Make sure you have your flight booked and that you have arranged transportation from the airport to your temporary new home. Depending on where in the United States you choose to work, the transportation options from the airport will vary widely. Major cities have several options for mass transit including trains, subways and buses. Smaller cities and rural locations will have fewer options. Ensure you have adequate funds for your trip and have an emergency plan in place in the event you need to secure additional funds while in the United States.

If you have multiple legs for your flight make sure you know how much time you have between those flights (layover) and if you have to change air carriers during those legs make sure you have enough time to disembark your aircraft, get your luggage and check in with the other airline.
