I'm very new to this, including the idea. No an Expat yet, still iving in Canada but fell in love with Cabarete and am now trying to get things in order across the pond to move out there.
So far I'm planning on coming for three months and hopefully finding a rental close to the beach to really discover the culture and way of living and make a sound decision prior to moving.
1. I'll have 800.00 secure income coming from Canada and am planning on doing some online freelance work to supplement my living expenses while over there. I'm single, 29, don't need anything crazy fancy and would be fine in a bachelor. Not bringing a car so really as far as I know I would just need rent food and internet along with my Canadian phone... will 800.00 be enough to support that?
2. Where do I start with looking for apartments if I;m not there. I'm planning a trip in September to come back for a week and look around at some areas to get an idea of where I would like to live but I really don't know how to secure something over the internet.
3. Anyone have any ideas of how to bring in a small income through online work payable to my Canadian bank account?
4. Do I need any residency stuff done considering I'm technically coming for a three month vacation and then returning to Canada.
Any other suggestions or experiences are more than welcome! Thank in advance.
