Definition of Skilled Workers and Other Workers

In the EB3 employment-based green card process, “skilled workers” are those who are able to perform skilled labor that requires at least two years of training or experience, is not seasonal or temporary, and for which there are not enough other qualified workers in the U.S.


In addition, “other workers” are those who are able to perform unskilled labor that is not seasonal or temporary, requires fewer than two years of training, for which there are not enough qualified workers in the U.S.

Steps in the EB3 Process

In order for an applicant to obtain permanent residency through the EB3 visa process, the employers must be willing to sponsor her or him through Labor Certification / PERM. Following the filing of the labor certification application with the U.S. Department of Labor, the next step is an immigrant petition, and then an adjustment of status application.
