Everything you ever wanted to know, and possible more: Frequently Asked Questions about the Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) - CBP.gov

One caution, though - VWP is only for short-term "visitors" to the US. It's primarily intended for tourists, but is often used by business people on short trips (i.e. to attend specific meetings or visit customer sites for their employer).
Cheers,
Bev

Hey my boyfriend is getting out of the UK army as well. As far as I know when you take your resettlement courses and build your CV then you can talk to someone about wanting to move to america and look into courses for what you would want to do. Personally I want my boyfriend to look into getting a 2 year degree with a trade job because trade jobs are always needed regardless of a bad economy. (at least thats what i think)

I hope this helps! I am trying to find out the same answers you are, good luck!

Unfortunately a trade job isn't going to help much in getting a visa for the US. If you're married to your boyfriend, you will have to show resources sufficient for sponsoring him or get someone else (your parents, for example) to co-sponsor on the financial side.

David's problem is that he will need a job with a visa sponsor before he can apply for any visa. And law enforcement is not the type of job where foreign applicants are likely to be sponsored.
Cheers,
Bev

What would be the best option then? I mean in order for him to come over?

Change of topic.

Referring back to the original subject of this thread, and in particular on the practicalities of moving to the US, I saw a couple of interesting websites that had decent information on day-to-day issues without devolving into visa and immigration stuff (for which there are millions of sites on the web).

Default Possible move to Tennessee

Hi All

Not sure is this is the right place to be posting this query but here goes...

I currently work for a company in the uk who are offering my family (wife and 4 kids) and i a relocation package to tennessee. I would prefer to try this on a temporary contract for say 12 months but they inform me this is not legal. Can anyone advise? Also what quality of living would a salary of $55000 provide considering rent, car etc needed? What are the schools like in Tennessee (Nashville area)? Thanks
