2022 H-2B Visa News (July 12, 2022)

OFLC, July 12, 2022

OFLC Publishes List of Randomized H-2B Applications Submitted July 3-5, 2022, for Employers Seeking H-2B Workers Starting October 1, 2022

To keep the public informed regarding the submission and assignment of H-2B applications for review, the Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) published the Assignment Group(s) for 1,360 H-2B applications covering 29,856 worker positions with a work start date of October 1, 2022. Since the number of the H-2B applications received during the three-day filing window collectively requested fewer worker positions for certification than the number of visas available under the semi-annual visa allotment for the first half of Fiscal Year 2022, all H-2B applications filed within that time period that requested workers starting October 1, 2022, were randomly given a unique number in accordance with OFLC's randomization process and placed into the same group for assignment to analysts for review and processing.
