how to get B737NG typed in FAA CPL from ICAO CPL

I am an FAA CPL + ME holder. After completion of the training I went back home and I converted my license. So now I have Georgian ICAO license as well. One year later I got hired by a company and I got type rated on the Boeing 737 NG (+ basic training) in Vilnius, Lithuania. Now I have my 200 training hours, the B737 sim time and just a few hours flown on the airplane.
I would like to have the B737 type rating in the FAA license as well. So could You please tell me the easiest way to get it done.
I greatly appreciate your help!

I am also interested in converting my license to FAA ATP.

I have a green card. I am eligible to work in the USA

I know all the procedure what should I follow but I want to avoid paying 12-14K for the conversion. Most of the regionals provide free ATP/CTP course and type rating so that an FAA CPL holder pays nothing for the process. I am actually in the same position as them. I have 2500 hours Boeing 737 flying experience. I think I can be a good match for the regionals.

Do you know any company guys which can help me with my case? I tried to apply some regionals but they declined my application.

Thank you.

There is no direct transfer of type ratings to FAA certificates unless it is from a Canadian license or you are doing the 61.75 private "based on" certificate. You will have to complete a FAA part 142 training center's ground school and simulator program. How long the training program is (and how much it costs) depends on how the training center counts your experience to meet their requirements.

What happens if you donít have a current IR and are wanting to do the ATP-CTP training? Does the simulator component/check ride get you an FAA IR?

The 10 hours of ATP-CTP simulator time are just to reinforce the ideas covered in the classroom. There's 4 hours of intro to FMS, low vis taxiing, upset recovery and stall training. It's not a checkride and does not get you anything except the qualification to take the ATM written test.

MD83FO, the way is the same, as if you didn’t have FAA CPL ME.
You should pass ATP-CPT, ATP M written, then pass your ATP check-ride. Check-ride could be either on little twin, or on A320 but on the last you will have to pass Reduced TR.

Best regards,

Iurii is correct. The other way to look at it is that it is the same procedure as if you did not have your ICAO ATP. Complete the CTP class, pass the written test and pass the checkride. There is no short cut to a FAA ATP.
