The H-2B temporary non agricultural program permits employers who meet the program requirements to hire nonimmigrant workers to temporarily come to the U.S. and perform non-agricultural services or labor based on the employer’s temporary need. The employer applicant must establish that its need for non-agricultural services or labor is temporary in nature, regardless of whether the underlying job is permanent or temporary.

- Temporary (i.e., nine months or less, except one time occurrences);
- Full-time (i.e., 35 or more hours per week); and
- Non-agricultural employment within a specified area(s) of intended employment.
