Unskilled/Other workers are part of the third preference employment-based immigrant visa category (EB-3), which is a path to residency in the United States. The EB-3 category is comprised of Skilled Workers, Professionals, and Unskilled Workers. A job offer and labor certification is required for the EB-3, Unskilled Worker category.
Unskilled workers refer to individuals performing unskilled labor that requires less than two (2) years training or work experience that is not of a temporary or seasonal nature. Similar to the other EB-2 classifications (Professionals and Skilled Workers), the Unskilled/Other Worker subcategory requires a job offer and PERM labor certification by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), unless the occupation falls under a "Schedule A" occupation which means there is a shortage of workers in the occupation. A national interest waiver is not available for the EB-3 category.
