Addition of Haiti in H-2A and H-2B Visa Participation
In collaboration with other local and national organizations, FANM successfully advocated to add Haiti on the list of countries to the H2-A and H2-B Visa Program. On January 18, 2012, The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in consultation with the Department of State have published a list of 58 countries whose citizens are eligible to participate in the H-2A and H-2B programs for 2012 .
The H-2A visa program allows U.S. employers to bring foreign workers to the U.S to fill temporary agricultural jobs while the H-2B visa program enables U.S. employers to offer employment to foreign nationals for temporary non-agricultural positions.
