USA Family Visas

Every year thousands of people start a new life in the USA, but what makes the US such a popular destination for immigrants? As the world's largest economy, the US can provide a better quality of life, and offer a wide variety of job opportunities and prospects for career advancement. 

USA Immigration 

Brighter Candidates can advise you on the US Green Card scheme for obtaining permanent residence. Whatever your circumstances, our consultants can guide you through the application process. Just click on the link above to take our free assessment and an adviser will call you to discuss your eligibility for a Green Card.

Here is a summary of the main ways to obtain a Green Card: 

Get a Green Card Through Family

The US allows citizens and permanent residents to petition for certain other residents to gain permanent resident status. In addition, some applicants already living in the US may qualify for adjustment to permanent resident status, allowing them to get a Green Card without returning home. 

Ways to obtain a Green Card through family include:

- Being an immediate relative of a US citizen. This group includes the parents, spouses, or unmarried children under the age of 21, of US citizens.

- Being a family member of a US citizen in a Preference Category. This might include unmarried, or married, sons or daughters (over the age of 21), or siblings of US citizens.

- Being in a special family category. This includes the battered children or spouses of US citizens, and widows/widowers of US citizens.

Green Card Application Through Work

A job or offer of employment can also provide a route to a Green Card. The US employer will often have to apply for certification showing the migrant worker is not occupying a job which could have been done by a US worker. 

Highly skilled workers classified as being of extraordinary ability may be given priority status, and thus allowed to self-petition for permanent resident status. 

Foreign investors may also be able to get a Green Card for USA businesses set up to create jobs. 

Some other special job categories may also allow applicants to obtain Green Cards, including:

  • Afghan/Iraqi translators
  • NATO-6 non-immigrants
  • Panama Canal Employees
  • Religious Workers


Apply for a Green Card as refugee/asylum seeker

Though different rules apply to each, if you were admitted to the US as a refugee, an asylum seeker, or a qualifying family member of an asylum seeker, you can make a Green Card application one year after entry. To find out more, take the Brighter Candidates free assessment.

US Visa

There is no need to worry if you do not qualify for a US Green Card, because you may still qualify for a US visa allowing you to live and work in the country temporarily, and this visa may eventually lead to citizenship. Use the free assessment below to find out if you qualify.

Apart from a Green Card, your US immigration options include US visas for work, family, business and study purposes. Visit our US Visas page for further details.

Applying for a Green Card through Brighter Candidates

The Green Card process also offers opportunities for applicants who meet very specific criteria to do with their nationality, their job or their family. When you apply for Green Card status through Brighter Candidates you can take advantage of our years of experience. Find out further information on our Immigration USA page.

The Journey to the Land of Opportunity

America has long been the number one destination for immigration. The country is known for giving everyone the opportunity to make their own ‘American Dream’ through hard work and determination. Because we have so many years’ experience in helping people move to the USA, we know how to get the very best results for our clients:

“Everyone knows the USA as the land of opportunity, which is why I always wanted to go there. I knew that with the right idea, and a lot of hard work, that I could make my dreams come true. I had just finished my studies in India when I applied to move to the USA through Brighter. I didn’t know quite what to expect and to be honest the idea of immigrating scared and confused me. That was until I spoke to my advisor. She was so understanding and clearly knew all about the routes to US immigration, which she explained to me carefully and in detail. I was told that my application may take quite a while to process, which I was happy with as it gave me time to save up a little bit of money and gain some work experience before moving out there. When the day finally came, I was so excited! When I was flying, I had plenty of time to think about all that had happened and I couldn’t believe Brighter had made it so easy. Their knowledge and advice was vital to my case and without them I don’t know where I would be.”

My experience with Brighter Visas has been wonderful so far. From the day of my assessment to the day of my application to the day of searching for employment, everything has been very smooth. My consultant, Mr. Luke, has been very helpful and accommodating with all my inquiries and needs. He's always available whenever I have questions or when I'm in need of his assistance. He calls me from time-to-time to update me of my case and assures me that everything is going well, which is why I never worry of my application because I'm confident that I am in good hands and in a good team. Brighter Visas also sends e-news letters, which give me more options and knowledge of the employment in my desired country.

I have already recommended Brighter Visas to my friends and would recommend it to my colleagues.

Thank You, Brighter Visas!


The whole experience of using Brighter Visas was very professional and dealt with extremely efficiently, from initial enquiries with Chetan to structuring the application and final outcome with Simin.

I would recommend Brighter to anyone looking to immigrate and in need of an agent.

Many thanks for a pleasant service and great outcome.


The immigration consultant was very knowlegeable and provided me with a regular update on my case. I never imagined it was for real until i got an email that my green card has been approved. At this point, i am more than willingly to recommend Brighter Visas to friends and family members since they truly are the best in rendering professisonal immigration services to people world over.


It is difficult to explain how good it felt when my visa was approved.  Years of dreaming about living overseas out of the smoke.  Then applying to make the move before I got too old with my whole family was so stressful and exciting but also I was very anxious.  I just want to say thanks to the whole team for my visa but most of all for giving me months of free therapy when I needed a little reassurance I was doing the right thing.  

I love my new life and my kids are doing so well in School it is just amazing.
