The E-3 visa is a United States visa exclusively for Australian nationals. Unlike other non-immigrant visas, the E-3 visa allows the visa holder to work in the United States in a specialty occupation without restrictions. Additionally, the application process is faster than with other non-immigrant visas and can be renewed indefinitely in two-year increments.
Moreover, Australian citizens applying for an E-3 visa are not subject to the 65,000 annual visa limit that applies to H-1B visas. Instead, a separate quota of 10,500 E-3 visas applies each year. Spouses and children of E-3 visa holders are not subject to the annual limit and need not be Australian nationals.
