He was a student a few years ago and worked at his college then. After he graduated he returned to his country for a while but now he is coming back to the US and wants to work. Basically we want to know if he can work with this card. The only visa he currently holds is a tourist visa. If he cannot, what must be done in order to get him permission to legally work? That's all? Just needs to get permission then he is good to go? Also if anyone knows which form he needs to fill out that would be helpful. From what I can gather, he needs the I-765 application... No, a work visa is impossible to get. A company needs to pay thousands to sponsor you plus you have to wait like 6 months to get it.

He cannot work legally with a tourist visa, and there's no basis of eligibility for him to file an I-765 for a work permit. He would either need to be sponsored by a job for a work visa or a green card, or marry to a US citizen.

He needs to get a work visa, not a tourist visa. DHS will not give their authorization unless he has a work visa. Working is strictly forbidden if you are on a tourist visa. Working would get you deported.

He's a tourist and cannot work. If a work visa is "impossible to get" (despite the fact that hundreds of thousands get them every year) then working legally is also impossible.
