The H-2B visa allows U.S. employers and U.S. agents to bring foreign worker to the United States to fill temporary nonagricultural positions. For an H-2B to be approved, the petitioner must establish that there are not enough U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified, and available to do the temporary work and that they will pay the H-2B worker at least as much as another comparable worker in that position would earn in the same geographic area.
The H-2B visa is appropriate for temporary positions including a “one-time occurrence”, and for positions which are seasonal, peakload, or intermittent.
