For a visit or to stay? If you want to come to stay, are you legitimately/legally immigrating or otherwise getting permission to do so from the federal government?


I can't see that any city would not welcome a visitor. On the other hand, if you want to work, you should consider where work might be available in whatever area you are qualified to work before you just ask a general question about cities that 'welcome foreigners'. I doubt any city will put on a parade for anyone however ... domestic or foreign .. unless they win some world title or are a big wig politician of some kind.


More specifics, please.

There are many and in general major college towns are often an excellent example (i.e. Chapel Hill NC, Iowa City IA, Bloomington IN, Lawrence KS)

I have lived in the US in the past and while i was there i did a lot of traveling. My findings were that smaller cities were almost racist towards foreigners. Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee and some other states were "rough" on me and my friends solve for cities like Atlanta, New Orleans and a few other. That's been a couple of years ago, just wondering how is it nowadays.

Houston, Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, Denver just to name a few. Most cities these days welcome diversity.

Louisville KY has a refugee population that probably exceeds 10,000. Just from 2011 to 2015 6,400 refugees were resettled. It's now commonplace to see immigrants from Latin America, Sub Saharan Africa, and the Middle East every time I go to a major shopping area. It's had a major impact on the restaurant scene.

I think the OP was looking for smaller cities. But as for large cities, Houston is gaining a reputation as the most welcoming in the nation (it's population is the most diverse in the nation and its refugee population is huge). The other large cities in Texas are also very welcoming to foreigners from all over the world. Ironically, while the citizens in the large cities in Texas are overall very welcoming, the political leaders at the state level in Texas are very closed minded on this topic (they're very open on the local level). The state level politicians will have to change or will be replaced due to the rapidly evolving demographics in the state.
