How long can I stay?
Typically the temporary labor certification decides how long you can stay. It may be extended by 1 year. However, if it exceeds 3 years, individual must leave U.S for 3 months before seeking re-admission.
What about my family?
Thankfully we can help with that too!
“Any H-2B worker’s spouse and unmarried children under 21 years of age may seek admission in H-4 nonimmigrant classification. Family members are not eligible for employment in the United States while in H-4 status.”
