    Can you get a work visa for playing online poker

    Does anybody know if u can get a work visa for playing online poker in the UK (or other European countries)? I doubt its possible but dont know how to get a visa to be able to stay there for more then 6 months. Any help would be great.

    I have had Issues with credit cards in Europe, so much so that I stopped using them. St Anton one of the largest ski areas in Austria accepts only cash, for online poker I will strictly deposit and withdraw with a bank account never a problem, hope that helps, this is mostly Eastern Europe mind you.
    All my credit cards are busness cards as well, I would try opening a bank account if you can. Good luck!

    I misunderstood your question.

    "work VISA" in Europe yuck, you will be fighting eu citizens for low wages. Go to Croaita and lay on the beech for good price.
    I doubt any country thinks about online poker as some kind of work, or all the Americans players in Canada would be in trouble.

    Any mutt can get a busness visa so not really a sic brag, but............
