Rob,

Pat doesn't know anything! Go! It is really easy! I can talk to my uncle and see if he can pull some strings.
I hope he listens to me like the little puppy dog he is when Pat shouts out commands. LOL!

Dave

First of all, a TN Visa is a temporary work Visa for trips to the US. It does NOT allow a person to move to the US. Secondly, you must have a job offer FIRST before they can grant you a Visa, and three, used car salesman doesn't appear on the list.

You can remain in the States for up to a year and can renew it yearly (don't even have to leave the country). I have a half dozen friends who have done this for over 3 years... its the easiest way to get into the States.

Staying is another story, and yes a car salesman doesn't appear in the list. There's many far reaching jobs that fall under this umbrella and with a friend's help the employment reference is easy to come by. Its a risky game to play because there's a chance of getting blacklisted but is easy to pull off if you're prepared and do your homework.

Replying to the rest of your post would just be pointless fan flaming - in short you're not incorrect but there's simple ways to get around most of them with common sense and creativity.

Out of curiousity for what type of employment did you head down to the states for and what state?

Hey Pat, your information has helped me as well, see, my girlfriend lives in S. Carolina, (I miss her so much ) And I've been looking at moving down there for her, and she really wants it too, but alas, I have been doing the research and looks like hell to try and get down there legally (THats the only way I would go). Do you know of any other sites with useful info for me? Is there other kinds of Visa's that aren't temp? I need all the help I can get here guys. I really want to be with her....... Thanks guys.

Well we met up here when she was doing a DTS, its an outreach program. And we really hit it off obviously, she lives in Charleston, I'm actually headed down there this weekend to see her, she just flew up week before last to visit me. We try our hardest, but its hard being this far apart. Ya know? This is why I would l love nothing more than to move down to her.
