Temporary Non-Agricultural Workers Visa

Every year the USA welcomes thousands of people under the Temporary Worker Visa Program. There are various categories of non-immigrant visas for a person who wishes to work temporarily in the United States. They are based on the US immigration laws, namely the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). This free application Pack is intended as a guide for anyone interested in entering the United States on a Temporary Work Visa.


Under INA, if you want to work in the U.S. temporarily, you need a specific visa based on the purpose of your travel and type of work you will be doing.

The basic requirement before you come to the United States lawfully as a nonimmigrant to work temporarily in the United States is for your prospective employer to file a nonimmigrant petition on your behalf with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service’s (USCIS).

H-2B Temporary or Seasonal Nonagricultural Workers. This classification generally requires a temporary labor certification issued by the Department of Labor. The limit for H-2B visas is 66,000 per year.

The US Department of State (DOS) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has strict rules about who it lets in to study in the US. It is vital that all prospective applicants apply for a visa in the correct category using the correct application forms. Failure to submit the form correctly and accurately can result in delays and sometimes denial. Failure to submit the correct supporting documents or to lie in your application can lead to a denial and in many cases you will not be allowed to apply for a US Visa for a period of ten years.
