Employment Based Immigration Third Preference (EB-3)
EB-3 is an employment based permanent resident Immigration visa of United States of America. The category has been
designed to target overseas personnel whose services are considered essential for the domestic economy or employers
are not able to locate people with appropriate skills in the local skills bank. The applicants intending to shift to this
country through EB-3 program need compulsorily a sponsorship from a US based employer and need to go through
PERM process before applying for the green card.
Many people choose to work temporarily in the U.S. through nonimmigrant visas, but others want to make this country
their permanent home. Immigrant visas, or green cards, allow for these foreign nationals to live and work in the U.S. for
10 years at a time. One of the more common types of green cards that people seek is the EB-3 green card due to its
relatively low requirements. However, this also makes it a popular green card process, which can impact the time it
takes to obtain one.
