🦘 Prison break, or solving life like a developer️

The origin story

The Relocation Project

  • legal right to live and work in Europe for a year
  • a reliable source of income for a year
  • a way to leave Australia

💸 A reliable source of income for a year

  • hey Jon, I’m going crazy in this corona madness. What do you think if I move to Europe and will work fully remote for a year from the opposite timezone?
  • of course, no problem, what do you need?

🇪🇺 Legal right to live and work in Europe for a year

  • they give residency permit that allows staying in Malta for at least one year, with the opportunity to extend
  • English is widely spoken, so no communication difficulties
  • it’s in the Schengen zone, which means unrestricted travel to 25 countries for a year
  • no double income taxes
  • looks to be a nice country with rich history, access to the Mediterranean sea and beautiful coastline

🐨 A way to leave Australia

  • I had a very valid reason
  • I am able to prove with documents why my reason is so valid
  • I apply for an exemption to the Department of Immigration and get it approved
  • declare that I intend to leave Australia for at least a year
  • describe things that I do to prove the seriousness of my intent (like selling my car, giving up my apartment, the fact that I got the visa for a year)
  • prove that I can financially support myself during that time (bank statement, employment letter with the salary, letter that I can work remotely)
  • declare that I understand the risks of travel and under no circumstances going to ask the government for help
