Working Visa for American

Postby AnnMandy » Tue 26 Nov 2013 09:41 GMT

Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips or direct me towards a good website, to help a daughter of a friend of mine navigate her way through the process of gaining a working visa for Malta. Only for a couple of months or so?

I am not there yet myself, and besides, the process is of course very different for those outside the EU.

I know this is a forum for Brits, but thought that maybe some of you might have friends out there from the States, who could offer a few pearls of wisdom, gained through experience?

This forum is for all nationalities :-) as a non EU national, they will find it very difficult to get a work permit. They can come for up to 3 months as a tourist, but are not allowed to work

I can tell you all about trying to get a Work Visa for the USA but not the other way round - however if it's as bad as it is getting a USA work visa then I think the chances are pretty much zero.

There are schemes in Australia for young people to get a limited work visa but nothing similar here. And the penalties getting caught working for both the employer and employee are such that no employer would consider it these days.

Thanks both of you.

O Lord, Mark, I didn't think it was that hopeless! :shock: (I don't think they did either!) I imagine they would need to be sponsored by an employer to get one?

And thanks Maxine. I remember me and my daughter struggling over getting her a us visa, many years ago. She got one in the end. It was worth it but not something I would want to repeat any time soon! We used this site here then;

I was hoping there might be a similar thing for the EU. :(

Yes, would need to find an employer willing to get a work permit for her. Even if found that, it's still not easy to get as have to show no non EU citizen wants the job and is equally qualified
