Discover North Carolina

If you have been to North Carolina on a visa waiver and on return to your home town realized that you could make NC your new home, this section will interest you. If coming here as a student on an F1 visa, we will introduce you to some of the colleges. If you are contemplating an E2 Investment visa, we will introduce you to some great resources. If you are planning on getting married to your US finacee and eventually coming out here on either a K1 or K3 visa, we will tell you a little bit about the history and lifestyle. Whichever way you get here you will need help from a qualified Immigration Attorney, especially when it’s not just you that wants to emigrate to the US but your entire family. Join us and let us welcome you to North Carolina. Located on the Atlantic Seaboard in the southeastern United States. The state borders South Carolina and Georgia to the south, Tennessee to the west and Virginia to the north. North Carolina contains 100 counties and its capital is Raleigh.

North Carolina was one of the original Thirteen Colonies, originally known as Carolina. Joara, a native village near present-day Morganton, was the site in 1567 of Fort San Juan, the first Spanish colonial settlement in the interior of what became the United States. The state was also the home of the Roanoke Island colony, the first attempt by the English to establish a presence in the Americas.

Today, it is a fast-growing state with an increasingly diverse economy and population. As of July 1, 2007, the population was estimated to be 9,061,032 (a 12% increase since April 1, 2000). Recognizing eight Native American tribes, North Carolina has the largest population of American Indians of any state east of the Mississippi.

North Carolina has a wide range of elevations, from sea level on the coast to almost 6,700 feet (2,042 m) in the mountains. The climate ranges widely from the coastal Tidewater and Piedmont to the western mountains. The coastal plains are strongly influenced by the Atlantic Ocean. Most of the state falls in the humid subtropical zone. More than 300 miles (500 km) from the coast, the western, mountainous part of the state has a humid continental climate.
