Passing of US E3 Visa Bill a welcome step for the Irish-Jackson

Sinn Féin’s International  spokesperson Councillor Christopher Jackson has welcomed the passing of the ‘E3 Bill’ in the US Congress  which will allow Irish citizens to participate in the established E3 Visa programme. 

He  said:

“The passing of the E3 bill in the US  is a welcome move for Irish citizens who wish to travel to America to gain professional experience.

“This Bill allows Irish citizens who are qualified the opportunity to travel to the US under the E3 programme which is currently only available to Australian citizens.

“While this is a welcome step forward, the Irish Government must continue their efforts to encourage and secure a comprehensive emigration reform policy that is fair and inclusive.”
