Default job offer

Any body got any advice

I have just had a job offer with an engineering company in York Pennsylvania. I am married with two small children 4/6 years old.What would be the best way to arrive in the usa . I am not sure whether we would need green cards or work permits.And how long it would take to aquire the visas. I can do some very specialised work which is not available in the states, so they are very keen on getting me out there as soon as possible.The employer is also looking into it. The only problem i can see is that it would be temporary to start with and whether or not we could settle there.

At least its not in FLA...

H1-B. Sponsored by the employer good for 6(?) years. No work related GC for you unless you happen to be an oustanding scientist , entertainer, doctor or nurse.

There is only two engineers in the uk that know how to do this procedure and i am one of them. Does this not qualify for a green card!!!

Have a look at the work section in this article:

Non Immigrant H1 visas here:

Immigrant Visas here:

That should get you started.

Your employer would have to sponsor you to work in the USA. It is your prospective employer whom you should be addressing.

What AWP means is that you cannot initially get a GC. You'll need the H visa - once you're here your employer can sponsor you for a GC but it takes a lot of time.

H visas are not easy to get, and there is a very narrow timeline involved. Need to get the future boss working on it ASAP and even so it's going to be longer than you expect.

At least its not a bricky.

Thats the UK... it more depends on how many are in the USA that know how to do the procedure on whether you will be successful in a visa application or not.
And no, that doesnt qaulify you for a GC. There are only very limited ways you can get a GC straight off, and outside of marrying a USC or winning the diversity lottery, being as doctor or nurse or one or two other extremely unlikely ways thats it. As an engineer your prospective employee can apply for an H1-B, non-immigrant visa. This can potentially be adjusted to GC after a number of years.

There is no one in the USA (at the moment) who has figured it out (yet) and the rest of the World. And it has been established and worked extremely well in the last 20 Years
