    ...while living off there Online Earnings... I am interested in how it might be possible to move to Thailand. I've been looking at 1 year Visa's, I know other Affiliate's that have moved, I don't think I earn quite enough yet though! Online earnings can be rather fickle!

      Yes and no. I have lived for extended periods in Germany in the past. What made it easy for me is that my Dad lives there, so I was staying with him. The biggest shock I ever got was when I took my British laptop and mobile Internet with me. Just as well it cut out after a few hours' use - the bill at that stage was about three hundred pounds! (Circa five hundred US Dollars) It turned out they were charging me crazy money and I didn't know.

      The biggest dangers of moving to other countries are sometimes the unknown little things like that. Good luck - but be very careful...

      You are talking about extended stay not immigration.

      It is easy as moving up the road except the distances are greater and there is a little more paperwork.  You cannot just move there normally, you should get yourself a job there and carry on your online stuff until it might be able to support you.  Teaching English is the easiest and favourite route.  I teach English in China and I am building my website - the teaching pay is excellent for living here but small if you want to take it outside except for the other southeast Asia countries like Thailand where it is worth comfortably more. With 16 hour weeks and 4 months paid holiday per year there is plenty of time to get the online work done while living in relative luxury.

    Yeah I know what you mean, Internet is a bit of a pain in Thailand unless your a resident I guess you can get better plans. I had a Thai Simcard while I was there on holiday, very cheap for the phone!

    some countries restrict the the amount of investment needed or cap i should say to allow business in ( minimum investment i mean) but since yours is already established and only needs a connection then I think the case would be with the visa issuing embassiy knowing that your clear intent is not to extract GDP from the country but would actually contribute to it( by your spending).Of course if you save it all there'd be no GDP contribution but I think it wouldn't  be problem since their only concern is to protect their GDP outflows..i.e profiting off their citizens and accumulating wealth to be used outside the country... which in your case is the opposite... present it like that..

    I've immigrated and relocated enough times to know the ropes. I wrote an ebook called, "How to Immigrate to Another Country."

    Each country has different immigration laws. Some work on a point system. Others accept people based on income.
