Foreign nationals who want to come to Indiana to participate in specific types of training programs might be eligible for H-3 visas. These types of visas are designed for people who want to get training or special education that is not available to them in their home countries. The training cannot be in the medical field.
People who want to participate in a training or special education program in the U.S. with H-3 visas are not able to directly petition for the visas on their own. They must first apply to the training or special education program and be admitted. The institution that is holding the training or special education program will then need to petition for an H-3 visa on the admitted student’s behalf. If a petition is approved, the foreign national will then need to go through the application process at the U.S. consulate or embassy in his or her home country.
The application process includes submitting the Form DS-160, which is submitted online. The applicant will have to schedule an interview and bring several required documents. He or she will need to prove that he or she intends to return to his or her home country once the training or special education program is complete. If the application is approved, the applicant will be able to enter the U.S. and complete the training or education program. However, the visa holder will not be allowed to work other than any practical training that is required as a part of the curriculum.
Foreign nationals who are interested in employment-based immigration may want to talk to experienced immigration law attorneys. The lawyers might assist their clients with making sure that they submit all of the required materials correctly to improve their chances of being approved.
