I am a programmer working for an employer in the US who is willing to let me work remotely from another country. I would like to travel abroad and visit different countries with my wife and kids. Tourist visas are easy to come by for short time periods, but we want to stay in each country for closer to a year and country hop for a few years, possibly in Europe, Asia, and Central and South America. Because of the extended stays, it's not clear to me what kinds of visas would allow me to do this. I'm not close to retirement age, so a retirement visa doesn't seem like a possibility.
- What type of visas would be best suited for this type of extended tourist type travel?
- Where can I find information about which countries offer extended tourist/visitor visas? or other visa related information for a large number of countries?
- Might it be feasible for me to set up a US LLC to obtain a Business visa to establish my business in a foreign country? If so, what sort of cost range would I expect for this type of visa?
- Does this plan sound feasible (from a visa perspective)? I don't hear of many people doing this, but that could be for a lot of reasons. Are there others that you know of who pull off something similar?
