    by /u/StrangeMaintenance6 on January 25, 2022 at 10:51 pm

    Anyone recently applied for/or contacted the Mexican Consulate / Embassy, in London, about a Temporary Visa?

  • Which country in the Americas (timezone CT ± 4) is easy to emigrate to?
    by /u/xtracto on January 25, 2022 at 8:43 pm

    So I am a Mexican living in Meixco who is looking to move out of my country (because of the deplorable insecurity). I currently have a full time, 100% remote and paying pretty good for US standards (meaning I could live comfortably in the US). Now, from what I’ve seen in the US and Canada, you need a job offer to get a work visa (or a TN visa in the case of the USMCA or NAFTA2.0). But given that I already have a job, that pays me in Mexico, I don’t think I would be accepted for a long(ish) time. That leaves me Central and South America. Does anyone have experience emigrating somewhere there without a job in said country? Is there any (not too bad) country that will let you immigrate at least temporarily showing good income? submitted by /u/xtracto [link] [comments]

  • 30 Perfect Gifts for Travelers (Who Can’t Travel Right Now) in 2020
    by Richelle on November 11, 2020 at 6:18 am

    Travelers can be some of the hardest people to shop for. How do you buy gifts for people who prioritize experiences over “things”? A few Christmases ago, I made the mistake of saying I wanted some candles for my apartment in China, and I ended up with no less than 8 candles as gifts. Trust me, trying to make weight with a bunch of perfumed glass bricks in my bag wasn’t easy. Whoopsies!
