Florida is the most chosen destination by Brazilians to live and invest.

Immigration is one of the most popular news topics in the USA. In absolute numbers, the United States has a larger immigrant population than any other country: 47 million.

Today, the states of California, Texas, Florida, New York, and New Jersey are home to the largest number of immigrants. Latinos already represent 70% or more of the population in 13 cities in the United States, most of them located in California and Texas. Miami (Florida) also has 70% Hispanics.

A recent survey conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform estimated that 16.8 million foreigners reside illegally in the United States, with California having the highest number of undocumented individuals (1 in 10 workers is undocumented).

Regarding Brazilians, there are approximately over 300,000 just in Florida. One of the most sought-after cities by Brazilians is Orlando, where the Brazilian population is growing every day. Located in a strategic region, besides the theme parks, the city offers good infrastructure, good schools, safety, and various outdoor activities.

According to lawyer Ingrid Domingues McConville, with over 28 years of experience, the city of Orlando is indeed one of the most sought after by families wanting to migrate to the United States. Whether to open a business, practice a profession, or study, Brazilians are choosing Orlando even more than Miami in recent months. However, it is crucial to carefully consider where to immigrate, as a poor choice of city can complicate the immigration process.

With the possibility of business visas, work visas, or through visas for exceptional skills for foreigners with a university degree and proven experience, immigrants can fulfill the dream of living well in the United States. For this, it is unquestionably necessary to work with an experienced immigration lawyer, not just to gather documents and file the application but to guide and direct the client correctly on the best path to take. Each case must be analyzed meticulously, and even the chosen place to live may not be a good choice.

Today, the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) is not making any visa processes easier; on the contrary, they are making it more difficult and scrutinizing each application meticulously, primarily due to the high demand for processes.
