Living Abroad: Tips for Surviving the First Week

Check out our blog for more posts!

Moving to a new place you’re supposed to call home can be tough. Here are some tips for when you don’t know how to start settling in.

Tourist Visas and Living Abroad: What You Need to Know Abroad Visa

If you plan to live abroad for a while, then you usually need a certain type of visa. It depends on the country, and depends on where you are traveling, but most of the time it is a standard requirement.

Forget your visa? You can look at the one-way ticket straight back to your country when you arrive at the airport. So before you go and, hopefully, a few months in advance, start looking for your visa requirements. Bureaucracy can be a well-known complex and terribly frustrating, and, forgetting even the seemingly insignificant details can seriously interfere with your travel plans and end up costing you more money. This, then, is a quick guide to what you need to know about the tourist visa before you pack your bags and say their emotional farewell.

Visas: Your residence permit

A visa is basically an official permit to stay in the chosen country. It can take your passport stamp or a simple bit of paper stuck in the form, and it governs how long you can stay in business and what you can do during your stay. Tourist visas are the most common types of visas available, and are usually the easiest to get hold of. However, there are plenty of other visas available vary from country to country, all that might be in business visas, student visas, work visas, retirement visas, spouse visas and much more.

As your visa

Depending on the country to visit, get hold of their tourist visa can be as simple as turning up at the airport is a nightmare for a marathon, interview, message sending, forging a passport and a number of processes that seem designed to help you off bothering to visit the country, in the first location. It can take two seconds to get a visa when you arrive in the country, and it can also take months. Tourist visa can be completely free, and it can cost an arm and a leg. Sometimes you come into the country and be required to pay a fee for your visa, just walking through the gate for travelers of other nationalities in the world’s problem. It can be terribly frustrating feeling wonderfully smug, depending on which you stand in the queue. So while you may get lucky when you decide to travel to the country in addition to, bothering to find out about visa requirements, it is always a good idea to start your research early.

Tourist Visa Rules General

Tourist visas issued to certain conditions, the most common one is that you are not allowed to engage in certain activities, and the country. This could include working, studying, volunteering, business meetings and more.

Time, the length of the visa as well. Most tourist visas will give you three months, although this varies from country to country, and if you go through the day, then the penalty can range from a wrist slap a trip to the local jail, which is the worst way to finish off your visit to the country.

So where does this leave you if you want to work or study in this country? The obvious solution is to learn about other visas. You may find that a study visa or work visa, you can go, but the problem is that they are often much more difficult to obtain and require much more documentation. For example, a business visa may require proof of work, income, proof of the signature of your employer in the country, proof that You have no criminal record and more. The alternative? Well, many people decide that they intend to enter the country on a tourist visa and work in any case, even though technically it may be illegal. If you work at home customer, then you can not have any problems, but you will still be breaking the law, so you always know that you make your decision.

Upgrade your visa

If you want to spend more than three months, or in time, then you are going to face to get a visa renewed. Each country has different rules and you may find that:
You can renew the visa of the country visiting the immigration office inside the
you have to leave the country and come back with a new visa
You can renew your visa only once, and then you have to leave
You can renew your visa

You need to know about which is the best way the country you are traveling. When I first arrived in Argentina I had to renew their visas every three months, leaving the country, and I became very familiar with the city of Colonia in Uruguay, all-day trip tourists head to the back with a new seal.

Do your research

Always find out about the visa you need before you go and how to go about getting it. Tourist visas are usually the best option in terms of simplicity of the procedure, although some may surprise you, you love a serious threat to safety or the kind of international espionage, until they allow you the privilege of access to their territory.

It can take months, arrange visa, or it may take no time at all. But you never know until you look at it. Just make sure you get the correct visa and you know your position on the rules and what can and can not do, and there, as this will help avoid any unpleasant surprises if you end up living and working there.

Travel Tips: Coping with Language Barriers when you Travel

Sometimes I find myself making more excuses not to do something, than to do it. It’s all unconscious, of course… a combination of worry, self-doubt, fear and/or anxiety. I usually start with “WHAT IF” and end with either, “…I’m not enough” or “…I can’t.”

Sound familiar?

This is a common problem we all go through this at some point, and more often than we think.

18 year old Rayen has a longtime dream to live in and travel Japan. She’s learning Japanese but is worried that it may not be enough to get her around. Here’s what I have to say concerning her question.

Do you have to learn the language of the country before moving there?

No. You don’t have to learn the language at all.

Okay, I know that sounds culturally ignorant to say. But…

Beware of creating obstacles to a dream, where there aren’t any

I personally, think everyone should learn the language of where they live.

But if you’re talking about holding off a long-time dream for that simple sake of worrying you don’t know the language well enough, then I don’t see that as a strong reason to put off plans. I see it as creating an obstacle for your dream, where there is none. (We all do this)

Many times we try to be perfect. We try to have all our bases covered before we make the jump. But it’s not necessary.

Travelers and expats go to Japan on a daily basis, with no knowledge of the Japanese language. They’re convinced they’ll do what they can to survive the language barrier. They don’t see a language barrier as a big enough barrier to keep them from their dreams.

Also, everyone has personal goals, priorities and what they want to get out of their experience in a country. For instance, when I was living in Korea, I met expats from around the world, who had no desire to learn the Korean language, despite the fact they were hoping to live there two or more years. Shocking, right? Like the analogy I made in my last video of “datable vs marriageable countries”… some expats have planned in their heads, a short-termed marriage. So they don’t feel learning a new language will be beneficial to their future in the long run. Would you learn Swahili if you were only going to stay there for two years and never use it again?

*You can’t detour every language barrier or culture shock, because there will always be a new one*

Keep in mind, where ever you go, whether you’ve learned the language or are practicing it, you’re still going to encounter moments of vulnerability and helplessness, because the culture is different. There are always going to be words you don’t know and situations you never prepared for. We think we’ll try to be cool in these situations… it doesn’t happen! Awkward and dopey is how it feels, at best. So have fun with it!

Most think language barriers are going to be stressful. Yeah, they can be. I have posts about my crisises with language barriers and culture shock. I was dramatic! Now looking back on it, it was mostly drama. Nothing was impossible for me and if you can feel playful with it, you’ll find it brings you closer to local people. They know we’re foreign. These battle scars are the things I feel most proud of now. I feel closer to the country than those who just travel it, because I lived it!

Acting like a traveler

If you go to a foreign without having any prior experience with it’s language, you’re going to do whatever it takes to communicate and get your idea across. Especially, if it’s vital.

1. You’re going to mime, draw pictures, point at things… (this is how I got my Korean cellphone plan! I don’t advise it for this situation, by the way)

To be continued on …

Any tips or advice on this topic? Disagree with me? Leave it in the comments.

The website I mentioned for SWAP Canada:

If you’re interesting in studying/working abroad, a great place to start your research is on the Consulate website of the country of your choice for visa and exchange programs with your country. Another good place is student travel agencies that often specialize in these things. If your university offers exchange programs, ask your student advisor.
