H-1B1 and E-3 Treaty Visas

H-1B1 and E-3 visa classifications are based on treaties with Chile and Singapore (H-1B1) and Australia (E-3) and are reserved for nationals of these three countries. Similar to H-1B classification, H-1B1 and E-3 visas are for professionals employed in “specialty occupations,” and sponsoring employers must file a Labor Condition Application (LCA) prior to submitting a visa application. However, these classifications offer many advantages to H-1B status: Applications may be made directly with a US embassy or consulate abroad without having to file a petition with the USCIS beforehand. These classifications are also not subject to the annual H-1B cap. Please contact our office should you have further questions on H-1B1 and E-3 visa classifications.
