Hello, I have 2 questions being thst I'm moving to Guatemala in late October. My boyfriend will Sponsor me for a bank and many other related things I may need. But I have oy a 2000$ Budget and his income doesn't even come close to mine although he is an accountant. I also have military tricare insurance for my medical and it's a bit scetchy as I have to flie my claim first after paying all fees up front.
Tricarw as given me a list of 9 providers un the Guatemala city área and none of them are the ones Listed un the forum as being top selected.
My first question is related to a previous tumor I had removed from my pancreas. Fortutuantly it was non canceras and I'm scared thst my over all health may be jeaporized moving to Guatemala.
Can someone who has knowledge give me their opinión about moving there especially with a Budget of 2000$ and having to fly back to the states every 180 days which I dont understand that either.
Does anyone have Information about long-term residency so that I dont have to get immigration to permite me 90 additional days totalling 180 days?

I am addressing the 90 day visa. I finally received my permanent residency but it took 3 years. Of restarting the process 4 times. The rules are only guidelines and it is a very frustrating process. I kept working at it as a personal challenge.

You don’t have to go to the US to get a new visa. I used to go to Mexico to renew my visa. You can also go to Belize.

Hi - your best bet is to get on Facebook. Join the Expats in Guatmala group and do a search for all these things. There is heaps of information in that group. Getting temporary and then permanent residency is not so easy now, so look up residency lawyers too. There are a couple everyone uses and both speak English.
You income should be more than enough, but also depends on where you will be living. Guate City and Antigua tend to be a bit more expensive than say Xela or Lake Atitlan. Also depends on your rent....anything from Q1,500/month to $1,500 or more a month!!
Facebook groups are great!
Good Luck.
