have you looked into work visas? it may be more difficult than you can think to actually work there.

 

What are your skills/career? Can you work remotely part time or do some sort of work on your own online?

Would it be possible to work for your DH’s employer?  We live overseas for DH’s job and I have found that that is always the simplist option.  Otherwise, check the schools.  If there is an international school or English program, they may have something for you and can process your work permits. Working on the local economy can be more trouble than it is worth if the permits take a while to come through.

@auroraborealis:  +1 work visas might be a cock-block. i work for a Japanese firm here in the United States. your best bet will be working for the US government or a US company, or for your husband’s company…IF you can get the visa.

you can always tutor children in english! Fiance taught english in korea for several years…he even privately tutored and made quite a good income doing so. just something to look into. in asian countries, it’s very typical for parents to look for private tutoring in english for children!

@auroraborealis:  working on a base may very well be different. your Darling Husband should have a contact that can answer these questions for you. The same person coordinating themove should have this information or be able to direct you who can help you.

@auroraborealis:  i believe that in korea, Fiance put up little fliers around the schools…i’m sure you could leave little fliers around coffee shops or more kid oriented areas?
