United States Trainee Visa (H3 Visa)

Select your Language


H3 Trainee Visa General Information: The United States issues H3 Temporary Trainee Visas to foreign nationals who wish to come to the United States for on-the-job training provided by an American company. H3 Trainee Visa holders are allowed to work only for the company that is providing the training, and employment should only play a minor role in the program. The main objective should be the training, not the actual work. H3 Temporary Trainee Visas are usually issued for the duration of the training program (up to 2 years). Extensions may be granted, but within the 2-year limit.

H3 Trainee Visa Eligibility Requirements and Restrictions: The following programs qualify for H3 Temporary Trainee Visas: agriculture, technology, finance, communications, government, and almost any other fields, except for medical training programs. There are other H3 Trainee Visa restrictions, including that the training program is not available in the applicant's home country and that the training will benefit the applicant in pursuing a career and obtaining employment in the applicant's home country.

H3 Trainee Visa Additional Information: There is no annual cap on the number of H3 Temporary Trainee Visas that can be issued. Spouses and unmarried children under 21 years of age of H3 Visa holders are eligible for H4 Visas. Dependents may remain in the United States, travel in and out of the country, but are not allowed to work on H4 Visa status.
