Panama released a special immigration program about a decade ago – the so-called Panama Friendly Nations Visa. The special program allows citizens from different countries to apply for permanent residency. Obviously, this program is not for everyone, but for those with ties with Panama. There are some requirements in the process, and most of them are economic and professional. Those who are eligible can get a work permit and keep it for as long as they manage to maintain their eligibility for the visa. Before digging deeper, it is important to know that eligible individuals cannot apply for this permanent residency straight away through the program. Instead, they must get a provisional residency first. This type of residency is only...
Many people have considered giving up their U.S. citizenship to avoid paying taxes, but as with many decisions, there are tax consequences. For example, when you renounce your U.S. citizenship, you forever give up the right to use its international privileges, such as the ability to travel outside of North America and get a United States passport. Additionally, if they are deducted, you will lose all federal itemized deductions (state and local-only allowed100% of their standard deduction), including investment interest expenses. Several individuals have decided in recent years to renounce their U.S. citizenship. Many more will follow this decision as they learn more about it, but many complex tax ramifications can occur. Be sure you...

The coronavirus pandemic and how it was handled by the government was one of the main reasons wherefore more, and more Americans ended up searching for solutions to move out of the USA.

These are only two of the most common recent situations. The issue dates for a long period of time, though. Leaving the corporate USA is not something new. In theory, it is quite simple – find a different country and go. As you start getting ready, you realize that it is not as easy as it seems, whether you want...
Ukraine is one of the most discussed countries in the world these days, and unfortunately, not for the best reasons. While most of the world supports Ukraine against the war with Russia, the truth is the country is currently getting destroyed, and lives are lost on both sides. The past decade has seen Ukraine in the news for bad reasons only. First, it was the revolution that removed a president from power. Then, there were protests all over the country. Then, there were all sorts of interactions with Donald Trump, which the world did not really appreciate. Further on, Crimea was annexed by Russia. A few local wars started on the eastern side of the country, and Ukraine soon lost control over those areas, which were recognized as...
Whether you have the money to go on holiday on a regular basis or you travel for business purposes, you probably know already how long it takes to get in and out of an airport – probably the most stressful part of your experience. You need to go in about a couple of hours early, check-in, and get the luggage on the band. Then, you need to wait for the gate to show and spend a bit more time in a queue. The same rule applies when you leave the airport. The situation is even more problematic in the USA. The authorities are extremely protective when it comes to the borders, and waiting times can often exceed an hour, especially in large international airports. Fortunately, the government has agreed that some citizens may not...

If you owe a million-dollar enterprise or any large-scale business, the thought of falling at the hands of the wrong people or authorities must have struck your mind. Take an example of the movies where the hero is fleeing from authorities going rogue after him or hiding from the mafias to save his life; in any case, our hero here will see the first option as fleeing to non-extradition countries. Nobody feels first the need to run away or hide in a new country, but what if you run a business that is termed under criminal offense overnight by the authorities. What would you do if you were a local casino mob millions of dollars? What will be your move in case the government in your country upped the ante on their spying program? Like...
Located in the southern part of Asia, Indonesia may not have the popularity of Thailand, but it is quickly catching up. From many points of view, there are not too many differences between the two cultures, yet each of them has its own identity. Indonesia is the kind of country where you can live in the capital and enjoy access to all kinds of facilities, but also the kind of place where you can take a boat trip from the capital and reach unique beaches, crystal clear waters, and even private islands. This is the type of country where you can easily eat for less than $20 a day, as well as the country where you can get an assistant to drive you around and clean your house for under $200 a month. What can be better than that? To...
Germany is considered one of the central pillars of the European economy. However, as a nation, Germany has seen lots of turmoil. Whether you talk about the tremendous massacre in World wars, cruel dictators running this country on their terms, or genocides, Germany has been through much trouble. These tragedies and not-so-favorable scenarios led to many Germans fleeing from their homeland to safer places. Experts predict that this is undoubtedly one of the many reasons the German government has easy citizenship through the descent program. If you are at least one-quarter German, you can obtain German citizenship no matter how far back in the family tree. It's true, Germany does grant its citizenship to those with a so-called  "German...
Living in the third world implies living in emerging markets and developing countries. To most people in their 20s or 30s, this is usually a phase. They go there for a while to experience what it feels like to be rich, but this is pretty much it. However, once you get used to this lifestyle, living in the third world is no longer a phase.

Monaco is among the most cosmopolitan places in the world – you think about Monaco, and you inevitably associate it with millionaires, supercars, yachts, and models hanging around the beach. From many points of view, this is exactly what it is. Plus, it has literally no crime at all. The country is the most popular among tourists. It has a warm Mediterranean climate, so you can enjoy good weather and lots of beaches for most of the year. But then, the population density means that buildings are tightly packed together, so Monaco does feel extremely crowded. If you are interested in the Monaco lifestyle to move there, you may want to reconsider it – unless you like crowded and chaotic places. There is not too much green around, so...
It is not every single day that you find a country with literally no taxes at all and a citizenship program based on blockchain technology – pretty much like cryptocurrencies. It sounds like a country of the future, but the truth is Liberland is an exception among all other countries out there. Despite not being recognized by any nations out there, Liberland is pushing to change things. It all started with a dream. Baby steps moved things closer and closer until Liberland became an actual place on the map, despite still struggling to claim its place.
