If you’re interested in learning (or re-learning) the history of our visas and residency cards, click away where indicated — and in order, if you’re like me. If you don’t want to spend your time clicking, then just enjoy the music at the end.
Some of you may remember the hoops we jumped through in California in 2011 to obtain our residency visas (click here and here and here).
