E-3 Visas

If you are a citizen of Australia and want to live and work in the United States, you can apply for the E3 visa. Originally introduced into the U.S. Immigration system in 2005, the E3 visa provides a wonderful opportunity to business professionals and people of Australia to make the most out of brighter prospects available in the U.S. as a part of AUSFTA (the Australia-United States Free Trade Agreement).

In order to qualify for an E3 visa, you must meet the following requirements:

  • You must be an Australian citizen;
  • You must be in possession of a legitimate offer of employment in the U.S;
  • You must fill a position that qualifies as a specialty occupation;
  • You must possess the required academic qualifications; and
  • You must assure your stay in the United States will be temporary.
