h-1 and h-2b program
DOL released public disclosure data files for FY 2009 for Permanent, H-1B and H-2B programs on the DOL Foreign Labor Certification Data Center website. Data released is to assist in H-1B and H-2B applicants.
The data files are available on the FLC Data Center website. Starting April 13, 2023, we will begin accepting petitions for workers for the late second half of FY 2023, requesting employment start dates from May 15, 2023, to Sept. 30, 2023. USCIS is continuing to accept h-1 and h-2b program under the allocation of 20,000 visas set aside for nationals of El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Haiti. The H-2B program allows U.S. employers or U.S. agents who meet specific regulatory requirements to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary nonagricultural jobs. A U.S. employer, or U.S. employer, or U.S. agent as described in the regulations, must file Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, on a prospective worker’s behalf.
