What The LUSA Residency Program Provides.
Before joining up:
Define your goal.
The first thing we do is find out about your goals. What type of resident visa do you desire? Are you looking for dual citizenship? A temporary work visa? A digital nomad remote work visa? Permanent citizenship? There are a host of options.
Strategize a solution.
Our team gathers the most recent information on residency requirements for the country you are considering. As resident requirements can change often, and without notice, we reconfirm all residency requirements for each client before moving forward. Armed with the most recent residency information, we devise a strategy that will get you the residency status you are looking for. We then explain in detail what will be required from you in order to acquire your desired status. If you are ready to get started, you would then pay our residency program fee to join.
Timing and organization.
All facets of a visa application are interconnected. Several aspects need to be perfectly timed. Often, it's not just if a certain aspect is accomplished, but when. We will help you navigate precarious timing issues.
First things first: Passports.
If you do not have passports for you or your family, and are unfamiliar with the process, we will guide you on how to obtain one.
Assistance with your residency request letter.
Often a country will require a letter that explains the reason as to why you are requesting residency. We can assist you with writing a quality letter.
Guidance with background checks and more.
Most countries require a specific background check, and or fingerprints taken for each adult. Many countries require the background check to be apostilled by the U.S. state department. We will help you understand what you need and how you should go about getting it.

Health certificates, travel insurance and more.

Opening a bank account in a foreign country can be risky, as there are quite a few fraudulent entities that prey on foreigners. We can assist you in finding a reputable bank, and help with the submission of proper paperwork.
Assistance with snags and other frustrations.
It would be nice if the residency process always ran smoothly. It rarely does. LUSA not only provides assistance and direction, we can apply the continued gentle pressure needed to keep the ball rolling within the various bureaucracies involved - something you likely lack the time or inclination to do.
