Default Booking an Appointment in New York??

Please I need your help. I'm a US citizen who got married last week to a UK citizen and I want to book an appointment at the British embassy in New York to get my work permit due to the fact that we want to live in the UK. How can I get this done??

Tip and advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi - have you tried the website for the British consulate in NY? I got my spousal visa (that's what you want, not a work permit) there in 2006 but I don't know how the procedures might have changed since then.

I'm not sure what's in NY... but the Britsh Embassy is in Washington DC.

There's a Consulate in New York, on 3rd or 2nd Avenue, I think.

He means the consulate in NYC - it issues spousal visas for Americans who are resident in the northeastern states.

Thanks guys for some input and advice. Anyone knows if i have to call the 900 number to book an appointment?? Or is there a better way to book one online without paying any fees.

Hi,

Have you read the information on the page I linked? All the data is there. Use the "Do I need a visa?" button, fill in the fields, follow the directions. It's pretty clear but you do have to read the information.

PS: The purpose of your visit is to "join family" - your UK spouse.
