My employer is in New York and I wanted to visit my friend in San Francisco before I head to NY. I would like to spend 2 weeks at my friend's place and then go. Will it be okay at the port of entry?? Did anybody have any issues with this kind of scenario?
I am on h1b and I just stayed US for four months then I came back to India. Now it was almost 8 months passed and I want to go back US without the knowledge of my sponsoring company. What precaution I should take to clear immigration as one other company is ready to transfer my hib as soon as I reach there.
Thanks in advance
Strongly recommended to book Taxi (Cab) with "TAXI" symbol and Taxi number on it
Dear new comers,
I had bad experience on my first trip to USA. I was travelling from JFK airport to Washington DC. I need to catch a taxi from JFK to 303 West street, New York city, NY. I was afraid to take unknown cab. So I trusted on Indian taxi driver. (There was announcement by airport people that only take Taxi infront of airport). I trusted on Indian CAB and he charged me $200 and it was expected to have $50- $100. When I asked, "how much it could be before I go in his taxi?" He told it will be $50. At the end of trip, he asked $265. He told that I told you it would be around 250 not 50. I bargained with him and he cahrged $200.
So only catch yellow taxi and Taxi No and "Taxi" symbol written on it unless you book in advance a taxi for long trip. Even dont book taxi from airport person (AIR india or other airlines). Persons over there get commission and book taxi for you with higher rate...
In short, please book only taxi with "TAXI" symbol and with Taxi number on it to save money.
what happen if immigration officer forgot to stamp on your passport? I mean to ask when you come from some other countries to USA and if they forget to stamp about Arrival date. In this case what we need to do? Is there any problem when you return to your native country?
do they stamp on you passport when you are going back? Because I have seen usally when we come from somewhere else to USA then tehy have to put stamp on your passport. I have seen first case when they forgot to put Arrival Stamp on Passport. I know they have all records when we came and when we are going back but I think this is for our reference that we need to know and we have to keep all the records for us.
so please if anyone know about it then please let me know. In this situation what we need to do?

Credit card plays Vital role in USA. If you don't have credit card;
Its advisable to take Secure Card (Credit Card) with Bank of America. It allows the limit to use this card on the basis of your deposit on your card. As you use this card, It builds your credit history and also will help you to get the regular credit card.
If you have IDP(International Driving Permit) along with Indian National licence, U might get the US licence with out road test in NJ.
In NJ, Most of the cases you will get the US Driving Licence upon just passing the written test with out going to RoadTest. But make sure to show IDP with national licence at the counter b4 going to knowledge test. It doesn't mean everybody will get it, But most of the cases in NJ possibly get it.
