How do you deal with “proof of address” for banking and investing and other random stuff?


by @eljaques | 9mo  | 6 comments

How do you guys deal with the dreaded “proof of address” for banking and investing and other random stuff?

I don’ have the option to have a family member do this for me, sadly (not wanting to use that country as residence for tax implications).

This has to be a pretty regular problem for most who aren’t doing the old timey “live in one place and pay bills there forever” thing. Suggestions? Services? Hacks? Workarounds?

Revolut allows a 3 month working space rental too. They have details on the help page.

i’ve had the same problem (and still do have it in terms of banking itself) and solved it by asking someone to register a landline phone in my name by making the power of attorney through my country’s embassy and sending it by post to that person.
In terms of banking itself - just using cryptos and cashing it out according to the currently available options. if no bank account - still can do it through p2p exchange. This way no bank can mess up with your finances anyhow significantly.

I’m still tax resident in my home country, all my bank accounts are there too, I’ve lived in several other countries. Are you tax resident somewhere? Why not just bank there?

More complicated than that. Traveling to tax residency a pain, need banking and brokerage accounts in various places, tax reporting & liabilities, etc.

Have considered all the obvious “simple” ideas already like “just use relatives” or “just bank at home” - which aren’t options for me.

You can still use a relative for banking etc. Tax residency is more complicated. I am.currently in Taiwan but have bank accounts in the UK. That by itself doesn’t trigger UK tax residency.

Anybody bring their car to Mexico instead of flying?


in Mexico by @digitaldiva | 12h 12 hours ago | 3 comments

I’m curious whether anyone drove to Mexico instead of flying and used their car down there. I’ve heard bad stories of people driving down there but not sure I believe them. How safe is it to drive through rural areas, and to park in cities? It would be cool to have the car to explore while there.

Are restaurants, cafes and malls working in Mexico City taking into account COVID situation?

 

in Mexico by @thateverdmitriy | 1d 1 day ago | 1 comment

I am planning to travel to Mexico City next weekend and stay for 7-10 days there. I wonder if cafes, stores and other places like these work? And if cafes work, do they work as usual or only for take away&delivery? Will be very thankful if someone can help here.

Which EU country doesn't charge social security for freelancers


in Luxembourg by @colin_o_keeffe | 2d 2 days ago | 1 comment

As far as I'm aware Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium charge both sides (employee and employer) of the statutory social security pension if you are a freelancer. Are there countries that don't make this a requirement? It is crippling having to pay out upwards of 19% of your income into a state pension.

Is anyone travelling right now?


by @viktor | 13d 13 days ago | 2 comments

Winter is coming and I’m feeling the ache of travelling after being stuck in the same place since the Pandemic started. Wondering if anyone is travelling right now? If so, where are you currently located and how is the situation where you are?

How to find accomodation in Las Palmas, Canary Islands


in Las Palmas, Spain by @philippg | 18d 17 days ago | 0 comments

Hi, we are trying to find a house to rent for 2-3 persons near Las Palmas for 4-5 months at the moment and it seems to be almost impossible except through Airbnb which is super expensive. Any advises or local contacts?

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay in Portugal?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 30d 29 days ago | 4 comments

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

How do I get Travel/Medical Insurance for Portugal for visa application from Australia?


in Portugal by @jonathanpoh | 1mo 1 month ago | 5 comments

I'm preparing my Portuguese D7 long-term visa application and one of the required documents is proof of travel insurance with medical coverage. However, as an Australian citizen, if put that as my country of residence in many travel insurance companies' quick quote forms, I'm unable to get ANY insurance coverage at all because of the current travel ban out of Australia, and the Australian govt's 'Do Not Travel' advice to ALL countries. I know that Aussies are applying for, and successfully getting visas from the Portuguese Consulate here, so where and how are they fulfilling this insurance requirement if insurers aren't selling any coverage? Does anybody know or have any ideas?

Video chat coworking solutions?


in Brazil by @essentiallyint | 1mo 1 month ago | 2 comments

I am new to working out of coworking spaces. My business entails a lot of video conferences. I haven't chosen a specific coworking space yet but generally, what are the potential solutions for this? I have a microphone and headphones but still fell like it may be inconsiderate to take the calls anywhere in the coworking space. For a solo person, what are some general solutions? Are there usually options to rent a private room by the hour with just enough room to set up my microphone and laptop? Sidenote: any coworking space recommendations in Florianapolis, Brazil would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

How can you avoid foreign banking, ATM, and transaction fees?

 

by @danielgenser | 5yr 4 years ago | 52 comments

What’s the latest on how to avoid ATM/bank/foreign transaction fees? How do you keep track of money spent when you’re never quite sure of the exact exchange rate? I normally use YNAB to keep on top of my budget here at home, but I’m dreading keeping tabs on all the minute foreign transaction adjustments abroad…

I’m looking at this to check out some of the banking options: http://thepointsguy.com/2014/02/the-top-11-checking-accounts-for-avoiding-foreign-atm-fees/

Have you used any of these?
