What is the H2B Work Visa?
The H2B Visa is a work visa for individuals that seek non-agricultural jobs, in
which the U.S. workers are in short supply. There is a limit of 66,000 H2B
visas issued every year, and the annual quota is not always reached.
H2B Visa Eligibility Requirements: You qualify for an H2B Work Visa if
you are coming to the United States to accept a temporary or seasonal
non-agricultural job from an U.S. employer. You may apply if you have the
correct background, skills or natural abilities needed by the employer. H2B
Visas are targeted at skilled and unskilled workers.
