Best way to transfer money to Vietnam? P2P?


in Vietnam by @skatkov | 5yr  | 1 comment

My verification on http://currencyfair.com has just been rejected and they removed my account. Just because logged in from Thai IP address to their system.

Showing my passport, saying that iโ€™m a resident of Estonia and iโ€™m nomading around all the time didnโ€™t mae any difference. No explanation, no argumentation, just plain โ€˜we donโ€™t do business with Thailandโ€™ like a robot.

So what would they do if i verified being in different country? Ip discrimination is stupid.

Any other alternatives that work with Asia? There is http://transferwise.com, which only works with India, Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore for now. I was more looking into something that could get me money in Vietnam.

Hey skat,
Why dondโ€™t just pick an ip of the country of your origin/passport (via vpn) and do business with them from there. Maybe you also have a homebase there (Family/Siblings/Friends) to produce any physical mail, or using a forwarder service?
Why should this be stupid. Would this cause any difficulties for you now, or in the long run?
Best, Max

Anyone wants to learn to sail in the Mediterranean? (Sep or Oct)

 

by @viktor | 2h 1 hour ago | 0 comments

I'm thinking about taking a sailing (yachting) course in the Mediterranean Sea this coming September or October. Thus far from my research, it seems that most courses are held in locations with not many digital nomads. My thinking is that it would be more fun to go to a place with like-minded people. Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone else is interested in taking a sailing course in the Mediterranean this fall? If not, do you know a location that offers good sailing courses, where there is also many digital nomads / nomad infrastructure?

Where do you work from in Lisbon? ๐Ÿงณโ˜•

 

in Lisbon, Portugal by @dominiksobe | 2d 2 days ago | 1 comment

Hi everyone,

I am going to move to Lisbon in July and I was wondering where you guys work from? Do you have any recommendations for working on a budget? Any good cafรจs or cheap coworking spaces?

I did some research and found some coworking spaces for > ~ 100โ‚ฌ p. month which is pretty reasonable but too much for me right now.

Thanks!

How to get SMS verifications for banks while traveling?

 

by @jackgopack | 5d 5 days ago | 37 comments

Any suggestions for seamlessly receiving SMS Verifications from US financial institutions and other sites while traveling internationally continuously? Wonโ€™t keep my US Verizon account due to cost and currently plan to use local sims at each destination (T-Mobile and Project Fi are NOT an option as they terminate for continuous roaming). In summation, I wonโ€™t have a US mobile account.

Unless Iโ€™m missing something, which is very possible, this appears to be the single most complex issue Iโ€™ve encountered in my preparations, and one that no one addresses. I would greatly appreciate any possible solution that works 100% of the time. Canโ€™t afford surprises in this regard. Many Thanks! Jack.

Bali to focus on attracting remote workers when the island reopens for tourism


by @levelsio | 13d 12 days ago | 0 comments

When reopening for tourism, Bali says it will focus on attracting remote workers to choose the island as their workplace:

"We will focus on a new pattern of how Bali is not just for leisure, but indeed to work in Bali as well"

Is it possible to become a digital nomad as a Vietnamese citizen?


in Vietnam by @animaniax | 2yr 2 years ago | 3 comments

Hi all!
I was meant to post this little inquiry for some times, and keep skipping due to tight schedule :v.
First off: The name is Toan. Yes, Iโ€™m Vietnamese and non-US/EU citizen :slight_smile:
Second: Is it possible for me to become a full digital nomad?

Iโ€™m aware that itโ€™s never been an easy road. Just wondering how itโ€™d be for non-US/EU citizens like myself.
I have a +5 years background as IT support analyst, with specialties vary from helpdesk technical, Windows OS and system support, IT infra/service management, business analysis fundamental, software project management, to Linux sysadmin and programming (Java/Ruby).
Recently, along with my aims to become DevOps/IT Project Management, I also target to fully independent location, due to new found passions on exploring the world and growing tired of 9-to-6 days.

From what I have observed so far, mates, youโ€™re all/mostly coming from 1st-class nations, either North America, Japan, or Europe. So you have no issues over choosing your path, work remotely or start your own business. While money isnโ€™t really a problem to me (a.k.a I usually require very little accommodation during my backpack travels, only (wireless) internet and clean room, thatโ€™s all), Iโ€™m stuck with the whole visa requirements and other paperwork things. Freelance could be a choice, but I find it is almost impossible finding positions even remotely related with my current skills/expertise. Iโ€™m a non-American, have no EU permitted working visaโ€ฆ Any other options for me? Any idea/suggestion is welcomed.

I donโ€™t need my own business. I only need to strive as IT professional, be able to work anywhere I want.

Thanks for the attention, mates. My apologize if my English is so bad that you have no idea what Iโ€™m writing :v And yes, I understand that all my concerns might sound naive, as Iโ€™m a newbie & only targeting recently.

What's the best way for Canadians to get cash or transfer money in Thailand & SEA?


in Thailand by @artofbryce | 3yr 2 years ago | 5 comments

Weโ€™re setting off on our first venture for new digital nomad life in 20 days!

  • starting in Chiang Mai as our home base
  • 1 year ED visa
  • planning to bounce around all over

Right now, Iโ€™m utterly baffled and confused by trying to figure out how weโ€™re going to be able to get more cash or transfer money from our bank accounts in Canada. Either at all or without getting charged insane fees.

Iโ€™ve looked through the forum and a lot of solutions put forth with no real luck. Hoping that some Canadians may chime in with solutions, experience or advice.

Thanks!

Transfer Money from US Bank to Thai Bank


by @MsAlissa_J | 4yr 4 years ago | 13 comments

Hello! I forgot the pin number to my Wells Fargo ATM card and I canโ€™t withdraw funds. Iโ€™ve tried to initiate a Wire but was told the account has to be active for 180 days.

MoneyGram and Western Union wonโ€™t allow me to transfer money to myself outside of the United States.

Paypal isnโ€™t allowing me to add $ from my linked WF account, because I didnโ€™t create a traveler profile before leaving. So itโ€™s blocked!

Unfortunately, nothing seems to be working and itโ€™s been 5 days. Do you guys have any immediate suggestions?

I would like to hurry up and pay my rent before Friday. Is Transferwise ok? Iโ€™ve heard mixed review.

Thanks :sweat_smile:

Any nomads want to share accommodation in Hanoi?


in Hanoi, Vietnam by @susangaigher | 4yr 4 years ago | 0 comments

Hi there! I will be in Hanoi from 25 March and am looking to rent a room or share an apartment with someone. Probably around the West Lake area. If you have a spot in your place for me or want to team up and look for a place together, send me a message!

Or if anyone wants to grab a beer and show me the ropes that would also be much appreciated.

Cheers!

Are there internet cuts in Da Nang during the rainy season?


in Da Nang, Vietnam by @j0hnlucas | 4yr 4 years ago | 3 comments

I am planning to spend 3 months in Da Nang in September and I donโ€™t really mind the rain but it would suck if there were internet connection cuts, which would make it impossible for me to work? Anyone has any experience with this? Also, does it make sense at all to spend three months there during the rain season? Or should I pick a different location?

How to set up phone service in Vietnam?


in Vietnam by @cr8on2 | 4yr 4 years ago | 1 comment

Headed to Da Nang, Vietnam in my first international digital nomad experiment!

Iโ€™m a noob - whatโ€™s the best way to set up my phone over there.

  • I need to keep my same cell number as I get business calls to it. I canโ€™t afford to miss a call.

  • AT & T is my USA carrier, but heir options are very expensive.

  • Iโ€™ve heard everything from SIM cards to forwarding to a Skype number etc.

Note: If any of you are in Da Nang, Iโ€™d love to meet up!!! LMK.

Thanks in advance for any advice!
