Visa Programs

Information about The E-2 Investor Visa

An E-2 investor visa permits one to enter and work within the USA with regards to a financial investment that the investor will be managing, which requires their physical presence within the United States. An E-2 investor visa must be renewed every two years.

However, there is no cap on how many times it an E-2 investor visa can be renewed, so long as business relevant to their investments is conducted. These visas are only available to citizens of nations that possess a mutually negotiated treaty of commerce and navigation with the USA, and the investment must be sufficient to start and operate the business as described. UCIS uses a sliding scale to determine this number, so communicate with them prior to applying to avoid disappointment and lost time.

After activities relating to the management of this investment has been completed, E-2 visa holders must either return to their home nation or change their visa status. The holder of an E-2 visa may leave the United States at any time during their period of eligibility, provided that the work they are doing is relevant to the investment they are managing.

Information about The E-3 Investor Visa

Unlike the E-2 visa, the E-3 visa is obtainable only by citizens of Australia. This visa class was brought about by an act of Congress in 2005 as one of the outcomes of trade negotiations between Australia and the United States.

Unlike other classes of work, business and investment visas, spouses of E-3 investment visa holders may pursue employment in the United States without any restrictions placed on those in other visa situations. Like the E-2, the E-3 is renewable in two-year increments and indefinitely, but the application process is much more efficient, making it easy for Australian professionals to seek out gainful employment in the USA.

Information about The EB-5 Investor Visa

Established in the wake of the recession of the early 1990s, the EB-5 investor visa provides a vehicle for foreign investors to obtain a green card for themselves, so long as they invest in the United States and create jobs in the process.

Those pursuing this avenue must invest $1,000,000, or $500,000 in a Targeted Employment Area where high unemployment is 150% above the national average, or in rural areas. The end result of this cash infusion must produce or preserve at least 10 jobs for US citizens, not including themselves or their family.

Permanent residence is granted for two years, on the condition that evidence is submitted within 90 days that the investment has been deployed in full and that 10 jobs have been saved or created, or 10 jobs have been created or will be done so within an imminent time frame.

Please note that our firm does not provide visa services, but that said services can only be provided by professional immigration attorneys subject to your qualification review. View a list of recommended immigration attorneys.

Client Testimonials

“Working with Marc and his company was a pleasure. What I thought was going to be a just another one of those pushy sales companies was just the opposite. Polite, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to talk to and deal with. Marc handled most of the interaction and he has one of the greatest demeanors. Again, it was a pleasure working with him and his firm.”

Douglas DiCeglio

Colby Harris, Co-Owner, Del Mar Designs

“Claus Madsen thoroughly helped us with selling our company. From the 1st introductory meeting explaining to us what was possible, to providing us with resources to assist with the sale. Claus was invaluable throughout the whole sales process. Claus was with us every step of the journey and always made himself available for any questions or issues that came up along the way. If you are interested in selling your business, I encourage you to reach out to Claus and the ANA team so that they can let you know what’s achievable. These guys will make it happen!”

“I wanted to take a second to commend the exemplary customer service from both you [Karin Neumann] and Mr. Valentino. It’s both a rarity in the industry, and very much appreciated.”

Andrew G., Investor

“We worked with Neumann & Associates to investigate the purchase of a research company in 2010 and found Achim to be capable, forthright and realistic. His depth of experience enabled us to fully understand our options, offering creative options that might enable the acquisition. While we didn’t acquire that particular company at that time, we know exactly who to call whenever we’re looking to buy or sell a business.”

Daniel Coates, Buyer

They are VERY thorough in using their time-tested process to calculate the value of investment opportunities, a process which provided a very detailed explanation for the value of the potential opportunity. Additionally, they also went above and beyond to extend other services including connecting with others who specialize in your industry and can assist with necessary steps including legal and accounting. Highly recommended!”

Edward Lane , Business Owner

“I recently contacted A. Neumann and Associates about getting a valuation of my business done. I spoke with Achim, who explained the process in detail. He had his colleague Gary come to my office in order to get a clear understanding of my business, and what I was hoping to accomplish. His patience in answering all my questions and his knowledge of the proper way to market my business gave me great confidence that this is the firm I will be using when the time comes for me to sell my business for max value. They gave me great insight into the steps I need to take now to get the best deal in the future. I highly recommend this firm to anybody who wants to sell now or down the road. They not only know their stuff, their actually just real nice guys.”
