Agree that thinking you can use short-term casual work to fund your travel is absolutely pointless (unless you're into the huge risk of illegality).

>most countries only require an employee to write up an invitation for a specific non-citizen employee to be granted a work visa.

I don't know where you've read that but you've misunderstood.

In many/most countries, an application for work visa (from your country of permanent residence) must be accompanied by a formal job offer. The employer must provide documents to accompany the application which must convince visa staff that the job cannot be filled by a citizen of his/her own country. You're not going to get a short-term employer to do that before you visit (it costs them time and money) and it's unlikely that you'd fill the 'cannot be done by a citizen of the country' criterion anyway.

Getting a work visa/permit once you're in a country is neither simple nor straightforward...and certainly not if you're planning on staying for just a few months. In many cases, it's impossible. Work visas and permits aren't just handed out on the day of application....

Take it from people who've travelled extensively and know what they're talking about...you'll need another source of funds to support you on this trip.

Hahaha ok. I'll concede that idea..

What about traveling advice in Asia?

I'm planning on these destinations - South Korea, Huangshan in the Anhui Province in eastern China, Gobi-Altai Mountains in the Govi-Altai Province in Mongolia, Malaysia, and Bali Indonesia.

Thank you!!🙏🙏🙏

I thought you were travelling from China to Rep Ireland? By the way, 'Ireland' is the name of the whole island which is made up of the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, part of the UK.

Whether your plans have changed or not, the first thing to do is to work out what visas you'll need, how to apply for them and whether you'll must be in your country of citizenship or permanent residence to do so. Examples:

China visa info: http://www.china-embassy.org/eng/visas/

Mongolia allows a maximum visa-free stay of 90 days for US citizens. If you intend to stay in Mongolia for more than 30 days you must register within 7 days of arrival (there are fines for not doing so).

https://mn.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/local-resources-of-u-s-citizens/

S Korea allows a maximum visa-waiver 90-day stay for US citizens. You will probably need an evisa: https://www.k-eta.go.kr/portal/apply/index.do

Malaysia allows a visa-free maximum stay of 90 days for US citizens.

Bali is part of Indonesia. US citizens can get a visa-on-arrival for a maximum of 30 days. A longer stay requires a full visa.

Many countries also have extra entry requirements because of Covid.

(Have you thought about health insurance for your trip? If the US advises against visiting a country travel & health insurance may be invalidated. Travelling without health insurance is, imo, madness.)

When you're doing your research make sure you get your information from official websites and, ideally, make all visa applications through official websites. There are a lot of scam websites involved in the business of visas.........
