The Trump administration has banned Haitians from applying for temporary visas to work seasonally in the country.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has given notice that Haitians, as well as nationals from Belize and the South Pacific nation of Samoa, are no longer eligible for the  H2A and H2B visas.

The visas allow US businesses to bring in seasonal workers from other countries.

The H2A visa allows seasonal workers for agriculture and the H2B is given to those for non-agricultural work such as resorts.

In the notice published online, DHS said Haitians who have been granted H2A and H2B visas have demonstrated high levels of fraud and abuse and a high rate of overstaying.

The Trump administration also recently ended the temporary protected status for about 60,000 Haitians.
