    You didn't specify 'legal immigration', so just sneak in! Mind that you copy how one sneaks on computer games - bend down slightly and walk slowly. It boosts your sneak points by 10!

    You may get better information on forums specialized on these matters. A programming forum is hardly that place
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Agreed, I've known a number of immigrants but they all recieved visa's because they were scientists, professors, or diplomats and most went through a job opportunity.

    You kidding? We'll just hack his way in through the D-Base!! Oh wait, that's against the forum rules...

    Did you try passing a reference to the US in Country::getVisa()? Maybe declare your current citizen ship as pure virtual...

    Don't forget to take the conditional breakpoints, inline functinos, binders, negators, weak pointers, smart pointers, and general dynamic binding into account when designing the citizenship class. They are a little tricky with inheritance, apparently.

    search google for "immigration USA forums". Take some time browsing through them to get a feel. My guess is that some of them will be many things, but helpful. Also definitely USA Immigration must have websites guiding you through several options.

    USA is no different from many other countries, I guess. Options usually are (probably from easiest to hardest results-wise):

    . Student Visa (many countries go into student exchange protocols or whatever it is called. But you can still apply to this one without going through those protocols)

    . Sponsorship Programs (marriage, family and even friends)

    . Working Visa Programs (depends on your qualifications. Can be funny. Portugal, for instance, needs more hairdressers than doctors)

    . Sports (Much like working visa. But the sad truth in this life is that if you are good at sports, you may be a thief slash murderer slash rapist, but you can easily apply for a visa. This is actually the easiest one to apply. Should be up there, if not for the fact it's hard to be good at sports at an international level)

    . Exile (hard, hard, hard and you can put another hard on that. Best way to apply for this one is to enter the country illegaly. It's hard to apply for exile if your government allowed you to leave the country)

    Lots of countries do that. Are you sure you can't leave? Many countries, like France (or they used to anyway) require you join the army at 18, it wasn't your only option, though. Your other option is to have your citizenship revoked. I don't know for sure, but that might put you in a good chance for getting another citizenship if you have no country. But, you're sure you can't leave until you serve?

    For the records, I meant refugee, not exile. I have no idea why I wrote exile, other than probably my english failed me at that point.

    Exile is an entirely different process that is out of fashion these days.

    I'm sure, but if needed, maybe I can get rid of it.
    I am thinking about how to get visa as a refugee...

    Can't you find a hot chick for yourself there? Or they always hide when you come?

    You are threading on thin ice and I suggest you take this issue to a proper forum. Take my advice before you annoy more than a good share of people.
