Before trying to get work in the United States, it is necessary to acquire a Green Card (work permit) and an immigrant visa. America is one of the most difficult nations in the world to acquire a visa and work permit, due to the fact that it is the most desired country to immigrate to.
Consequently, it is vital that anyone wishing to immigrate to America, especially without a pre-arranged job, prepare well in advance all the papers that the U.S. immigration laws require.
An immigration petition must be filed by the possible employer for the immigration service to assess.
The subsequent wait to see if the petition is approved is not necessarily a long one. However, if and when the petition is approved, this does not mean that you will be issued an immigration visa number immediately. This is due to the fact that there is a fixed number of immigrants per nation allowed into America each year. Therefore it depends on how desirable it is in each nation to immigrate to The United States.
Please note that it is advisable to find a job before applying for a working visa, since it will make everything easier.
