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

“I had been in touch with Karin and Gary from A Neumann & Associates regarding some opportunities and was looking forward to meeting with them. Hence, when they organized a seminar in Princeton, NJ, I was quick to sign up. The seminar was very informative as the team walked the attendees through various scenarios and referenced real life buying/selling situations they had been through. The sessions by Gary, Karin and Achim were crisp and focused and brought clarity to potential seller and buyers. I strongly recommend the team and look forward to continue working with them.”

Gaurav Tyagi

“Thank you for your Event on "How to value, Sell, and Buy A Business for Maximum Profit" and the insight into ANA’s approach on what is involved in the Business Exit for sellers. Garys Hervieiou's "Business Valuation", Achim's "Deal structure" presentation and Karin’s "Preparing the Package" are real street knowledge shared. They answered attendees questions which makes it more interesting for learning from others. Great for small businesses like us. The presentations were totally worth our time and travel for the event to Princeton, NJ from Rockville MD. Ravi Bhutani, President, CIPS”

“Gary, this is to thank you for an excellent job done in selling our business.

“Your vetting is simply outstanding, among the best I've seen from a broker.”

Eric H., Investor

“I recently contacted A. Neumann and Associates about getting a valuation of my business done. I spoke with Marc, who explained the process in detail. After meeting with Marc 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 to sell my business for max value. Working with Marc at A Neumann & Associates was very easy and professional. I did not know all that was going to be involved in selling my business but they helped me through the process. 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. I highly recommend this firm to anybody who wants to sell now or down the road. Marc not only knows his stuff, but actually is a real nice guy.”

“Claus out of Florida helped us with the sale of our business. We had never done anything like this and him and his team walked us through the process from start to finish. We had some challenges through the process and Claus continued to show up even in the difficult conversations.”

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!”
