      Possible Work Opportunity in Texas

      Hi everybody.

      I've had a recent job offer and thought this would be the best place to ask my questions.

      There's a possibility I will be required to head up the American branch of a current UK company.
      We have worked in the USA before but only for a week or two at a time, but now the company would be
      looking for me to be based in the USA for minimum of 3 years.
      The work itself is a specialist job with only less than 100 people in the world qualified to complete the work.

      I have uk qualifications time served apprenticeship in engineering and 10 years experience in my field.

      Would these attributes enable me to work in the USA?
      I would also be bringing my wife and 3 year old son with me.
      Would my wife be able to enter the country and work as well?

      I've looked on-line but lots of it is in Jargon lol i think i could go to the USA on a h1-b visa is this correct?

      Many thanks for any help provided

      Hi Winty have you checked out the US immigration site? We do have a few members in the US, keep bumping the thread to hopefully get it noticed.
