Working from USA soil but as a traveller

Travel Forums North America Working from USA soil but as a traveller

Hey everyone,

I'm a freelancer from the UK looking to take advantage of the fact I work purely on the web. I'd love to spend a few months in America travelling casually, spending a few months in various places.

I understand you need a working visa to work there but as my business is essentially based in the UK and all my money and taxes will be handled with in the UK's tax and bank system what does this mean in terms of the visa I'd need and how long would it allow me to stay?

The ideal situation is being able to go out there, find an apartment for six months (rather then live outside of hostels or hotels) then move to another town for a while before heading back to the UK once my time has run out. I'm a while off being able to make a go at this dream but when I have the resources to go I want to know what I'm doing!

Hope you can advise me, it would be very much appreciated :)

Best Regards,

Can anyone shed any light on any of this or perhaps suggest a viable angle?
