Legal Process

Types of Visas


There are several types of Visas that allow entry for work into the United States. Many recruiting and placement companies only offer one avenue of entry into the United States. However, at Bonacare, we help nurses to get a Permanent Residency (Green Card) to work in the States.


Permanent Residency (Green Card): With visa type E3, healthcare professionals can get a Green Card to work in US. Nurses are pre-qualified under existing United States labor laws to immigrate to work in the health care industry. The process for obtaining a green card can take several years. However, the expert representation Bonacare has retained, as well as the processes we put into place, will expedite this procedure for our clients.
