Planning a move to the US, looking for info on green card, etc...

Hello, I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, sorry I couldn't find the right forum for it, (tried on the "jobs" area but works differently...)

I'm planning a move next year to NY to try to work there as an editor. Of course, I don't have a green card, I will just have the usual 3 months permit for staying...

I know it is difficult to get a green card, but will I get any chance to work without it? Is it possible to get it if someone is very interested in contracting me? I have a solid showreel and more than 5 years of experience, so in this case is it very difficult to find jobs now?

Thanks in advance for the info, and sorry for the offtopic.

There are 3 steps you need to follow:

1. get an immigration lawyer with experience in getting visas for artists in film & TV

2. get an immigration lawyer with experience in getting visas for artists in film & TV

3. get an immigration lawyer with experience in getting visas for artists in film & TV

Unless you get a fulltime job at a post house who will sponsor you for an H1B (deadline is april 4th I believe), you will need to apply for a EB-1 greencard or a O-1 VISA (I am currently on an O-1, and it takes some time to prepare the application). With both, you have to prove that you are an artist of "extraordinary ability" in order to qualify for the VISA. It's not easy to qualify but a good lawyer will help you with the process and it's absolutely a necessity to have a lawyer.The O-1 requires a sponsor, I am unsure if you need one for the greencard.


Hope that helps,

Krisztian
