Well, this is a year or so away, but I've got to start thinking about my future and what I'm going to do when I leave Okinawa in August 2007. I'll be a PADI OWSI and hopefully MSDT with quite a few other strings to my bow (at least 8 specialties, Mares equipment specialist, DAN Oxygen Provider instructor, Gas Blender instructor, compressor management, resort management etc). I've been in touch with my friend in Florida, and she's told me she should be able to find me work with one of the dive schools in Florida. That seems great, but I'm just wondering how hard it would be to get a working visa.
Has anyone had any experience doing this, and if so could you offer me some advice? How hard is it to do, how long does it take, how much does it cost etc. Anything you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance
