H-2A Application Reminders
Homeland Security continues to issue Request for Evidence (RFE) on H-2A employers that are LLCs or Incorporated businesses. This delays the approval of your application sometimes up to 3 weeks. The only way to reduce the risk of this from happening is for you to do the following.

The name and address on your application must be identical to what is listed with the Secretary of State, Dun & Bradstreet, & your Workers’ Comp Insurance. Also, if you maintain a hemp license, it must read the same as your H-2A application. Your crop locations on your hemp license must also be included in your H-2A application.
