Do Not Get A Retirement Visa


In this report i’ll explain why you should not get a retirement visa for the first three to five years of your international retirement investigate choices for three to five years no matter how much time you’ve spent investigating the best places in the world to retire early cheap you have to go see it with your own eyes before making a final decision you

Simply cannot make a decision without doing an exploratory visit first and even after you see it with your own eyes you may get bored after a few months and want to investigate other nearby cities and countries like right now we are in dumaguete and we are thinking of visiting nearby the city horn island again before we head north investigating other parts of the

Philippines but that is just the philippines what if your perfect paradise is in some other hidden corner of malaysia or thailand or vietnam or indonesia wouldn’t you like to date a few more countries before you marry one what if you spend thousands of dollars setting up a retirement visa and a home only to change your mind a few months or years later when you

Find out more amazing place now i know what you’re thinking that sounds expensive who can afford to travel all over the world before making these decisions but your assumption that seeing more places before making a final decision is much more expensive just as not true let me explain in these retired cheap in paradise countries it’s not unusual to find buses

And trains that transfer you between the cities for 10 to 20 dollars per person that means that if you stay in cheap accommodations and eat cheap food local food is we do the only additional expense is the bus or the train between cities like when we toured vietnam we almost never flew between cities we used buses and trains like now in the philippines we’ve only

Used ferries and minivans in two months between cities we we haven’t flown once between cities in the philippines so assuming that seeing more places before deciding where to sell down is expensive just may not be true it may only cost you another 50 to 100 bucks per month to tour around before making that decision if you slow travel like we do whenever possible

We even travel by land between adjacent countries our bus and ferry between vietnam and cambodia cost about $20 per person even though we were transferring countries and that included the bus the ferry and the agent that helped us get our visa on entry in cambodia so three months in vietnam spending very little transfer and the 20 bucks to transfer to another

Country and then ten bucks between cities in the country it just doesn’t add up that fast sometimes you need to fly into a country to get a preferred visa like thailand requires americans to fly into the country to get the 30 day visa exception but even then the regional flights are really cheap it cost us only about 50 bucks to fly from siem reap to bangkok

The the bus would have been maybe 30 but then we would only got a two-week visa extension exception instead of 30 days so for us it was worth the extra 20 bucks plus we have reports that teach you how to save money on transfers between cities how to save monies at the cities how to save money and transfers between countries and how to save money between regions

Of the world and how to save money and whenever whatever part of the world so many of you need to see more of the world before you confirm your favorite retired chief in paradise location once you’ve seen many of your regional choices you’ll rest more comfortably knowing that you dated a few countries and toured your favorite country before getting married to

One country plus by the time you have to make that decision you will have known enough expats that have already walked your path that you are less likely to stumble walking behind them when going to get your visa in whatever country you’d like to spend more time in a long-term retirement visa documentation can be time intensive retirement visas are a big waste of

Time many countries change their laws every few years and you have to submit more documents and pay more fees some countries make you get documents from your home country to prove you have enough money others require police records proving you’re not a criminal the good news is that many countries required very little or nothing at all like right now we’re in the

Philippines almost nobody we meet here has bothered to get the philippine retirement visa even though many of them have been here for years they just keep getting visa extensions the guy next door to us just gets a six-month visa extension every six months for about two hundred and eighty bucks he has been here for four years so far he visits nearby countries once

A year or so so he doesn’t have to do any visa runs he because if they reset every time you leave and come back they reset the rules so you see when you only read the official government wets website you’d think that things are different so you might apply for a retirement visa before you even come to a country but by waiting and speaking to local expats you’ll

Find out information about the law how the law is actually enforced locally internet information is rarely as complete as local expats will share with you it’s not just the philippines every country has little quirks that you’ll learn when you speak to the local access packs that’s why you should not get a retirement visa your first few years outside of your home

Country just go visit your target retire cheap country along with the countries in the region around it and confirm your decision first then only should you think about getting a retirement visa if you confirm its necessity with the local expats you might find out that you don’t even need to go through the headache of a retirement visa why else should you not

Get your retirement isa too soon retirement visas might be a big waste of money i’ve been to more than one country where the local expats have taught me that the retirement visa is a big waste of money some countries make you deposit thousands of dollars in their country bank to get a retirement visa for example both the philippines and the malaysia’s malaysia

Required tens of thousands of us dollars in their official retirement visa programs but you’ll meet people in both countries that are just doing it another way in fact i only met one person in malaysia who’s bothering with their retirement visa there you should not get so connected to a new country until you have spent at least a year or two on the ground there

And in the surrounding countries you should see the countries in the region before you decide to marry one i thought i loved thailand the most but now i prefer vietnam malaysia and the philippines so i commit to one country until you have dated around plus during the first year or two when you are confirming which country you want to spend the most time in you’re

Likely to find out more quirks in the visa assist the visa system for that country by the way i’m not suggesting you break the law here these are lawful techniques people have figured out over time that you don’t typically see on the embassy web pages not all the lawful techniques are covered in detail on the country visa websites the number of quirks you will

Hear over time if you visit the base facebook expat page for each country and city within and ask questions of the other expats might surprise you let me give you a few examples of stories i’ve heard around the world i’ve heard variations of these in multiple countries student visas 170 year old expat i met got a student visa that lasted three years and he just

Kept studying and renewing the visa just one class at a time no deposit or proof of income was ever required he loved studying the local language and history he never missed class the classes and books were even cheap he was having a great time with it corporate ownership another expat formed a local corporation to buy homes fix them up and sell them he was able

To pay cash for homes that were less than the down payment would have been at his home country he just lived in the places he was fixing up so he had no additional rents he couldn’t own property in his own name in that country without the retirement visa but a local lawyer taught him how to use the corporate structure to own land teaching visas many people come

To teach english and other subjects in various countries around the world business visas many countries issue liberal business visas that allow people to enter and stay in countries for months at a time for various business purposes whether investigating exports or other business-related relationships so i’m suggesting various reasons why you should not deposit

Large sums of money and local banks just to get a retirement visa during the first year or so and why you may never need to during the first few years just go from country to country checking out the best cities follow the visa laws as you go chat and meet with other expats you meet on facebook pages or just walking about for each city and ask questions just use

Local transportation and slow travel around each country and between cities in each country until you pick your favorite place at the putt the same time that you pick your favorite country and city you’ll know whether a retirement visa is the best way for you to arrange your life in paradise or you could just end up like me just keep moving forward loving life
