H-2B

The H-2B visa allows U.S. Employers to bring in citizens from a select number of countries to work in temporary, non-agricultural positions. Note that the selected countries employers in the US are allowed to hire from are dependent on a list the U.S. Department of Homeland Security released. 

  Only 66,000 H-2B visas are issued each year to employers who can show the following:

  • A shortage of U.S. workers who are both available and qualified for the position
  • Employing the potential H-2B national will not affect the wages of U.S. workers.
  • Employers’ need for the foreign national’s work is solely for a temporary period.

The application process for an H-2B visa is quite like the process needed for an H-2A visa in that they both require a temporary labor certification and Form I-129 for temporary labor.
