If your grandparents are in the US, they can sponsor your mother/father for Green Card citizenship, who would then need to sponsor you as I'm assuming you are over 18. If so, the whole process can take up to 3/4 years each time (usually nearer the 3 year mark), so you're in for a long wait.
Other ways - invest more than $1 million in a US business, which hires more than 10 US citizens etc.
In order to "get a normal job over there", you need a Green Card and/or US Citizenship - you can't just walk-in and say I'll work in the US and then can you guys give me a GC and/or USC, that's backward logic (i.e. you need the latter to do the former, not the former in order to get the latter). They have plenty of workers in the US to do "normal jobs" and with an unemployment rate of 10% and EVEN tougher immigration laws set to come in, don't bet on getting in anytime soon. Though marrying an American is a safe-bet
Sorry - its tough I know.
My grandparent's aren't in the US unfortunately, and I don't have $1 million
What about this:
I get my medical degree in the UK,
Do a degree in a US university, (possibly some kind of science degree, I could apply as an international student, my chances would be much greater than before as I would already have a medical degree/loads of experience),
then apply for a green card as I will have been studying in the US for X number of years, hopefully X will be greater than the period of time required to apply,
then with a green card I should be able to apply for a job practising medicine (would do the USMLE sometime during my second degree).
I'm scraping the barrel a bit now, I know
Would this be possible though? I know a girl who is doing a postgraduate degree at Harvard, and is planning on staying in America, would this be the kind of route that she is taking? Cheers
