In today’s Podcast From Paris episode, we answer the following readers questions:
– Spending the winter months overseas
“I am a retired single lady from Canada. Where would you suggest spending the winter months?” – Diane M.
– Wiring money from a U.S. bank account to an overseas account
“I am living in France and wanting to wire money from my U.S. account to another bank quickly, preferable an offshore account. How can I do this without being able to leave? Are there safe bank accounts in other countries one could open online? Many thanks.” – Edie S
– Second passports
“Thanks so much for your “6 Strategies For Bulletproofing Your Financial Future” report, which I’ve just received.
A question I continue to have with regard to the use of a second passport is that I am under the impression that one has to use their U.S. passport to leave and return to the United States, yes? If so, then how does the second passport come into play? Does one have to make separate flight arrangements in order to use the alternate passport at the first and last layover country?
A second question I have with regard to use of a second passport has to do with banking. An offshore bank may be open to the alternate passport, but don’t we still have to divulge that we are U.S. citizens, too?
Thanks again for your attention. Be well.” – Natalie T.
– First time real estate investors
“I am a young expat. I have never invested in real estate. Is it okay for a newbie in real estate to have his/her first investment outside of their country of residence? Is it best for a newbie to invest close to where they live? Thanks!” – Amanda H.
