U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the

Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in consultation with the

Department of State (DOS), have announced the list of countries

whose nationals are eligible to participate in the H-2A and H-2B

visa programs in 2019.

For 2019, the agencies have agreed to:

  • Add Mozambique and Samoa to the list of countries eligible to

    participate in the H-2A and H-2B visa programs;

  • Add Paraguay to the list of countries eligible to participate

    in the H-2A visa program;

  • No longer designate Ethiopia and the Philippines as eligible

    countries because they no longer meet the regulatory standards for

    the H-2A and H-2B visa programs; and

  • No longer designate the Dominican Republic as an eligible

    country for the H-2B visa program because it no longer meets the

    regulatory standards for that program.
