各位前辈们好,
我刚刚从英国一所大学毕业,念的是翻译专业。因为男朋友要去美国工作,所以有可能的话也想在美国做一些翻译。想问一问各位大虾们如果在美国做自由翻译的话签证应该怎么解决呢?(目前我想到的是办H4,就是亲属签证,但不能去公司工作,不知道能不能当自由译者。)现在在美国也还没有什么network,万事开头难,难于上青天啊~
不知各位对我的情况有没有什么好的建议,或者有什么翻译认证or协会可以推荐的?
先谢过大家了!

H-4 visa Jun 22, 2011

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H-4_visa
Family members may alternatively be admitted in other non-immigrant categories for which they qualify, such as the F-1 category for children or spouses who will be students or the H-1B category for a spouse whose employer has also obtained approval of an H-1B visa petition to employ the spouse. An H-4 visa holder is admitted to the US for the duration of the primary (H-1B, H-2A, H-2B, or H-3) visa validity.[1]

Since H-4 visa holders are not issued a social security number, an ITIN (Individual tax identification number) should be obtained before filing for joint tax returns by filing Form W-7. They are not authorized to work in the United States, though they are allowed to study.

根据以上所述,你不能做自由翻译,但你可以去找工作。找到工作后,你就可以申请把签证改为H-1B。但是你得注意,即使你找到工作,也不能马上去上班。你必须得先申请H-1B,否则还是属于非法工作。哪怕你只是非法工作一天,以后找工作或申请绿卡时也会有麻烦。至于是否等移民局接受你的H-1B申请后(而不是等批准之后)你就可以马上上班,你得查一下现行的法规,或向律师咨询。

如果你想读书的话,可以等学校录取之后申请把签证改为F-1,等毕业后再找工作。在美国找工作,通常雇主要求申请者有美国或其它国家 "accredited school” 的学位证书(当然不是唐先生那种可以“复制”或“复印”的“学位证书”)。

以上建议仅供参考。Good luck!
