U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has published an updated Welcome to the United States: A Guide for New Immigrants booklet. The guide contains practical information to help new immigrants settle into everyday life in the United States, including how to find a place to live, how to get a Social Security number and how the U.S. system of government works. Available in 14 languages (English, Arabic, Chinese (traditional), Chinese (simplified), French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Urdu, Vietnamese), this publication has recently been updated to include:
- Revised and updated general information on policies, programs and resources;
- A refreshed layout and design;
- A new chapter called “Taking Care of Your Money” on personal finance, taxes and financial scams; and
- A new chapter called “Understanding Education and Health Care” on the education system, adult education programs and the health insurance marketplace.
You can download free copies in 14 languages on the USCIS website and purchase printed copies in English, Spanish and Chinese through the U.S. Government Bookstore.
