Residence

Residence

With the advancement of the internet and cloud storage technology, we no longer need to be limiting ourselves to work or to provide services in one place. Nowadays, we can complete our work or provide services to our customers through the internet even when we are in different locations. Therefore, many people can now live in different countries, experience life in different countries, and at the same time continue working. In recent years, different countries have launched different long-stay visas, such as working holiday visas, digital nomad visas, membership visas and various long-term residence visas to attract people with these diverse needs. 

Overview

Residence generally refers to temporary resident (visa) status.  Temporary resident status only allows you to stay in that country or territories for a specific time period, with a specified purpose such as visit, work, study, business or retire and may allow you to apply for an extension of stay. However, regardless of how long you have been living in these countries or territories, you may not be eligible to become a permanent resident or citizen, such as Thai Elite, and Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H), Digital Nomad Visa. But, in some countries or territories you may start with temporary resident status and apply to become a permanent resident and/or citizen after you meet the residency requirements such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, BNO Visa, and Golden Visa. Residence is suitable for anyone who would like to stay in a country but not for permanent purposes, people who like to live in various places, couples with no children, retirees, or digital nomads.
