Hey Prab,

I guess this is a Chicken and the Egg kind of
question, but you may want to explore residency
options before traveling.

If you are not able to meed the residency
requirements, it may be more cost effective to not
travel to a place you know you can't stay...

But on the other hand, maybe traveling will give you
more motivation to find a way to stay there.

I'm assuming you are talking about "long term" as in
years...usually you can travel for a few months with
no issue.

With Costa Rica you can stay for 90 days on a
tourist visa. As long as you leave the country for
several days you can renew the visa again. Some
people are happy with that arrangement long term and
then and become a perpetual tourist, but I'm sure
that gets old after the 3rd or 4th time you need to
pack up and go.

Another idea is to look for expat blogs for the
various countries and then you'll be able to get an
idea of what challenges others have faced when
moving to a new country. You might even be able to
ask questions. Facebook has expat pages and yahoo
groups also have some (I know there are some for
Costa Rica).

Best of Luck!!
