Default USA and Cisco bods

Hi all,

I live in the UK and am looking to move to USA, hopefully Cali area.

I have been a Network Support Engineer (predominantly cisco equipment) for 8 years plus now and have just obtained my CCNP and have also served an apprenticeship in Telecommunications amongst some lesser qualifications. However I have no degree

Is a CCNP and an apprenticeship enough to get through the US immigration system or do I not stand a chance?

Also it seems you need a job offer before applying for work permits, how willing are US employers to do this in my type of work?

Does it make a difference if I want to work there permanently or temporarily? I realistically will only want to work there for 2 years tops.

Please help.

No you dont im afraid. Unless you marry a US citizen and then apply for a green card or be lucky enough for a inter company transfer or have a few hundred grand to start your own business you cannot live or work in the US.

As I thought

I just found out my work will sponsor me through a degree so my only option is that at the moment.

Thanks for the replies
