Question by ♥§@®ãĦ♥ Ïŧ’§ мäğċ¤ℓ: How many ambassadors does a country have?
So I was just wondering, how many ambassadors does a country normally have?
And how many years does an ambassador work as one, on average, before someone else gets the job?
Answer by going_for_baroque A country has one ambassador per country it recognizes. There is usually someone who can replace the ambassador, since *designating* an ambassador is usually country-to-country, so it’s a “one at a time” thing.
Some small countries may designate an individual as ambassador to more than one country. But even the largest countries with huge diplomatic staff have only one ambassador to any country.
How many years an ambassador stays in country depends on the country and on lots of factors we can’t predict right now. Generally, ambassadors are pretty senior people, so it’s not uncommon for an ambassador to retire while in his/her job.
For Americans, overseas jobs are usually two to four years. Ambassadors aren’t always in that rotation. American ambassadors to really important countries (Japan, Germany, Iraq, and so forth) may be political appointees, so their tenure depends on who’s in office. When a president loses an election, his appointees generally tender their resignation, but stay until they’re replaced. This varies a lot and it’s impossible to give you a better answer.

Question by Rabach: Is there a country that can easily be moved too without assets, a degree or marriage and/or kids?
This country is starting to go in a very bad direction and I am looking for another country where my wife and I can simply pick up and move NOW. We would probably only have about $ 10K to work with and I would purchase some cheap land with a portion of that. Any country that will allow Americans to come in with no pension, no foreign language, no investments, no retirement income or social security, no nothing, just the clothes on are back and the stuff we could afford to get shipped over. Really could use your help as I have went through over 100 countries and there regulations and have come up with nothing that is doable.
Answer by Charlie Why would another country want you? What have you got to offer?Any country that would accept immigrants under such circumstances would surely have a very poor economy and much more severe problems than the U.S. has. The answer is…there are no such countries. You may not agree with everything going on in the U.S., but at least you have the RIGHT and FREEDOM to disagree. Look at other countries around the world where people do not have that freedom and do not have the great opportunites people in the U.S. have. Millions of people all over the world want to come to the U.S. because they know it is the land of opportunity. I believe Americans are just not nearly as aware of that as people outside the U.S. Take this as a challenge to help make the changes you think are needed. If you cannot succeed in the U.S. , you cannot succeed anywhere. I am not meaning to “preach” at you, I just mean you live in the greatest country on earth…step back, look at your life, find ways to change it. Every country on earth has problems, and many people who move to another country find that the new country is not so perfect after all. Get more education, get a better job, save your money for retirement…and one day you will be able to retire to another country and enjoy learning a new language and a new culture in positive circumstances.
Question by get with the program: What are the steps a person needs to take when moving to another country?
I am at the age where my kids are grown, the house and car are paid off, and I have nothing holding me down where I am at right now. I am putting my house on the market and once it sells would really love to move to another country in order to experience other cultures and what life is like beyond U.S. borders.
I already have my passport, but what else exactly does a person need to do to be able to purchase property and become an ex-pat in another country?
Answer by ACE How I envy baby-boomers like you.
Before you put your house on the market, I suggest that the first thing to do is to find out which country you would like to move to. Since you no longer have any commitment, and you have all the time in the world, you can plan a trip to those countires on your list and travel over a long period. Choose to stay and experience places as you move along. When you are finally serious about a place or two, you can even stay longer and work and live there on work permits.
I can promise you that when this is finally over, you’d have a completely different perspective of life

Question by Selina: After getting deployed in another country in the Marines how soon after checkout do you come home?
After getting deployed in another country in the Marines how soon after checkout do you come home?
Answer by Marine Selina – your question makes no sense.
If you are asking: How soon after I complete an overseas tour do I get to go home to visit family before the next duty assignment?, then the answer is “you normally get up to 30 days leave (vacation) between duty stations. You can go home, go on vacation to a quiet Pacific island, or skip leave and go direct to your next duty station”.
If you are asking: Once I complete my enlistment contract while overseas, at what point am I allowed to go home? then the answer is: You will be given orders to a stateside military base approximately 10 days to 14 days prior to date of discharge. That base will process you out of the military and you will leave on the last day of your enlisted contract.
Now lets say you 30 days leave on the books. While still at your overseas location, you can request that you be allowed to take leave up to the date of your expiration of enlisted service eg 30 days plus 10-14 days outprocessing at your Stateside base (as noted above), plus travel time from your overseas base to the Stateside base. In this case, you would be able to leave your overseas base 45 days from date of expiration of your enlisted contract. Keep in mind that your Commanding Officer must approve your request for leave, but he/she is not required to do so. Most of the time, such a request is granted.
After you leave the base, the time to reach your destination is based on your mode of travel.

Question by S: How much money should an American have to retire in Latin America?
Especially for the countries of Mexico, Colombia, Panama and Niceragua. I can also invest some of the money online in the stock market to have a little extra income.
Answer by Charlie Right now, be VERY careful about “investing ” that money. It might be safer in your piggy bank til Wall Street learns a few lessons. To reside legally in Mexico, you need an FM3 visa. That requires you to have provable income of abut $ 1500usd a month and the visa must be renewed yearly with proof of income. A single person can live nicely on $ 1500 a month in Mexico. Many people live on less…depends on how simply you can live. I don’t not know the visa requirements of the other countries…you would need to research those on their embassy websites. You can also enter “Colombia, retirement” or Nicaragua, moving to” in the search bar and you should come up with websites.
Question by Mr B: Why do Temporary Immigrants pay Social Security Tax when most can not retire in the states?
I’m a Temporary Immigrant and I pay all my taxes. However, unlike my other work colleagues, I don’t receive benefits like unemployment. Also, I can not retire here so is it right my employer takes so much in Social Security Tax? Are there any benefits?
Answer by bostonianinmo If you earn enough paid-up quarters under Social Security you CAN collect US SS benefits when you do retire. There is no requirement that you be a US citizen to qualify for SS benefits, only that your status is legal when you earn the income and you pay in to the system legally.
The tax treaties in place with most countries do provide for credit under your country’s equivalent retirement pension system. Contact them directly for instructions in getting credit at home for your income earned here in the US.
