H-2B Temporary Non Immigrant Visa Season is here!
As the fall time approaches, it comes time to look forward towards spring employment! (a little early, right? Not for immigration!) Fall is a great time to start preparing for the H-2B Temporary Non-Immigrant employment-based visa season. An H-2B visa is for seasonal, peak load, one-time or intermittent need temporary employment, not to exceed nine months. Examples of H-2B visas employment includes landscaping, snow plowing, tree climbers/pruners, hospitality work in hotels and resorts, and equestrian grooms. These are just some examples of the kinds of employment that meets the criteria of the H-2B visa. While the H-2B is a great opportunity for employers to find foreign nationals to come in and work a job, the process is complex and constantly changing. With new rules in place for this upcoming season, it is critical that employers and potential foreign national beneficiaries contact and use a reputable and knowledgable attorney to help navigate the Department of Labor and USCIS.
