Svalbard

Postby Cornfed » Sat Apr 19, 2014 8:58 am

For a few years it has been my ambition to spend some time there, as it seems like an interesting place to watch the world turn to crap:

The only problem is that it appears to be something of a company town where you have to have a pre-existing job to stay for any length of time. Does anyone know about the place or whether there are any jobs for English speakers teaching English or hunting seals or whatever?

You do need to show income or job to enter. The place is FULL of Thais, especially Thai women. So teaching English is probably realistic. If there's not a school, maybe you could create one, since you are an establshed English teacher.

It's dark all winter, so go now.

Probably a LOT more opportunities once you get in.

After 2 years there, you get Norwegian residency, which means you have a Schengen visa without the EU thought control about queers, Holohoax etc.

A REAL cool move.

Oh and they DO have hunting. Easy way is to rent a hunting rifle while youre there. Not sure what animals you hunt.

PS Best info is on the website of the Norwegian consulate in Thailand.

Why on Earth is the place full of Thais?

Odd, there are some Thais is Svalbard. I wonder what they do there. This article makes it seem like a good place to go, but the job issue seems rather daunting:
