What is the difference between getting a J1 Visa and just coming out on the 90 day visa you pay for on the ESTA Website? I was just looking it summed up briefly, lot of bullsh*t on those websites. Is having it any better off versus doing it the other way! Obviously the J1 Visa is aimed at students and I can apply for it, but few friends who aren't students are just getting this 90 day visa https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/
If I'm just coming out on it and the club are providing a job for me (probably going to be labouring on site) can I still get a job in bars etc or do you need the social security number that's provided with a J1 Visa?
There just seems to be a lot of hassle registering for the J1 and they have to know where you're staying and be registered and all that jazz!
Would a bartender make as much money as your typical lad out for the summer on site?
I've fair bit of bar experience but I'll get by grand with the laboring I'm sure!
