Under the United States Immigration Laws, Eb-3 is referred to as a third preference, which is an Employment-based Immigrant Visa (Green Card or Permanent Residency Status) category.
This type of visa is reserved for “Professionals” and “Skilled Workers” or “Other Workers.”
United States Citizenship and Immigration (USCIS) defines “Skilled workers” as People whose job requires a minimum of 2 years training or work experience, not of a temporary or seasonal nature.”
A Professional, on the other hand, is defined as a person, whose job requires at least a U.S. Bachelor’s Degree or a foreign equivalent. The professional must be “a member of the profession.”
The term “other workers” is referred to a subcategory of people working in unskilled type work that requires less than 2 years training or experience, in a job that is not considered temporary or seasonal.
Of course, in addition to the above, it must be shown that there is not a qualified worker available in the United States to do the job. The applicant, generally, must apply for a labor certification through the Department of Labor and have a permanent full-time job.
