The American Dream – US Visa Service



As Germany's largest service agency for U.S. visa consultation and support, every year the consultants of the American Dream - US Visa Service advise more than 500 companies worldwide and successfully process over 1,800 visa applications.

They help both small and medium-sized companies as well as international corporations obtain U.S. visas for their employees for the purpose of business trips or employee transfers or assignments to the United States. The service agency is not a law firm and therefore they very deliberately offer a much more extensive service that allows direct processing with employees, U.S. authorities, personnel departments, and business sites in the United States. Their service goes far beyond mere file preparation and case processing.

In addition, the visa consultants from The American Dream - US Visa Service are state licensed emigration advisers for the United States (§1 of the AuswSG (German Emigration Protection Act)), making them your go-to professional adviser for trips to the United States.
