    Well done guys. I haven't had anything through yet. Just a question to Simon, any idea what happens with the visa situation? Surely it takes more than a few weeks to get one from here? I know when I went in 2003 it took a couple of weeks to get the appointment and a couple more to get the visa back?

    Last year I managed to go from interview -> flight in 21 days. So it's possible. For the visa, I could only get an appointment at Belfast, which was a tad inconvenient, but the visa did arrive home the very next day (in fact the visa arrived home before I did!).

    Hello Everyone,
    I posted this in another discussion forum as well BUT I was wondering if anyone could forward the e-mail about summer jobs to me. I haven't been on the site in a little while and saw this discussion.
    So if you still have the e-mail or contact information can you please send it to me!

    Congrats guys! ;D

    I've not heard a single sausage yet. I'll try calling tomorrow if I still haven't heard.

    Andy, it's an H-2B visa, I called last week to get more info. ;D That was about the extent however, of the info I managed to gather. ::) ;D

    Hey Ona!

    Tam has heard nothing yet either and dependant on whether she is offered anything or not will depend if I consider further.

    The visa they are issuing, is it strictly in that work location, or can you pick up OT in other areas, such as merch seeing as we're merch trainers and everything!

    I'm impressed that you sought out the answer for my question before I asked it :p Hehe

    *goes off to look at the State Department website*

    Ah, a quick bit of detective work shows this program is due to the fact Disney can't find enough US workers willing to accept their positions, despite appropriate advertising campaigns! Nice! ;D

    I'd forgotten how useless the State Department's website is. Anyhow, from another site I've discovered the following:

    "The H2B working visa is a nonimmigrant visa which allows foreign nationals to enter into the U.S. temporarily and engage in nonagricultural employment which is seasonal, intermittent, a peak load need, or a one-time occurrence."

    From that, I suspect it's similar to the J1-S in that there are no restrictions on work locations. So the lucky people actually able to go should be able to pick up Extra Hours wherever they please :)

    That doesn't surpise me...

    But it does make me wonder (yet again...) why past participants on the ICP aren't allowed to re-participate ::)
    I feel like sending another e-mail...:p

    Hey Simon, The visa is for temporary seasonal jobs for which there is a gap in the labor market (they can technically be issued for up to 1 year but it depends on what evidence disney has submitted and clearly they are only interested in us for those 7 months). Since Disney is sooooooooo understaffed, especially in summer, I can't see why you couldn't work in any other cp role. It's Disney's preferance rather than the govt. :-\

    Andy, I like to be efficient. ;)
