H-2B Slots Still Available

The H-2B category is available to individuals temporarily in the U.S. for seasonal, periodic, or intermittent employment of a non-agricultural nature. The H-2B category is capped at 66,000 per year worldwide with 33,000 available on October 1 and 33,000 available on April 1 of each year. As of 09/11/2009, the USCIS had received 18,134 for the first half of fiscal year 2010 and thus slots remain open. The USCIS has also reopened the 2009 filing period as stated in a previous blog post, but any petitions filed for 2009 must be adjudicated by September 30, 2009, which is the end of the fiscal year (and just around the corner).
