Arrow All Help Appriciated

Hi I'm 20 years old and am looking to either A Immigrate to the United States or B At least work there for a while.

I am an actress in the UK with a BTEC National Dilpoma in performing arts. I also have seven years of Professional Wrestling experience under my belt as well. I would like to go to the US to either act, sing, dance and or wrestle.

I have spent many hours scouring masny websites for information on working in and or moving too the United States but everything I read has been so confusing.

So what I am saking is can anyone be kind enough to put it VERY simply how I would go about the process, what I need, what it may cost etc etc.

Not sure if any of your skills are on the shortage occupation list. Perhaps apply to the WWF for sponsorship. Have you ever wrestled crocodiles? I hear that is a growing industry. All the best.

Read this link and decide which category you fit.

From what you've said, you're unlikely to fit any of the obvious categories unless you're already well known for either your acting or wrestling.

You've been wrestling professionally since you were 13? Were you in the circus?

Thanks for the ridicule.

Yes I have been wrestling since I was 13. You can begin training as young as Tweleve and I know of some who have been trained at a younger age then that.

I've been competing on shows since I was 14. For more info check out http://www.myspace.com/lovefaithxxx

I have tried sending my resume to the WWE but unfortunatley as I do not have silcone breast nor am a US Citizen, they do not want to know.

Besides, isn't the marriage thing kind of illegal?

This forum tends to joke about everything - please join in and enjoy, I don't think it was really meant as ridicule. I personally was more making fun of some of the guys here, although of course you'd have to know the personalities involved to get that impressoin.

It's legal enough to marry and immigrate here - it is not legal to marry ONLY for the purposes of immigration. It is actually easier than most work visas.

I'm no expert on the work visa part, but as others have said, I doubt your qualifications will get you a work visa here unfortunately.

Not as long as it is not solely for immigration benefit.
