H2B

 

Information about the H2B program

The H2B program is suitable for people who want a work in the USA for up to 10 months a year.

This program is sponsored by the American State, who gives the opportunity to work legally in the USA for a period of maximum 10 months a year.

Our comapny has successfully used the H2Bcompany program for 10 years now. Why? Because the participants work an average of 7 months a year, from spring to fall. For the winter holidays they come back home, enjoy them within their family and in spring they can apply again for the visa and go back to the USA. They go directly to the Employer, having a valid work contract and accommodation provided, at a cost, by their Employer. The payrate is starting with 14$/h, with possibility of overtime (anything exceeding the  40 hours of the weekly working hours), when they are paid better, one time and a half of their regular payrate. Once a participant gets the H2B visa and has respected the dates on his visa, the Embassy interview is much more simple than the first time and he is not counted anymore in the annual limmited H2B visas number. He becomes an H2R (returning worker or returnee). The Embassy admission rate is great for our company, 100% in 2008! ABSOLUTELY NO VISA REFUSAL! In 2009 the rate was 98%. In 2010 the rate was 97%. In 2011 and 2012: 96%. In 2017 was 100%.

Important! The H2B program allows any individual to work in the USA. You do not need to be a student. It is for anybody between 20 and 40 years old.

Every year the payrate increases with 1$/h according to each Employer, and the program cost goes down.

Buna ziua tuturor celor interesati de H2B, contracte in domeniul carausilor de mobila

Dorim sa va anuntam, ca din pacate, epidemia Covid a afectat si acest sector, si deocamdata, in continuare NU se poate aplica pentru viza de munca temporara in acest domeniu! Va rugam sa aveti rabdare si in in acelasi timp incredere, AGENTIA va va anunta cand si cum se vor relua procedurile pt aplicare pt viza H2B.

Ambasada nu proceseaza dosare, decat pt unele exceptii, din sectorul H2B fiind aprobate doar petitiile din sectorul Food Processing!

Va multumim pentru intelegere!
