Frequently asked questions

Can I work as an International Student in USA? What kind of jobs can I do?

If you are a student in the United States holding an F-1 visa, you know that your work options are limited and require a little bit of paperwork. Whether you're looking for a job, an internship, or even volunteering at a soup kitchen, to work legally in the country with student visa while studying you must receive an approval for CPT.

How much time does it take to get your EAD?

If you are a spouse of an H1-B or L1 visa holder, you need to apply for a work permit or an EAD to work in the USA. Most EADs are processed in 4-6 months but it may sometimes take longer. You might have many such questions related to your immigration status? What if my H1-B extension is denied? Where to find Immigration Lawyers near me, or how to prepare for your citizenship test? You can ask all these questions on homeis in the Immigration forum.

Where do I find good Desi food in USA?

South Asian love their food and rightly so. But a lot of Americans also love our cuisine and as a result it is not difficult to find a Desi restaurant in most American cities and towns. But to find the really good and authentic South Asian restaurants nearby, you have to look further: check in neighborhoods with a big South Asian community and ask for specific recommendations.

Where can you buy Desi groceries in US?

South Asian immigrants in the USA are often on the lookout for desi grocery stores close to where they live. Spices and vegetables are missed by the South Asian palate and finding a South Asian grocery store nearby is an important consideration while choosing one’s home or apartment. These days, almost every state in the U.S, has a South Asian (desi) grocery store where you can buy all kinds of dals, pickels, frozen food and fresh vegetables.

How to send money back home?

Most of us working in the USA send money back home. While doing a wire transfer from your bank is one way to do it, one of the easiest ways is to send money through various money transfer apps. Look for exchange rates offered by these apps, the time to process the transaction and choose the one that suits your needs the most.
