Welcome!

Welcome to the American Dreaming blog – a place to discuss personal finance for non-citizens living and/or working in the US.

On this site, it’s my goal to explore personal finance from the point of view of non-citizens – especially those holding F (student) or H (skilled worker) visas. The laws governing our stay in the US mean that the conventional wisdom may not apply. For example:

How can you increase income to accelerate debt payments, when you can’t legally hold an additional job?

Is it okay to invest when you hold a work visa? What about a student visa?

How should a work visa holder plan for retirement?

I’ll also be discussing more general personal finance topics, and plan to participate in the personal finance blogging community.

A couple of notes:This blog is not intended to criticize US immigration policy. We are very grateful for the opportunity to come to the US to work, study, live and travel. My intention is simply to help non-citizens navigate the quirks and complications of the laws governing our stay here, and help us plan for the future.

I am not a lawyer, and nothing in this blog is intended as legal advice. I will provide sources for my information whenever possible, but it is your responsibility to ensure the information you have is correct. If in doubt, please consult a lawyer or other expert.
