Our history

Established in 1996, Emigra Worldwide has grown from a single service center in Houston, Texas to include 14 brick and mortar locations, inclusive of four Regional Service Centers, to manage services to more than 110 locations worldwide. Our continued expansion into territories has been a direct response to the growing demand of our presence in each of these locations by our clients.

In 2006, Emigra formed a legal partnership in with one of the largest business immigration practices in the United States, Ogletree Deakins, to establish Emigra Ogletree Worldwide (“Emigra Ogletree”). By combining the legal experience that our clients require in the United States, with a global framework for professional service delivery, Emigra Ogletree provides clients with a single source for all their worldwide immigration needs with the same high service levels for U.S. and non-U.S. immigration. As the world’s most accessible, responsive, and progressive global immigration service provider, we are internationally recognized for delivering innovative and effective solutions that meet the unique needs of our global clients.
