There are various job opportunities in non-specialized occupations that arise throughout the U.S. If you wish to capitalize on one of these opportunities, then there are a number of steps to complete, and you will need an H-2B visa in order to collect a salary while you are in the country.
How to Apply for an H-2B Visa
The H-2B visa allows for temporary work in a non-specialized field, which does not include agricultural work. These kinds of jobs can include:
- Hospitality workers
- Resorts and Theme parks
- Cruise ships
- Winter resorts
- Restaurants and bars
- Retail stores
Essentially, this temporary worker visa will qualify you for any non-specialty job with a recurring or intermittent need, or when there is a peak-load or one-time need. If the job typically requires a bachelor's degree or higher education, then your prospective employer would need to file for an H-1B visa. Once your employer has given you a job offer and you have shown that you meet the minimum requirements for the job, the employer must file the visa application and you will need to show that you intend to return home after the job is complete.
Validity Period & Accommodations for Family Members
This visa will be issued with a validity period necessary to complete the job for up to one year. Once the visa has expired, a new one will need to be obtained in order for you to continue work in the temporary field. If you have a family, and you are seeking temporary employment in the United States for a prolonged period of time, the U.S. Government recognizes the toll that this can take. It is important to know that if you are married, and you have children under the age of 21, they may be eligible to come to the U.S. with you on non-immigrant H-4 status, provided that they obtain visas.
