H-2A Visa Processing

Are you looking to boost your labor force for planting or harvest season on your farm? If you are in the agricultural business and are interested in seeking resources from other countries to meet your labor needs, then an H-2A visa may help. This is a visa used for temporary workers from other countries without the ability to immigrate. 

 

You can expect the processing time to be about 90 to 120 days so plan accordingly. And, once the workers arrive, they will be allowed to stay up to 10 months.

H-2B Visa Processing

Finding skilled help in the local market for nonagricultural jobs like roofing, landscaping, painting, construction, theme parks, hotels, and the like can be challenging. Thankfully, an H-2B visa can allow you to temporarily employ talent from other countries. 

 

Much like the aforementioned visa, the H-2B visa takes some time to process - as long as 4 to 5 months. Once approved, workers are able to stay in the U.S. for up to 9 months. 

H-4 Visa Processing

Coming to the U.S. to work for months at a time can make it hard to be away from loved ones. With the H-4 visa, immediate family members of workers holding H-2A and H-2B visas can be authorized to come to the United States. While the family may be kept together, this visa does not permit working and the family must leave together when the work visa is up. 

 

H-4 visas take, on average, about 90 days to secure. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an H-2A Visa?

 

An H-2A visa is one that allows farmers and others in the agricultural industry to employ a workforce from other countries. It will allow these individuals to be employed for up to 10 months at a time before having to return to their country. 

 

What is an H-2B Visa?

 

An H-2B visa allows employers seeking a labor force outside of the U.S. to be employed in non-agricultural industries, including but limited to construction, landscaping, hospitality, tourism, etc. 

 

What is an H-4 Visa?

 

Known as the Mi Familia program, an H-4 visa is one that is used to allow families of those holding H-2A and H-2B visas to all come to the United States. The H-4 visa does not permit the family to work, but they can be together until the work ends and it is time to leave the country. 

 

H-4 visas only apply to spouses and children under 20 years of age. 

 

Are employers required to provide housing for visa holders?

 

It depends. For those with H-2A visas, employers are required to provide both free housing and transportation. However, employers are not required to provide housing and transportation to those with H-2B visas.
