About the E-3 Visa
In 2005, a new US visa category–the E-3–was created exclusively for Australian professionals. The US government authorized 10,500 E-3 visas to be issued annually, but recent statistics show that fewer than 9,000 are issued each year. The E-3 is popular with Australian professionals seeking to live and work in the US temporarily because the visa is issued for two years but is infinitely renewable.
Can I apply for an E-3 visa without using an immigration lawyer?
Immigration law is complicated. One mistake can result in costly delays, denials, and appeals. If you are applying for an E-3 visa, you have a responsibility to your company, yourself, and your family to ensure your visa application goes as smoothly as possible. Your E-3 visa is important to many people. Now is not the time to cut corners.
Time and again, clients come to us with expensive, difficult visa problems that could have been avoided if they had used an experienced, knowledgeable immigration lawyer from the beginning. It may seem like a good idea to save money by doing your visa yourself, but in our experience, the risks far outweigh the benefits.
