Hi @Simat,


Thanks for your interest in joining Southwest Airlines as a Pilot! We are hiring over 600 pilots this year and we are currently hiring pilots with foreign experience. However, we do not provide employment visa sponsorship for these positions. Applicants must be currently authorized to work in the United States on a full-time basis. Your experience does show that you meet our flight time requirements.  If you meet all of the basic qualifications, please apply to our next hiring window in the Spring. Don’t forget to ensure your Pilot Credentials profile is accurate and up to date. Best of luck!
