USCIS Reached Cap for Additional Returning Worker H-2B Visas

USCIS announced that it received enough petitions to reach the cap for the additional 20,716 H-2B visas for returning workers for the first half of FY 2024, with a start date before March 31, 2024.

USCIS is still accepting petitions for H-2B workers with start dates on or before March 31 for the additional 20,000 visas made available for nationals of ​​El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Haiti, Colombia, Ecuador, and Costa Rica.

USCIS encourages petitioners with start dates on or before March 31 who were not accepted for returning worker allocations to file under country-specific allocations while visas remain available.
