Increasing Access to Agricultural H-2A Visas for Guatemala

And CIERTO Can Help You Participate

In the past, H-2A programs have focused primarily on recruiting workers from Mexico, with a smaller footprint in other Central America, countries. According to the Migration Policy Institute, more than 90% of H-2A agricultural visas went to Mexican citizens, while only 2% were awarded to Guatemalen workers.

Working with Northern Triangle federal governments, the Federal Government is taking steps to change this. 

Their goal is to create a recruiting system in the region that provides incentives for improved work conditions, transparency and honesty throughout the guest worker recruitment process, and continuity of supply – while eliminating fraud, deception, and abuse.

Funding for Growers Available

As part of this expansion program, CIERTO has secured funding to offset the increased logistical costs of recruiting Guatemalan workers.

Up to $500 per worker is available for qualified farms who enlist in the program with CIERTO.
