    Default Need Some Help With Work Authorization

    I am from South Africa and currently working with an International company on an H1B visa here in the USA. This is my second 6mo employment visit over the past two years. I now wish to stay and immigrate permantly to the USA. My company does not have a permanant position for me here.

    I am curious as to how I can go about obtaining a right to work status in the USA without a company sponsor? I hold a graduate degree and am an accountant with a very large company.

    I am familiar with the process of getting sponsored by a company to work in the USA, but this appears difficult as getting an employer to go through the effort of hiring a non-citizen is quite a challange when they can hire a local worker without the extra work.

    Is there any process available that will allow me to come to the USA without an employment or family sponsor in hopes of securing a job once I am here? I am financially secure and can afford to stay here well over a year without working, and have plenty of savings (excess of 100k USD).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I do have a boyfriend who is quite serious with me as I am him, but having only dated for 6mos, neither of us is ready to commit to marriage, and certainly would not do that for the benifit of any government qualifications.

    Based on what yo have said, for now you need to find another work visa, and perhaps a new employer who will sponsor you for a Green Card.
