Hi, I am considering a move and, while looking through a lot of information, I can't seem to find advice on how to find somewhere to live initially. When applying for a visa, do you need somewhere to have somewhere to live/stay or is your current address all that is needed? And when you arrive in the USA, do you need to have a permantent address or is a temporary address enough to get you started? (be it a hotel, with family/friends etc)

Hi Selket,

What type of visa do you wish to apply for? 

While in many cases you won't need a permanent address, if you plan on moving to the USA in the long-term, I would advise you to apply for the visa from your home country rather than arrive in the USA and then try to make the application.

You should consult the US Dept of State website for more detailed information on all types of visas. You can also use the Visas in the USA page for an overview.

Good luck
