K-3 Australian Special Occupation Visa. E-3 Visa allows persons to enter the U.S. “solely to perform services in a specialty occupation in the United States if the alien is anational of the Commonwealth of Australia” and files a labor attestation under INA §212(t). It is limited to 10,500 per fiscal year. Although the E-3 has characteristics that are the same as H-1Bs or Fast Track H-1B1s, it is a separate visa with separate benefits and requirements. For example, E-3 spouses may work and E-3 applicants are not required to pay the special fees required of H-1Bs. A job offer in a “specialty occupation”, certified LCA and prevailing wage determination are required.
