Thinking about moving to the EU? It’s not easy, we know!
However, some countries are more relaxed than others. One AMAZING thing about the Schengen zone is that once you have access to one country you immediately get access to the entire Schengen area of 26 countries.

The 26 Schengen countries are: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

  1. Any tips on how to do portugal's golden visa via 8-10 hired people path? I see the azores as a good place for tech. I also saw their government offering many salary assistance programs, some good for up to 24 months shouldering a significant chunk of the minimum wage (most are only for 6 months on average though).

    1. Slovakia *by setting up a business
    2. Czech Republic *similar to Slovakia
    3. Lithuania
    4. Spain *aggressive on tax side
    5. Portugal *best option! 2 paths: D7 Visa (retirement path) & Investor Visa

  3. I think I'm going to do my master's in France. There's an ease to naturalization process if you do 2 years in France, I've heard for some it's one year of naturalization, but I've heard for others it's a much longer process and takes them 5 years. Either way, you get a resident visa after 2 years of inexpensive high-quality education while on a student visa that still allows ease of travel in Schengen. I don't know why more people interested in offshore aren't talking about this. I guess it's the French tax system.

  4. Great video. I just read some of the comments and had to laugh. I knew you sounded Canadian. I'm for Canada's capital. Moving to Portugal. How far in advance of planning the actual move do you recommend reaching out to you

  5. As a person who voluntarily turned down opportunity to get Swedish and Dutch citizenship (since I already lived there), I firmly believe that EU citizenship (or non-EU but nordic) is rather liability than asset. Europe (with exception of places like Monaco, Switzerland etc) will slowly turn into full fledged weird mix of communism and rampant corporatism. So as future EU citizen you might find yourself stripped from almost all your wealth if you even dare to quite their citizenship. However, I do love low commitment residency programs like Portugese one. In short term, you might have a lot of fun & profit by living in beautiful places like Portugal. And once bolsheviks start coming after you, you can easily quit (assuming you do it with early red flags). It's not paranoid way of thinking of their citizenship. Unless you have 1M Euro to waste in Malta, you have to spend at least half of decade living in a single country, learn their language, sometimes even prove your social connections there. Then 15 years from there, you might easily find yourself surrounded by bolsheviks (i.e. total 20 years from now). Remember Europe 20 years ago, and where it's now. Especially after COVID-1984?

  6. Michael, very informative videos. Great work, mate!

    Would appreciate it if you could do a video of pathways to residency in Malaysia. Quite a few fellow nomads seem to think it's a good idea to stab a flag there…

  7. This is a pretty good breakdown. Thank you. I personally like Greece and beside other reasons it's more"in the heart" of things rather than Portugal, for example. The citizenship part is not super critical to us too.
    Actually, can you do a video on pros and cons of each of the residency types? E.g. citizenship vs permanent residency vs temporary residency?
