Third Preference Employment Based Immigration EB3 (Green Card) is available for the following individuals:
Advantage in Application Process
The Second Preference Employment Based is allotted about 40,000 annual visas plus any unused visas in the first two employment based preferences. Labor Certification (PERM) and a specific job offer are required in the Third Preference Employment Based category. In addition after receiving Labor Certification, the Petitioner (Employer) must file for an Immigrant Petition. Individuals are allowed to file for adjustment of status or proceed with consular processing when their visas become numerically available. Unfortunately due to significant backlogs, individuals in this preference category must typically wait many years for their visas to become available. The immediate un-availability of this category will likely to continue for individuals.
Spouse and children (under 21 and not married) are eligible to obtain green cards as a derivatives if accompanying the main beneficiary.
