How to Obtain an EB-3 Visa in Fort Lauderdale

Visas for professionals, skilled workers, and unskilled workers fall under the EB-3, third preference visa category. In order to get an EB-3 visa, you must provide proof that you have a permanent and full-time job offer from an employer in the United States. That employer must then file a labor certification with the U.S. Department of Labor to state that after an adequate recruiting process they could not find a qualified and available U.S. employee and must, therefore, hire a foreign employee. To be considered a professional worker you must be a teacher, lawyer, engineer, architect, physician, or another trained specialist with 5 years of experience or a minimum of a Bachelor's degree.

Jobs that can fall under the skilled worker's category are graphic designer, stonemason, chef, journalist, and construction first-line supervisors. You must have a minimum of 2 years of experience to have your EB-3 visa accepted under this category. An unskilled worker can be a janitor, housekeeper, nanny, farm worker, or any other worker in a similar job that is not a temporary or seasonal position. In order to obtain an EB-3 visa, your employer must file an I-140 form, with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services after a labor certification is approved. This form is a petition to allow an immigrant worker to work in the U.S. permanently. Along with this form, your employer must provide information regarding minimum wage determination, and proof that they are able to pay it by providing a federal income tax report, annual report, or an audited financial statement. The filing fee for an I-140 form is $580.
