We have been in your shoes. We're here to help you with an E-3 visa.

E-3 Visa: Australians

The E-3 visa was created specifically for Australian nationals who will perform "professional" work in the United States. Generally, you must hold at least a bachelors degree and work in a "specialty occupation." If you are an Australian national and wish to start a business in the United States, you should consider applying under the E-2 Treaty program instead.

Like any other visa application, the process for obtaining an E-3 visa can be complex and a bit confusing. At Yekrangi & Associates, our Orange County immigration lawyer can guide you through the process, and will work to help you achieve your immigration goals when you hire our firm.

Who is a Professional under the E-3 Visa?

An Australian citizen seeking an E-3 visa should generally hold at least a bachelor’s degree that is related to the work he or she intends to perform in the United States. If you do not have a bachelor’s degree, you may still hold the "equivalent" of a bachelor’s degree through professional experience. In an initial consultation, our Orange county immigration attorney can help you determine if you qualify for this program.

How long is an E-3 visa valid for?

Technically, an E-3 visa is valid for a maximum of 24 months. However, this can usually be renewed, meaning that these visas can theoretically be extended indefinitely.

How do I apply for an E-3 Visa?

Australian nationals can apply at a U.S. consulate abroad or can request a change of status if already in the United States. An experienced Orange County immigration lawyer can assist you in this process.

What Documents Do I need for an E-3 Visa?

The E-3 visa requires the following documentation, in addition to the visa application:

  • Evidence of professional qualifications
  • Copy of an approved labor conditions application
  • Evidence that the applicant's stay is "temporary"
  • Employer's support statement
