H2B - Temporary Worker - Seasonal or Peak Load Work

Lawyer for H-2B Temporary Worker - Seasonal or Peak Load Visas

The H-2A visa is an employment-based visa in the United States that permits entry into the country to engage in seasonal work, intermittent work, a peak load need, or a one-time occurrence employment of a non-agricultural nature. Entertainers on tour, film workers and professional minor league ball players use this type of visa when in this country. To justify the hiring of foreign workers for this type of work, an employer must petition the immigration service and establish specific criteria relating to the type of work covered by the H-2B category.

For instance if you need to fill a one-time need, you must establish that workers have not been employed to do this work in the past, that this work will not need to be performed in the future or that an otherwise permanent employment situation now has a need for workers to support a temporary event of short duration. Exactly how these criteria are met and how these requirements are established make this a complex petition that an experienced Dallas immigration attorney can deal with in an efficient and expeditious manner.
