=====Hello everyone out there!=====

We're a family of six with itchy feet. Considering moving from Ireland to Boston next year.

Looking for tips ; )

Thankyou in advance!

Hi Tootsie, welcome to TP.

This should be posted in the North America forum, but the moderator for this forum should hopefully move it soon. :)

Well, the first thing you need to know is that you need to have a US relative that will promise to support you-or else you need to have a permanent work visa--or else you have to be one of the first 45,000 or so that apply in order to make this move nowadays.

Other than that, not much to it;--Boston probably has more Irish immigrants per capita than any other major city in the US, so you'll fit right in.

P.S. My great-grandfather was a 11-year old stowaway and came from Galway, Ireland to New York City on a boat called the "Cushlamacree" way back during the Irish potato famine of 1847-1849, so I personally have a great affinity for my fellow Irish friends.
