    Visa's seem to be impossible to get without sponsorship...Does anyone know how to attain a visa or sponsorship without jumping through hoops for months on end?

    Do you have any professional qualifications?

    Ive been looking at the trainee visa alright, and i'd have 5 years experience working for a family electrical wholesalers as a sales representative, but this requires a sponsor stateside which will be a nightmare to get.

    Im just after finishing an electrical apprenticeship as well, but its a level 6 qualification which doesn't seem to qualify me for the trainee visa either.. hmmmm :/

    Sorry to be blunt but based on what you have said your chances are almost 0....

    Google the american embassy in ireland & follow their website links to visa applications for Irish - there is a dense wealth of information there about the many different visa types and when they are offered and whom may apply. Given all the Trump nonsense it would be prudent to be prudent. Canada or Oz?

    Jumping through hoops for months on end is what gets you there...and that's assuming your skills and qualifications tally with visa requirements.
