H-2B - Temporary Workers Visa

Tractors in a farm fieldThe H-2 Visa is a petition-based nonimmigrant temporary working visa. The H-2 visa category is further divided into H-2A and H-2B. The H-2A visa is granted to perform temporary agricultural services when there are no workers available for that job in the US. The H-2B visa is equivalent to the H-2A visa but is granted to non-agricultural workers when those services are not available in the US.
