What is the EB-3 Visa Program?
The EB-3 Visa Program is for employers who have year-round operations and anticipate a shortage of qualified U.S. workers for permanent, nonseasonal, full-time positions.
Many employers are facing a chronic shortage of unskilled workers.
In many cases, it is forcing the closing of locations and/or the reduction of hours.
This program allows U.S. employers to file employment-based green cards for prospective employees.
The EB-3 program was established with the Immigration and Nationalization Act of 1990.
These employment-based visas are permanent, and they are designed to assist U.S. businesses to recruit and retain permanent foreign national workers.
The EB-3 Visa provides your employee with permanent resident status which is good for 10 years and is renewable.
All EB-3 visas include the option for the applicants to bring his or her spouse and dependent children under 21.
How Long Does the EB-3 Visa Program Take?
The first workers will take 18-24 months to arrive.
Subsequent workers will take 11-15 months to arrive.
As our client, our team will work with you to ensure that you always have a steady, predictable flow of employees, allowing you to maintain and grow your business.
How Much Does the EB-3 Program Cost?
The employer’s financial obligation is to pay for the PERM advertising fee.
The regulations require that the position be advertised to U.S. Workers.
The advertising fee ranges from $400 to $1,200. This is a flat fee per job profile regardless of how many workers you are requesting for that position.
