Did you know we have several teams dedicated to your success in America? 

‍When you arrive to the United States it is safe to assume you will be full of different emotions; excitement, relief, anxiety and perhaps a little apprehension. That is why we have several internal teams dedicated to your success in America. Our Arrival Coordinators, International Deployment Associates (IDA) & International Employee Associates (IES) are committed to making your transition into the U.S. as seamless as possible.

Before your departure, the IDAs review your arrival instructions during your Pre-Deployment Orientation to assure you’re aware of what the arrival process entails. Your IES also conducts a pre-arrival phone call to ensure you understand your arrival instructions and answer any questions you may have. Once you’ve landed, one of our experienced Arrival Coordinators will be at the airport to greet and assist you as you get acclimated to life in the U.S.Once you’ve arrived and begin to settle into your new home, our IES team completes multiple check-ins during your first few weeks and bi-weekly check-ins through orientation and quarterly check-ins thereafter. Our IES team is dedicated to your success as a healthcare professional and is your advocate throughout your assignment with PassportUSA.

When You Team Up With PassportUSA, You Partner With the Best

Arrival Perk #1:

The Arrival Coordinator

The Arrival Coordinator assists in several activities, including but not limited to: opening a bank account, completing a drug screen and other credentialing items, picking up transportation (if applicable), applying for a Social Security number, completing new hire paperwork, reviewing policies, and procedures, setting up apartment viewings, completing a mini-driving orientation, grocery shopping, driving by the client facility, exploring your new community, etc.! In some cases, our Arrival Coordinator will also introduce you to other local PassportUSA RNs who work and live in the area.

Arrival Perk #2:

$1,500 Arrival Bonus

It’s important to us that your arrival to the United States is special, memorable, and efficient. As you begin your first few days in the USA, our Arrival Coordinator's mission is to support you in every way possible as you get acclimated to your new home. For example, a very important arrival activity is opening up a bank account and securing a debit card. We understand there can be a brief delay before you begin working, so PassportUSA provides a $1,500 Arrival Bonus (+ $2,000 Housing Allowance) to offset your expenses until you begin actively working.

Arrival Perk #3:

$2,000 Housing Allowance

As you begin preparing for your #FirstDayInTheUSA, we understand every individual has specific needs to be met, and that no two arrivals are the same. We also understand securing a long-term housing option can feel intimidating and/or overwhelming. While we encourage our candidates to research their assigned location and community, we also provide support from our Travel & Housing team to assist in finding long-term accommodations that suit you and your family's needs. As you get settled into your new home, we provide a $2,000 Housing Allowance (+ $1,500 Arrival Bonus) to cover the initial cost of housing, deposits, and any necessary household items.

Arrival Perk #4

Arrival Ambassador

Not only does PassportUSA provide an Arrival Coordinator (an internal representative from our corporate office) to assist you in the first few days in the USA, but also, when available, PassportUSA provides an Arrival Ambassador (a PassportUSA representative who is currently living in your assignment location area). By supplementing the arrival experience with the Ambassador Program, our goal is to assist our new arrivals with local expertise and mentorship.

Arrival Perk #5

Cell Phone + Swag Bag

Upon arrival, you will receive a PassportUSA swag bag and a free smartphone! The swag bag features a PassportUSA branded t-shirt, pop socket, and more!
