The supplemental H-2B visa allocation consists of 23,500 visas available to returning workers who received an H-2B visa or were otherwise granted H-2B status during one of the last three fiscal years. The remaining 11,500 visas, which are exempt from the returning worker requirement, are reserved for nationals of Haiti, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.
MHCA echoes AHCA/NCAL's expressed support for this announcement – especially during this critical time as the long term care industry experiences a historic labor shortage.
