Hi All, Johney and George have been at it again. God Bless em...:)) The E-3 is a new visa for Australian nationals to work in specialty occupations in the U.S. It has many advantages over the other types of working visas, including the ability for spouses of E-3 recipients to apply for work authorization. http://canberra.usembassy.gov/consular/visa-e3.html Who needs that GREEN CARD...NOT I!! Where there is a way......there is definetly will:))) Cheers

You didn't understand it right: From the website: [i]Question: I am a skilled tradesperson with qualifications and experience in plumbing/electrical work/carpentry for example. Do these kind of trades qualify as specialty occupations for the E-3 visa? Answer: Not generally, because a requirement of the E-3 visa is that the job in the U.S. requires a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in a specialty occupation. As very few trade positions require a degree, they are not appropriate for E-3 visa employment.[/i] [b]Pilot is not considered a specialty ouccupation, and doesn't require a bachelors degree. [/b]

I have spoken with the embassy in Australia, helicopter pilots pass :). You must also read that it is not just a bachelors degree....it can be something eqivelent. Basically...what i was told from the US consolate is that it is up to the officer processing your visa. Now it gets more interesting......he will also check the score of occupation, (demand), commercial pilots are a score of 100 out of 100.

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services offer temporary workers visa E-3 for Certain Specialty Occupation Professionals from Australia. According to the best online legal assistant for United States Immigration Services; following are the most important and basic eligibility and qualifying criteria for the applicants but it is highly advised to consult with an experienced US Immigration Attorney in order to identify the complete eligibility requirements and legalities involved in the entire application process.

Well Aussies and Kiwi's have all but screwed the industry here in Canada so good luck with these guys getting into your country. They will work for airtime and live in their cars. Not to mention they love bending equipment. If you hire one put a tattle tail box in the machine
