    Well, you wasn't expecting to pick up work here to finance your trip did you? Because as a visitor or tourist, you don't have the legal right to work. So clearly you are going to need the money to support yourself for the duration.

    I don't believe you need to show that you have money to enter on a tourist visa. But you will need some way to pay your way.

    Good point... likely from one of those places that need a VISA to travel too. And some sucker is about to send money to some Burly Nigerian Guy on a computer in Ghana thinking its his girlfriend.

    I will give it that a tourest visa is a lot different from other types of VISA, try entering Canada from the US to work, ( what a hassle)

    I can work in Italy Legally (and elligible for dual citizenship)... that might be transferrable to other EU countries... I was grandfathered into the OLD Italian Immigration law.
