Embassy of the U.S., Tallinn, January 18, 2011
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has just announced that the Department of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Department of State, has compiled a list of fifty three countries whose citizens are eligible to participate in the H-2A and H-2B programs for 2011. Estonia is among the nations eligible under these programs and it stands alongside Japan, Canada, Ireland and dozens of other nations with whom the United State enjoys a strong working relationship.
There are two distinct programs under the H-2 Visa structure: the H-2A program which allows U.S. employers to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary positions within our nation's agricultural sector, and the H-2B program which allows U.S. employers to bring foreign nationals to the United States for temporary positions in other sectors. The newly released list of nations comes into effect starting today.
