I saw it on immigrations website been called the H2 tourist visa. As asked earlier but not answered do brits have a harder time changing visa status?
It is a B-2 visitors visa. UK citizens have no more difficulties in changing status that anyone else.

It is a B2 visa, but some are best to avoid the temptation of filing for a B2 visa. The reason is that the consular official must presume immigrant intent and it is your responsibility to overcome that presumption. Six months is a long time to stay in the U. S. without support. If unsuccessful in getting the B2 visa in the U.K., you may lose the right to come in on the visa waiver program. Good luck.
