That moving/working in the EU thing is huge. The American expats my company has in Europe all tell me that those working visas are a nightmare

If it's a large company usually the company handles everything. At least if they post people overseas often.

It's harder for people hoping to retire or just take a year off. Then they need to handle everything themselves.

One thing a lot of people move and then end up in shock when things are different. Some people just can't adjust. One guy around here last year was whining about clothing sizes. He claimed he always bought a M in North America so all the clothes here were defective since he needed a XL

I thought Kent Wang had dual, based on my conversation with him, but maybe he's only there on a visa?

How else can I use this new passport to great personal advantage?

Who else is dually?

I'm UK and USA. Are there jobs in the EU though? I didn't know that.

I checked out EURES and do see some stuff I could likely swing into. However, I plan to either go over with a North American company, or network into something. I know a few Dutchies in my industry here.

+1. an EU passport is huge.

I have US/Israel, I only use my israeli when I need to send a passport out for a visa and I don't have time to use my US.

Do you mean China won't let you or?

Until I think 1976 Canada didn't allow it.

Until 1991 Italy didn't.

When I was in Canada I was Cdn.

When I was in Italy I was Italian.

Was he from mainland? If so, then it's not possible. Hongkong and Taiwan are different stories though.

USA/Eire here, through my parents. Using it at the moment to work in the EU, and I very much enjoy the "no hassles" aspect.

I've never looking into teaching in the EU- I don't think the demand is there, since most EU people already speak English quite well.

I wouldn't think so. I have a friend who's going to Italy next year from China, but he teaches science in English private schools, so it's a bit different.

There are plenty of English language schools but 1) Plenty of potential teachers. Ranging from real teachers to drunk college kids taking a year off. 2) The better ones often want native English speakers so that rules out Americans.

Try looking into Central Europe, Czech Republic, Poland, etc.
