    so, i'm debating what to do in my life at the moment and i'm seriously considering moving to london.

    my best friend moved out there about 6 months ago and said she'd be willing to help me in any way she could. (which is basically providing me with a place to stay til i get on my feet)

    however, i was wondering if anyone knew how to go about finding a company that will sponsor me to get a work visa? is this really hard to do? is there anything else that could be a huge obstacle in my way?

    any information from anyone who has done this or knows anything about moving abroad will help!

    I'm not sure, best thing to do is go to the UK Embassy's website for your nation or the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (www.fco.gov.uk) and have a look about.

    I think the UK is getting increasing right wing when it comes to immigration so it may be hard to get a visa if you're 'un-skilled.' But I'm guessing the rules are a little lighter for US citizens, but I could be wrong.

    Just moved to London two days ago and really enjoying it! Just trying to find a better job now!
