What is an actual H2-A Visa?

Updated: Aug 4, 2023

a US H-2A visa work permit

The H-2A visa is a non-immigrant visa that allows employers in the United States to bring foreign workers to the country temporarily to fill temporary or seasonal agricultural jobs. This visa is intended to address the shortage of available workers in the U.S. agricultural industry, particularly during peak seasons when demand for labor is highest.

To qualify for an H-2A visa, employers must demonstrate that there are not enough available, qualified, and willing U.S. workers to fill the positions they are seeking to fill. They must also provide certain guarantees and protections to the foreign workers they employ, such as a guaranteed minimum wage, free housing, and transportation to and from the job site. Consider contacting a registered agent like Head Honchos to get more details.

The H-2A visa is a temporary visa that is typically granted for up ten months. After the visa expires, the worker must return to their home country, unless they have been approved for a change of status to another visa category or have obtained lawful permanent residence in the U.S.
