Esta Question when travelling on VWP to look for work on E3 Visa

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

I am travelling to USA on the VWP to look for work to obtain an E3 Visa.

I am allowed to do this according to source here: http://canberra.usembassy.gov/e3visa/apply_search.html

"CAN I TRAVEL TO THE UNITED STATES ON THE VISA WAIVER PROGRAM TO FIND A JOB OR ATTEND INTERVIEWS AND THEN APPLY FOR THE E-3 VISA ONCE I RETURN TO AUSTRALIA?

Yes, you can travel on the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) if you meet the requirements (please see our page on the Visa Waiver Program). "

So, I can do this. I was just filling out my ESTA renewal and one of the questions has made me a bit nervous. After all of the "are you a criminal?" "Are you a drug addict?" comes this:

"Are you currently seeking employment in the United States or were you previously employed in the United States without prior permission from the U.S. government?

I have no idea how to answer this. I am there to try and find a job, however won't be getting a job there (I need to fly back to Australia to get the visa) and I have not emplyed without permission previously.

Can anyone else who has done a similar thing to me let me know how they answered this question and what happened with their ESTA application?

Thanks.
