Six Caribbean countries eligible for US visa programme

Petitions for nationals of unlisted countries may be approved ifit is determined to be in the interest of the United States.
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) says six Caribbean countries are among 63 countries worldwide that are eligible to participate in two visa programmes this year.

The H-2A and H-2B Visa programmes allow US employers to bring foreign nationals to the United States to fill temporary agricultural and non-agricultural jobs, respectively.

The USCIS identified the Caribbean countries eligible to participate in the visa programmes as Barbados, Belize, the Dominican Republic, Grenada, Haiti and Jamaica.

Generally, USCIS said it only approves H-2A and H-2B petitions for nationals of countries the Secretary of Homeland Security has designated as eligible to participate in the programmes.  

USCIS also said it may approve H-2A and H-2B petitions for nationals of countries not on the list if it is determined to be in the interest of the United States.

Effective January 18, 2014, USCIS said nationals of the identified Caribbean countries are eligible to participate in the H-2A and H-2B Visa programmes.

It said the notice does not affect the status of beneficiaries who currently are in the United States in H-2A or H-2B status unless they apply to change or extend their status. 

The USCIS said each country’s designation is valid for one year from January 18, 2014.

modern day slavery. If politicians in our islands stop rapping the countries of their assets they wouldn't have our people as servitude servants. JA did this at Gutanemo Bay where citizens were leased to cook and clean. They also leased out people with a company name CINRAM in Huntsville, AL where the people lived in deplorable conditions and when they came to Huntsville they were taken advantage of by CINRAM and a portion of money was paid to the JA government for the cheap help. Modern day slavery and our own black people would not wake up and see the light. Its like they love being treated like sh*t. Willing to kill each other off fast, hug up and embrace the ones who hate us the most and think less of us still. Tyra Banks, Eve, Janet Jackson, and many other black women repeating house slave habits by running back to their masters. SMH. If you don't believe me on what I said about CINRAM look at the virus free link I provided and I even sat and spoke with the Ja's who they leased to come work here.
