H-2A Visa: Temporary Agricultural Worker
Understanding the H-2A Visa
The H-2A Visa is designed specifically for foreign nationals who wish to come to the United States for temporary or seasonal agricultural work. This visa allows U.S. employers or agents to bring in foreign workers when there are insufficient U.S. workers who are able, willing, and available to do the work.
Qualifying for an H-2A Visa
To qualify for an H-2A Visa, you must have a job offer from a U.S. employer for temporary or seasonal agricultural work. Employers must also demonstrate that employing foreign workers will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers.
What Documentation is Required?
The H-2A application process is detailed and involves the submission of multiple documents.
Key documents needed include:
Temporary Labor Certification: Your U.S. employer must demonstrate a shortage of available U.S. workers and that employing foreign workers won't adversely affect local workers' conditions.
Proof of Nationality: You will need to provide a valid passport to confirm your residence in a participating country.
Nature of Work: Documents detailing that the work is temporary or seasonal, such as a contract or agreement, are essential.
Recruitment Efforts: Your employer must provide evidence of its effort to hire U.S. workers, such as job postings or recruitment reports.
Housing Inspections: In some cases, your employer may need proof of worker housing inspections meeting Department of Labor standards.
Remember, every case is unique, and additional documents may be requested. Our attorneys will work with you and your employer to identify and organize the paperwork.
