Drive for acceptance of E3 visa Bill in US | Print |  Email
Sunday, 05 February 2012

The Irish Times reports that the Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform in New York has been active in pushing for the passing of the E3 visa Bill which could pave the way for 10,000 Irish citizens to obtain work visas for the US. Members of the ILIR recently had meetings at the White House with members of the Obama administration, seeking the President’s support for the Bill.

The E3 Bill is being driven by New York Senator Charles ‘Chuck’ Schumer and so far has the support of 50 Senators. The priority now is for the Irish in the US to lobby Republican Senators for support. If passed, Irish people will be able to apply for the E3 visa, a two-year work visa that can be renewed indefinitely.
