H-2B Visa [What is it?]

The H-2B program allows U.S. employers or U.S. agents who meet specific regulatory requirements to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary nonagricultural jobs.

A U.S. employer, or U.S. agent as described in the regulations, must file Form I-129, Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker, on a prospective worker’s behalf.

H-2B petitioners must also provide a single valid temporary labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).
