H-2B Visa Program Summary
The H-2B classification allows foreign nationals who are citizens of certain named countries, with limited exceptions, to accept temporary non-agricultural employment in the United States, after the employer has obtained temporary labor certification by establishing that there were no willing, able and qualified U.S. workers available during the period of recruitment. Mariana Baron of Preti Flaherty's Corporate and M&A and Immigration practice groups has created a useful summary of the current H-2B Visa Program, including a checklist of requirements, the application process and timeline, and a list of necessary documents.
