About BDV Solutions

Why does this process work?

More employers than ever are struggling to find applicants for their unskilled positions. Industries like janitorial, restaurants, packing and warehousing have been hit hardest. Rather than closing their doors, many employers have looked for creative solutions to staff their businesses. One option that many employers have found advantageous is pursuing sponsorships of prospective immigrants who are willing to fill openings with the help of an EB-3 unskilled visa.

The Immigration Act of 1990 created an Employment Based Visa program that has allowed US businesses to sponsor foreign nationals willing and qualified to work.  There are five categories of EB visas, the first two of which require skilled labor and extensive education, and part of third of which (the EB-3 visa) targets workers who can perform unskilled labor for their future employers.

The EB-3 "Other Worker" Visa process leads directly to U.S. permanent residency with more favorable conditions than most
routes available in immigration law today!
