Wouldn’t it be great for both US employers and foreign workers interested to work in the US to get more visa opportunities to migrate to US? Something to that effect has happened recently as the US government has decided to make more H2B visas available in FY 2023. This will enable US employers to plan for worker requirements in peak seasons in 2023.
The H2B visa is a non-immigrant visa that helps US employers to hire workers who are foreign nationals to arrive in the US temporarily and work in job roles under non-agricultural services/labor. Their employment will be on a temporary basis. H2B is used for employing foreigners on a seasonal, one-time, intermittent, or peak-load basis.
With the decision to make around 65,000 more H2B visas available in FY 2023, the US government is helping US employers to plan their peak season worker requirements more effectively with high productivity in view. The workers who will be hired will include both skilled and unskilled people.
The current allocation of H2B visas can be dissected in the following manner as we have come to know from USCIS:
The statutory cap applied semi-annually which is authorized under the Immigration & Nationality Act was 33,000 H2B visas. This was set for the first half of FY 2023. However, this cap was already reached on September 12, 2022.
Hence, now the additional visas have been allowed to make it possible for US employers to meet the requirement of a sufficient number of temporary employers for high seasonal productivity.
