Canadian citizens (or residents) who also possess Australian citizenship, or the Australian spouses of Canadian citizens or residents, should consider the advantages of the relatively new E-3 nonimmigrant visa category for Australian professionals. The E-3 visa category operates similarly to the H-1B1 visa category under the U.S.-Chile and U.S.-Singapore Free Trade Agreements. The E-3 visa may be renewed in two year periods indefinitely. One major advantage of the E-3 visa category is that spouses of an E-3 visa worker (no matter what their citizenship) are eligible to obtain work authorization.
