I previously worked for a large multi-national and have begun freelancing. I'm a software developer that works in a very in demand, popular enterprise product. I speak nationally at conference and I'm recognized as a "leader" in the field. In any case I always wanted to consult and travel the world. I often find a lot of lucrative contract jobs mostly in London, but other large cities in the EU. These are often short-term, realistically can I use this to fund my travel? What's the best way to do this and will employers hire an American? [more inside]
I'd like to turn my Finnish tourist visa into a temporary residence permit, and I don't know how. [more inside]
My family and I would like to spend an extended time (5-6 months or more) in Europe. My wife is a US/Canadian citizen (the rest of us are Dutch citizens), and that seems to present a problem if we want to stay more than 90 days, which is the maximum length of Schengen tourist status. I'm not getting very far trying to figure out if and how that time can be extended. The process seems to vary from country to country. We're pretty flexible about which countries we stay in, so which countries make this relatively easy and cheap? [more inside]
I don't technically live in the US anymore; I've sold my house, dropped my auto insurance, etc, and I need to figure out how to deal with my US bank accounts. [more inside]
I've overstayed my tourist visa in Europe and need to know the best airport to fly out of. [more inside]
Moving to the E.U.: I am an American getting married to an E.U. citizen (Spanish, if that helps) and after much discussion she'd like to stay in the E.U. and live there with me. I'm happy with that. I've even got a potential job offer. Help me with the logistics of how this happens. [more inside]
Duel US and UK citizen studying in Paris... should I be getting a student visa or a residence permit? [more inside]
How difficult would it be for a nineteen year old with one year of college, moderate work experience, a TEFL certificate and little to no European language ability to get a temporary work visa in the EU? I'm thinking Germany, specifically. I've checked out this thread, but that seems to pertain mostly to becomig a citizen. I'm not looking to become naturalized or anything (though that would be nice), just find a menial job to support myself for six months or less. Note: I'm willing to accept "impossible" as an answer.
