Guam has agreed to let in more than 350 workers from the Philippines, easing concerns of a labour shortage after a US-imposed ban.
On Monday, the Guam governor's office said it had approved H-2B visas for 355 workers for projects on the island.
In January, the US placed a one-year ban on H-2B workers from the Philippines over human trafficking concerns.
The Guam Daily Post reported three contractors were able to secure exemptions because their projects were related to a military build-up.
Governor Lou Leon Guerrero said other contractors should petition for H-2B workers.
