Those who received an H-2B visa in 2013, 2014 or 2015 can renew it under the “returned workers” program in excess of the statutory quota of 66 thousand of this type of visas. These visas are issued to seasonal workers in various fields, with the exception of agriculture. The spouses and children of H-2B workers who receive an H-4 visa are also not subject to the limit.

Congress has now set 66 thousands of H-2B type visas to limit: 33 thousands of visas issue workers in the first half of the fiscal year (1 October-31 March) and 33 thousands of visas for workers entering the second half of the fiscal year (1 April -30 September). If the limit is not reached in the first half of the fiscal year, the difference is added to the second half of the fiscal year. However, if less than 66 thousand species were issued for the year, the difference is not transferred to the next fiscal year.

Once the visa limit has been reached, the Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) accepts the petition from the worker who is requesting a re-visa under the Returned Worker program.

The fiscal year 2016 began on October 1, 2015.

According to the Citizenship and Immigration Services, 2016 19 work visas of type H-655B were issued for the first half of the fiscal 2 of the year. 12 293 visa applications are pending. A total of 31 948 applications were submitted.

Рworking visa H-2B assumes seasonal work under a contract that lasts from 6 to 10 months with the possibility of extending to 3 for a year. Work can be both qualified and unqualified. Usually, American companies are looking for service personnel to work in the landscape industry, in the field of hotel and restaurant services, as well as to work in amusement parks and golf clubs.
