Foreign Pilots

I've had a scan through the forum and cannot find any information relating to this subject.

Which airlines worldwide allow for foreign (British) experienced pilots to apply for positions within there company? I have looked at a lot of the big carriers around the world and most of them say you need to be a citizen within that country.

Are Cathay Pacific and Etihad the only ones?

Any info would be appreciated.

Yes our airlines are full of Aussies and Kiwis because of the UK's ridiculous immigration and labour laws. Try getting a job down under? As a Brit hardly a chance however aviation is there anyway which is why they are all in the UK and middle east. Oztranauts!

Gunman returns,
Would these be the ridiculous laws allowing british and EU passport holders to work in GB/EU? I assure you all these colonials would hold an EU passport. About 40 percent of Aussies have a second passport.

In the last 3 years in oz I have flown with Brits, kiwis, South Africans, Germans, French and Colombians. Australia isn't as closed as you think.
