SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Expanding its suite of immigration services, Boundless Immigration announced today its acquisition of Bridge, a startup at the forefront of visa application processes for the global workforce. The merger underscores Boundless’ transformative approach to immigration, uniting business leaders and individual immigrant families to provide a holistic solution to the immigration journey, addressing both corporate immigration strategies and the personal challenges faced by the global workforce and their families.
“Our combined vision is clear: streamline the system, eradicate its inefficiencies, and most importantly, elevate the journey of every immigrant worker seeking opportunities in the U.S.," said Xiao Wang, CEO of Boundless Immigration. “Whether it’s assisting an applicant with a travel visa for an interview, supporting the transfer of an H-1B, or shifting from an H-1B to a marriage green card – we’re the first company to recognize that the global workforce is only as effective as the families that drive them, and comprehensive immigration strategies are paramount to innovation in the U.S.”
