I have about 5000 hrs on fixed wing (jets & props) single engine,
rotary (single and multi) I flew for a foreign Air Force. I was a
instructor and have close to 800 hrs instructing on fixed and
rotary. I Migrated to the US about 12 years ago. Now that I am well
settled I wanted to do fly again.

Will my flying hours be given any weightage if I need to do my ppl,
Cpl and Instructor ratings.

Any insight would be highy appreciated.

Kind regards,

You flying hours are your flying hours. To get your U.S. ratings you will probably have to take a couple of knowledge tests (trivial) and a couple of checkrides (should be easy with your experience). After paying for many 10-20 hours of aircraft rental you should be fully licensed and qualified to instruct here in the U.S.
