The Highly Coveted H Visas – A Brief Comparison of the H-1, H-2 and H-3 Visas

The H visas are highly coveted, and there are never enough to go around.

The basic difference between these H Visas is that H-1 is for college-educated workers, H-2 is for both college-educated and non-college-educated workers, and the H-3 is for nobody (just kidding, although the H-3 standards are so high, it seems that way). H-3 Visas are for workers who have been invited to participate in a work training program in the U.S.

To recap: H-1 = college-educated worker; H-2 = non-college-educated worker; H-3 = work training program.

So what makes the H Visas similar? They are all TEMPORARY, that is, they are all for temporary stays, and for the H-1 and H-2, they are all of VERY LIMITED NUMBER.

How much time in the U.S. is allowed? For H-1 (college-educated), it’s maximum 6 years. For H-2 (non-college-educated), it’s an aggregate total of 3 years. For the H-3 (work training), it’s a maximum of 2 years.

To recap: H-1 = 6 years; H-2 = 3 years; and H-3 = 2 years.

How many H Visas are available? For H-2 (college-educated, 6 years), there are only 85,000 per year. For H-2 (non-college-educated, 3 years), there are only 66,000. For the H-3 (work training, 2 years), there are an unlimited amount, but it is very difficult to qualify for one.

To recap: H-1 = 85,000; H-2 = 66,000; and H-3 = unlimited but difficult.

That is a brief look at the H Visas. Please contact MIA if you have any further questions about whether you qualify for an H Visa, or whether there may be some other opportunity for you. MIA’s services can be found at http://www.miamivisahelp.com. Please feel free to send an email!
