Maybe just try it? Ignoring all the data points that say NO is nice for travel, not so nice for working there
B1 not an option to work. Embassies have a huge backlog. I got my visa appointment late in may. I was waiting since December 2021
Is it really true that all the VCs are there or have they all moved to Austin?
I used to live in SF 10 years ago and just visited again last week. Itโ€™s 60% of how nice it used to be. Lots of businesses closed down and the city didnโ€™t give me a happy vibe. I spent Saturday morning in the Mission and had several uncomfortable encounters. I wouldnโ€™t recommend moving to SF right now.
Also can consider moving to East Ukraine rn in similar vein
gnzmzjsinwnj if that's true then it's too bad the price hasn't gone down by the same %!
First 4hrs in San Fran (Mission area) today and saw a guy stand up tall right in broad daylight jacking up heroin in front of Bank of America.

10 minutes later I walk past a car of three, stopped at the lights (they were green) smoking crack pipes in their car.

I kinda feels apocalyptic to me to be honest. Like a city that is on its death bed.

Anyone kicking around in San Francisco? I am in the city for the week then Menlo Park for 3 weeks.

Let me know if you are keen for coffee/beer/NBA Finals. Cheers.
Probably the worst time to move to SF. Covid decimated businesses/livelihoods there but itโ€™s more expensive than ever.
Rather be in NYC for that price. More to do.
Doing the same but later in the summer! Would love to hear what route you are taking / stops you are making and recommendations!
In Austin, TX, has anyone managed to get a PCR test with results within 48 hours for travel?
The Listings Project is great for NYC and i think they're expanding. Craigslist is still good too but only if you're willing to wade through a bunch of crap. There are some new upstarts like Sonder and June as well but I've never used it.
The Bay Area is massive, though. Like I can hang out in the Outer Sunset SF, or San Rafael, or North Berkeley - you're not going to see crazy stuff. The weather is lovely, food is fantastic, people are friendly. It depends what you are looking for. There's so much going on at night. But thefts are way up, so if you want to work in a cafe and not worry about laptop getting snatched, it's not a good area

I live in SF now. Short answer is, itโ€™s prob not worth the cost. If, however, you have the luxury of easily trying out new cities, then thereโ€™s only one way to find out ๐Ÿ™‚
My biggest qualm is itโ€™s strangely expensive, partly inflation, partly cost of living didnโ€™t dip much with the pandemic? From what I gather, the strongest draw to SF is the people, if you find the people you want to associate with. Other pros mild weather, wine country, hike/bike/run, etc, and I second bookophile it depends on what you like. News/social media spotlight the crime, which is somewhat rampant, but I canโ€™t imagine this being worse than other major cities. It also feels much emptier than years ago.
down to meet in the city! DM where you are and weโ€™ll coordinate ๐Ÿ™‚
O1 visa is time-consuming but definitely doable. Gives a lot of flexibility.

Anyone has applied for the US tourist visa outside its resident country?
yes is online so you can do it from anywhere -- ESTA right zjcrwtugj
I think he means a full visa where you have to go to the embassy. ESTA isn't technically a visa, it's a system for visa free travel
yup, thatโ€™s right, I know the process (at least for brazilians) involves filling some forms, going to the embassy for an interview and waiting some days. just canโ€™t find if I can apply for this process in a country iโ€™m not resident of ๐Ÿ™ƒ
I used to work in immigration but don't have experience with tourist visas. But with other visas we always saw people apply outside their home country without issues. They may ask why you can't return and apply from home but you'd be fine just blaming it on cost and COVID requirements
Perhaps this site can answer your question. It really helped my wife and I with her visa process:

Hey folks, I'm planning to visit a friend in Philadelphia, and I'm honestly not getting a great impression of the city before visiting.

What areas, neighborhoods, or lodging would you recommend a digital nomad to stay in Philly?

Or perhaps you know of some places within an hour's drive from Philly that are a better option to stay?

I'm not interested in going out on the town or seeing the sites if it's that dangerous. I'd rather just stay in some sort of oasis outside of all that.
I never heard of Philly being dangerous. I spent a few weeks a few years ago, and no problems, not my favorite city but good to visit.
I stayed in ~Society Hill~ Queen Village area
I live here and I'm curious what isn't giving you a good impression. I live in Old City and yes it's a city with inherent city issues, but no more than NYC, SFO, CHI, etc.
I haven't been in years but honestly aside from panhandling and rampant homelessness it isn't any more dangerous than any other city in the U.S.
+1, I live here now (albeit, in NoLibs which is a pretty young and gentrified area), but Philly is like any other place. Stick to the right neighborhoods during the right times and it wonโ€™t be an issue.

Crime is up in the city overall (as with elsewhere in the US post-covid(ish)), but itโ€™s not like people are running around with knives. The tourists and local community are as vibrant and active as ever.

Some highlighted neighborhoods for new visitors include Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Queen Village, Passyunk, Rittenhouse, and Washington Square.
I mean Kensington needs some work... for sure... but that's true with any city neighborhood. If you're uncomfortable, just avoid that neighborhood. It's a good bit outside of center city, so not something you'll stumble upon accidentally if you're staying near the "sites" and center of the city
ymljbgreiazgfg if itโ€™s good enough for your friend youโ€™ll be fine :)
