I am flying home to Toronto from Bali in June... I plan to come back to Asia in September, so I'd like to buy a round trip ticket to save money. I don't think I'll come back to Bali though - can someone tell me if it's possible to buy a one way ticket to Bangkok without getting a visa? I would then purchase a round trip ticket leaving Bangkok for Toronto, returning in September. Other possibility is to Singapore instead of Bangkok. Would this be considered a self-transfer?
Not so long ago I read about a company that if youโ€™re a freelancer or do contract work they could โ€œhireโ€ you in the country and take a cut from your contracts to give you a visa and work permite in the country. Not sure if Thailand, Vietnam or Indonesia. Anyone knows anything like this? Or did I just dream about it?
thatโ€™s quite normal.
my company from the US hires safeguard to hire people all over the world they take 10% of the salary
I bet thereโ€™s many small companies in each country doing that.
a friend did the same in Estonia
safeguard sucks balls but it does the job
So you can basically pay a company to hire you and help with your visa? ๐Ÿค”
Not sure about the visa thing but I'm sure everything has a price
yeah I found a few companies for Thailand already. Prices are not that high tbh
10% or fix price?
10,000 Baht/month + taxes and social security for what they said. And no need to pay the full amount for your salary, just the fee + taxes.
so u can send the minimum allowed and pay tax + soc sec for the min?
how much does that go to in total?
Not sure, Waiting for a response to my last email asking that. But the 10k is their fee. Taxes I guess it depends on what salary you decide to give yourself and social is 1%
well, if it comes up below 500USD I guess itโ€™s a good deal if u want to live there
Probably a little more, income tax might be a problem but weโ€™ll see what they come up with.
more than that starts to be a hard to justify I guess
unless u really really want to live there ๐Ÿ˜„
per month I mean
Yeah, not really attractive but was curious about it.
So I would book a return right now I donโ€™t think. Flights are still too volatile.

As for getting home, Iโ€™d book the most direct route home you can. Book it directly with the airline with connections along the way as needed. No self transfers etc. To risky that you might need to clear customs to checkin again etc which may trigger COVID teats/immigration weirdness.
Just my opinion.
Appreciate it, UR69C3P0E. I think you're right, there are a lot of factors at play making travel more difficult. Thanks for sharing.

What's a good option to ride out the summer in asia with (relatively) lower humidity and low costs? Does such a place exist? :sweat_smile:

Also because of COVID and travel restrictions, does X country allow US passport holders in?
Bali
South Korea
Low costs????
Well, I'm particularly ignorant about SK. What cities?
SEA which is cheap is mostly near the tropics so low humidity isn't really a thing.. maybe Russia would be an option for cheap & low humidity
South Korea is surprisingly cheap for a place with such high standards of living. Itโ€™s obviously not as cheap as a place like the Philippines but especially outside of Seoul itโ€™s very affordable. The country is full of mountains so there are lots of places at higher elevations which stay relatively cool and dry in the summer.
If thatโ€™s too expensive and hot for you, maybe check out Mongolia. Extremely cheap and cool in the summer. Actually, summer is kind of the only time anyone goes.
But South Korea is not opened yet?
South Korea never closed to US citizens at any point in the pandemic. Political reasons. You have to do a mandatory 14 day quarantine on arrival at an approved hotel but you can get in even with just a tourist visa, and there are other long-term visa classes still being issued to non-US citizens that arenโ€™t very difficult to qualify for.
Although theyโ€™re maybe going to lift the 2 week quarantine if youโ€™re vaccinated
