About Us

For a myriad of reasons, more Americans are seeking to expand their resident options by obtaining dual residencies, working remotely, retiring abroad, or simply leaving the United States entirely.  While adding to or altering your residency in quite possible, it is not a simple.  It can be a complex and tedious task that can often take years to complete.  Each country has its own set of requirements and regulations that must be precisely followed.  In many cases, requirements are unclear or difficult to decipher.  Language barriers abound.  No two country's policies are the same.

To assure success, what is needed is a partner that has the knowledge and experience to help your obtain your residency goal.  Someone that can take you from the start of the process and stay with you until you reach the finish line.  This is what we do.

Imagine an entire team working toward your success.

At LUSA, we do things differently.  We reject the single "case worker" business model.  Rather, LUSA utilizes an innovative, team coordination technology.  It is designed to bring about one goal: Getting you the residency you desire.

Our technology precisely communicates to each team member exactly where you are in your residency journey and what needs to be done next.  Everyone you speak to at LUSA is very much on top of your specific circumstance.  You never need to bring anyone "up to speed".  All hands are on deck.  The LUSA concept is the most sophisticated and organized methodology for getting a new residency or citizenship, ever established.

Every one of our core team members has been through the process you are about to embark on.  In addition, we are in touch with consulates, banks, and countless expats around the world, keeping our finger firmly on the pulse of an ever-changing process.


LUSA's roots are firmly embedded in insurance.  For over 25 years, our parent and satellite corporations have been helping Americans protect their businesses, families, and assets.  By precisely matching needs with the right business, group, life, health, accident, indemnity, annuity, international medical, or international travel policy, we have helped untold thousands of Americans better prepare for and protect their future.  Finding and providing the right services to protect American families is in our DNA.
