UPDATE ON H-2B VISA AVAILABILITY

Posted on: July 17th, 2017

By: Kenneth S. Levine

The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security announced on June 17th an expansion of the H-2B visa quota. DHS Secretary Kelly, pursuant to his departmental authority, designated an additional 15,000 H-2B visas on top of the current 66,000 annual quota. 

It was made clear in the announcement that the 15,000 additional H-2B visas will apply solely to the current fiscal year.  FMG Immigration Attorneys expect that this new availability of H-2B visas will not last long.  As such, any businesses interested in pursuing an H-2B visa should decide promptly whether or not to proceed with the sponsorship process.
