New Jersey H2-B Visa Lawyer
Immigration Assistance for Temporary Non-Agricultural Workers
Of the many non-immigrant visas, there is one called the H-2B non-immigrant visa.
This visa permits foreign national workers to come to the United States
and perform temporary non-agricultural work that is one-time, peak load,
intermittent or seasonal in nature. Before a
work visa will be issued, the employer is required to show that no U.S. workers
are available to fill the position being offered. Only 66,000 of these
types of visas are issued per year and they authorize a stay for only one year.
There is an annual limit of H-2B visas of 66,000 per year. The maximum period of stay that will be authorized is one year; however,
the visa can be
extended for a total of three years. Either skilled or unskilled workers can be
employed on an H-2B visa. The only workers who are specifically excluded
for this type of visa are foreign medical graduates applying for work
in the medical field and agricultural workers.
The Department of Labor strictly enforces regulations for this type of
visa, ensuring that there are indeed no U.S. workers that can work in
these positions and that hiring foreign nationals will not adversely affect
U.S. wages or working conditions.
