Congrats on your marriage.

First thing you'll have to do is send in the petition for your spouse. This is the I-130 and you'll also need to send in 1 G-325A for you and one for her.


Then you will wait. Once the petition is approved, it will go to NVC


Then, the petition will go onto the Brazillian consulate where your wife will apply for the visa. Once the visa is approved, she has 6 months to enter the US and then a green card will be mailed to her.

The process will take about 6 - 10 months. She can visit, however she'll want to bring ties to Brazil to show that she intends to return to Brazil. Entrance is not a guarentee and duration of stay is up to the border agents.

Good luck - start reading those links I gave you
