Once received you can use it at any time you want to move in the United States or just travel. The visa must be renewed after 10 years.
Although you will have all the rights that a U.S. citizen has in the United States, without a relative or friend in the United States you may find the relocation difficult and expensive due the lack of experience in the American society. Therefore the U.S. Government helps you with accommodation options that you may attach to your visa. These options are not free but are sponsored by the U.S. Government so you may find them convenient as they are cheaper, under market price :
Option #1 : Health Insurance Amount (per person)
Freedom HSA Direct Individual Health insurance for 1 year $200
Option #2 : Dwelling Amount (per apartment)
Apartment in New York, Queens(1 bedroom) for 3 months $400
Option #3 : Guaranteed job Amount (per person)
A job in the field that you are are currently qualified so you can start working even from the first week you arrive in the United States and get paid as U.S citizen. $300
Option #4 : Education Amount (per person)
Education for U.S. Students or Higher Education through EducationUSA. It includes transfer to a U.S college or Univeristy so you can continue your educational study. More details can be found at http://educationusa.state.gov/
We remind you that only the visa processing fee ($880) is mandatory and the above options are optional so you are not required to pay any of them. However if you don't pay now once arrived in the United States you need to manage everything by yourself.
Accompanying family members(wife/husband, fiancee, brothers, sisters, children, cousins) may be included in the program and their visas will be provided at the same time with yours so you can travel/move together in the same time. However the fees must be paid per person. There is no discount for children.
