anyways, An Australian citizen is eligible for an E3 visa in the US, it's a work visa for Australians, and much easier to obtain than an H1-B (work visa for almost everyone else)

E3 is however not a green card and not a permanent visa. But the employer can later on apply for a green card for you, but there is nothing to compel them to do so

OK thanks so I've read the link and as I can see I'm unable to qualify for an e-3 visa. Are their any other possibilities. Cheers thanks.

Read up on the E-3 visa

E-3 Visa | Embassy of the United States Canberra, Australia


You need an employer to sponsor you so you need specialised skills. Also you need to have a degree to qualify
Their are 3 sub-categories that fall under an EB-3 visa and it looks as if I best fit under the 3rd category.

Am I still qualified or guaranteed a chance.
how will it work. Who do I need to speak to.
What is my next Move. Cheers.

The regulations define a "specialty occupation" as requiring theoretical and practical application of a body of highly specialized knowledge in a field of human endeavor including but not limited to biotechnology, chemistry, architecture, engineering, mathematics, physical sciences, social sciences, medicine and health, education, law, accounting, business specialties, theology, and the arts, and requiring the attainment of a bachelor’s degree or its equivalent as a minimum

In most cases one needs a sponsor to petition for a Green Card - spouse, family member, employer, ...
One also needs a sponsor for employment based visas.
Thank you sir understood now thankyou for your message. really appreciate it.

Cheers

Hi - Bringing your dog over shouldn't be too big a deal, once you have your immigration path sorted out. I moved from Australia to the US last year (sponsored by a US company), and brought my 6 year old dog. I used an approved pet transportation company (JetPets) who managed the whole process for me (shipping, paperwork, clearance into the US), making it one less thing for me to work through. Working with that particular pet transportation company, the process (from memory) looked something like:

1. Filled out a pretty simple form from the pet transportation company (name and address details, travel details, etc)
2. They sent a plastic shelled travel crate to my house several weeks ahead of my travel date, so I could get my dog accustomed to sleeping in it (my dog was already crate trained, so this wasn't too hard - though he still didn't really like it ... smelled of plastic, etc)
3. On the morning of my flying out, they came and picked up my dog. Instructions were pretty straight forward about feeding/food, what to put in the crate, etc. There is no sedation or anything like that, because they need to make sure your animal is healthy before and after travel, and the authorities in the USA will want to make sure they are admitting a healthy animal on their end.
4. I traveled as normal, knowing my dog was on my same flight. We were both on Virgin.
5. On arrival, my dog was picked up by the pet travel company in the USA, given water etc, taken out to do his business, and inspected by US authorities. I picked up my dog around 2-3 hours after I cleared customs (gave me time to get a rental car and sort out my mobile phone), from a pet collection point near the airport. Dog was very happy to see me. You keep the travel crate if you want it.

Pretty straight forward. No real quarantine (except for the inspection time in the USA, where I think he was "observed" for a couple of hours). I believe you can do some of this yourself (e.g. you can do the paperwork, and not use an approved pet transportation company).

Hope that helps. Good luck!
