Applying For U.S. Jobs From Overseas?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: Timeline

I would love to marry my fiance Hopefully next year (please see the issues in my signature). But I'm also wondering if it might be possible for him to get a work visa over here? I was just wondering how it worked, or how he could apply. If a U.S. employer would be likely to hire someone from overseas.

He is 32 years old (Egyptian) with a Bachelor's degree in English, has his teaching credentials, and is currently working as an English instructor (English As A Foreign Language) at a reputable private school in Saudi Arabia. He has also worked the same job in Kuwait in the past. If in the event he ever lives with me in the USA (hopefully through a marriage Visa), I was discussing the possibility of him switching over to being an Arabic teacher here in the USA, since that's his native language. And if you have your teaching credentials, technically, you could teach what you want.

But besides just the marriage visa, which will be rather complicated to get going, due to the situation in my signature-- do you guys think there is a way he could apply for like... An Arabic teaching position in the USA, and possibly get a work visa that way? I was just wondering what the likelihood is that a government agency or a college, etc. here in the USA might hire outside the country for that... Or how he might be able to go about trying it? He's a hard worker and educated, he's not a dead-beat, or a burden to society, or anything.

Help?

He could qualify for H1-b for either English or Arabic teacher, providing a school in US was willing to sponsor him for the visa. Does he have any other citizenships than Egyptian (say Canadian)? The answer to that question may make a substantial difference.

Hmmmm, H1-b? I'll have to read up on that. He only has Egyptian citizenship, but he does have a CELTA certificate, which is internationally recognized. He's very well spoken when he talks, he sounds almost British, lol. If I can help him find some way to get a government agency or school to sponsor him, I would love for him to try that.

He can certainly look for jobs, say at universties. However, applying for a work visa is quite costly for the employer, and considering how many Americans can speak Arabic and teach English, his chances of being taken on are very slim.

Govt agency do not sponsor for H1 visa, other prob is the security agencies who might have need for Arabic translator, might have to USC or GC holder who can go thru the security clearance.

Unfortunately it sounds either you have to met him somewhere in some other country where you can and him can meet and file for K1 or you will have to go to his country of residence get married and file for CR1.

There is no easy way out.

Most universities today require a PhD for teaching. There may be a few smaller ones that don't have this requirement, but then they would not have a need for an Arabic teacher.
