The EB3 US visa is an immigrant visa. This visa is for persons performing unskilled labor requiring less than 2 years training or experience, not of a temporary or seasonal nature. The worker, spouse, and their unmarried under-21 children are able to come to United States of America altogether.

The main aim of this Visa was to supplement United States (US) Workforce with unskilled jobs for which there are not sufficient US workers able, willing, qualified and available to accept in the area of intended employment and that employment of the foreign worker will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed US workers.

Each year, the US only allots approximately 140,000 employment-based immigrant visas to qualified foreign applicants. That means that these visas are limited, and thus difficult to obtain with so many immigrants wishing to live and work in the US.
