E-3 Visas For Australian Nationals
The E-3 visa is a U.S. visa category established in 2005, specifically for allowing Australian citizens to work and live in the United States in a specialty occupation.
For Australians, the E-3 visa is a great alternative to the H-1B visa being a generally faster and cheaper option. Each E-3 visa is typically valid for a period of 2 years and unlike with other visas, can be renewed indefinitely in 2-year increments.
The spouse and children of an E-3 visa holder may accompany the visa holder to the U.S. and may be eligible to receive work authorisation. The spouse and children of the qualifying applicant do not need to be Australian citizens.
To be eligible for an E-3 visa, you must:
- Be an Australian Citizen and hold an Australian passport.
- Hold either a University Degree (or equivalent to a U.S. Bachelor's Degree) 12 years of relevant work experience.
- Have a job offer in the U.S. in a specialty occupation that meets a skill level criteria.
To qualify as an employer for an E-3 visa, sponsors must:
- Pay the employee on a U.S. payroll.
- Pay the employee at or above the prevailing wage based on the specialty occupation and location of employment.
- File a Labor Condition Application (LCA) with the Department of Labor (DOL) to prove the salary is at or above the market rate.

Client Testimonials for our E-3 Visa Services
Katherine HosieI'm a raving fan of Worldwide Migration Partners and have been since 2013 when I was first referred to Melissa Vincenty. Since then Melissa and her team, including Kim and Jamie, have helped me obtain my E3 visa to work in the US in 2013, and then with E3 renewals in 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2021. Everyone I've worked with on the team is smart, thorough, personable, and I always feel that they all actually care about my outcome. I have recommended Worldwide Migration Partners to so many people and will continue to do so. You will be in very safe hands.
We had an excellent and highly professional experience with Worldwide Migration Partners, who were able to get me an expedited visa to allow me to move to the USA to be with my husband. Our main contact, Jeremy, was always available when we needed and was very thorough in ensuring we were doing the

I had a fantastic experience with Worldwide Migration Partners, I spoke to an extremely helpful lady named Susan Lowick who quickly pointed me in the right direction and my issue was solved. For months I had tried to figure out the correct path, I wish I had called earlier.
I highly Worldwide Migration Partners. Melissa, Kim, Jamie and Kelly have been great through each of my visa applications. They answer every question and never gave me lawyer talk just great personal service. Best of all they follow up every time and listen to any concerns I have. I would not trust anyone else with something as important as my visa.

The team at Worldwide Migration is beyond fabulous. This is my second visa application using their services. I have worked with Melissa, Jamie and Mark. They are thorough, communicative and give such personal service; in what is quite a significant decision and step in a person's or family's life. I would absolutely recommend them and will most certainly be retaining their services for my next application.
Many will tell you that you don't need a lawyer for an E3. It's straight forward, all the documents are online etc. However, from experience, I have seen individuals rejected for missing documents, misfiling of information and overall lack of preparation. So my advice is to definitely hire a lawyer to ease your anxiety and ensure the process runs smoothly. That is where WMP comes in. They are professionals who meet tight deadlines. They are incredibly detailed orientated and you a play-by-play on what you need to do. Once you hire them, all you really need to do is show up. The best part? They're incredibly personable and check in on you to ensure everything runs smoothly. I highly recommend WMP especially Mark and Jamie.
