Default Hairstylist moved to USA on K1 visa - Need advice please!

Hi All,

I moved to New York in August of last year on a K1 visa. I finally got my employment authorisation through on the 24th of December and I'm trying to apply for my Hairstylist licence here. I only currently have my Diploma level 1 and NVQ Diploma level 2 certificates and to apply for the licence I need all three of the following:

(1) a school certificate;
(2) a school transcript listing subjects and hours completed;
AND
(3) a current, original Certification of Licensure from your state board or, if not licensed, a current Certification from your state's board verifying the hours claimed.

I believe the certificate I have covers part 3 and I've emailed my school to try and ask them for the other two but the only thing they've sent me is a copy of my learning agreement which states how many hours/weeks I agreed to complete.

My question is, are there any other UK originated hairdressers or NVQ qualification holders on here that can help me figure out what paperwork I need and where to get it?

Thank you.

Get in touch with the state board would be the best thing.

You might need to start from scratch.

I know in my State there are organisations that are recognised to translate foreign qualifications.

No doubt the specifics vary State by State like everything else.

Here in SC, my wife (with 30 years experience) had to go back to college and complete 1500 hours of 'training' at a ridiculous cost!!

Did you look at this?
NYS Division of Licensing Services

Have you been working for more than 5 years and can provide the documentation asked for?
