EB-3 Green Card

The EB3 Visa is a Third Priority Worker visa available for skilled workers; professionals who hold a bachelor's degree and eventually other unskilled workers. To be eligible, you must hold a baccalaureate degree or at least 2 years of training or working experience.

The visa category is divided into three subcategories, each with its own specific requirements:

 

EB-3(A): Skilled Workers

EB-3(B): Professionals

EB-3(C): Other Workers

Benefits of the EB-3 Visa

 

The EB-3 visa offers several advantages, including:

 

The opportunity to live and work permanently in the United States

The ability to bring eligible family members (spouse and unmarried children under 21) to the U.S.

The possibility of eventual U.S. citizenship

Flexibility in changing employers, with certain limitations

The processing times for the EB-3 visa involve several stages, each with its own timeframe:

 

Form I-140 Processing Time: The average processing time for Form I-140, the Immigrant Petition for Alien Worker, currently averages 4 months, according to historic processing times data from USCIS. If you choose to use premium processing, you can expedite the I-140 petition, with a processing time of 15 calendar days.

Waiting for Visa Availability: Once the Form I-140 is approved, the applicant must wait for a visa number to become available. The wait time for visa availability varies based on the applicant’s country of origin and the demand for EB-3 visas from that country.

Form I-485 Processing Time (Adjustment of Status): If the applicant is already in the U.S. and eligible to adjust their status, the average processing time for Form I-485 for employment-based visa applications is 7.5 to 32.5 months. This timeframe can also be influenced by various factors.

Consular Processing: If the applicant is applying from outside the U.S., their case will be transferred to the National Visa Center (NVC), which will forward the application to the nearest U.S. Embassy or consulate. The scheduling of an interview and the subsequent wait time at this stage will depend on the specific embassy or consulate and the applicant’s location.
