Biden administration will make an additional 20,000 seasonal, guest-worker visas available for the winter season for the first time. DHS has previously upped the number of available visas for the summer season, which is among the busiest for bringing in workers, citing labor shortages. Monday’s announcement of 20,000 visas is in addition to the 33,000 visas made available for people employed the first half of the fiscal year, October 1 to March 31. Of the additional visas, 6,500 are reserved for nationals of Haiti, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
