Immigrating to Massachusetts from India

2.2% of the city’s immigrants come from India. Many of them have taken up residence in the former West End and in Dorchester, two neighborhoods excellent in different ways. We’ve also seen thriving communities in the South End, Mission Hill, and Fenway-Kenmore.

Wherever you choose to live, you’ll find an amazing city full of things to do and see, places to shop and dine, and friendly people who will welcome you to our home.

Pursuing an Education

Boston is one of the best cities in the world for people who want to pursue an outstanding education. With over 30 colleges and universities and over 60 trade schools you’ve got a wide variety of options. We have prestigious Ivy League Schools standing side-by-side with affordable options.

Many of these schools work closely with local employers and provide lifelong networking opportunities that can help any graduate become a success.

Finding Employment

Many Indians find outstanding opportunities here in the Boston Metro Area. Most are working in high-paying organizations and positions. There are dozens of opportunities in medicine, engineering, and other STEM fields.

Starting a Business

Many Indians run a wide variety of businesses here, contributing to the thriving Massachusetts economy. Companies founded by Indian entrepreneurs attract plenty of investors and go on to become a major part of our city’s framework.

Two companies: ListEngage and Aqueduct Technologies, became two of the fastest-growing companies in Massachusetts.

If you want to join these amazing entrepreneurs, there are visa programs that can help you do just that.

The Consulate

There is no Consulate of India located in Boston; you’d have to go to New York or DC. You can email them at


The Immigrant Professionals Fellowship seeks to help immigrants who had medical training in their home country get jobs in the health care field here in the US while eliminating licensing barriers.

There are also multiple Hindu religious centers here in Boston. You can find a full list of them here.

Processing Times in Boston

USCIS is slow all over, and here in Boston wait times range from 7 to 24 months. Working with my office can help remove barriers that can delay your application. I can also ensure your application includes the right kind of evidence the first time out so that you are delayed by unnecessary RFEs.

Contact me to set up an appointment today! I look forward to being one of the first to welcome you to this wonderful city.
