H-3 Trainee Visa | Washington DC Immigration Law Firm

Temporary Non-Immigrant Work Visas

A non-immigrant visa grants you temporary stay in the United States. When your visa expires, you must leave the United States unless you have applied for Legal Permanent Residency. 

U.S. employers or organizations may bring foreign nationals to the United States as either a temporary trainee or a Special Education Exchange Visitor with an H-3 visa. The U.S. employer or organization must file a Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker.

What are the Qualifications for an H-3 Visa?

  • Receive training (other than graduate medical education or training) that is not available in the foreign national’s country
  • Special Education Exchange Visitor in order to participate in a training program related to practical training and experience in the education of children with disabilities.

When does the H-3 visa expire?

An H-3 trainee nonimmigrant may remain in the United States for up to 2 years. If the petition is approved for a special education exchange visitor, then the trainee may remain in the United States for up to 18 months.
