More US Visas Could Become Available To Ireland


Share this article


Up to around 5,000 US visas could be made available to Irish people if a new bill is passed.

The bill proposes that Ireland gets added to the E3 visa, which is currently only being offered to Australian citizens.

10,500 of the visas are offered to Australians, allowing them to live and work in the US for two years. However, only half of the allocation is usually taken up.

As a result, US politicians have been looking at the possibility of opening up the programme to other countries.

Different to H1B visas

The bill was brought into the House of Representatives two weeks ago, and it's slightly different to the H1B visa that Irish people can apply for.

As a result, Irish people could have an easier, cheaper alternative to get into the USA if it's passed.

However, for the bill to pass then it would need the support of both the House and the US Senate.

According to the Irish Times, discussions have been held with the office of the House speaker Paul Ryan on getting the bill passed
