Green Cards / Sponsorship Visa for Truck Drivers Jobs in USA!
One of the quickest routes to bringing truck driver employees to the U.S. is through the H-2b visa. The H-2B program can be used by employers that demonstrate temporary, seasonal, or peak-load shortage of staff and need of additional workers- this is often the case for our clients in logistics. The H-2B program process typically takes 5 to 8 months to complete. Through this visa type, truck drivers can come to the U.S. and work for up to 9 months in a one-year period with the initial approval. Thereafter, the employee must leave for a period of three months and can come on an H-2B visa again for another 9 months (total of 27 months of employment).Additionally, the employee’s family (spouse and children under 21).
The EB-3 visa is a more permanent solution to bringing drivers to the U.S. Under the EB-3 category, an employer can sponsor the driver to come to the U.S. to work in permanent position (green card). Generally, this process can be completed within 12 to 24 months. Under this category, an employer can petition for a foreign person to come to the U.S. to fill an employment position if the employer was not able to find a suitable employee from the American workforce- something that can very easily be shown for most trucking companies. Additionally, the employee’s family (spouse and children under 21) can also immigrate with the employee. Contact us to discuss your immigration options for truck driver employees.
The world as a whole and the United States specifically are experiencing some of the worst supply chain issues ever. Air and water tranpsortation have run into many obstacles since the onset of the pandemic for a number of different reasons.Our clients in the logistics industry have addressed this shortage through hiring overseas drivers that are ready, willing and able to fill their truck driver positions in the U.S. Specifically, there are two immigration routes that our clients utilize to hire foreign truck drivers: (1) H-2B Visa (Temporary Worker) and (2) EB-3 (Green Card). The H-2B visa process, a temporary visa type, can allow an employer to bring drivers within two to three months. Whereas the EB-3 process, a permanent solution.
ONCE THE COMMERCIAL TRUCK DRIVER ENTERES THE US
either on a temporary H2-B visa or as green card holder, he or she would have to obtain a commercial driving license (CDL). Only drivers from Canada or Mexico might be able to use the CDLs issued by their own countries as the US government recognizes foreign CDLs issued by the federal government of Mexico and the provinces and territories in Canada. The process of obtaining a CDL is expected to be 2-3 weeks in most U.S. states.

Legal Immigration as a Solution
One possible solution to help alleviate some of the driver shortages is to bring qualified foreign workers to the U.S. to cover these jobs. While applying for any immigration benefit to the United States is a complex and potentially long process, the benefits can nonetheless be worth the effort. This is especially true in an environment where a severe shortage of qualified workers means a potentially devastating loss in business opportunities.
Under the EB-3 Employment-Based Permanent Resident category for unskilled workers (requiring less than 2 years training or experience), a U.S. employer can petition to hire a foreign worker in a permanent (Green Card) capacity. To accomplish this, the employer must be able to demonstrate that there are insufficient workers in the United States to fill the roles. The trucking industry is in a potentially unique position with respect to this requirement because its labor shortage is well documented and severe, thus making the argument for needing to look outside the United States for capable workers a strong one.
