What is an EB-3 Visa?

The EB-3 visa, also known as the Employment-Based Third Preference visa, is a type of immigrant visa that allows foreign nationals to live and work permanently in the United States. It’s designed for skilled workers, professionals, and other workers whose skills are in demand in the U.S. labor market.

The EB-3 visa is divided into three subcategories

This category is for individuals with at least two years of experience or training in a skilled occupation. A skilled occupation requires at least two years of training or experience to perform. Examples include electricians, plumbers, and construction workers.

This category is for professionals who have a bachelor’s degree or foreign equivalent and whose job requires a bachelor’s degree as the minimum entry requirement. Examples include engineers, architects, and teachers.

This category is for unskilled workers who have less than two years of experience or training in an occupation that doesn’t require a high level of skill or education. Examples include housekeepers, laborers, and food service workers.

Key Requirements for Each Category

All Categories:

  • A permanent, full-time job offer from a U.S. employer.
  • A labor certification approved by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), demonstrating that there are no qualified U.S. workers available to fill the position.

EB-3A (Skilled Workers):

  • At least two years of experience or training in the skilled occupation.
  • Proof of ability to perform the skilled work.

EB-3B (Professionals):

  • A bachelor’s degree or foreign equivalent in the professional field.
  • Proof of the job’s minimum entry requirement of a bachelor’s degree.

EB-3C (Other Workers):

  • Ability to perform unskilled labor.
  • Proof that the job does not require more than two years of training or experience.

It’s important to note that the specific requirements and qualifications can vary depending on the specific occupation and the individual’s circumstances.

Eligibility Requirements for EB-3 Visas

To be eligible for any of the EB-3 visa categories, you must:

  • Have a Permanent Job Offer: A U.S. employer must offer you a permanent, full-time position in a qualifying occupation.
  • Obtain Labor Certification: Your employer must obtain a labor certification (PERM) from the Department of Labor (DOL). This proves there are no qualified U.S. workers available to fill the job.
  • Meet Minimum Requirements for Your Category: You must meet the specific requirements for your chosen EB-3 visa category.

Specific Requirements for Each EB-3 Visa Category

  1. EB-3A (Skilled Workers):
  • Work Experience/Training: You must have at least two years of experience or training in a skilled occupation. This experience must be relevant to the job offer.
  • Proof of Ability: You need to demonstrate your ability to perform the skilled work. This can be through work experience letters, educational transcripts, or certifications.
  • Skilled Occupation: The job must be classified as a skilled occupation, typically requiring at least two years of training or experience to perform.
  1. EB-3B (Professionals):
  • Bachelor’s Degree: You must have a bachelor’s degree or foreign equivalent in a relevant field.
  • Job Requirement: The job offer must require a bachelor’s degree as the minimum entry requirement.
  • Professional Occupation: The job must be classified as a professional occupation, generally requiring a high level of theoretical and practical knowledge.
  1. EB-3C (Other Workers):
  • Unskilled Labor: The job offer must be for unskilled labor, meaning it requires less than two years of training or experience to perform.
  • Ability to Perform: You must demonstrate your ability to perform the unskilled labor.

Important Considerations:

  • Priority Dates: EB-3 visa availability is based on a priority date system. Demand can exceed supply, leading to waiting times.
  • Documentation: You must provide supporting documents to prove your eligibility.
  • English Proficiency: Although not always mandatory, demonstrating English proficiency can be beneficial in the EB-3 process.

Won the polytical asylum! I recommend him! Виталий представлял мою семью по политич.убежищу, и с ним МЫ ВЫИГРАЛИ. Подготовку вела команда. Подготовку к основному суду вел сам Виталий, а также лично приезжал на финальное слушание. Мне понравилось, что договор был сразу на двух языках. Понравилось,что ребята своевременно отвечают на вопросы.

I contacted them because they were one of the people who took cases in Louisiana, and because they had very good reviews. My friend was in immigration. While he was there, they were in touch all the time and helped as best they could! They pulled my friend out from where many people cannot get out. Thanks to them for everything! Contact them.
