On March 7th, 2024, USCIS reached the initial cap of 33,000 H-2B visas available in the “second half” of FY2024 (AKA from April 2024 through October 2024). However, as announced last year, 19,000 visas became available for employers seeking returning H-2B workers starting March 22nd, with an additional 5,000 returning worker visas for employers with start dates between May 15 and September 30th becoming available on April 22nd.

As of March 13, 2024, there were also 16,582 supplemental visas available to employers seeking H-2B workers from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Haiti, Colombia, Ecuador, and Costa Rica. Any employer hoping to snag one of these visas needed to have started the process months ago, but for those who have, hope remains.
