Are you sure that you will be able to organize and live a much better life than your motherland? BUT WHAT TO DO IT FOR IT? Of course, every person has a different situation, and different ways of solving this problem, but there are a lot of common issues.
Learn English properly. This is absolutely necessary if you want to be a full-fledged resident of the United States, resolve all your questions there, receive documents, open bank accounts, triple for work, etc. To hope that you will come to the USA and learn in the environment, learn the language, it is not worth it, because in the USA you will no longer be up to it, there you will have to solve absolutely other problems and solve quickly. If you do not know the language, you will be forced to communicate constantly with Russian-speaking consultants in the US, contact them on any small matter, and eventually it will be hard, and often not very competent, and expensive. If you are the kind of person who decides to change your life abruptly and move to another country, then you will certainly learn English at some level. Moreover, now the opportunities for studying it have greatly expanded, there are many courses, there are good audio and video courses, in the end it is possible to watch English and American TV channels on cable, there are films for sale in English. Believe me, learning a language in advance is very, very useful in America. Health. Do not regret money and time, complete a survey. First, an immigrant visa in the United States or status can not be obtained if you have serious illnesses, such as tuberculosis or hepatitis, if there are such diseases, it is better not to start the process of preparing immigration, but in any case, you must definitely cure your teeth to the end. In the US, it will be much more expensive, and it will not be until America suddenly gets a tooth that you have not cured in Ukraine or Russia, you will have completely different problems at that time, you will adapt in a new country, in a new language environment, at a new place of work, in a new dwelling.
Choose one of the ways of immigration to the United States. Some opportunities allow changing the status, already being on the territory of the United States, for example, you can enter the tourist visa and change the status to the worker in the USA. But officially, this intention, when you get a tourist visa in the US, should not be. This is known as the prohibition of double intent.
