Re: VISA - EXIT DAY IS COUNTED?

another thought ........ you could therefore be tax resident (>183 days, depending upon jurisdiction ) in 2 countries by virtue of exit and entry being counted twice, so to speak

Re: VISA - EXIT DAY IS COUNTED?

so if the exit day is counted as "resident" in that exiting country ("A") then when you land, same day, in another country ("B") then can you be legally "resident" in two countries (or more) for the same day? Or am I missing something?

VISA - EXIT DAY IS COUNTED?

90 day stamp (say); exit day is counted as one day?

Is there a consistent "rule", worldwide?

The fishing is pretty poor around here... however as there is now a regular and cheap weekend / weekday ferry to St John's islands that might work. Google St Johns Island Ferry.

Landlord is responsible: "existing fault".
I would give 7 days to fix. If they reject then organise and pay yourself; fight later.
