USCIS announced that it has received enough petitions to reach the cap for the additional 16,000 H-2B visas made available for returning workers only. The agency continues to accept petitions for H-2B nonimmigrant workers for the additional 6,000 visas allotted for nationals of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Petitioners whose workers were not selected for the returning worker allotment are encouraged to refile for workers from the Northern Triangle countries while that visa allotment remain available. The final date for filing petitions requesting Northern Triangle nationals who are exempt from the returning worker requirement is July 8, 2021.
