"Blue Better Than Blue"

We Are All Talented SKYDOGs Now!
I was dumped, and, sitting on the edge of seaside bench of Jagalchi old market, Busan port,
as seagulls fly into the wharf and brush my ears, we talked about what we really wanted from life.
Returning from a wandering deep-sea fishing boat that has to do dangerous labor in the cold winter sea for my curiousness of ocean, It was at that devastating moment of despair that the muse tapped me on the shoulder and reminded me of what I had aspired since my childhood in S. Korea, emerging country in the early 1980.
"What I really want to be at the age 16, an elite explorer of Africa, but not informed at that time in the emerging S. Korea, I realised lately at the Sorbonne library in Paris that the Anglo-Saxons had done already in the19th century"
Another captain at the pier's bar advised me to stop my stupid vagabonding and go back immediately to schooling ; however, I had sworn not to be a slave of boring school education, moreover, nor of dangerous fishing boat to see simply the large sea world.
Instead of glorious elites to live an indocile slave running to succeed endlessly without any joyful desire at Seoul, Tokyo as well as USA luxury brands 8 Ivy League, having no meaningful desire or nothing to dream of made me miserable in an unbearable state, I said eagerly to become SKYDOG in Europe. Global openness, democratised education with economic freedom, and multicultural worldschooling online!
I've collaborated on, and published 63 destination guidebooks that were circulated onboard airlines. I've traveled over 108 jurisdictions in living in 7 different countries.
In the past few years, a lot of Americans migrate to Europe, especially in Portugal. I suspect that the wealthy people of Global North have a lot in common : how to do successful businesses in lowering high taxes. The successful entrepreneurs of Global South aspire to achieve family settlement in the Western World for the purposes of better-educational and economic opportunities with a freedom of global movement.
I’ve traveled three decades looking for and experimenting with the best cities around the world to employ offshore strategies, residency and citizenship, artist-digital nomad lifestyle with freedom of settlement. I've made endless mistakes which have cost me a lot of time and expensive money and I'm able to handle complex cases and answer wealthy people or talent migration in real time.
S.Korea has been tremendously changed in the past 70 years (a stateless due to Japanese colonial rule by 1945 and ashes of the Korean War 1950-53). It was one of the poorest countries. The hardships and despair of all of them continued and S. Korea turned into a Global North recently. Every time I traveled to each country by 2005, I had to stand in line like a refugee in front of each embassy for a travel visa or each immigration office to apply a residence card.
Either children of a lesser state or stateless people (Kurds, Rohingyas, Bidouns, Palestinians...) or nationals whose freedom of movement are restricted (North Koreans, Iranians, Russians, Afghans, Syrians, Cubans...), the idea of automatic and unconditional membership, birthright nationality is the relic of the past.
Western society alone cannot be our future and purpose. Each country has its own unique characteristics and provides cultural and historical values. Today about 100 countries offer government programs for foreign settlement and we are living in an era of borderless world where any individuals could fulfill their desires. We are not born only for a destiny country. With the making of creative efforts proportionate to a meaningful desire, each could move to the other continent by an investment or a talent.

During long summer season I could spend a blissful week on my own in a part of Cannes, sunbathing naked at the end of a long deserted beach. Fly to enjoy greek salad daily with ultimately popular music at my lovely Loutraki beach, Greece. Deep diving into the desert Tamanrasset of Sahara followed by jumping to a pool of oases....
Whether scuba diver of Dubai marina beach or fitted with lenses myopia getting by in America I have always insisted an exorcism as electronic traveler.
To live hunter gatherer on fishing boat in the 21th century or to live fighter dog for human spectacles of single state likely N. Korea is a matter to find the way of our common rights to live. The way of peoples of each of the various states evolved over time and together.
Whenever french football national or PSG team win the match, a vast, chaotic crowd filled the Avenue Champs-Elysées the evening evaporated strangely the morrow morning. I could not understand how our species' brave collective merriness confront each others in the other situation.
Dogs love chasing small birds, but never manage to catch them. The highlight of their walk is meeting and playing with fellow citizens. The dog traveling is always a great way for them to pee and poe, also for their next meal.
Each individual is a moving sovereign man who worshps the will. You are both an entrepreneur, a freelancer-youtuber-artist or retiree. Clear out your workspace or brain. Make room for listening new skills, experiences and knowledge of the others.
We are all talented SKYDOGs invited to reside in europe and across the globe and each talent brings the economic and cultural benefits to the state. We are not born to contribute for one corner, the whole globe is our native land to share our talents.

For those who want to work on the cutting edge in fields such as AI, quantum computing, and biotech, the US is no longer the only option. For example, the advantageous BlueCard-Germany, the UK offering fast-track visas for scientists and soon planning to overhaul its immigration system to lower barriers for skilled workers. France has introduced the French Tech Visa—renewable visa for tech workers and entrepreneurs. In sharp contrast to the situation in US, covid-19 hasn’t caused these countries to backtrack; these countries as well as Canada, Australia remain committed to attracting skilled immigrants and are positioning themselves to welcome talent as travel restrictions ease.
It’s too soon to say how much these immigration initiatives may erode America’s historic advantage in technology and other fields. Some countries are better positioned to attract talent than others. But America’s historic near-monopoly on the global market for foreign talent is fading, and the stakes are getting higher.
+50 countries offer a Digital Nomad Visa for remote workers in 2023
The new Digital Nomad Visa allows remote workers to live in the country and legally work for their employer or their own company registered abroad. Digital nomads and remote workers have long faced ambiguity when working while they travel, often skirting the law by working while visiting a country with a tourist visa.
But as of August 2020, eligible location-independent workers can apply for the chance to come to +20 countries to live for up to a year with peace of mind that they can legally work.

The right to change nationality
The percentage of settled immigrants with host country citizenship reaches 90 percent in Canada, 81 percent in Australia, 62 percent in the US, and an average of 59 percent across the European Union (though with much variation). In Africa and Asia we have no such statistics: but it is clear that naturalisation is often almost completely inaccessible, especially to those who most need it.
The Roman philosopher Cicero, who was among the first to consider the concept of citizenship, explained the relationship between citizen and state in this manner: In return for completing certain civic responsibilities (say, paying your taxes and following road signs), citizens are offered rights;
protection from the state, and the ability to claim nationality.
More than a thousand years later, Hannah Arendt echoed this same sentiment by famously calling citizenship “the right to have rights.” In her view, citizenship was a necessary vehicle to deliver human rights, because only a state can deliver them. Taken backward, this implies that, without a government’s acknowledgment of citizenship, a person can be stripped of the rights inherent to their existence. In other words, if you’re not a citizen, you’re not fully a person.
Article 15 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights establishes three elements of the right to a nationality in international law:
- the right to a nationality itself;
- the right not to be arbitrarily deprived of nationality;
- and the right to change nationality.
The first element gets attention from those interested in the conundrum of statelessness, in membership and belonging; the second from those concerned about discrimination, due process, and the rule of law; but the third element is comparatively neglected by the policy and scholarly communities.
What does the right to change nationality mean?
At the minimum legalistic level it requires that a person should have the right to renounce a birth nationality (provided that they can show that they have or will immediately acquire another nationality). But for the right to be real a person must also have the right to acquire nationality in another country than their country of birth, based on their strong connections there. In practice this is often not available.

Raising Global Human Capital
(digital nomad, artist, entrepreneur)
Alongside its highly successful international private client practice, citinavi global has a thriving organisation, municipality and government advisory practice in collaboration with its global network that advises and assists organisations, municipalities and governments on cultural and economic development strategy and implementation in the areas of elite expats (digital nomad, artist, entrepreneur) with residence programs.
Over the years, citinavi global has collaborated several organisations on projects ranging from strategic consulting to the design, implementation related digital nomad, artist, entrepreneur with residence programs in Europe and Asia.
Elite expats are people who are moving to improve their life circumstances.They have skills that can bring highly compensated work. Highly educated but less fortunate migrants, elite expats migrate toward places where they may find networks for work rather than to a specific job in a traditional way.
Their mobility trends reveal a wide range of push factors, both contextual and individual, suggesting the need for an integrated and biographycal approach. In traditional models, places with superior quality of life, rich opportunities, and high status are not places people seek to flee.
While creative class cities have desirable amenities, draw talented populations, and benefit work organizations, they also burn out the people who work and live there, leaving many of them unfulfilled and unhappy. In this way, elite expats' decisions to leave are based on factors that are either ignored by or counter to prominent macro-level arguments about creative class cities.
The objective of such elite expats programs is to respond to the increasing demands of decentralisation and to enhance a country’s attractiveness to international artists, curators, digital nomads, global talents, entrepreneurs and to create more favorable conditions for enhancing cultural and economic developement.
The following is an overview of some of the countries, organizations of government and programs that citinavi global has been or continues to be involved with: Digital Nomad - Artist - Entrepreneur in collaboration with our global network of leading consultancies, professionals.:
Barbados, Bermuda, Croatia, Dubai, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Norway, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Republic of Czech, Taiwan, Thaiiand.
