USA H2B Seasonal Work
The H-2B Visa USA program is available to both students and non-students, and offers individuals the opportunity to work in the United States for a period of time defined by a company’s seasonal or peak-need in their business. The program also allows individuals to remain in the United States for three consecutive years on the H-2B visa working for different employers each season.
You’ll have a chance to meet new friends, learn about U.S. culture, improve your English, and add international experience to your CV. Work in everything from landscapers/groundskeepers to bartenders/waiters, work at amusement parks, water parks, ski resorts and more!
§ Be at least 18 years of age (no age limit)
§ Be willing to work in unskilled positions
§ Possess intermediate level of English (be able to have a basic conversation in English)
§ First the US employer applies to the US government to gain permission to hire seasonal (winter or summer) H-2B workers.
§ Next the employer decides which eligible candidates they would like to hire.
§ Then each H-2B worker applies for and (hopefully) is granted their H-2B visa or visa extension.
Things to Remember:
§ This process is very long and usually takes 6-7 months for an employer from start to finish.
§ Each H-2B worker must have an offer of employment from a US company before they can apply for the H-2B visa.
