H-3: Nonimmigrant Trainee or Special Education Exchange Visitor
You can remain in the U.S. for up to two (2) years on an H-3 visa, to receive training that is not available in your home country, except for physician level medical training.
Here are the requirements for the H-3 Nonimmigrant Trainee category:
- The training is one that is not available in their home country
- Applicable fields of study include agriculture, commerce, communications, finance, government, transportation, and medical student or nurse level training (graduate level / physician level training does not qualify)
- An employer invites you to receive the training in the U.S. and filed Form I-129 "Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker" on your behalf
- The employer who is petitioning must show that paid work will not be offered unless necessary as part of the training during your stay
The H-3 Special Education Exchange Visitor visa is for education professionals who work primarily with children with disabilities. These visa holders enter the U.S. to participate in practical training and build experience as educators working with students who have physical, mental, or emotional disabilities.
