Australian Services

Australian clients have unique needs that demand a specialist approach. Nothing says this more than the US special E3 visa which is exclusively available to Australian Nationals.

For over a decade, the lawyers in D&A’s Australia team have helped many Australian clients move to the United States and the United Kingdom through a variety of different visa categories.

US Visa options for an Australian National or resident include the E-3 Visa specifically for Australian nationals, the EB-5 Australia investor visa for investors seeking a fast route to permanent residency (a Green Card); the E-2 Visa for Australians seeking to establish a business in the United States; the Australia working visa; and the L-1 Visa for Australians seeking to expand their existing business.

Davies & Associates is also able to assist Australians with citizenship by investment applications for countries all around the world, including the United Kingdom , Grenada, Montenegro, Turkey, and many more.

Immigration Options for Moving to Australia

As the only developed economy to have grown for 27 consecutive years, Australia offers unparalleled opportunities for high-net-worth individuals. Australia’s economic success has been driven by a diverse industrial base and a highly-educated, multicultural workforce. The country boasts world-leading mining, agriculture and service sectors and more than 40% of the workforce has tertiary education. Australia is culturally diverse and more than 30% of the population was born overseas. The world’s largest island nation has a history of good governance and effective public services, including a strong education sector, which has made Australia the world’s third most popular destination for overseas students.

Significant Investor Visa

Australia offers a Significant Investor Visa to qualifying individuals in exchange for a four-year investment of AUD5 million in a range of Australian funds. An investment in residential real estate cannot be counted toward this type of visa, which can be converted to permanent residency after four years. There are no age limits and applicants are able to pay an additional fee if they have poor English. There are no caps on the numbers of visas available and there are no country quotas. Applicants must be nominated by a state or territory before being invited to apply for the visa, and the applicant should express a genuine intent to live in that state or territory and be economically active in Australia after the visa is converted to permanent residency

The E3 visa is only available to Australian Nationals and has unique requirements. U.S. consulates across Australia maintain different visa processing procedures for visas such as the E-2 visa.

Thanks to them for handling my E2 visa very professionally. I had a study visa from F1 and changed it to E2. I encountered many problems during the application process. Verdie and Etta were very patient in helping me and it took a long time. I highly recommend this place.

Outstanding Immigration Attorney: Highly Recommended! Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ (5/5) I had the pleasure of working with Verdie Atienza and his team at Davies & Associates , a top-notch immigration attorney in the United States. Their professionalism, expertise, and dedication throughout the process were exceptional. With in-depth knowledge of immigration law, they provided accurate advice and addressed all my concerns, instilling confidence. Verdie Atienza and his team meticulously reviewed my documentation and maintained excellent communication, keeping me updated regularly. What sets Davies & Associates apart is their unparalleled attention to detail. Communication with Verdie Atienza and his team in USA and Sukanya Raman in India was always prompt and efficient. They promptly returned my calls and emails, providing regular updates on the progress of my case. This level of responsiveness and transparency significantly reduced my stress levels, as I knew I could rely on their support and guidance throughout the entire process. Their personalized approach, ethical conduct, and genuine care for my success made them an outstanding attorney. I highly recommend Davies & Associates for all your immigration needs.

Getting my E2 Visa was a very in-depth process that took just over a year from when I committed to it, but 8 months from when I found a business I wanted to purchase. The only reason I'm giving 4 and not 5 stars is because the timeframe was a lot longer than expected from the initial information. Aside from the timing, Verdie and his team led me through the Visa process, providing all the guidance I needed to be successful, including advising me on the RIGHT type of Visa to suit my goals. Within the process I purchased a business and the greater Davies team included lawyer Rinat who helped me put the deal together. One of the biggest parts was my Business Plan which created from my info by Ana Ortiz, who did an incredible job. The process is certainly tedious and Verdie & Christina were always there to answer my questions, provide suggestions and advice and ensure I had all the documents I needed to support my application. I appreciated their patience with my questions and their advice and in the end, the application was so thorough the interview process was quick and easy. I highly recommend Davies & Associates and look forward to working with them again when it's time to renew my Visa.

We were in a hurry and Verdie and the team were highly responsive and supportive, even when we threw in some curve balls along the way. We had our visas approved without any issues and felt confident and well prepared for document submissions and the interview. I'd certainly recommend this team for an E2 visa process.
