For many Afghan SIV applicants, deciding on where they would like to live in the United States after getting their visa issued is a hard decision.
I have always advised for choosing a low cost area with good climate where you have relatives, family or friends that can help you after arrival. However, if you not sure where to live, then I would like to suggest choosing city of Rochester in New York State.
One of the biggest advantage of resettling in Rochester is that the No One Left Behind (NOLB) Rochester branch is very active in the area and have a good resettlement assistance program for newly arrived Afghan SIVs.
