Information for E-3 Employees
E-3 nonimmigrant classification is for Australian citizens who will be temporarily
employed in the U.S. in specialty occupations. UH is not required to submit a petition to the U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for a prospective employee who will enter the U.S. from abroad in E-3 status.
However, FSIS must obtain a certified Labor Condition Application (LCA)
from the U.S. Department of Labor before he/she can apply for an E-3
entry visa at a U.S. embassy/consulate.
UH can file E-3 petitions with USCIS
for changes of status, changes of employer, concurrent employment,
extensions, and amendments. Only employers can file E-3 petitions with USCIS; individuals may not
self-file E-3 petitions.
