Well, I think 6 months would be a little too short, i think 1 year would be the minimum time that i would live there if i could.

Immigration policy in this country has gotten ridiculous. Positively paranoid. Many of us seem to have forgotten that we're not many generations away from being immigrants ourselves -- even, in the scheme of things, Mayflower descendents.

If you can find a sublet paying several months in advance, I don't see a problem.
Hmm, you bring up an interesting point (norways currency is called "norwegian kroner" (NOK)). Ill check with the US consulate here in oslo and ask them about this.

Remember, over a certain amount of cash (you can check on the ICE website) brought into the country must be reported.

That's very quaint. But most Manhattan women would rather die than get married and get dragged off to Brooklyn to pump out kids. Go for the college girls instead. You might be able to shack up for free.

BTW the U.S. is the most lax western nation in terms of immigration and visas.

considering the benefits you have in Norway with regards to child leave and childcare and all that you'd be a fool to raise a kid here.

what part of norge are you living in now?

I was thinking same about canada , even illiterates from India have set up business there so you should try for canada first and then when you get canadian green card then you can move freely anywhere in the US also , it is the greatest country in the world .

Is it true that getting a visa to london is easier than new york?

When some of the hijackers were boarding planes in bostion the staff knew something wasn't right , they had no luggage , were travelling first class with no return tickers but said nothing out of fear of any racial lawsuits so this tragedy happened...

What's are healthcare facilities like in Norway? I've read recently it's pretty cheap to get medical treatment over there for tourists.
