EB-3—Third Employment-Based Preference for Other Workers (Unskilled Workers)

Basic Requirements:

Unskilled workers may apply for the third employment-based preference for the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services “other workers” category. To be eligible, applicants must be capable of performing unskilled labor, which is generally defined as any labor requiring less than two years of experience or training to perform. Visa availability for unskilled workers is significantly lower than for other categories.

Application Process:

Employers must first secure labor certification from the Department of Labor before anything else may be done. As such, there must already be a specific job offer that has been extended to any potential EB-3 applicant. Once employers (the petitioner) that have obtained labor certification make a foreign hire, they must then file for an Immigrant Petition with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Before the applicant can proceed with consular processing or file for an adjustment of status, his or her visa must have already become numerically available. Unfortunately, there is a significant backlog of applications, and applicants often wait years for their visa to become numerically available. In fact, unskilled workers are subject to the longest wait times, as there is often a minimum wait time of nine years. People from China, Mexico, India, and the Philippines often wait much longer. Applicants should expect this category to continue to be immediately unavailable.

Family Members:

The children and spouse of the primary beneficiary may enter and remain in the United States with a derivative status of this preference category. However, children must be unmarried and under the age of 21 to be considered eligible for the derivative EB-3 status.

Fees:

The Austin immigration attorneys at the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, will charge the following in attorney’s fees for a typical application filed from within the United States at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) (please take a moment to read through this disclaimer), in addition to the filing fees that are currently charged by the USCIS:

Step 1—Labor Certification:

  • $3,000 to cover attorney’s fees
  • The cost to advertise this position (this is variable)

Step 2—Permanent Residency Petition:

  • $3,000 to cover attorney’s fees for the main beneficiary
  • $700 to cover the filing fee for the main petition with the USCIS

Step 3—Adjustment of Status:

  • $2,000 to cover attorney’s fees for the main beneficiary (including his or her immediate family)
  • $1,225 USCIS fee each person, (or $750 for each person under the age of 14)
