You're an EU citizen, but you're ruling out the EU? There is no such place, then, that you can just walk into without a visa, and become a resident (without a visa or paperwork). How can this be a serious question?

I think what you are seeking is impossible. There are always rules and regulations regarding residency in I believe all countries. No country will just freely allow in any person with no money, no job, to freeload off of their economy and services. There are reasons they have this beurocacy in place -- to ensure you are someone who will contribute to their country.

Every once in a while a Latin American country requires a visa. I think Brazil has always required one, for a long time. Recently Paraguay and Bolivia have started demanding a $100 single entry vise from Americans, but not from anybody else, as a "reciprocal" penalty for the US making them pay punitive visa fees. In the distant past, I was required to get visas for Panama and Venezuela, but those were discontinued a decade or more ago.

Generally, visas are easy to get. It requires spending a night in some dreadful capital in order to go to the consulate, and maybe return for the visa the next day, but they are issued without hassle and used to be cheap, but a lot of countries (mainly Africa) are now using them as a major source of revenue.

India is the most royal of royal pains in the ass. Once you have your Indian visa (minimum one week, even in person), all the other bureaucracy you will encounter in everything else you do there will seem relatively easy.

There are probably still a few countries that will not issue a visa to Americans, although every other nationality is welcomed. Iran is, I think, one of them, and it is a lovely and hospitable country, it is a shame Americans cannot go there.

I've heard that Cambodia issues a short visa at the border, but once inside, you can stay virtually forever with renewals that are automatically extended for a modest fee, and nobody cares what you do while you are there. Good deals like that never last. Check a source like Lonely Planet for "de facto" rules, "official" regulations may vary.

Not a trade - dual citizenship.

You could always consider Svalsbard, if you have your own business. This is the island north of Norway, you don't need a visa and can stay as long as you like. After 7 years you can apply for citizenship.

Philippines has a complex assortment of visas, and nearly anyone can find a way to extend an entry stamp. One good thing about the Philipplines is that it can be done in-country, after you arrive and arrival entry stamp is free. If you need to do a visa run, it costs about $90 to fly out to Kota Kinabalu and back, which might be cheaper than a visa extension.. On first arrival, you get stamped in for 59 days, which is easy to extend in-country.

Multinational cosmopolitan friendly at acceptable ratio quotient. Vantage point angle is especially meticulous with every national unique governing label. Bizarre puzzle among Globalization Scale Map visual stories public disclosures: http://geographylaunchpad.weebly.com...36407_orig.png

Conflicting evidence when there is tons of parallels that arenít even offering copious fusions. Woah, exclusive honorable examples is basically having to focus on major attributes that is far outside of overly narrow window. Embrace any specific factors on migration between people foreign cultural immersion. Even in close proximity multiculturalism atmosphere. Finally, signs of exotic approval is equally satisfying.

I bet there are at least 70 countries equal preference around with friendly allowing open exchange through aliens of ethnic heritage nationality lines without any problems. Yet ending up difficult to establish residential titles of no visa. Visiting is completely psychologically away from living over there.
