Did you know, the search for the american dream
has caused great misery to many kenyans? Use our site to find all you need to know (e.g. potential problems
before you abandon your jobs etc.
Going to America has been the dream of a vast majority
of people from all over the work. America is a country
of dreams. America continues to be the Land of opportunities.
One of the major obstacles to working in the USA
is the law. Generally all countries
require Work Permit for foreigners to either work or reside for longer
periods of time. Whereas student visas (F1 ) are granted
relatively easily and short-term tourists Visa (B) are obtainable, work permit visas ( H1 ) are normally
available only through application by an employer
who has offered you a job. The employer must prove
that you have unique skills and abilities not possessed
by local citizens. This is expensive and time-consuming
to prove, so most employers will not offer a job to
a foreigner who does not already possess a work permit
or some other legal status, e.g. Green Card.
The various avenues
The following are some of the ways you can get to work in the US.
It is also possible to work illegally, i.e. without
a work permit
. We DO NOT recommend working illegally
because it puts you at risk of deportation, possible
fines, lowest wages (or failure to pay wages at all,
though rare) and other types of exploitation, and lack
of legal protection or health insurance in case of injury
or illness. Even worse, it may result in you being
for a Green Card.
In addition, be aware that new DHS rules require employers to check and report employees who are
not authorized to work.
