      Looking to move to the US

      Hey guys,

      Just wanted to get a few opinions etc. I am 25 years old and currently working for just a small company. I have a love interest in America and have been looking into this for the past 4 years and cannot find a single article that explains the processes in simple English. We cannot get married as it is a gay relationship, and obviously as my occupation doesn't come under an invaluable skill, I'm left with not very much to go on! Is there any other ways you can get a residency visa for the US?! HELP!

      Hi Laura,

      Despite calling themselves 'the land of the free' the US is far from it! I am afraid your best option would be to look into your partner moving to where you are, your only option would have been a work visa but you have already ruled that out. :(

      Sadly immigration hasn't changed though, so still no same sex visas.
