Is it possible to apply directly for a green card while on the Australian E-3 visa?


Yes, a company (or appropriate family member) could file a GC case for an E-3. The process typically is the same for most employment-based GC cases – PERM I-140/I-485. It would be important to consider timing with E-3 renewals, but it likely could be done. (11.Jan.2016)
