If you are a farmer who needs seasonal or temporary labor for planting, cultivating, and harvesting crops or a construction company that builds agricultural confinement facilities, but domestic workers are in short supply the H-2A program may be the solution for you!
The H-2A visa program is a federal program designed to fulfill labor shortages in the agriculture industry, allowing employers to get an adequate and legal labor force, while also protecting jobs and wages of U.S. workers.
This program allows employers to apply for nonimmigrant alien workers (guest temporary workers) to perform any type of farm work or construction taking place on the farm for up to 10 months a year. Some benefits of the program include:
You can apply for the H-2A visa program if you are an agriculture employer or group of employers who need workers to perform seasonal labor or construction on a farm. We recommend that you contact an H-2A Specialist to help them navigate the government requirements doing so can avoid errors in the process that can result in large penalties and expensive fines.
