I've deleted your previous post, the photos have your partners full name, DOB etc on them! We don't need to see his qualification anyway, bottom line is if he's not got a degree as a minimum and/or specialist skills then an employment based visa isn't going to be possible for now.

But if you're determined then just look at a longer term plan - one of you get some further education, move in to a managerial or more senior position, and try the company transfer visa route maybe?

Were there any options on the two links given above that you thought might fit your situation? Maybe there's something you've not jentioned yet that might be a possible route?

Bear in mind that most of us here on BE are either here in the US because of family, or were transferred by employers. Those that made their own way over are probably mostly working in some aspect of IT. There are a small number who work in either research or in higher education as a lecturer.

Therefore the prospects of either you or your husband advancing your education to the point where you are so well qualified that you are a better prospect that anyone who could be hired locally in the US, because that is what would be required, looks to me to be extremely remote.

With all due respect, neither of you have qualifications and are in jobs that, with a bit of tweaking, and an extra diploma or a US certification would suddenly become worth investing $8,000-$10,000 in legal and visa fees, not to mention any relo package, and wait several months, to hire.

You both do jobs that there are many thousands of people already doing in the US, and the US visa system is set up to make it very difficult, if not impossible, for employers to hire an immigrant who is currently outside the US to do a job that there are already Americans who are able to do the job.

The US work visa system is designed to bring in immigrants with specialist skills that are in short supply in the US and your jobs and qualifications don't look to me to provide a foundation for obtaining exceptional, in-demand skills that would support a visa application. Sorry.

This! If you love holidaying here, then stay in Europe. You can then spend more leisure time here than people who live here.
