Here is a brief description of the business visas that can be used when doing an acquisition
Visa Investisseur (visa E2)
The E2 Investor Visa allows an individual to enter and work inside of the United States based on an investment he or she will be controlling, while inside the United States. This visa must be renewed every other year, but there is no limit to how many times one can renew. Investment must be "substantial." There is no minimum amount, but generally speaking, $100,000 invested in the US is considered enough, when changing from other visas to an E2 visa within the border of US. However, individual situations would vary the outcome. An investor must "contribute" to the US economy.
The E2 visa is a special non-immigrant visa available to nationals of treaty countries entering the US to do the following:
a.) Develop and direct the operations of an enterprise in which they have invested, or are actively in the process of investing a substantial amount of capital;
b.) Invest substantially in an already-established US enterprise;
c.) Develop and direct investments from the treaty country.
The investment should create job opportunities for US workers. While it is preferable to have the U.S. workers hired at the time of application for the treaty investor visa, reasonably achievable projections of jobs that will be created in the future is often sufficient.
