Working in Houston is simple if you’re a US citizen but if you are a British or Australian national, an agency may be able to secure a work visa but the specific type will change depending on which role you’re travelling to Houston to work for. All information on these visas can be found on the US embassy website and it is best to seek advice from your future employer because the US are renowned for being strict on their immigration policies.
