How Can H-2B Visas Help Solve the Construction Industry Labor Shortage?

What is the H-2B visa program?

With H-2B visa jobs, non-immigrant guest workers are permitted to work in the U.S. in temporary, non-agricultural jobs. This program is not intended to provide a pathway to permanent residence or citizenship, and it does not have specific educational, occupational, or skill requirements.

Who qualifies for H-2B visas and under what conditions?

  • Have valid Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN)
  • Have a physical place of business in the United States, and
  • Have a means by which you can be contacted for employment
If you meet those qualifications as an employer, then you can consider whether the positions you need workers for may qualify by asking yourself a few general questions.
While experienced construction industry employers already know when hiring is tough, the Department of Labor (DOL) will still need to certify that fact formally. If you believe that your hiring needs will pass muster with the DOL, then you are ready to begin your application.

What are the steps of the application process?

Are there any caps on the number of H-2B workers?

What are the odds of approval?
