Currently the H-2B Application process takes 4 to 6 months to complete, is broken up into three steps, and each step is dependent upon the successful completion of the prior step:
1. The filing and processes required with US DOL for Temporary Labor Certification
2. The filing and processes required with US CIS to petition for Nonimmigrant H-2B worker(s)
3. Recruitment of workers, Scheduling of Appointments, DS 160 Application Filing, Logistics (bus, notification of workers, etc.) involved in Consular Processing of Applicants for Visas.
PLEASE NOTE THAT PROCESSES DETAILED ON THIS WEBSITE ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE, AS BOTH THE US GOVERNMENT AND FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS ADJUST FEES, POLICIES AND PROCEDURES ON A CONTINUING BASIS.
