H-1B1 & E-3
The H-1B visa is available to foreign nationals from any country. Similar visa types are specifically allocated for individuals from Australia (E-3) as well as Singapore and Chile (H-1B1). While there are numerical limits on the availability of each visa category, the numerical limits have never been met and thus the E-3 and H-1B1 visas are available year round.
Sponsored foreign nationals can file for E-3 and H-1B1 status directly at a US consulate or Embassy in their countries of residence.
For more information on the qualifications for E-3 and H-1B1 status please see our H-1B information page.
