Interesting.... On other polls we've be seeing Caribbean coming up a lot. We're going to look into which countries are optimal to play poker in, Cayman of course being at the top of the list.

Malta is in progress!

Malta is populair among Dutch players who don't want the insecurity regarding the tax structure in The Netherlands.

+1 for Malta

English as official language, 3% tax for foregniers if I remember correctly and it is EU member so great option for every European player.

You should also think about Italy given that they have separate player pool but there is many regs that would love to relocate just to be able to play with Italians.

We agree Malta is up there with the top choices.

Regarding Italy, we did some research recently and I recall that you had to be a resident of Italy to even play on the sites :/

We could reopen that but I'm pretty sure even if your on vacation there or living temporarily they bar you

I intend to move to the Philippines shortly after the wsop. I've been there before for an extended period and it seems like a good choice for english speakers. Cebu has an APPT and is an easy place to settle down for expats.

The only thing that might not be ideal is the banking system?

Re: *** Poker Refugees / OFFICIAL Player Relocation Thread ***

We don't have a program set up specifically for Phillipines, but a few foreigners who are over there have reached out to us. If you'd like you can PM me and I'll put you in touch with them

They seem to be having fun over there, but, we've noticed that most are from countries other than the US, so they may have had other banking/cashout options set up via their home countries before moving there.

For setting up to get back online the first time, we recommend coming to a place that's easier to get up and going first, then get more adventurous later once you're already playing online. That takes a lot of the stress off with banking, etc because you aren't pressured anymore to get your documents submitted to poker sites.

Yes; we have been planning to offer Thailand for a few months now and are working on getting all the details in place to officially offer that.

Is it your first time moving outside of the US? Will you be reopening your online poker site accounts for the first time?

Hey... Sean? Cool, we're definitely working on adding more countries now and even do individual relocations to any country with enough time to plan. We'll hook it up

Re: *** Poker Refugees / OFFICIAL Player Relocation Thread ***

Hi all,

Do any players want to be interviewed this week for a story on Poker Refugees by the Washington Associated Press?

They are looking to speak with players who were forced to move abroad due to Black Friday.

If so let us know; share your story!

Re: *** Poker Refugees / OFFICIAL Player Relocation Thread ***

Just attempted to fill out the information on the site and an error occured, so I thought I'd post here.

Likely moving to Chiang Mai, Thailand in September but there's a possibility I change course and head to Melbourne, Australia instead.

PM'd you with more information.

If you are in the US and trying to plan a move to a foreign country to reopen your poker accounts, or if you already live abroad and just want help planning your travel to a safe and fun environment with reliable internet and infrastructure, we can help.

On this thread we can answer questions about this customized service and general questions on playing poker abroad and living in different countries.

Kristin from Poker Refugees began helping players in May just weeks after Black Friday. Since the company's inception in August, Poker Refugees has helped nearly 120 players relocate to destinations such as Costa Rica, Canada and Panama.

It's great that someone took the liberty of setting up an establishment that aids in the effort of helping fellow poker players alike. One thing about the poker industry as of late is that it shows if we can join forces we can accomplish more then playing for self inflicted reasons. In all, poker is a selfish sport as we must take ones money to survive and flourish... but poker can give back in a big way and charities such as the 'Big One for One Drop' just shows poker players have a true heart beyond the one stapled on a deck of bicycle cards.

BTW, I left a comment on your facebook fan page. Hope to hear back soon!

I was up and running in about 4 days since I moved, and I am pretty confident it would have taken me over a month without them.

Kristen, Nicki, and Ellen are all extremely nice and help you out with anything you need. $1,000 really is a bargain if you think about it since they save you from any missteps happening, and will have you on stars much quicker than you would be able to do on your own and lets you start making money sooner. It is also nice to know if you don't speak the language where you are going somebody to help is only a phone call away. It really is a great business and am very very glad I used them.
Poker Refugees sounds like one outstanding program/service!

So basically it's a 1,000 flat fee. Does this include everything or does the cost differ depending on ones location.

Much Thanks!

It's utterly fantastic that you're expanding your services to other countries. I am particularly interested in Mexico in such regions as Cabo or Playa Del Carmen. Realistically looking towards the end of the year to relocate to Mexico. What are your thoughts?

Since, I am located in California the obvious choice would be Mexico. I have read a few blogs and everyone who moved to Mexico has nothing but good things to say about the location. The weather and scenery are a few of the incentives... tackle on cheap living, great food, and a decent night life you have a superb destination to pursue you passion- poker!

Hi Aaron thanks for the heads up. We sent this info to our tech guys and you should have received a PM and email back from Nicki to get started.

Thank you! We work really hard and love what we do; it's been a great year helping poker players from all over the world, not just those affected by Black Friday.

Thus far we've found that the flat fee of $1,200 really works for everyone as there is no time limit to the service and it's customized to each player's needs. We feel it provides a great value for the time and energy saved on our clients' behalf.

Depending on the country, there can be some additional costs when third party services are involved, as these vary from country to country. We can get into more detail on that and explain depending on where you decide to go.

An end-of-year relocation is more than realistic. We'll send you a PM to get started.

Mexico is definitely an affordable option, and most Latin American countries offer a low cost of living and some lively nightlife.

I can definitely feel the radiance in your voice by doing what you love to do. It's a great feeling.

The cost is more then reasonable and there is plenty of worked involved relocating just to another city now couple that with the move of a foreign country. It can definitely be a tumultuous experience without your assistance. I have my mind set on Mexico there is no debate there. We can start crunching the facts once you lay the path. Thanks again!

You're welcome!

Haha yes, many clients have told us we should raise the price. We like to keep it accessible for everyone but as we add new countries the pricing will vary according to local costs.

I sent you a PM so now it's just a matter of deciding where in Mexico before moving forward.

Talk soon!
