Beneficiaries of the Labor Mobility Program leave for the U.S. to work on a temporary basis

Written by Evelyn Alas

The salvadoran labor force continues to position itself in companies in the United States, thanks to the Labor Mobility Program promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in coordination with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).



Thus, more salvadorans, benefited with the Labor Mobility Program, will travel to the states of South Carolina, Florida, Massachusetts, Texas, Missouri and West Virginia, where they will work in companies on a temporary basis.


This group of workers will work in the areas of maintenance, cleaning services, fairs and carnivals and hotel cleaning for a period of approximately three to five months.

This initiative is aligned with the Central Government's objectives to facilitate employability opportunities for the salvadoran population; and to provide circular migration options, allowing nationals to move to other territories in a regular, safe and orderly manner, and return to El Salvador in the same way.


To date, this initiative has benefited more than 8 thousand nationals who have provided their services to different U.S. companies, in various productive areas.

As part of the process to be followed, the beneficiaries participated in an informative talk where they were given relevant details about their stay and work commitments.

The beneficiary of this program, Fredy Garcia, expressed that this opportunity will help him in his personal projects such as building his house. "I am excited and grateful because a great job has been done for us to be part of this opportunity".

The requirements to apply are: to be over 18 years of age; to have a complete COVID-19 vaccination schedule; not to have a criminal, police or irregular migration record to the United States, and not to have family members who have not complied with the program's rules.
