But there is always that same old hindrance: How am I going to do that? How to get a permanent visa? How to stay legally in the United States?

We are here to clear up this information for you!

First, it is worth saying that choosing an Immigration Consultancy is the key to make your journey easier and based on law, after all, there is not a “Brazilian way of finding a way round” in the United States, the right thing to do is the right thing!

There are several types of American visas, some for temporary workers, other for permanent workers, some for students, and others for business visits, anyway, there are many opportunities and certainly one of them might be the right one for you!

Visas for temporary workers, students and business normally do not require immigration processes. The category of EB (employment-based) visas, though, offers a Green Card to the applicant and his/her family members, spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21.

The immigration service website ( brings all types of information on visas for permanent workers and other visas, the team of professionals of the Xplore Immigration Law Firm is ready to help you to prepare your documents and to check if you meet the eligibility requirements.

The first preference in terms of U.S. permanent visa, based on employment and professional experience, is the Employment Based Visa, commonly known as EB-1.
