The diversity lottery is not applicable to people born in the UK, apart from NI.

I didn't know that......I've met a few Irish who have got a green card through the lottery, so assumed anyone could.

So you're saying that every January, MS hires 2000 people in Sydney to go and work for them in the US?

Bullshit

US citizens get taxed on all worldwide income regardless of tax residency, subject to certain tax treaty and tax credit provisions.

Nonetheless, it's an interesting visa category

Yes, it's special in many ways.

It is available only to Australian nationals and can be extended indefinitely, within or outside the US (unlike many visas which must be applied for in a US embassy/consulate). Spouse and unmarried children under 21 years of age are entitled to the same visa regardless of nationality.

Australian citizens applying for E-3 are not subject to the 65,000 annual visa limit for H-1B visas. A separate annual quota of 10,500 E-3 visas is believed to be much more generous to Australians than requiring them to compete with all other nationalities for H-1B visas.

One calculation is that E-3 guarantees Australians 15% of combined annual US visas for persons in specialty occupations, if they want such visas, even though Australia only has 0.3% of the world’s non-US population.
