My school obtained a work visa for myself, and a dependant visa for my husband. Having a visa here isn't a huge deal b/c you just leave the country every 90 days and you should be fine to stay for an extended amount of time.

The zones an expat would live and work in for Guatemala City are overall mainly safe. We do not feel threatened, and have never seen a dangerous crime. There is no visible gang activity or violence where we live, but we stay out of the dangerous parts of the city. We really enjoy living here!!
