Benefits You Can Receive

Obtaining an H-2A visa allows foreign nationals to work a temporary or seasonal agriculture job in the United States. In order to begin the process, you must have a standing offer of employment and the employer must meet several requirements. If the requirements are all met, the employer may then petition the U.S. government to bring the foreign worker to the country. Workers with an H-2A visa are allowed to remain in the country for a total of 365 days.

To qualify for H-2A nonimmigrant classification, you must show that:

  • The job that the employer is offering is temporary or seasonal in nature
  • There is not a sufficient amount of U.S. workers who are able, willing, or qualified to do the job
  • The employment of foreign temporary workers will not negatively affect the wages and working conditions of U.S. workers who are at a similar job
  • The visa holder intends to return to his or her home country after the expiration date

Call (337) 214-0670 for your initial case evaluation.

Even though the visa only extends for a relatively short period of time, it does provide numerous benefits to the holder. Qualifying spouses and dependents may be allowed to enter the country and the worker is given unrestricted ingress and egress into the U.S. during the 365 days. In addition to this, visa holders are entitled to prevailing wages, standards of employment, and worker's compensation benefits, as well as certain housing and education benefits for them and their family. In some situations, the H-2A may be extended indefinitely.

  • Thank you all for aiding us in finally having a stress-free life.

    “We we're very nervous about driving 3 hours just to get an attorney but upon arrival we immediately felt comfortable. The estimated process time given to us from this office was 6-9 months and we finished everything before the 9 months which was amazing. Thanks to Ashley, Josue, Maria and Karen we succeeded in getting my husband's Green Card. Our family can finally live in peace knowing we will not he separated. We have felt like these people became part of our family. Nothing about this felt like an attorney on client relationship, everything was personal and very professional and we could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be hiring Ashley again for the removal of conditions for my husband and hopefully my husband decides to do his citizenship so we can again, hire Ashley. Thank you all for aiding us in finally having a stress-free life. God Bless you all! Muchas Gracias por todo. --*The Terrazas family. *Case involved an I-130 + I-485 Adjustment of Status. ”

It has been a pleasure working with you and your staff. If there is anything we still need to do please let us know. Also, know this. If anyone ever says they are in need of immigration assistance within earshot of me, I will immediately and enthusiastically give them your name." *Case involved a Naturalization process for his wife. ”

  • This firm was great!

    “This firm was great! They helped my uncle obtain his green card. The entire staff was extremely helpful and pleasant at all times. We live in Houston and the staff made us feel like at home anytime we had questions. It was a long process but the Attorneys were very hands on and met all of our expectations. If I could rate this higher than 5 stars I would. Thank you so much everyone for all the help, my uncle is extremely thankful and we recommend this firm to everyone, you all are the BEST!”
