Where can one move abroad while maintaining a "work from home" position with an American organization? What are the unforeseeable consequences of making such a move?
If you want to be employed in country X, you usually need a working permit in that country. As a rule, not allowed on tourist visa.
You must get employed under the laws of your country of residence. Normally it means that your company from US must open an affiliate, or you open an export company (you export your services).
Unless a special agreement between X and US, your income would be taxed both in X and US.
For this Cambodia is the easy Country to do it in. You can get the work visa at the airport on arival there. Only 2 cities with the internet speed you would need. Very cheap to live there. A good number of expats there who do this. Philippines is a good Country to do this on a long term visa. Renew every 6 months. You can work internet there as long as none is done inside the Philippines. All contacts would need be outside of the Philippines You would need a major city for good internet. Not like were I am with only slow WiFi. Some seem to like Daveo for this work. As long as it is all online work. Check them both out. Philippines has the advantage of most speak English. Keep your pay in a U.S. account. Use your debit card for cash. No tax on money from overseas. You still need to pay U.S. tax on income. Maylasia you need hire 1 helper there.
