My boyfriend is coming to stay with me in the US for 84 days under the visa waiver program, he is looking for a soccer job or employment. If someone finds interest in him and wants him to join their team, how will he need to go about this? Does he need visas, documentation, anything? He is traveling from London, UK.

Unless he is eligible to work in the US, he's going to have to get a work visa of some kind. Questions about that would probably be better asked on the 'Expatriates' site. –  DJClayworth Mar 29 at 19:39

1 Answer 1

It is legal to look for work whilst in the US under the Visa Waiver Program, however it is NOT legal to actually work whilst on the WVP.

If he is offered any form of employment within the US he will need to return to his home country and apply for a work visa for the US. Depending on the specific situation, obtaining such a visa will be somewhere between complicated and impossible.
