Please explain E3 Visa Process?

The E-3 classification applies only to nationals of Australia. You must be coming to the United States solely to perform services in a specialty occupation. The specialty occupation requires theoretical and practical application of a body of knowledge in professional fields and at least the attainment of a bachelor's degree, or its equivalent, as a minimum for entry into the occupation in the United States.

To qualify for an E-3 visa, you must demonstrate that you:

  • Are a national of Australia
  • Have a legitimate offer of employment in the United States
  • Possess the necessary academic or other qualifying credentials
  • Will fill a position that qualifies as a specialty occupation

Applying for an E-3 Visa from Within the United States

The Form I-129, Petition for Non-immigrant Worker is used to apply for a change of status to obtain E-3 nonimmigrant temporary worker classification.

Supporting Documents

  • A Labor Condition Application (LCA)
  • Academic or other credentials demonstrating qualifications for the position
  • Job offer letter or other documentation from the employer establishing that you will be engaged in a specialty occupation and that you will be paid the higher of the actual or prevailing wage
  • If required, before you may commence employment in the specialty occupation, you must have the necessary license or other official permission to practice in the specialty occupation

Applying for a Visa With a U.S. Embassy or Consulate

We will send you necessary documents including a job offer letter, once employment is offered by our Company. You are required to apply for an E3 Visa at a US Consulate abroad. First time applicants may be required to apply in Australia as other Consulate may not be familiar with adjudication of E3 Visas. However, few candidate applied at a US Consulate in Canada and secured a visa.

Period of Stay/Extension of Stay

Initial Period of Stay Extension of Stay
2 years Up to 2 years per extension; no maximum number of extensions, with some exceptions.

Spouses and Family of E-3 Visa Holders

Your spouse and unmarried children under 21 years of age are entitled to the same E-3 classification. Your spouse is entitled to work authorization, but not your children. To apply for work authorization as a spouse of an E-3 non-immigrant, your spouse would file a Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization.

Upon acceptance of Employment; we will initiate an LCA (Labor Condition Application) with the USDOL for the actual location of work. The LCA process takes 7 (Seven) days, during this period we obtain documents from you to initiate an E3 Visa Petition at a US Consulate. We will send the completed E3 Visa Petition package to you, immediately upon approval of LCA via over-night delivery.

Port of Entry or Visa Stamping at Consulates: Our experience and proper documentation ensures you secure a proper port of entry or Visa stamping upon Employment confirmation. Our Immigration manager will work with you in-order to facilitate a smoother visa process.

When can I file for an E-3?

You may apply for an E-3 at a consulate, approval from USCIS is not required. You would need to present an LCA and the other documents. This would mean that E-3 applicants can secure visas within days of applying and be in the US quickly.

Is the E-3 a dual intent visa?

They are not dual intent in the sense of H-1Bs and L-1s, but they do not have a foreign residence requirement. Applicants need to attest that they intend to depart when their status terminates. A statement is usually enough unless they have clear intentions showing the opposite. But there is case law stating that the expression of a desire to remain in the US permanently as opposed to intending to remain even if legally not permitted, is permissible on an E visa. In other words, wanting to remain permanently is okay as long as one is willing to leave if this is not permitted by law.
