Here are the questions addressed in today’s episode:
– Can I open an overseas bank account and withdraw in local currency?
“Kathleen, is it possible to open an account at a foreign bank with an office in the United States, put money into it, lump sum or over time, and then when you get to the country of the foreign bank, withdraw the money in the local currency? Does this depend on the bank’s rules? Are there U.S. rules governing this practice?” – Jim H.
– Panama residency visa requirements
“Once a permanent residency visa is obtained in Panama, is it a requirement for citizenship that one must reside in Panama for a minimum of six months/year for five years?” – James A.
– If I move to another country, can I drive on my U.S. driver’s license?
“If I move to another country and am living there full time, can I drive on my U.S. driver’s license?” – Maggie F.
– The metric system…
“Kathleen, I have been enjoying the interesting articles I receive from you. I am quite interested in many destinations around the globe. I can’t help, though, but be just a touch annoyed that you only refer to temperatures in Fahrenheit and measurements in miles and feet.
As I’m sure you are aware, there are currently only three countries in the world that are not using the metric system, Burma, Liberia, and the United States.
Those of us in the remaining 193 countries would be thankful to be able to read and enjoy said articles without having to constantly stop reading to do a metric conversion.” – Glenn M.
