The H3 visa is designated for individuals who will come to the US to participate in a training program. There is no numerical limit to the number of H3 visas issued. In order to qualify the H3 visa, the petition must evidence the following:
- the proposed training is not available in the beneficiary’s home country;
- the beneficiary will not be placed in a position which is in the normal operation of the business, and in which citizens and resident alien workers are regularly employed;
- the beneficiary will not be productively employed except as incidental to training; and
- the training will benefit the beneficiary in pursuing a career outside the US.
Spouses and children of H3 visa holders may enter and remain in the US in H4 status. H4 visa holders may attend school in the US but cannot accept employment.
