Helpful White Paper Available for Download
Several American Beekeeping Federation (ABF) members have reported having problems obtaining visas for returning H-2A workers. If your returning foreign workers are unable to obtain their visas, you should contact your Congressmen about this problem. Click here for more information on how to contact Congress.
A paper explaining the importance of H-2A workers for beekeepers can be found by clicking here. You can provide this to your employees and send it along with your personal letter or message to Congress. You should include a cover letter summarizing your own need for experienced H-2A workers.
Should you need assistance or have any questions, contact Troy Fore, ABF director of government relations, at 912.427.4018 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
