Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The following answers are for informational purposes only and should not be considered legal advice. You should consult a licensed U.S. immigration lawyer to get specific advice for your situation prior to making decisions.
Can I qualify for an E-3 Visa without a 4-yr degree?
Yes. An E-3 Visa requires an applicant to have a 4-yr bachelor’s degree, or equivalent work experience, or a combination of both. This generally translates to 3 years of work experience for every 1 year of tertiary study. So, an applicant without any tertiary education would require a minimum of 12 years of work experience in the same career field they are applying to work in.
Does an E-3 Visa require an employer to sponsor me?
No, it only requires an employer to formally offer you a job. The job should require a bachelor’s degree or equivalent work experience, and the salary needs to meet or exceed the prevailing wage.
Can any U.S. company hire me for an E-3 Visa?
Yes, as long as they are a legitimate trading entity/business.
How long does it take to get an E-3 Visa?
Comparatively speaking, the E-3 Visa is the fastest U.S. work visa to obtain. It generally takes David Immigration Law less than 2 weeks to prepare an E-3 Visa application. Overall processing time depends on whether you are applying at a consular or embassy location, or filing internally within the U.S, and can range from a few weeks to a few months.
Who can be a financial sponsor for an I-130 family-based Green Card application?
Any U.S. citizen or permanent resident living or domiciled in the U.S. who earns U.S. income that meets or exceeds the U.S. poverty guidelines or equivalent through U.S. assets.
How long do I have to marry my U.S. fiancé after I enter the U.S. on a K-1 Visa?
You will have 90 days to marry your U.S. citizen petitioner and file to Adjust Status to become a U.S. permanent resident.
How long do I have to enter the U.S. on my K-1 or Immigrant Visa?
You can enter the U.S. at any point in time as long as your visa is valid.
How long does it take to get a K-1 Visa?

How long does it take to get an I-130 and Immigrant Visa approved?
Processing times for I-130 petitions and Immigrant Visas are in flux and always subject to change. In general, it takes USCIS approximately 12 months to process the I-130 application.
