Looks like I was lucky with my US visa – not only did I get my appointment and visa in only a few weeks, having applied in February (and not the average 270 weeks that has been quoted!), but the fee for a visa is to go up in May, from $160 to $185. Collected the passport with the new visa in today and, if I was still doing immigration work then the photo on the visa would be enough to have me banned from entry (why are passport and visa photos so awful?).
A new survey says that men here say they want to earn at least $1,058 a month, while women’s say that they require $1,019 on average. It also says that technology and systems positions are those with the highest salary expectation, with mechanical engineering having the average salary required by applicants being $1,146.
