It’s funny writing a post about the E3 Visa where I have not had definitive answer for you the reader. However since I get asked this question often I thought I would write a brief post about E3 visa employers now I may have some new and exciting information. 🙂
However I think I do have what as far as I am aware is a first anywhere on the Internet. (at least in an easily accessible way)
While in the past I have had the Top 100 H-1B visa employers and directed E3 visa Australians search for US employers to this list as well as the Top companies who sponsor US Visas List and List of Employers who Sponsor H1B visa you have never heard about. This in and of itself was not adressing the fundamental question of the Top Employers who sponsor E3 visas specifically.
In another entry I talked about explaining the E3 visa to employers as important step to understand and very relevant if you may be applying to companies in the US on the above lists or indeed any company.
Well Today I am going to reveal for you for the first time the Top 70 employers that sponsored E3 visas only and the number they sponsored!! 🙂
What you will notice on this list is;
– many companies like Microsoft who are also in top few sponsors of H1B visas
– a few Australian companies like ANZ bank who have possibly opted for the E3 visa as an easier and less costly option than the L1 visa for staff transferring to their US offices
– the organization Consultants Exchange who I do mention a few times in posts and on the resource list as an organization to consider for E3 visa sponsorship but one I don’t know how good they are personally. The fact they appear high on this list and for a number of US states bodes well for their credibility
– otherwise just a who’s who of some of the top global brands in the world
Well without delaying any longer here is the list of the Top E3 visa employers in the US from last year!

I am trying to find sponsorship in an entry-level job (yep, wish me luck). What I would like to know is if an company agree to take me on, and I get the E3 visa, do they have to pay to sponsor me? All the above companies sound wealthy so maybe they have cash reserves for this kind of thing, right?
You wouldn’t know where I can find more infor on the subject, do you?
P.S I’m from Sydney, have lived in Melbourne for a year and am trying to get work in Boston – and then dreaming of one day living in NY. I’m mirroring your path a little I noticed!
It is great to have your goals and plan and keep believing and you will achieve it just maybe not exactly in the way you imagine 🙂
Now the difficulty the larger companies you see in this list is yes the costs are not an issue for them and in reality the cost for an employer are non existant as you can see here; https://visacoach.org/2009/01/27/how-much-does-it-cost-to-get-your-e3-or-h1b-visa/
However the issue more lies in that larger companies will always use a lawyer for visa related things out of ignorance and habit more than anything else as other visa like the H1B lend themselves to requiring the assistance of legal people. So that being said an employer of the sizes will view you as added cost vs. a local hire so the expense must be worth it. So the hires tend to be people higher than entry level or maybe if there is some personal connection between the candidate and someone within the company.
Now that is not to say entry level positions are not possible but you want to aim for smaller companies for the most part assuming you don’t have personal connections to call on. I will probably do a post on a selection of the smaller companies who sponsored E3 visas but in reality your net is wide here but I just advise you to pick an industry segment to focus on and master it. You always at the back of your mind have to frame things with entry level of any other position why an employer would want the extra layer of work to hire you vs. a local candidate and present as such.
I wish you well in your search and hope you end up in the US sooner rather than later 🙂
I am a Kenyan with a BSc. degree in Biochemistry. I am looking for an employer who is willing and able to sponsor my E3 visa.
The E3 visa is only available for Australian citizens so you would not be able to apply for it. The best work visa to consider is the H-1B visa; https://visacoach.org/2009/03/10/what-is-the-h-1b-visa-how-do-i-get-one-now/. However you should note the many conditions regarding the process of obtaining this visa.
Hello, I currently work for a Tier 1 Telecommunications company in Sales/Account Management and was wondering if there are opportunities in New York within my line of work under the e3 visa??
Sorry for the delay in reply. I mean without going out and looking up those roles myself in NY, I am sure there would be. Additionally those Sales/Account Management type roles could also be found in related industries too like Online, Marketing, etc. so you could search more broadly as well. As for the E3 visa part that is really separate to the role and is really up to the company in question as to whether they are willing to sponsor a foreigner for the role. Very rarely (and it is illegal anyway to do it openly) are roles designated for foreigners.
What is the best or most appropriate strategy in attainng an E3 Visa? There are companies such as Consultants Exchange who can assist in salary packaging but ultimately it is up to the individual to source the employment.
I have been told the “easiest” way to find a job is to go to the US on a tourist visa, find a job and hope either the employer employs you on an E3 visa OR get a company like consultants exchange to sponsor you.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Honestly as you noted coming to the US is the “easiest” way as you put it as it almost impossible for most people to be hired sight unseen. Read this post and all the follow on links for the best tips, resume ideas, sites to visit for jobs, etc. https://visacoach.org/2009/08/16/e3-visa-faqs-myths/.
I am trying to find sponsorship in an entry-level job, i have a few connection in the US. i know it won’t be easy but i will be going to the US in a few weeks and look for jobs
i was wondering does industrial/ product designer qualify for E-3 visa (i am Australian)
should i get all the forms fill in before i go so that if i do get a job i can go back to Australia and hand in the E-3 forms?
i read through a lot of website and they still don’t tell you what kind of job qualify for E-3. is it similar requirement to the TN visa?
There aren’t that many forms to fill in and the important information you won’t have until after you find a company so no point doing that in advance. The best things to do in advance is applying and trying to setup interviews if you can prior to arriving in the US so you can maximize your time. Your line of work will be fine as long as the position states that a Bachelors Degree is a minimum requirement and you have the necessary minimum qualifications. Read here for more info; https://visacoach.org/2009/05/22/e3-visa-the-bachelors-degree-specialty-occupation-conditions/.
Great site. I am a Private Investigator and just found out that my profession may be considered in the specialty occupations to obtain an E-3 visa. (yes im australian 😉
I also found a Company in NYC (a dream of mine also) willing to meet with me and very interested in giving me a position within their company if the meeting goes well. I am interested in finding out more information about their role in all of this and would love to have the information for them before this interview, as I dont think its fair to ask them for a job and have them do all the relevant work themselves…
Can you give me any info on their role to employ me? The cost for them? How much of the time it will take for them? Anything would be useful, so I can turn up armed with all of this info to make their tast a little easier?
I appreciate any help you can offer me..
Thank you so much
I forgot to mention…no i dont have a bachelor’s degree, but I do have 15 years experience in the field and have been told that this is ok…
I’m registered with a recruitment agency and they said they’d be open to sponsoring me for the E3. They do mostly temp to perm roles, not straight permanent roles and they’d definitely have positions for me. Would this be possible? Would they have to employ me directly full-time and then subcontract me out as they pleased?
I know I have to get a full time job to get the visa, but would the recruitment agency offer be a viable option? I have 2 tertiary degrees in my field.
Any advice/help would be great as I have to let them know soon.
Ultimately there is no cost for them as far as application costs are concerned and they just have to follow this process (https://visacoach.org/2010/01/15/e3-visa-process/). Your ultimate challenge is showing that your vast experience is an appropriate substitute for a bachelors degree in the US. It certainly is more than enough experience but ultimately the discretion of the Consulate to state whether it is adequate. Also the job you are applying to must have bachelors degree as a minimum requirement of the role.
Technically the company sponsoring your visa has to be the one paying your salary and not contracting you out although it has known to be done. It just has a danger of being rejected. The role does not need to be full time, you are allowed to have one or my part time roles with each company listed on your E3 visa.
I have a green card application in process with priority date Sep 06, am currently working in the USA on H1C visa which is about to expire. Would I be valid for an E3 visa? and would this affect my status with green card. PS I have australian citizenship/ passport too.
Thanks for the fantastic site.
I was wondering if you had an updated version of this list? Or could you point us in the right direction to find it elsewhere?
I’m now in the process of stalking potential employers!
Thanks a million,
I am having extreme trouble in finding work in the social worker field in New York. I have a Bachelor Degree and 3 years of work experience in the field. I want to apply for the E-3 VISA. I am also in a relationship with someone who lives in NYC hence why I would like to move here. Any tips in regards to my field of work? Is it easier just to get hitched?
Hi, Please help its all so confusing , I am a sales person and F&I in the auto industry, 10 years expeirence. I have an employer willing to sponser me but have no idea what steps to take i have had to many different details on how to go about it . I am fully licenced and Qualified and requirements for this position ussually require a bach degree which I do not have , Though my employer still feels im more qualified than anyone they can find over there. Please if you could help would be so much appreciated.
I would like to reiterate Dominique’s post from above and see if she had any luck?
I am also a Social Worker with 3 years experience (pus 3 years experience as a classroom teacher) and would be looking to get an E3 visa and work in NYC as a social worker. Dominique, if you are out there and have pursued this process, I would love love love you to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can discuss!
But also very interested in any responses to this scenario? Anywhere we can aim as social workers where employers would be more open sponsoring?
Kat when it comes to a job like social work it is very unlikely employers will sponsor a visa given both the limited amount of jobs versus amount of local candidates and also the salary level and company’s ability to pay not being that high relative to prevailing wage requirements.. Also you would generally need a lot of qualifications to do social work as often people have graduate degrees so it becomes competitive.
I was previously on a J1 Visa in Los Angeles and moved back to Australia after the end of my visa. I am now seeking to return to Dallas and wondering if you think the fact I have previously worked in the USA will increase my chances of being sponsored?
Also, I am including in my cover letter this following phrase:
I am currently in Australia and am an Australian citizen who was previously employed in the USA on a working visa in Los Angeles for over a year. I hope to be hired under an E3 visa (the process is free, easy and locks me to your company for a renewable 2 years). I think my international experience within the *insert your work experience* sector will bring a dynamic and creative collaboration to this role.
Do you think this is helpful to be so transparent? Or perhaps only mention the seeking of the visa once I get a bite?
I have done Masters of Business Information and Management Systems with over 4 years of work experience as a Business Analyst in web based digital projects in Australia. I am Australian Citizen. What prospects do I have getting job in US? Also is there someone who can help me with resume preparation, job applications, interviews and so on?
I am trying to find sponsorship in any level in IT field and I don’t have much connection in the US job market. Presuming that it won’t be easy to get that but my question is should I go to US to look for jobs or I can able to find some E3 sponsored company through internet. If anyone knows any link/site please send me that will be highly appreciable.
Thanks in advance for supporting me.
I currently work within an Australian Government agency as a management accountant and was hoping to gain sponsorship in a accounting / finance role in any area within the US.
What chances do I have of being sponsored given my highest level of education is a Diploma?
I’m from Vietnam. I’m a banker for almost 5 years now. I’ve got a bachelor’s degree in finance but it’s from a Vietnamese university. Is there any chance i can get a job under the E3 visa? I’m not aiming for big city or big salary since i only want to be there because my mom has just moved to the US with her husband and i want to be with her (ideally i much prefer Canada).
I am Australian citizen and working in IT , SAP Testing Lead since 7 years.
what would be opportunity to get job in California. i have family live there and thus best place to move there.
Could you pls advise where to find the latest list of the Top E3 visa employers in the US?e.g. 2017 or 2018
