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.
