Qualified professionals may apply for a green card.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), 2022 recorded the most significant number of jobs created in U.S. history, with approximately 12 million jobs. And the numbers tend to improve even more in 2023, which in January alone has already pointed out 885,000 new jobs. Among the leading causes of this record is the increase in skilled immigrants in the country.
“The arrival of new immigrants has been encouraged by the U.S. government and is critical to creating jobs and filling many vacancies that require technical knowledge and academic training, such as health, technology, aviation, engineering, logistics, education, etc. Last year, most of the 300,000 green cards available were intended for foreign professionals qualified for their careers, job offers or investment capacity in the country,” said Marcelo Gondim, an immigration lawyer in the U.S.
The record of jobs is excellent news for Brazilian professionals who dream of living and working in the United States. After all, workers and entrepreneurs in Brazil find in the USA the possibility of living in a country that offers more security, quality of life, and opportunity to generate revenue in valuable currency, besides being able to be part of or undertake in the largest consumer market in the world. In this scenario, brazil’s “brain drain” to the U.S. tends to be increasingly constant.
“We have seen an unprecedented exodus of Brazilian professionals and entrepreneurs who have decided to seek better opportunities in the American labor market. In the last ten years, more than 13,000 Brazilians have received the green card and become legal residents in the U.S.,” said Gondim, who is the Founder and Principal Attorney at Gondim Law Corp., a Law Firm in Los Angeles that has already assisted thousands of Brazilians in their green card processes.
