Descriptions- EXPAT FILES SHOW #750- FRI, APR 13- (04-13-2018):
#1- Getting residency and a 2nd Passport in Latin America;
That second passport is your “get out of Dodge” free card when things get rough and Uncle Sam puts the hammer down and starts to limit freedom of movement. That’s what always happens when national calamities both natural and man-made strike hard. So today we have quite a few tips and suggestions on how to advance you and your family’s “Plan B”. You must insure your freedom of movement and be able to cover your ass when the SHTF.

#2- Gringos and expats are a highly sought after commodity in Latin countries but here’s the conundrum:
Sure, every Latino knows gringos are more educated, have more money, higher standards, more initiative and create many more jobs and businesses than the locals. The conundrum is, if we are so well thought of and appreciated why is it that Latin governments keep changing the residency application rules, often without notice, making the process harder for gringos thus deterring them, a most valuable commodity?

#3-DYK: unless a gringo has attained permanent residency, he’s not permitted to work legally in his/her new Latin country:
But that doesn’t seem to stop anyone with a good business idea. So today we discuss how to you can work and/or start a business and still remain within the letter of the law… even though you’re prohibited by that same law to do so. Confused yet? Well this is Latin America ya know.
