Skilled workers and professionals may qualify for an EB-3 visa to work in the United States and obtain permanent residency after receiving a job offer from a U.S. company. Cape Immigration Law Group, PLLC, helps immigrants seeking to live in the Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., areas with EB-3 visas.
Qualifying for an EB-3 Visa
You may seek an employment-based EB-3 immigrant visa if you fall into one of these categories:
- EB-3(a) if you hold a U.S. bachelor's degree or a foreign equivalent degree, and have a job offer with a U.S. company
- EB-3(b) if you are a skilled worker for a position that requires at least two years of training or experience and have a job offer from a U.S. company
- EB-3(c) if you are an unskilled worker seeking to work in the U.S. in a position that requires less than two years training or experience and have a job offer from a U.S. company
Our law firm can advise you about the different categories of the EB-3 visa and determine your eligibility.
The Employer's Role in the EB-3 Visa Process
In order for you to obtain an EB-3 visa, your employer must submit an application for Permanent Employment Certification (PERM) to the Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration. Upon approval of the certification request, your employer must present an immigrant petition to the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) together with supporting documentation. After approval of this petition, and when your visa is current, you may apply for adjustment of status to obtain a green card if you are in the U.S., or complete immigrant visa processing at the U.S. Consulate in your country.
An experienced Alexandria EB-3 visa lawyer can help ensure that all processes and details are completed correctly.
Avoid Visa Delays
To prevent delays when you apply for an EB-3 visa, ask a qualified immigration attorney for help with these and other details:
- Make sure your PERM application submitted to the Department of Labor is completed thoroughly and accurately.
- Verify that you meet all of the education and experience requirements stated in the PERM application.
- Be sure to meet all recruitment deadlines required when submitting a PERM application.
Some applicants miss out on the EB-3 visa because they fail to verify these essential elements of the application. Our experienced immigration lawyer at Cape Immigration Law Group can help ensure that your EB-3 visa and green card applications are complete and that you meet the PERM requirements. Once your application is approved, and you are issued your visa, you will be able to work in the U.S. and travel freely.
