If you want to travel or work in the USA, you need to obtain a US visa, which gives you legal permission to be in that country legally. The Democratic government led by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is trying to favor legal immigration as much as possible, which is why they announced that they will offer 64,716 H-2B visas for fiscal year 2024. 66,000 visas were already planned, and now they will add another. 64000.
These visas are intended for temporary non-agricultural workers who want to work in sectors such as hospitality, tourism, seafood processing, or landscaping, among other jobs in demand in the United States. Through this program, the government seeks to facilitate legal entry into the country and prevent labor exploitation of foreign workers.
