Understanding the basics

The H-2A program allows U.S. employers or U.S. agents who meet specific regulatory requirements to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary agricultural jobs.

To qualify for H-2A nonimmigrant classification, the petitioner must:

  • Offer a job that is of a temporary or seasonal nature.
  • Demonstrate that there are not enough U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified, and available to do the temporary work.
  • Show that employing H-2A workers will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers.
  • Generally, submit a single valid temporary labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor with the H-2A petition. (A limited exception to this requirement exists in certain "emergent circumstances." See e.g., 8 CFR 214.2(h)(5)(x) for specific details.)

How much does it cost to apply?

U.S. Government Filing Fees: $460

There are US government fees associated with applying for an H-2A visa. This fee is paid directly to the US government.
