Alternative to full immigration: Become a PT
« on: February 25, 2009, 06:49:34 pm »

Finally, an update to the FSI site (sorry I haven't been so actively working on it as it seemed I would initially, I tend to work in impulses and that impulse kinda passed, and I have other online projects which are a priority).

So.. the idea is to become a permanent tourist. If you can't immigrate legally and fully then this might be the next best thing, unless you would suffice with the alternative of just staying stale in your old country as their respect for your liberty deteriorates. Becoming a PT is liberating in itself, but by combining your permanent tourism with periodic stays in New Hampshire you kinda get the best of both worlds. You get to see people in NH at least two times a year, participating in events, socializing, cooperating on projects etc. and you get to travel the world, and run a portable business at that.

Anyway, I wrote about it here: http://freestatersinternational.com/tips/become-pt and the idea came from http://sovereignlife.com

This is a "backup plan" I'm seriously considering for myself.

Feel free to share what you think.

Cheers

I'm from France and getting the permanent visa seems quite difficult for me, I'm already a permanent tourist, but I also think that getting the US citizenship is essential for the project...

That would be an excellent way of getting here.  Even if you can only drop by twice a year to help out, you're still doing a lot for liberty, and you get to enjoy the benefits of freedom here in New Hampshire.

Well, while being a voting resident of NH will require you have U.S. citizenship, that WILL throw a wrench in your capacity to act as a PT, since the U.S. taxes citizens regardless of their residency.

To my knowledge under Visa Waiver Program you are not allowed to work. What you can do is to be in USA for three months and that's it. Now if you have the capital to simply be three months at a time then it's great. However if you can actually legally work in the three months.. count me in!

Idea: have a big enough place for two people at the same time to stay in NH for three months with a decent rent. After three months the tenant would change for another three months and so on. This would bring money and people to NH. I would be interested of this type of possibility.
