E-3, Australian Specialty Visas

E-3 visas are available to Australian nationals who are solely coming to the U.S. to perform services in specialty occupations. A specialty occupation is an occupation that requires theoretical and practical application of highly specialized knowledge and the attainment of a bachelor’s or higher degree in the specialty, or its equivalent.

To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate that they:

  • Are an Australian national
  • Have a legitimate employment offer in the U.S.
  • Possess the necessary academic or qualifying credentials
  • Will fill a qualifying specialty occupation

Australian nationals can apply for an E-3 visa while abroad or within the U.S. An E-3 classification allows for a two-year period of stay, with up to two years per extension and no maximum number of extensions (with some exceptions). If approved for an E-3 classification, an applicant’s spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21 are entitled to dependent E-3 classification. Additionally, their spouses, but not children, are entitled to apply for work authorization.

If you think you may qualify for an E-3 visa or have any questions regarding an E-3 visa please do not hesitate to contact our Office.
