For many, H-2A visas are fantastic ways to make a living, albeit temporarily, by working here in the United States. Our firm has years of experience guiding clients through the process of obtaining these visas, and we are here to assist you as well. Please continue reading and contact Lightman Law Firm to learn more about the H-2A temporary agricultural worker visa and how our firm can help you obtain one.
What is an H-2A Temporary Agricultural Worker Visa?
This visa is available to individuals for agricultural positions that are temporary or seasonal in nature. There are no numerical limits for this type of visa. It is also worth noting that an H-2A worker’s spouse and unmarried children who are under the age of 21 may also be admitted into the United States in H-4 nonimmigrant classification.
How Can a Person Receive an H-2A Temporary Agricultural Worker Visa?
The visa requires that the employer file a labor certification application with the Department of Labor at least 45 days prior to needing the position filled stating that there are no United States workers available for the positions sought to be filled and that the employment of aliens for these positions will not adversely affect United States wages and working conditions.
These visas are valid for one year and renewals are available, but the foreign national cannot exceed three years in the United States.
The Importance of Competent Representation
When seeking any sort of immigration visa, it is paramount that you retain the services of a competent employment immigration lawyer who understands the ins and outs of immigration law. Though many law firms dabble in immigration law among other types of law, it is best to hire an attorney who exclusively practices immigration law. Incorrectly completed documents, missed deadlines, and more can put a person’s eligibility in jeopardy. Our firm can help ensure you have everything you need and that the process moves along as quickly as possible.
