How can you work abroad on a Travel Visa?
Posted on December 1, 2018
Working abroad is a fascinating trend in the country now. So is travelling overseas. When the two are merged, it’s a dream come true. However, there are certain decisions to be made beforehand –
- Would you work for yourself, a local company or a company from your home country
- Would you change location very frequently
- Is it a temporary work cum vacation or a permanent escape
Let’s have a look at real-world experiences shared by people who chose the same path.
Working on Travel Visa in Indonesia, Vietnam and New Zealand:
Kathryn Carlson was laid off from her job. It made her make the best decision of life. She travelled to Indonesia, Vietnam and New Zealand with her partner. It was a 10-week trip. Her partner continued with his job remotely. She took up freelance assignments.
She was quoted as saying that it was not difficult for her partner to work from these countries. All he had had to do was take permission from the company CEO. However, their working conditions varied by country. For instance, in New Zealand, free public WiFi was barely available. She didn’t work on her freelance assignments there. On the other hand, in Vietnam, the public WiFi was incredibly fast.
According to Carlson, the following things should be considered while planning such trips:
- Planning and budgeting the trip is very important
- Before setting out, travelers need to figure out the experiences they want to have
- Next, they should fit their work schedule around that
- It is best to keep work separate from the travelling experiences
