About

Setting The Stage

American families, entrepreneurs, and HNWI have become disillusioned with the American Dream. Political polarization, high taxation, gun violence, and anti-abortion laws have pushed droves of wealthy Americans to the brink. With their livelihoods, safety, and rights at stake, Americans are looking overseas for the freedoms in life and in business that they once found in America. The America Outbound Summit has been designed exclusively to connect the wealthy individuals and advisors of HNW American families with overseas providers of investment migration, real estate, tax planning, and wealth planning services.

TESTIMONIALS

TESTIMONIALS

Why the USA?

Why you should attend the America Outbound Summit 2023

  • Reported US renunciations nearly Triple in Q2, 2023 (the US Internal Revenue Service), making the USA the ideal hotbed for investment migration and overseas wealth protection/management provider to the market.
  • SCOTUS abortion decision drives gush of investment migration inquiries.
  • There are nearly 22 mln. millionaires in the U.S., the largest millionaire population in the world (Credit Suisse World Wealth Report).
  • US passport holders have tax on worldwide income, meaning all Americans require tax planning services when migrating or spending significant time abroad. This points to a huge opportunity for providers of tax planning services for Americans.
  • Smart capital are getting their mobility options sorted now; the mass affluent are next.

U.S. Entry Requirements

U.S. Travel Policy

The Administration ended the COVID-19 vaccine requirements for international air travelers at midnight on May 11, 2023, the same day that the COVID-19 public health emergency ended. This means starting May 12, 2023, noncitizen nonimmigrant air passengers no longer need to show proof of being fully vaccinated with an accepted COVID-19 vaccine to board a flight to the United States. For more information, please log on to the webpage of the Department of State.

U.S. visas for foreign citizens travelling to the United States

Generally, a citizen of a foreign country who wishes to enter the United States must first obtain a visa, either a nonimmigrant visa for a temporary stay, or an immigrant visa for permanent residence. Visitor visas are nonimmigrant visas for persons who want to enter the United States temporarily for business (visa category B-1), for tourism (visa category B-2), or for a combination of both purposes (B-1/B-2).

There are several steps to apply for a visa. The order of these steps and how you complete them may vary by U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Please consult the instructions on the U.S. Embassy or Consulate website.

For more information on how to apply for or renew a U.S. tourist visa, please log on the U.S. government’s official website.
