      Hi,

       

      I’m French Canadian, running on a tourist visa for 1 year in Hawaii.  I’m computer programmer as well as videographer and I would like to work in Hawaii.  The immigration tells me that I need a work permit to be allowed to work in the USA.  What is odd is that to get a work permit, I have to find an employer willing to sponsor me but no employer is interested to hire anyone with no work permit...  I have been at the immigration more than once and every time, they don't have answers to my questions…

       

      I don't know what I can do to achieve my goal. I thought to launch my own videographer business, to register it to be legit via this website and to sponsor myself to get the work permit.  It’s a bit tricky but could someone tell me if this is feasible.  I'm very confused with all these US regulations.  I really need help.  Please, let me know if you have any advices.  Thanks in advance.

       

      Regards.

      Carl

      Hello Carl,

       

      That does sound like a tricky scenario. You have to have A before you can get B but in order to get A you have to have B.

       

      We have an attorney listed for Immigration Services in Hawaii and maybe they can help you with this.
