New H-2A Visa Checklist Tool Available
Author: Scott Stiles, Extension Economist

The H-2A temporary agricultural workers program – often called the H-2A Visa Program – helps farmers fill employment gaps by hiring workers from other countries.

Interest among Arkansas farmers in the H-2A Visa Program has grown in recent years.

The application process for the program can be time-consuming and challenging, with information and parts of the process spread across multiple state and federal agencies.

The USDA has recently added a new online Checklist Tool to assist those participating in the H-2A program.
