I want to move to Miami, Florida but I am from Europe. I would like to know what should I do to live there. And of course if you advice me to do that.

here's the best way to do it:

1) look for a job first
2) find a place to live close to your job
3) buy a plane ticket to Miami and get to work!

You say it like it is so easy...
I have to get a visa first because I don`t want to be a alien worker. And I understand that all the visas are finished. I will try to find a job. Does anybody knows if at the work shop of stained glass overlay is a a best place to find a job? Or if anyone knows anybody who can find me a job? On the internet I found only jobs for americans. They don`t accept if you are not from there. I understand them. But I need a chance.

you need a compelling reason to move here.......like you should have for anywhere....

do you have a job waiting here?
do you have family/friends here?
did you hear God tell you to move here?


what's your motiviation? If I want to go to move to England and get a job, it's probably not going to happen. The best I could do is get a 6 month non-working visa.

I don't know anything about the stained glass industry. I bought my old girlfriend some classes to take for making stained glass down near Dadeland, but I don't think she ever used them. Hey, can I get my money back!!!!

Since 9\11 it is hard for countries or certain countries to obtain visas to come to this country.
The exchange rate is advantageous right now considering how cheap the dollar is and the Feds are looking to lower the interest rates. However, it all becomes relevant once you live here because you will need a good paying job that is commensurate to what it takes to make mortgage payments,insurance and property taxes unless you rent an apartment or a room and that is very expensive to say the least.
You can flip through the Miami Forum or go to Skyscrapercity.com to find what residential areas to live and not live in around Miami-Dade .

The easiest way to go is to get a job at a company in your country (or in the EC) as an expatriate worker. There are a lot of Europeans working at European companies in the Miami area (I know this to be true; I work with some of them). The problem is that it's hard to get a job anywhere these days, and companies are more hesitant to pay the cost of home-grown staff overseas. Right now is not the easiest time to get a job overseas.

One very large Euorpean company is relocating their Miami office from Blue Lagoon Office Park to Jamaica.

On the other hand, you won't know unless you try. At the least, you'll learn a lot about the subject.
