Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #1018, FRI, Jan 01 (01-01-21)


The latest Latin American Seminar was scheduled for January 8th thru 14th, 2021. However, just when things were calming down, the “usual suspect’ Cov-Idiot knuckleheads in government along with talking head scientists (in the pockets of big pharma) once again decided to arbitrarily place heavier restrictions on airports and arbitrarily imposing new lockdown restrictions (i.e. Soviet style house arrests). The excuse this time being an imminent so-called 2nd wave. Stay tuned for the new rescheduled dates- estimated to be when US and Latin America airports accept the cheap (1 to 3 dollar) rapid 5 minute paper strip Cov-idiot test that is now used and widely accepted in Asia and Europe.

#7- Get a 100% legal (and well respected) 2nd Country Passport online and in just 60 days!
The Corona virus has killed Latin American and Caribbean Island tourism so tax revenues have dried up. Governments are broke and a small few have reacted by offering passport by investment programs. I have personally vetted the best legit one. Amazingly, you can apply online without wasting time or repeatedly flying back and forth to the country. That’s a first! For details email; and listen to the complete explanation outlined in “The Expat Files” show program aired on June 28, 2020.        
#8- Do you want to get into the exploding Crypto-currency world but don’t feeling quite confident enough to dive in?
