Well i'll let you know when i am there, meet uo with you and Amy or something!

I am living in North Carolina now which is close to Virginia. I don't know if you know that I moved or not. I'm up for meeting you and I guess I can handle being around Ben again if you come this far north.

I've only been here 2 weeks. And they already had snow to welcome me here properly. I will stay "TexasRN" on here since I have lived all over the country but lived in Texas more years than any other state. Plus, Texas rocks.

And i would say we are closer to you than lets say Mexico, Japan, and Brazil for example.

So why do we make it so hard for Visa's between our two nations.

To me it is just ludicrous! And i have some horror stories to prove it that both sides we are far too overzealous with visas.

My Girlfriends, friend was with a delagation coming to England working for a charity called Invisiable Children.
http://www.invisiblechildren.com/home.php

It is an extremely worthwhile chairty, and there has been presentations all over the U.S to raise awareness and funds. Now i said i would help this girl organise some events here, so i got in touch with the Christian Union at my University,a nd my old schools etc.

So what happens, they land in London, held at immigration and asked their purpose. They stated the truth, they are here doing volunteer work for a charity.

They were immediately sent on a flight home, the reason that the law had changed days before saying that, one must have a Visa to come here to do charity work. MAddening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a customer at my work, extremely intelligent, hard worker,a credit to the country and she is forced and hurried into things to obtain a visa. She now cant extend a loan to help pay for further study. It beggars belief, a hard working, decent american, working here and she is chastised. She has to be earning certain amounts, she needs a bank balance of 32k.

All the while, this country lets in immigrants from all over Europe who can now work here, Poland, etc etc you name it, no problem, good luck to them but most send money home a lot cheat the taxman.

Then we also have huge amounts of illegal immigrants, but no be to have a top colllege degree in law and to work hard, or to work for charity and you life is made hard. between two nations where there should be no problem.

Now dont get me wrong, i know why Visa's are needed, you must protect the local workforce but cmon if the borders were opened up, not too many Yanks would emigrate to the U.K to live or to work and likewise back. I dont think there would be a major issue.

I guess what my frustration boils down to is that my Girlfriend will be doign a Masters in England to obtain a visa so she can get here. Other than that the chance of getting here is remote, which i think is stupid. Likewise if i wanted to come to America to work, i really dont think i would get a Visa!

So in the end the only way is a quick trip to Vegas, and do a Elvis Wedding!

Ha ha i am a long way of that but thought i would vent! If anyone has advice for obtaining Visas either side of the water, then let me know!
Jon....when you go on holiday to the US you dont need a Visa...or at least you didnt in 2007...I think there is an extra form you have to fill out now...but....I assumed that was what you were talking about, before I realize you were talking about immigration

Ha ha yes i know about that form, all done and dusted!

I just truly think that there is no need for the USA and the Uk to have tough immigration laws between eachother when there clearly made for other nations.

There should be a more relaxed system for US and Uk citizens to travel between countries and even work.

I've been around the world
I've seen some pretty faces
Been with some beautiful girls
But after all I've witnessed one thing still amazes me
Just like a miracle you have to see to believe

'Cause God blessed Texas with His own hand
Brought down angels from the promised land
Gave 'em a place where they could dance
If you wanna see heaven brother here's your chance
I've been sent to spread the message
God blessed Texas

First He lit sunshine
Then He made the waters deep
Then He gave us moonlight
For all the world to see
Well everybody knows that the Lord works in mysterious ways
He took a rest then on the very next day

God blessed Texas with His own hand
Brought down angels from the promised land
Gave 'em a place where they could dance
If you wanna see heaven brother here's your chance
I've been sent to spread the message
God blessed Texas

Mmm...God blessed Texas
