H-2A Visa

What are the requirements?

Offer a job that is of a temporary or seasonal nature.

Demonstrate that there are not sufficient U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified, and available to do the temporary work.

Show that the employment of H-2A workers will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers.

Generally, submit with the H-2A petition, a single valid temporary labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor.  (A limited exception to this requirement exists in certain “emergent circumstances.”  See e.g., 8 CFR 214.2(h)(5)(x) for specific details.)
