H-2 visas are available for workers coming to the United States to work temporarily in agriculture, construction, forestry, and similar jobs. While H-2A visa is available for agricultural jobs, H-2B is available for all other temporary non-agricultural jobs. In accordance with USCIS requirements, the temporary labor must be needed by the employer for a limited period of time. Such a period of time generally will be limited to one year or less, but a one-time event could last up to three years. The employer’s need for services or labor must be on a one-time basis, seasonal, for a peak load, or intermittent basis. To obtain this visa, first the U.S. employer must apply to USCIS by submmitting the I-129 Form for approval. Then, if approved, the employee may apply to US consulate to obtain the visa.
