best countries for work visa

I don't want or need to know what you make or are doing to make that money though the more info the better. What I want to know from cruisers are what countries have they worked cruising and how hard was it to get a visa.

Thanks

Re: best countries for work visa

In the South Pacific, the company that is hiring you will help you get the work visa. If you are looking for work as a boat maintenance worker, most of that is under the table, and if you get caught, you're in trouble.

That's why I thought some countries must be easier to get a visa in then others. I have heard unless your a spring chicken Australia and New Zealand would be out.

Very difficult in Bermuda. OTOH, prison has great views of the yacht racing.

Re: best countries for work visa

Took me 6 months to get a work permit, and a residence visa for St.Marteen. Employer must do the application. Lots of papers needed with apostle stamps. Wont do it again.
