    I Think is more easy for you to find a Truckdriverjob in Canada. I Think Bison help Peoples from Europe ,after when you in Canada you have more choises to come to USA

    You will be more readily accepted in the American trucking industry if you have a good command of the ENGLISH language. From your post it would appear that you are fluent in English. As far as going to Mexico.....that poster is just having fun with you. Get your green card and go from there.

    Thank you for your advice sir, but the Green Card is actually the problem. As far as I know getting one is pretty hard unless you are some genius or you have some skills that almost no one has in the USA. Otherwise, except marrying an American woman, I don't know how you could get a Green Card. :???:

    There is a way to get the Green Card :biggrin_255:

    Take part in the Diversity Lottery, I think if you're born in Italy it will be possible.

    http://www.uscis.gov/green-card/oth...card-through-diversity-immigrant-visa-program

    I'm from Germany, was in Canada for about three years, driving truck all around Canada and USA. After I won in the Green Card Lottery, it took about one year to process my application and I got issued the visa at the American Consulate in Frankfurt/Germany.

    It's more difficult nowadays to get a work permit in Canada and I wouldn't recommend it, Canadians are not so friendly as it seems to be :biggrin_25510:

    There is also a provision in our immigration laws for people to work in shortage fields. Talk to our embassy people and see if they can help you. If not...marry an American woman....:)

    There are more than 80 million people in Germany, I took part three years in a row and had luck!

    It's a lottery, but I know of many who won at the first attempt, but there are also people who try it for many years.
