    Working in the US info

    Hello. First of all, the forum is very good! I would like to inform me for something. I would like to know if someone who is not living in US could work as a programmer in US? For example, I live in Greece and I' m planning to come to LA to work as a programmer! Is this possible? I think the issue is the visa card but I don't know almost nothing about working in IT jobs in the US. Does this depends the employer or the company?
    Thanks in advance

    It should be possible, but US immigration law is pretty complex. Might be a good idea to contact your local US embassy in Greece to ask about the process.

    It's my understanding that, to work for a company in the US, you need that company to sponsor you for a "Green Card". But I'm no immigration expert.

    Read this. And you will need an attorney. I;m sure there are many in LA who practice immigration law. http://www.uschamber.com/issues/inde...ration/h1b.htm
