I’ve read the thread about living as an expat and it was mostly about tax issues. I’m seeking advice on becoming an expat to seek out opportunities. Specifically, I was thinking about countries like Panama, Costa Rica, Belize…I read in the other thread that Australia had few opportunities and was largely closed to noncitizens. What about NZ?
I’d be interested to hear about any non-Middle Eastern country (except perhaps Israel) that needs good mariners. I am an Able Seafarer- Deck…I have a Mate 1500T Oceans but am unsure of its international validity. I should be getting a Panamanian seafarers book that I paid for from a contract job. I’ve worked mostly offshore and 12 days for a cruise line before that went up in smoke, I need to go where the opportunities are.
