I’m currently on an E3 and my company is down with putting me in for the H1B lottery every year, I’m interested because it provides a path to immigration whereas an E3 is not dual intent.
That being said are there any downsides I’m missing? Is switching employees on a H1B more difficult? Travel?
- Dedicated visa for Australians, but not a dual intent immigration visa (no path to citizenship etc).
It’s easily granted and has an annual cap that’s never been hit. It’s tied to the employee but only requires the employer to file an LCA and the individual to file a DS-160 online and attend a consulate appointment (in Australia, though).
