Eligibility Requirements for EB-3 Visas

To qualify for an EB-3, you must:

  • Have labor certification
  • Have a permanent, full-time job offer
  • Be able to demonstrate that you will be performing work for which a qualified U.S. worker is not available

The EB-3 preference category requires that your employer must first obtain Labor Certification (PERM) from the Department of Labor. Moreover, after receiving labor certification, your employer (the petitioner) must file for an immigrant petition. Your employer will have to prove that they can pay your wage as of your visa priority date. To do so, they can use an annual report, a federal income tax return, or an audited financial statement.

You may file for adjustment of status or proceed with consular processing when your visa becomes numerically available. Unfortunately, because of backlogs, you may have to wait for many years for your visa to become available. Skilled workers from countries like India, Philippines, and Mexico may have to wait even longer. Spouses and unmarried children under 21 years of age are qualified to obtain green cards if accompanying the main beneficiary.
