Some companies want to avoid being caught on the wrong side of the law. So they'll do anything to keep their books straight. That sometimes means leaving out all other country except where they operate in. Others are not sure of the legality of their business in unfamiliar countries, and the laws that apply in order to legally do business there. So they prefer to play it safe.
No, I actually didn’t view it before hand. I found the position on Career builder and it said so in the description. On the day of orientation we were told that after or during training we would have to submit the background info and fee before the week we start taking calls. She also said it would not be refunded. I think it said so in the initial offer letter as well.
We don’t have any affiliate ties to Schwab or get paid for promoting their card, we just really love it. No one should have to get a terrible currency exchange rate at a kiosk in the airport or shopping center abroad. Additionally, no one should have to pay ATM fees. The Schwab debit card is a no-brainer for everyone, especially if you travel internationally. This is one of our top recommendations for saving money during your travels. Apply for your own Schwab checking account and get the best debit card out there for your next trip.

It’s also an amazing tool for overseas travel. I transfer some cash into this account a few days before a trip. In the past, I’ve paid nasty interchange charges each time I’ve needed to access my cash. With this card, there is a 1% fee built-in but there are no additional fees. I don’t mind the 1% because it’s $1 per $100 – which is a small price, in my opinion, for all the convenience I get from this account. I love it.
With so many businesses operating mostly, or even completely, online, it’s no wonder that many hire virtual assistants to help keep them organized and complete administrative tasks. According to the International Virtual Assistants Association, these workers are “independent contractors who (from a remote location, usually their home or office) support multiple clients in a variety of industries by providing administrative, creative, and technical services.”
[…] Avoid the ATMs and money exchange houses at airports as they have the worst rates (this advice does not just apply to Peru, it applies to basically anywhere). If you really need to, change a tiny bit of money at the airport just to pay your taxi driver, and then use an ATM or change house around your first accommodation to get more cash. If you are a serious international traveler, you should consider opening a Schwab Bank High Yield Investor Checking Account.

I would caution anyone using a capital one card for foreign travel…they may not charge a foreign transaction fee, but, if you need to access their investigative solutions for any financial disputes abroad, they are non-existent. We had an issue in Mexico that they have repeatedly avoided assisting us on. They use what should be considered exploitive customer service tactics for a service they tout as “protection abroad”.
I am regularly asked for recommendations on worldwide work from home jobs available outside the US. The problem is with so many online scams you have to be careful to only find trustworthy sites that actually pay. As a result, I have put together a list of worldwide jobs and gigs allowing you to work from anywhere no matter where you are located. I will add to this list as I come across more sites that I trust.
