When renewing an E3 visa, the visa holder may renew their visa while still inside the United States if they can answer yes to all of the following questions:
• Are they applying for the same type of visa within 12 months of the expiration of the previous visa?
• Have they previously provided a full set of fingerprints to a U.S. Consular office?
• Are they an Australian permanent resident or citizen?
• Are they a resident of the consular district in which they are renewing their E3 visa?
• Was the previous visa approved at the time of the interview without any additional administrative processing?
• Was the previous visa not stolen, lost, or revoked?
• Do they still have the same name and nationality since the issuance of the last visa?
• Have never been refused a visa or entry to the United States?
• Their previous visa had no waivers of ineligibility (for instance, if the applicant had a criminal record)?
• They have had no arrests or convictions in the period of time between the granting of the last visa and the current renewing E3 visa?
• Have no other ineligibilities or failures to comply with U.S. immigration law?
If all of these criteria are met, renewing an E3 visa while still inside the United States may be possible. In order to start this process, contact officials at your resident Consular district.
