The EB-3 Visa is a category of immigrant employment visa in the United States that provides foreign workers with the opportunity to obtain a Green Card, allowing them to reside permanently in the United States. This visa is aimed at workers in a variety of occupations, from skilled professionals to unskilled laborers. The EB-3 Visa is divided into three subcategories: skilled workers, professionals with university degrees, and unskilled workers. It is a valuable option for those seeking employment opportunities in the United States and wishing to establish permanent residency in the country, whether as highly skilled professionals or in essential job roles.

What are the requirements for the EB-3 program?

The requirements for this visa are relatively straightforward and easy to meet, as the United States currently faces a labor shortage, leading companies to turn to foreign employees. The basic requirements are as follows:

  • Have never entered the U.S. irregularly or without inspection.
  • Have never been in the U.S. illegally or out of status.
  • Be 18 years of age or older.
  • Be willing to work for a minimum of 1 year with a U.S. company.
  • Have a positive attitude towards work and be willing to learn English.
  • Have the financial means to carry out the process.

Why could I be denied admissibility or disqualified?

  • You may be denied admissibility or disqualified if you have a communicable disease such as tuberculosis, syphilis, leprosy, among others.
  • You do not have the required vaccinations for preventable diseases.
  • You have a criminal record with legal issues.
  • You are involved in drug trafficking and/or money laundering.
  • You are involved in prostitution and/or human trafficking.
  • You are involved in terrorist activities and/or espionage.
  • You become a public charge for the government's subsidies in the U.S.
  • You falsify any type of document for the visa and/or labor certification process.

How long does the process take - Timelines?

The estimated processing time for the entire sponsorship-based EB-3 residence process is 24 to 36 months. The process can be expedited to an average of 18 to 24 months if you pay $2,500 USD directly to immigration (USCIS) during phase 2.
