I'd also assume that coming from the UK, it should be quite easier to obtain one as opposed to if you were from a nation on the DHS watch list. As for the 3 months wait, if the USCIS is anything like the DMV, I'd expect a ridiculously longer return time and an unnecessarily complicated application process.

America- Hurry up and wait

Good luck.

Default Good luck Gary

I believe a work permit is granted only if there's a job waiting for you and usually the employer helps in the paperwork and to verify the need for a foreign skilled worker as opposed to an American. However, maybe I'm wrong. If you're in the medical field, an Registered Nurse or doctor, you'd have no problem. Otherwise, the best thing to do might be to come on a tourist visit and overstay and work under the table at restaurants or some other type of employment you can can be paid in cash. Just be aware, if you're caught, you'll be denied entry into the USA in the future once they throw you out. Too bad you're not Mexican. They just crawl over, under, and through the border and then boldly demand rights!

Garry, you're going about it the right way by wanting to do everything legally. You'll just have a much better life here that way. Hope things work out for you and we can welcome you to the U.S.A.

Yes that is also the same with me but am coming from New Zealand and want to get a job in aviation.

Also getting US Citizenship, i've read and heard that it is hard.

I am also in a similar situation. I am a UK citizen and am getting married to a girl working in US on H1-B visa. Is it possible for me to get a work permit in US once I go over there on H4 visa?

You guys need to talk with a lawyer specializing in Immigration issues (its the US, we have a lawyer for everything ) I don't know how much it costs but I'm sure you can call them for free. Pm me and I can recommend one. Good Luck!
