Possible Visa Services Interruption

The Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs is currently experiencing technical problems with its visa systems. This issue is not specific to any particular country or visa category. We apologize for the inconvenience and are working urgently to correct the problem and restore full operability. Currently, we are unable to print most immigrant and nonimmigrant visas approved after June 8, 2015. In addition, U.S. embassies and consulates are unable to process new applications submitted on or after June 9, 2015. Individuals with visa interview appointments scheduled for June 22 and 23, 2015, should reschedule their appointments if they submitted a DS-160 online application after June 9, 2015. Appointments can be rescheduled by signing into the existing appointment account and selecting the “reschedule” link or by calling the call center. Individuals who submitted their DS-160 online applications prior to June 9, 2015, should plan to attend their scheduled visa interview appointments. Those with urgent travel should follow the instructions for expedited emergency appointment found on the embassies web site

USCIS to Reopen H-2B Cap for the Second Half of Fiscal Year 2015

On June 5, 2015, USCIS  reopened the congressionally mandated fiscal year (FY) 2015 cap and will accept Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, requesting new H-2B workers with an employment start date between April 1 and September 30, 2015

The H-2B visa program is a work visa intended to help companies who find themselves faced with work shortages due to a surge in the demand for their services or product, or a seasonal need that requires a larger workforce, and which in both circumstances the local workforce is unable or unwilling to meet the labor needs of the company.

Common employers who utilize the H-2B work visa are: Construction companies, landscaping companies, cleaning companies, manufacturing companies, painting companies, pool companies, resorts, hotels, seasonally located business (beaches and mountains), etc

Since there are only 66,000 visas allotted for the whole country for the entire fiscal year, and it takes several months to process the recruiting efforts and applications, employers are smart to plan well ahead of their expected needs.

Not all countries qualify for the H-2B visa.
