.
Ok, here it is a starting point: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis.
The Green Card Lottery (aka “Diversity Visa (DV) Lottery”) entry point: http://travel.state.gov/visa/immigrants/types/types_1322.html
If you have any good entrepreneurial idea then an eye must definitely be kept on the StartUp Visa Act, S. 3029 (by John Kerry (D-MA) & Richard Lugar (R-IN)) which aims to improve the current EB-5 Visa.
By the way if you are reading this post of mine and feel that the StartUp Visa Act is a good thing for the US, please give your endorsement or support to this proposal by Senators Kerry and Lugar.
