Our country is wherever we are well off.

—John Milton, 1666


Armed with the knowledge you have gained, by now you are likely formulating

a concrete plan or at least have an idea or two of some potential

plans for going offshore. But, what about that further step? If

you are even toying with the idea of an alternative place to live,

whether part-time, temporarily, or permanently, you will enjoy this

section. You can find detailed information on 95 country options for

a new, a second, or a retirement home.

Some of these countries are better suited than others for expatriating,

but a quick review of them will give you a snapshot of whether

they might be a match for you. A web site address has been included

on each country if you want to explore the possibilities.

Following the 95 country profiles, you will find an invaluable resource

guide to assist you in all things offshore. This section contains

outstanding hands-on sources for solid information; reliable services;

and select financial, investment, and legal contacts. These sources are

vital for considering any offshore plans, whether you wish to bank, invest,

or do business offshore, travel abroad, or consider expatriating.

I have included some excellent reading references, web sites, and

organizations that will offer further insight and enjoyment on topics

such as liberty, freedom, your rights and privacy, current events, modern

times, our political and cultural climate, and the powers that be.

I wish you every success in your quest!



Presently, there are two Economic Citizenship Programs worth discussing.

Both programs are excellent, providing much needed revenue

for these countries, and in turn, much desired alternative

citizenship opportunities for expatriates who have the money to

spend. This is the quickest way to secure foreign citizenship without

the usual lengthy residency periods required before being able to

apply for citizenship in a foreign country. Here is a closer view of

these two Caribbean island nations.


This lush tropical paradise is located between two French islands,

Guadeloupe and Martinique, in the Leeward Islands of the Eastern

Caribbean, and has been an independent nation since 1978. English

is the official language as it was formerly a part of the British empire.

It is a parliamentary democracy and was explored by Christopher

Columbus. The population is approximately 70,000 people, a mix of

Black, mixed Black and European, European, Syrian, and Carib

Amerindian. They have a high literacy rate of 94 percent and very little

crime. The Eastern Caribbean dollar is circulated and is a strong

currency used by many Caribbean countries.

Dominica offers full citizenship for life, complete with their national

passport, which provides for visa-free travel to 90 countries,

without requiring the applicant to make a government-approved investment.

The nonrefundable cash contribution to the government is

the motivation to grant citizenship.

There are two possibilities for obtaining citizenship: the Family

Option and the Single Option. The first plan allows you and your

family to apply together for the single payment of U.S. $100,000. This

includes your children under 18 years of age. Children over this age,

but under 25 years would require an additional U.S. $25,000 each. A

single applicant would pay U.S. $75,000. In addition to these required

fees, there are professional fees and nonrefundable due diligence

fees for each applicant. The processing time is short, only two

to three weeks.

Applicants will be required to visit Dominica to take the Oath

of Citizenship and to attend a personal interview. This is a good

jurisdiction for securing foreign citizenship before relinquishing

your current citizenship, as dual citizenship is permitted and will

not be reported to your government. This is of particular importance

for U.S. citizens, and allows you the window of time you may

need to finalize any unfinished business before renouncing your

present citizenship and deciding the right moment to act.

Reputable local lawyers are officially appointed by the government

to handle applicants for the Economic Citizenship Program.

The process is administered professionally and smoothly, and although

the government has the final word on accepting you as a new

citizen, your chances are excellent for approval.

As a new citizen, you will also benefit from a tax-free status, including

no foreign income tax and no capital gains tax or inheritance

tax. Dominica is also a tax haven.

Applicant document requirements, typical of these programs, include

completion of an application, provision of personal and bank

references, evidence of educational background, a copy of current

travel documents, passport photos, a medical certificate of good

health (including HIV negative), a police certificate showing a clean

record, your birth certificate, and, if applicable, marriage certificate

and/or divorce decree.

Saint Kitts and Nevis

“The Sisters of the Caribbean” are peaceful, tranquil islands, each

adorned with a dormant but scenic volcano and surrounded by sprawling

green sugar cane and banana plantations that meet the azure sea.

Nevis is famous for its natural spas and the “rich and famous” are

known to come here for relaxation and the potential healing properties

of these springs. The islands are notably light on the typical

tourist facilities although they have been “discovered” in the past

decade, and emphasis is on the natural quality of the islands.

Saint Kitts and Nevis are located in the Leeward Islands south of

Anguilla, northwest of Montserrat, and southwest of Antigua and Barbuda.

This constitutional monarchy was explored by Christopher

Columbus and was formerly a part of the United Kingdom, having

gained their independence in 1983. They have a literacy rate of 97

percent and little crime. The 40,000 islanders are predominately

black, with some British, Portuguese, and Lebanese. The official language

is English and the Eastern Caribbean dollar is their currency.

The application for citizenship here covers one family, or a husband,

wife, and two unmarried dependent children. The fee is U.S.

$35,000 for the applicant and an additional U.S. $15,000 per family

member. Additional due diligence and application fees are required,

and the cost varies based on the number of persons who are party to

the application.

Unlike in Dominica, Economic Citizenship Programs in Saint

Kitts and Nevis frequently require a government-approved investment

in the country. In the case of Saint Kitts and Nevis, you will need to invest

a minimum of U.S. $250,000 in real estate; some outstanding developments

are preapproved. This property can be your new home, if

and when you choose to move to the country, or it can be managed as

vacation rental property that will provide you with income.

The application process is similar to Dominica’s, including the required

documentation; a local law firm will handle the procedures.

The time frame is approximately 6 to 12 weeks to complete and be accepted

for citizenship. No personal interview is required so an advance

visit to the country is not required. You will likely want to select

the property yourself, but this can be handled by a local professional

or someone you know acting on your behalf. And, as in Dominica, you

can hold dual citizenship and the Saint Kitts-Nevis government will

not inform your country where you are presently a citizen.

For either of these Economic Citizenship Programs, I recommend

Henley & Partners Inc., with offices in both countries. Refer to “Immigration

Services” in the back of this section.



Remember that Part Four and the Appendix of this book list resources

and information for offshore investors and expatriate services; the

Profiles at the end of Part Three describe tax haven countries. The

wealth of information provided here will complement your search for a

retirement haven or location for temporary or permanent residency.

Also, many of these countries permit a foreigner to own real estate.

The following tourist stay information pertains to U.S. citizens,

together with the maximum length of stay with proper travel documents

acceptable to the visiting country. For travel documents and information

about other requirements including longer stays, call or

visit the country’s U.S. Embassy for more information.

A typical approach to securing permanent residency is to enter a

country on a travel visa, then apply for residency while in the country,

renewing your tourist visa in advance of each time it is about to expire,

until you have satisfied the residency time requirement necessary

to apply for permanent residency.

When seeking permanent residency or citizenship in any foreign

country, it is best and most efficient to engage the services of a local

lawyer with expertise in the area of immigration. In some countries,

especially in places like Latin America, connections can make things

go much smoother and faster.

Always keep in mind the tax consequences of your choices of

countries for living or retiring, just as you would for doing business,

including possible tax treaties that might provide tax relief. You can

obtain IRS Publication 901 U.S. Tax Treaties, which tells whether a

tax treaty exists between the United States and another country offering

a reduced tax rate, or the possibility of a complete exemption

from U.S. taxes for residents of a particular country who are earning

income there. IRS Publication 54, Tax Guide for U.S. Citizens and

Resident Aliens Abroad, tells of tax treaties available to U.S. citizens

and resident aliens with foreign income. You can download the appropriate

publications at Other important tax publications

and forms can be found at this web site. A local professional or a U.S.

international tax planner can give you further advice in these areas.


Tourist Stay: No limit. Can rent or purchase real estate and stay indefinitely.

An ideal expat haven.

Passport/Residency: The first step to immigrating is to secure a “passive” residence

permit good for four years, which grants certain protections

under the law. It takes 25 years before you can get citizenship.

Taxes: No income tax. A tax haven country. Strict bank secrecy.

Embassy: New York, NY. Telephone: (212) 750-8064.

Web Site:

Office of immigration: Andorra la Vella. Telephone: 376 -826222.


Tourist Stay: Visa is not required for business; pleasure up to 60 days.

Passport/Residency: After two years of being accepted as an immigrant, you

will qualify for naturalization, and the entire time need not be spent in

the country. Dual citizenship is acceptable. Excellent passport with

visa-free travel to more than 100 countries including the United States,

a good part of Europe, and most Latin American countries.

Taxes: No income tax on foreign source income. Special exemptions on income

tax for authors and publishers.

Embassy: Washington, DC. Telephone: (202) 238-6460.

Web Site:


Tourist Stay: Visa is not required for tourist stay up to 90 days.

Passport/Residency: Citizenship can be obtained, but on a limited basis, and

requires a large government-approved investment of U.S. two million

dollars minimum. However, permanent residency can be secured if you

have a residence in the country and a minimum annual income of U.S.

$25,000. After five years of residency, you can make application for naturalization.

Excellent expat haven.

Taxes: As a permanent resident, you avoid the high taxes that citizens typically

pay. Strict bank secrecy. A T-7 country.

Embassy: Washington, DC. Telephone: (202) 895-6711.

Web Site:

The Bahamas

Tourist Stay: Up to eight months with proof of U.S. citizenship.

Passport/Residency: Instant permanent residency is touted under “The Bahamas

Investment Promotion Program” for three categories of investors:

(1) Individual Investors, (2) Group Investors, (3) Entrepreneurs. Many

of the “rich and famous” today have chosen the Bahamas as their main

or second residence. The minimum investment category starts at U.S.

$150,000 in a government-approved project. A Bahamas resident alien

passport is obtainable for travel.

Taxes: No income taxes. Formerly an excellent tax haven, but presently best

avoided by U.S. citizens for that purpose.

Embassy: Washington, DC. Telephone: (202) 319-2660.

Web Site:


Tourist Stay: Visa is not required for stay up to 30 days.

Passport/Residency: After living in Belize for one year, you can secure permanent

residency after depositing U.S. $700 with a Belize bank. If you

are over 45 years of age, and have an minimum annual income of U.S.

$24,000, you can qualify for the Qualified Retired Persons Program

(QRP) and receive permanent residency and special tax status.

Taxes: No income tax on foreign source income. Strict bank secrecy. A T-7

tax haven.

Embassy: Washington, DC. Telephone: (202) 332-9636.

Web Site:


Tourist Stay: Visa is not required for stay up to 30 days.

Passport/Residency: It is possible to acquire citizenship for a donation with a

government-recognized “benefactor to Bolivia” of U.S. $25,000, maybe

less, without a personal visit. The casualness of the program has drawn

concern. The donor receives an identity card, driver’s license, and certificate

of citizenship, and is entitled to a five-year passport good for

visa-free travel to most of Europe. Another approach is to make an investment

or buy real estate, which will qualify you for permanent residency

leading to naturalization after five years.

Taxes: No special concessions here, but there are tax-free zones exempting

investors from most Bolivian taxes. Not the best expat haven due to

taxes, especially as a new citizen, but citizenship may be useful to

some people anyway, such as those in need of an alternative country

or stepping-stone.

Embassy: Washington, DC. Telephone: (202) 232-4827/28.

Web Site:


Tourist Stay: Visa is required for stays up to 90 days.

Passport/Residency: You can obtain permanent residency within 60 to 90

days without visiting the country. This gives you the right to enter the

country and receive a national ID card and national banking number,

entitling the holder to stay as long as desired, get a job, or make investments,

the same as citizens. After four years, you will be eligible for naturalization

and the Brazilian passport, with visa-free travel to 130

countries and most of Europe. Dual citizenship is recognized. Expect to

spend approximately U.S. $35,000 in administrative fees. Another option

is to invest a minimum of U.S. $200,000 in the official Economic Investment

Permanent Residence Program. If you marry a Brazilian

citizen, or have a child by one, you are entitled to citizenship in one

year. Brazil is also a backdoor immigration opportunity to Portugal and

the European Union, cutting the time in half to three years.


Taxes: Potential expat country. Taxes are on the high side, but lower than

most developed countries.

Embassy: Washington, DC. Telephone: (202) 238-2828.

Campione (Italy)

Tourist Stay: Visa is not required for tourist or business stay up to 90 days.

Passport/Residency: Located on Lake Lugano in the Swiss canton of Ticino,

Campione is an Italian enclave and is known as the “backdoor to

Switzerland” as it is surrounded by Switzerland and its residents have

certain Swiss entitlements such as Swiss license plates, post office, Swiss

traffic laws, telephone service, and so on. Residents have complete unrestricted

access to Switzerland and Liechtenstein as there are no border

controls, making Campione a very attractive expat and business

haven with easy access to the world’s best banking services. Residency

rights in Campione are attainable by renting or buying a house or apartment.

Real estate is limited and therefore expensive, but in demand,

and is a solid investment.

Taxes: No income taxes and no local taxes. A unique little-known no-tax

haven. Residents are not subject to Swiss double-taxation agreements.

Campione is an attractive tax haven where foreigners can incorporate

a Campione company, use a Swiss address, and avoid high Swiss income

and withholding taxes. This is a good alternative to using a Swiss


Embassy: Washington, DC. Telephone: (202) 328-5500.


Tourist Stay: Visa is not required. Stay of over 180 days will require a visitor’s

record issued at the port of entry.

Passport/Residency: Canada provides a unique opportunity for Americans

and others to expatriate, and offers several methods for gaining

citizenship. For U.S. citizens, it is the least “foreign” country to our

own culture, making it an easy place to visit or live. Canadians are

generally liked and accepted worldwide unlike their U.S. counterparts,

and a Canadian passport provides the holder with a superior

travel document.

Taxes: Canada is one of the best places to live in the world, and even with

high taxes, certain tax benefits attract Americans and others, which is

why it has the highest immigration rate in the world. Expect personal

income taxes between federal and provincial to be around 50 percent.

Hold on, as a qualified immigrant you become eligible for a complete

moratorium on personal income tax for the f irst f ive years that you reside

in Canada. And, even better, no taxes at all if your income is derived

from an offshore source, non-Canadian trust, or foreign

corporation. This is how to avoid U.S. and Canadian income and capital

gains taxes altogether. This strategy frequently utilizes the “Five-

Year Offshore Immigration Trust.” While living in Canada for the

required three-year minimum as an expatriate before becoming a

Canadian citizen, you can exercise the $80,000 loophole. If you cannot

wait that period, you could acquire citizenship quickly through

Dominica or St. Kitts-Nevis, so you can renounce your U.S. citizenship

before applying to Canada to become a qualified immigrant, thereby

effectively eliminating the U.S. tax liability completely while waiting

to become a Canadian citizen. Furthermore, as a Canadian citizen,

there are no federal estate taxes, making Canada a strategy for wealthy

U.S. citizens to avoid giving away more than half their estate to the IRS

and, instead, giving it to their rightful heirs. There are also no taxes

on worldwide income unlike what U.S. citizens experience. There is

another strategy to extend your benefits. Before the full f ive years of

the immigration trust are completed, you can become a lawful resident

of another country (such as the ones described in this book), for

the tie-breaking sixtieth month, and still be able to visit Canada and

the United States for up to six months. As a resident of a foreign country

instead of Canada or the United States, you are then free of taxes

in both countries. If you maintain this new, but temporary status for

18 months, then repeat the process by returning to Canada to establish

residence, you can begin all over again, creating a new immigration

trust and the start of another f ive-year period of tax-free income.

Canadian immigration should be explored with a legal professional

well versed in the strategy outlined here, but it will be worth the time

and expense.

Tourist Stay: Visa is not required for stays up to 90 days.

Passport/Residency: With a minimum U.S. $30,000 investment, citizenship

can be obtained after five years of residence.

Taxes: A promising future and strong free market economy make Chile attractive

for investors in commercial enterprises in remote areas, who receive

exemptions from income taxes and other taxes.

Costa Rica

Tourist Stay: Visa is required for stays up to 90 days.

Passport/Residency: There are two types of residency programs: retired persons

who bring in over U.S. $600 a month from an established retirement

plan for at least five years; or, a person with a guaranteed passive

income from a recognized source of at least U.S. $1,000 a month for the

same period. Dual citizenship is acceptable. The new resident is only required

to spend four months of the year in the country.

Taxes: No tax on foreign source income. Local income taxes are lower than

most developed countries. A tax haven country.

Embassy: Washington, DC. Telephone: (202) 328-6628.

Czech Republic

Tourist Stay: Visa is not required for business and tourist stays up to 90 days.

Visa is required for longer stays or if planning to conduct business and

obtain permanent residency.

Passport/Residency: Not the most attractive expatriate haven, but risktaking

entrepreneurs might like the prospects of starting a business

or being self -employed to exploit new opportunities in this country

that struggles to become progressive. As incentives, they offer

foreigners permanent residency with the right to purchase real

estate and a Czech five-year passport with visa-free travel to most

of Europe, but not the United States. After f ive years, residents can

apply for naturalization. That will get you visa-free to your bank in

Dominican Republic

Tourist Stay: Need proof of citizenship.

Passport/Residency: If residency is desired, a resident visa must be applied

for through your nearest Dominican Republic Consulate, and once

granted, you have 60 days to arrive in the Dominican Republic (D.R.),

at which time you must apply for a provisional residency card with the

Immigration Department. The residency card is for one year and renewable

each year. Permanent residency can lead to naturalization in six

months along with a minimum U.S. $50,000 investment in either real estate

or business. Their passport is not the best for travel as a visa is required

to most countries. But, it is a beautiful country.

Taxes: Residents are taxed on their worldwide income at the rate of 25 percent

for income exceeding U.S. $12,000 a year. Although not a tax

haven, D.R. does have special free zones where an offshore company

can operate free of the local 30 percent corporate income tax for up to

20 years. There is also no foreign source tax under this scenario. A privately

owned offshore banking center is planned, a U.S. $850 million

complex, to serve the capital markets for the Caribbean and the Americas,

including an electronic exchange, the Latin American International

Financial Exchange (LAIFEX). The exchange would like to be

the clearinghouse for settlement of the $3 trillion of Caribbean and

Latin American debt that is traded annually around the world. D.R.

could become an attractive financial hub for the region.

Good retirement haven.

Passport/Residency: Permanent residency can be acquired with a governmentapproved

investment of at least U.S. $25,000 for one applicant. Each dependent

requires investing an additional U.S. $5,000. Citizenship and

passport can be obtained after five years of residency. Dual citizenship is

Tourist Stay: Passport is required for stays up to 90 days.

Passport/Residency: A short two-year residency qualifies you to obtain naturalization.

Two local and reputable sponsors are required to attest to

your good character and standing, so a personal visit is likely in order.

A good lawyer with connections can probably assist, and even speed up

the residency time. Dual citizenship is recognized. At the time of naturalization,

you can even change your name. In most cases, their fiveyear

passport is readily accepted throughout Europe without a visa. As a

Guatemalan citizen and two years of residency in Spain, you could become

naturalized there as well and have dual citizenship even after renouncing

your present citizenship.

Passport/Residency: There are no investment-for-citizenship opportunities in

Ireland. Citizenship by ancestry is possible. A permanent resident can

become a naturalized citizen after five years. And, a foreign national

can marry a person of Irish birth, and qualify for citizenship after three

years. Creative types such as writers, artists, and actors also receive favorable


Taxes: American retirees are obligated to pay Irish taxes at the rate of

26 to 48 percent, but fortunately, you would benefit from the double

taxation agreement with the United States. There are other taxes as

well. Ireland has had some tax incentives, but these will become nonexistent

or passé by 2010 as a result of European Union (EU) pressure.

Once upon a time, Ireland was a tax haven, but has chosen to

divest itself of this status. A retiree could benefit by incorporating an

Irish company to take advantage of various signif icant tax advantages

and engage professional management services to run the operation

while retiring and living the life of landed gentry. For more tax information

regardless of birthplace, and other ethnic Italians can gain citizenship

through lenient procedures. If you are a foreign citizen and

not of Italian origin, a 10 -year residency period is required before naturalization.

Dual citizenship is recognized. Tourist visas are easily renewable

indefinitely if you can show proof of f inancial means. A good

location for offshore investors and financial expats is tax-free Campione,

on Lake Lugano, surrounded by Switzerland. Refer to earlier description.

Passport/Residency: Malta is a favorable expatriate haven and a tax haven.

Permanent residency is granted to foreign nationals who are allowed to

stay or leave at any time, and who bring in the minimum annual income

of U.S. $14,400. Each dependent increases the minimum requirement

by U.S. $2,400. The applicant must also have minimum assets of U.S.

$360,000 outside Malta. As Malta is an EU country, and party to the


Schengen Area agreement, permanent residents are entitled to travel

freely throughout those countries. This lovely, sunny Mediterranean

mecca has seen thousands of years of human history and the Maltese

typically speak f luent English.

Taxes: Permanent residents pay a f lat 15 percent income tax on foreignsource

income brought into Malta. There are numerous double taxation

agreements that may be beneficial.

Monaco an expensive haven, but expats are always welcome. Permanent

residency can be secured if you have a minimum net worth of a half million

greenbacks; with your good name and professional references in

hand, your Monaco lawyer should have you swinging on the Riviera

in no time. Besides the rich and famous, creative types are also drawn

to Monte Carlo. The pivotal point here is the Principality’s relationship

with France. Like Liechtenstein, Monaco has come under attack

from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

(OECD) with accusations of money laundering. Both countries have refused

thus far to concede to outside pressures.

Tourist Stay: Visa not required for tourism/study stay of less than 90 days.

Passport/Residency: Residency is not easy to obtain unless you start a company

that will create local employment. Twelve years of residency can

lead to naturalization. It worked for international financier Marc

Rich, who had a billion reasons to move, and under the right circumstances,

it could be good for you. In his case, he established a legal

presence and off ice in Zug, which is the most favorable canton for

business, and moved important business records and operations

out of the U.S. government’s reach before they aggressively began

pursing him. Later, thanks to President Clinton, he was exonerated of

all charges against him. An easier resident approach would be to reside

in Italy’s enclave Campione on Lake Lugano, described earlier.

For those who still wish to pursue Swiss residency, consult a Swiss


Taxes: Switzerland is not a tax-free haven, but foreign nationals can avoid

local taxes on certain investments. There are many tax treaties in place

with other nations. Companies and banks are legally obliged to withhold

35 percent tax on interest and dividends earned, which can be offset

by a double-taxation agreement, such as the one with the United

States. It is an excellent money and asset haven with the world’s best

banking facilities, and therefore one of my T-7 tax havens.

Turks and Caicos

Tourist Stay: Tourists can stay up to three months with a passport.

Passport/Residency: A Permanent Residency Program, established in 1996,

offers several ways for expatriates who can invest U.S. $250,000 in a

government-approved investment to be entitled to full-time residence.

The costs vary: self -employed pay around U.S. $50,000, skilled workers

U.S. $30,000, retired persons U.S. $15,000, unskilled workers U.S.

$8,000. There is also Business Residency.

Taxes: No taxes. A tax haven country.

Tourist Stay: Contact embassy.

Passport/Residency: Certain businesspeople and investors who make a substantial

investment can get permanent residency which is good for four

years and can lead to naturalization. As for retirees, the United Kingdom

is an attractive place to live, and, if you are over age 59 and have a

minimum annual income of 25,000 sterling pounds with “close U.K.

ties,” you can get permanent residency after four years residence, a

stepping-stone to full U.K. citizenship.

Taxes: High taxes, like those in the United States. With recent developments

in the loss of confidentiality in financial matters, and the aggressive

attitude of the English taxman who is going after offshore

depositors and suspected tax dodgers with a vengeance, England

would not be the best jurisdiction for business, investing, and immigration

purposes. As English businesspeople are again exiting the

country, it is unlikely you will want to take them up on becoming a

“business -investor” or “investor” for the sake of eventually becoming a

U.K. citizen. Many are going to Monte Carlo today. London might

make a good business base for certain purposes, and by incorporating

an English company and having a communication facility there, you

could have a f irst-class presence while operating it unprof itably, an extension

of your offshore operation, and letting the real f low of income

and prof its rest elsewhere, namely in a low- or no-tax haven. There is a

special status exemption worth noting: Citizens of certain nations,

and lawyers, writers, and artists from other countries are encouraged

to do business and seek residency without the requirement of investment

and employment.

Tourist Stay: Visa is not required for tourist or business stay up to 90 days.

Passport/Residency: This country has been a good haven for expatriates and

a fairly easy one in which to obtain permanent residency that leads to

naturalization in three years. The permanent residency process takes

approximately 30 days. The Uruguay passport is good throughout countries

that are party to the Mercosur Agreement. Proven financial self -

support is required.

Taxes: No personal income tax. No currency controls. Passive foreign-source

income exempt for foreign nationals. There are tax-free zones for establishing

or relocating a business.

Most countries allow travelers to stay in their country for a short period

as a guest, for business or pleasure, often without the requirement

of a visa. The length of stay varies by country and whether the trip is

for business or pleasure. A typical length of stay is three months, but it

can be as long as six or eight months, or as short as one month.

Besides the appropriate required travel documents, you may need

to produce a return plane ticket, meet health requirements, such as

immunizations, AIDS/HIV testing, and so on, and be able to show

proof of financial support to stay the intended length.

Foreign entry requirements are imposed by each country and

can be readily obtained by contacting the United States Department

of State in Washington, DC, along with embassy contact information.

Their web site is for more information.

A worthwhile guide for frequent travelers is the Travel Information

Manual (TIM) for $35. It gives foreign entry requirements for

all countries. TIM, PO Box 902, NL-2130EA Hoofdorp, Netherlands.

Web site: www.iata.og/tim/index.

Before leaving the United States, double-check the requirements for

re-entry as requirements may change. Contact the National Passport Information

Center at toll free (877) 487-2778 for more information.

All U.S. citizens returning from the Caribbean, Bermuda,

Panama, Canada, Mexico, Central America, or South America will be

required to have a valid U.S. passport or “other secure document” to

re-enter the United States, effective as follows:

_ As of December 31, 2006, this requirement applies to all air and

sea travel to and from these departure points.

_ As of December 31, 2007, this requirement will be extended to

all land border crossings as well as air and sea travel.

The plan is for the preceding to be in full effect by January 1, 2008.
