On March 29, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security announced that it would make 30,000 H-2B visas available for previous H-2B workers who have worked in the United States for one or more of the past three fiscal years. Earlier this year, Congress included a provision in the Consolidated Appropriation Act of 2019 (Pub. L. 116-6) that allowed for DHS to release more than 69,000 additional H-2B visas above the 66,000 annual cap. As part of the H-2B Workforce Coalition, ABC has continually advocated for expanding the cap on H-2B workers and enacting meaningful reforms to the H-2B visa program to better address the workforce needs of the construction industry. Details on eligibility and filing requirements will be published on uscis.gov.
