Hey there everyone,

I am a horse trainer and coach, and am hoping to enter the U.S. as a Temporary Farm Worker and aim for the 3 years, but I'm not exactly sure how it works. Anyone able to explain it better for me?

And is there any way I can extend my stay for the 6 months and work?

Thanks

The Employer's Lawyer sorts it all out.

You just attend the Consulate Interview.

If you want to work as a farm worker, it will fall under the agricultural H-2A visa. However, as soon as you find a sponsor/employer who's willing to employ you and process your immigration work employment and its on your field of specialized work as a horse trainer and coach, it will not be under the H-2A visa, but probably fall under the non agricultural H-2b visa. It does offer a total of 3 years stay, but you have to re-apply every year because of its rule on an increment of 1 year at a time. The re-application can be done inside the US with out you going back to Canada. You have to do a consular processing though first in Canada in order to avail the H-2b visa. There are more important info on the H-2b ..... just gave you a very brief summary of it..

You cannot stay pass six months, let alone work w/o the legal process of immigration, simply put can't work without a legal work authorization.
