ROUTE TO MAUI: The Aloha.
From the book Affordable Paradise by H.Skip Thomsen.
“Chapter 1 – The Dream
There’s a magical, special feeling in these Islands of Hawai’i. Those of us who live here call it Aloha. It’s alive and well, and to some it’s so powerful and pervasive that it soon becomes an essential part of life. To many people, this feeling is a huge part of why we are here…but in any event it’s the mystique and power of the Islands that brings them to this extraordinary destination in the first place, and in the end it is what keeps them here forever.
To others, these feelings seem not to exist…
There are few places on Earth that cast this kind of spell on their guests. If you are one of the dreamers, take heart! If it is truly your desire, you can live that dream.“
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.
