Did you know that E-3 visa holders can pursue green cards under the right circumstances? The E-3 visa, exclusive to Australian nationals seeking to work in a specialty occupation, is a nonimmigrant visa that does not tolerate immigrant intent.
E-3 visa and nonimmigrant intent
Immigrant intent is the present or current intent to immediately apply for or pursue a green card in the United States or to carry on activity as if one were a green card holder of the US. Unlike an H-1B visa or L-1 visa, an E-3 visa holder cannot have both nonimmigrant intent and immigrant intent (holding both of these intents simultaneously is referred to as “dual intent”).
Due to the fact that the E-3 visa does not tolerate immigrant intent or dual intent, many E-3 individuals have the mistaken belief that they cannot pursue a green card while on an E-3 visa.
The fact is an E-3 visa holder can pursue a green card under the right circumstances.
