I am a citizen of the United States, would it be possible for me to be hired as a pilot by say, Lufthansa or British Airways? Or any other airline outside of the United States?


Cleared for the option...

Hi ,,,

I see no reason why an airline can't employ a foreign nation pilot as long as they comply with the rules and requirements .

I don't know about Europe, Asia or other regions ,but I can tell you that there is lots of pilots in our region that are not citizens of these countries ,for example ,Emirates , Qatar Airways ...well ,basically all the airlines in the region .

My regards ,,,

Many asian and middle-eastern airlines hire expats, but you won't get a job in western Europe without being an EU citizen.

As a matter of fact, there are some countries which restricts the issuance of a commercial pilots license and the right to work to only born citizens, such Mexico. Fortunately the majority of countries do not follow this restriction and welcome other citizens as long as they have the proper immigration status (legal right to live and work) AND have the proper licenses converted or acquired.
