The EB-3 visa serves as a crucial solution for those wishing to legally immigrate and settle in the United States, especially for unskilled workers. This employment-based visa is unique in leading to permanent residency, including for the applicant’s immediate family (spouse and unmarried children under 21).
How Does It Work?
The key to applying for the EB-3 visa is securing a full-time job offer from a U.S. employer. This job must be certified by the Department of Labor through a labor certification.
– Prove the ability to pay the offered salary, typically through federal tax returns or audited financial statements.
– Verify the physical address of the company, usually with a service receipt.
Who Can Apply?
The EB-3 visa is open to anyone, regardless of experience or education, depending on the employer’s needs at the time of job offer preparation.
It is divided into two phases:
1. Obtaining labor certification from the Department of Labor.
2. Filing with the Department of Immigration.
The total process time can range from 15 to 18 months, depending on visa availability.
To Get Started:
You will need your passport, visa (if applicable), and to make the initial payment for the process.
This visa is a valuable option for those seeking a legal way to immigrate and establish themselves in the United States, offering a clear path to permanent residency.
