The EB-3 Other Worker visa is a permanent work visa in the United States of America and is a fantastic way of obtaining your Green Card. Your Green Card is a document that allows you to live and work permanently in the United States of America.
The EB-3 Visa (Other Worker) sub-category does not require any specific skills, qualifications or experience on your part to be granted the visa to work in America. The purpose of this specific visa category is to bring in immigrants to fulfill a shortage of workers in the USA for a number of different job types (see the below FAQs).
The only requirements and conditions for the EB-3 Other Worker Visa is that you are capable of physically working a regular job in America, full time for 12 months. After this period, you can seek work elsewhere and you keep your Green Card permanently.
This is a non-immigrant visa where you, your spouse and any children under the age of 21 years old will receive a US Green Card to immigrate to America as part of the same application packet. Our US employers will sponsor your visa application so you can work permanently in the US job.
These positions do not have requirements for skills or qualifications, which means that they are an excellent way to enter the USA for those without college or university degrees.
We work with large employers throughout America who have 100’s of US job vacancies and they are willing to sponsor for the EB-3 Visa. Our American partners prepare the Green Card application and we will co-ordinate the paperwork with you and also prepare you for interviews with employers and the US embassy.
Your spouse can work for the same American employer as you or they may work elsewhere in the States, or choose to study, start a business or even enrol on training. Your children under 21 years old can also do the same.
The EB-3 Visa Other Worker sub-category is also a great solution for unmarried couples or same-sex couples to migrate to the States. Under US Law an unmarried partner cannot sponsor their partner, but we have found the EB-3 Other Worker visa very popular with unmarried couples wishing to migrate to the US, or a migrant wanting to join an American partner in the United States, but the couple do not have plans to marry.
The EB-3 Other Worker visa proves popular with our clients for a number of reasons, including those with:
- Children over 21 years old
- All other relatives

US EB-3 Other Worker Visa FAQ:
Does the USA really have a shortage of workers?
According to America’s own Department of Labor (DOL), half of the jobs created in the next five years inside the country will require no more than a high school education. However, currently only 10% of men pursue unskilled work rather than attending college. This has left MILLIONS OF VACANT JOBS. Therefore foreign workers like you are required to fill the jobs shortages inside the USA, and currently 50% of all the new jobs created in the last decade were filled by foreign-born workers. You can also take a look at this CNN article for even more information!
What is a “Green Card”?
The US Green Card makes you a Lawful Permanent Resident which gives you the permission to live and work in the USA permanently. Remember your spouse and children will get their own Green Card too. You can apply for US citizenship 5-6 years after obtaining your Green Card providing you have abided by the prevailing conditions.
How much will I be paid in the United States?
Pay will be dependant upon your specific job and location, and you will be given these details (and more) after you have been spoken to the American employers. But according to immigration rules (set forth by the US Government) you will be paid the prevailing wage. This means you will be compensated fairly and cannot be paid a lower wage than US workers when working your job in the USA.
Can you tell me more about this opportunity?
These visas were backlogged (retrogressed) for many years but now the EB-3 Other Worker visa numbers are current and available. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get an American Green Card in a much easier method than having a degree or investing $1m in a US business.
Can I choose the job and location?
We will try our best to offer you the job in your preferred location when working in America, but our US employers cannot guarantee that. The EB-3 jobs are unskilled, and therefore not stressful – you won’t be taking the job home with you and are NOT expected to work out of contracted hours. Remember this is your opportunity to become a Lawful Permanent Resident in the USA. This is a wonderful chance to grab a new life for you and your family.
Can you tell me more about the US job I’d be working in?
You are obliged to work in America for the employer sponsoring you full time (40 hours a week) for a period of just 12 months. We can email or discuss these job opportunities over the phone. These are unskilled jobs which anyone can do. You will be working for a large employer who has thousands of US jobs available.
How long will it take to process the application?
The process length is dependent on the US government agencies involved including the Embassy that will interview you. It is the decision of these agencies to grant the EB-3 visa NOT OURS.
