US EB-3 VISA FOR PROFESSIONALS

 

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

 

“Professionals” are persons whose job requires at least a U.S. baccalaureate degree or a foreign equivalent and are a member of the professions

 

EVIDENCE

 

  • You must be able to demonstrate that you possess a U.S. baccalaureate degree or foreign degree equivalent, and that a baccalaureate degree is the normal requirement for entry into the occupation

  • You must be performing work for which qualified workers are not available in the United States

  • Education and experience may not be substituted for a baccalaureate degree

 

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF LABOR - LABOR CERTIFICATION


Third preference petitions must generally be accompanied by an approved, individual labor certification from the Department of Labor on Form ETA-9089.  In some cases, the petition may be submitted to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) with an uncertified ETA-9089 for consideration as Schedule A, Group I.

 

APPLICATION PROCESS


Your employer (petitioner) must file a Form I-140, Petition for Alien Worker. As part of the application process, your employer must be able to demonstrate an ability to pay the offered wage as of your visa priority date. Your employer may use an annual report, federal income tax return, or audited financial statement to demonstrate an ability to pay your wage.

 

FAMILY OF EB-3 VISA HOLDERS


Your spouse may be admitted to the United States in E34 (spouse of a “skilled worker” or “professional”) or EW4 (spouse of an “other worker”). During the process where you and your spouse are applying for permanent resident status (status as a green card holder), your spouse is eligible to file for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD).  Your minor children (under the age of 18) may be admitted as E35 (child of a “skilled worker” or “professional”) or EW5 (child of an “other worker”).
