Euro / UK girls going to the USA for porn work

IF you are travelling with bona fide permission to work in porn, bloody well done!. You can stop reading now. You're all good. If not :-

Most girls going to the USA go under the Visa waiver scheme. THIS DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO WORK. It's for actual tourists.

First Trip

At passport control you claim to be a hot girl tourist hitting LA for shops and sun and stuff. They buy that and "welcome to the USA".

But be careful - be sure you can get paid in cash at the end of the shoot. I hear stories of production companies saying they will only pay into a US bank account, and what are gonna do, sue them?. Also read up on the 2257 rules and make it clear to people what ID you can provide BEFORE you shoot, even better, get it documented in email BEFORE YOU GO that they accept your ID as valid.

Your problems are likely to kick in on your SECOND (or subsequent) trips.

US Passport Control was not born yesterday.

Your passport is likely to show up as you have been to the US already, as a tourist. So, why are you back? Not many actual tourists make repeat trips from Europe within a year, except the rich. Do you LOOK rich? Can you PROVE it?

Hmm, thinks the passport guy, and starts to ask questions. What are you planning to see? Where are you staying? Have you got money/credit cards?

If you can't convince them you are a tourist with money, they'll hold you and put you on a plane home. AND BAN YOU FROM THE USA for several years.

But if they decide to check your phone and twitter, it's probably game over.

If I was a hot girl making a return trip to LA for porn work I'd make sure that my luggage is that of a tourist. Not a porn girl.

I'd also NOT land in LA. I'd plan a road trip - landing maybe in Seattle to drive South or East to drive across. "I was in LA last time, but now I want to do a road trip, ending in LA". That's a story that might sell.

Every subsequent trip is rolling dice. Good luck.
