Hello Ceri

I see you are posting the same question in the Canadian forum.

Are you asking because you and your partner want to move to the US or Canada?

We want to emigrate from the uk and we want to see where the better job prospects take us with my partners work, other than caravan and lodge holiday parks there is not much out there for his line of work with the majority of the uk on mains natural gas. Im a nail technician so I don't think my qualifications will be too different from over the pond.

No idea on the U.S., but for Canada I believe it's a regulated trade so you'll need to get certified to work there.

Your bf definitely works in a regulated trade in Canada, he'll need to get certified by the province he wishes to work in - proving hrs of experience and challenging the exam iirc, but search the Canada forums for more info.

HTH.

Your jobs won't get you visas, so if you don't have another way to get one then it's probably a non-starter for the U.S. Have a look here at the available visa options and let us know if any of them might fit? Pulaski's Ways: How to Live and Work in the USA : British Expat Wiki

Good luck.

This may be of some interest however I don't know if any of the interested employers can obtain visas.

Same in the US, though it'll depend on the state.
