Important E3 Visa Documents

e3 visa documents

Australian citizens looking to work in the United States may benefit from applying for an E3 visa, which provides an excellent path forward. It is vital that applicants understand how this process works as well as any associated documents.

Before applying for a visa, your employer must submit a Labor Condition Application (LCA) with the Department of Labor – this takes 10 business days and is completely free.

Form ETA 9035

Form ETA 9035, also known as the Labor Condition Application (LCA), is required by the Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration when U.S. employers seek professional H-1B, H-1B1 (Chile and Singapore), or E-3 (Australia) work visas for their employees. This document must attest to various conditions related to employee salaries/rates of pay as well as duration/location of employment and compliance with any relevant worker protection laws. Employers should notify employee bargaining representatives as well as post copies in two places at their workplace.

Form I-129

Employers seeking nonimmigrant worker visas from US Citizenship and Immigration Services must complete Form I-129 in order to apply. This lengthy and complex process often takes weeks or months; any incomplete information or missed fees could cause delays.

Employers can utilize this form to request changes in the status of existing workers or hire new ones. Applications must be filed no more than six months before starting the position, along with any required labor condition applications and documentation.

Dependent upon the category of visa, employers may be subject to paying a fraud prevention and detection fee that is non-refundable.

Form G-28

An immigrant or refugee seeking to apply for immigration status through USCIS must submit Form G-28 with them. This allows their attorney or accredited representative access to their immigration files and correspond with USCIS on their behalf. Only original copies will be accepted; scans or photocopies won’t be accepted by DHS.

If the client changes attorneys, a new form should be filed at once. Furthermore, applicants should inquire into consultation fees and charges prior to hiring an attorney or representative so as to make an informed decision about their representation.

Form DS-160

DS-160 forms require visa applicants to provide basic biographical, travel and employment history details in order to be considered for an appointment with USCIS. They can be completed electronically and submitted within 90 minutes; those physically incapable of filling them out themselves may ask someone else for assistance in this process.

Candidates are also expected to provide details about their social media presence by listing all “handles,” or user IDs they have used, and their email address. Any omissions or incorrect answers on this form could cause delays or rejection of an application; additionally, multiple languages versions are available so be sure to read and follow all instructions prior to answering questions on it.

Form DS-260

The DS-260 form is an essential element of US immigration processes, filled out online and sent directly to the National Visa Center (NVC). After reviewing your supporting documentation – either sent by email, mail or upload depending on which US consulate is handling your case – they will review their suitability with regards to processing your case.

The National Visa Center will review your documents, then inform you when it is time for an interview. During an interview, officials will go over your application in detail while asking you questions regarding family, work experience and ties to the US. It is vital that answers to these questions accurately; if unsure please seek legal advice immediately.

Form DS-230

DS-230, or the Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration form is essential when seeking permanent resident status in the US. Typically presented during consular processing.

This form involves making sworn affirmations statements regarding security matters. If any question does not apply to you, simply write “none” in its respective field.

Filling out this form accurately is critical in order to prevent problems later on. Giving inaccurate or false information could result in denial of visa by USCIS; should that happen, legal action may be taken against you by them.

Form DS-232

The form requires detailed personal information, as well as inquiries into your social media activity and prior arrests or convictions, with honest responses being essential to avoid disqualification. We strongly advise completing your entry form yourself rather than through an agent.

Review your completed document carefully to ensure it contains all of the essential details and is free of errors before signing and dating the form and sending it off to a US consulate for processing – then wait patiently until your visa arrives!

Form DS-240

The U.S. Department of State form DS-240 is used to document a child’s birth overseas to a U.S. parent or guardian and provides proof of citizenship; filing this within two years after its date of birth entitles it to similar privileges as those born within U.S. borders, such as passport or Social Security number applications. It has since replaced its predecessor Certificate of Birth Abroad (DS-1350), which has since been discontinued; downloading it can be found online from their website and filling it accurately will ensure it gets processed promptly and correctly.
