Astir is looking for E3 visa candidates

February 09, 2015

The Astir Family of Companies has made use of the H1B visa program since we started in 2001.  Using this program has allowed us to sponsor some of the best and brightest IT talent the market has to offer... which has fueled the award winning IT services and solutions we provide to clients.  The H1B visa program, in combination with other recruitment avenues has been instrumental in growing our business.

In addition to sponsoring H1B visas, Astir has also participated in the lesser known E3 visa program.  The E3 work visa is designed specifically for Australian nationals who wish to enter the U.S. to perform services in a "specialty occupation."  The E3 visa sponsorship program was established in 2005, and has offered Australian citizens wonderful employment opportunities they otherwise may not have been exposed to.

As per the USCIS, the formal definition of a "specialty occupation" is as follows:  "A theoretical and practical application of a body of specialized knowledge; and the attainment of a bachelor's or higher degree in the specific specialty (or its equivalent) as a minimum for entry into the occupation in the United States."  In determining whether an occupation qualifies as a "specialty occupation," follow the definition contained in the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) 214 (i)(1) for H-1B nonimmigrants and applicable standards and criteria determined by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS.)  Please see the USCIS page for more information.

Astir has been sponsoring E3 candidates over the past few years, and wishes to expand upon the success we've had with our E3 visa sponsorship program.  We are seeking qualified individuals with a minimum of a Bachelors Degree in a specialized field and are looking for lucrative employment in the U.S.  We have extensive experience providing visa sponsorship for foreign nationals who are looking to begin or further a lucrative career as an IT consultant.  If you are interested, or would like to learn more, please contact us today.

We are also seeking qualified individuals on F1-OPT, CPT, or L2 status looking for H1B sponsorship.
