|Where do I start?|
|Your first step on the journey is to contact us and tell us about your plans and intentions.
PathWay USA works only with clients who have already decided they wish to move to the United States. We do not solicit those who are undecided about where they want to move to. This decision must have been made prior to engaging the services of PathWay USA. If you are undecided about what country you want to move to, we can help you to make an informed choice about this life-changing decision through our Power Point presentation or by attending one of our FREE seminars.
Once this decision has been made, then PathWay USA will provide assistance and guidance to make the relocation process less complicated and less stressful.
Contact Dianne Stewart for further information.
|What will I learn at a PathWay USA Phone Consultation?|
The first step is to complete our online IMMIGRATION QUESTIONNAIRE.
GET STARTED! Contact Us to request a Relocation Questionnaire.
COST : $165 to have your PathWay USA relocation questionnaire processed and evaluated - and then we will send you an email with our report and findings, views and opinions as to the merits of your case.
Should you then wish PathWay USA to follow up with a phone consultation to discuss your case and answer any questions you may have, this will cost $100 for a 30-45-minute call or $150 for a 60-90-minute call.
The 60-90 minute phone consultation to discuss all your options with you will include :
All payments made in US Dollars at the current exchange rate and only by Credit Card, PayPal or by deposit in SA.
|What are the Costs of using PathWay USA?|
|PathWay USA offers a wide range of consultancy services, all designed to make immigration as stress-free as possible.
The very FIRST STEP is the PathwayUSA Questionnaire where you tell us about yourself - your family, qualifications, job, experience, home and lifestyle. We evaluate your situation and advise whether you have any chance of meeting the visa-requirements to get into the USA and if so, the visa options open to you. There is a fee of $165 for the questionnaire evaluation.
Thereafter, we offer you assistance in multiple areas. These include getting a tourist visa to visit the USA, planning a Look-See-Decide trip to the USA to see whether the American Lifestyle is for you, looking at job, business and investment opportunities, opening bank accounts and getting a credit card, looking at schools, how to buy a car, get a mortgage, what possessions to bring and what to leave, referrals to an immigration attorney that won't fleece you and a Realtor who will show you homes and neighborhoods that suit your budget, family and lifestyle, how to get a social security number, drivers license, and a whole lot of other support that will prove invaluable. We include this list of services and associated fees with the Questionnaire Evaluation.

|What is the best City to live in?|
|This decision is subject to a myriad of factors :
PathWay USA can present various options of suitable cities, but there is a focus on Charlotte, NC as an ideal place for South Africans to relocate to. Charlotte is one of the fastest growing cities in the US and South Africans have been moving here since the early 1980's. It is currently estimated that there are about 4000 South Africans living in North and South Carolina. The region suits us - the weather is great, the people are hospitable and the lifestyle is similar to what we are used to. Other great states to move to in the region are South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Tennessee, Texas and Florida.

|What is the Cost of Living in the US?|
|Everything, other than services, is very inexpensive in the United States. Goods are cheap, but labor is expensive. You can buy a great GE microwave oven for $60 but it will cost you $75 for someone to come out and look at it if it breaks. Normally you would just take the item back to the store and they would immediately replace it, no questions asked.To give you a broad idea of what things cost in Charlotte, NC, here are some examples of items you may be purchasing :
NOTE : These prices are for the South Eastern United States and do not reflect other major metropolitan parts of the US - which are mostly far more expensive. Cities like San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago, Boston, New York etc are way more expensive than the prices quoted here.
