Peddling as fast as I can
Chances are, you'll have to be a British Citizen or Landed Immigrant, and you have to be an aviation maintenance engineer, the UK equivalent of the A&P

No you don't have to be British, they will hire foreign individuals as needed to fill vacancies, I would have been all over it if I had an A&P license. It's only a couple of hours from the US and a beautiful place.

Its an awesome place!!!

You still need the Aviation Maint. Tech license issued by the UK, and I don't believe the A&P is transferable. Could be wrong though!!:panic:

Then you have to get the work permit. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]In order to work in the BVI, a work permit is needed, except for 'Belongers', naturalized citizens and holders of a certificate of residency. Work permits are issued only when there is no suitable local applicant for the job. Now, considering its a government agency, maybe they can pull the right strings:bandit:
