Don't they wonder why you're not often in Philippines to do that consultant work?
Also, is your salary in that consultant work more than P40,000? I'm thinking of getting a job in Manila but I'm pretty sure the pay would be so bad, and NZ immigration is really picky when it comes to monthly salary.
I had no idea that working on odesk can get you trouble when you apply for a tourist visa. I mean don't you always hear stories about freelancers and bloggers working on their laptop while sipping on their juices in front of a beach. This was one of the reasons I started full time on odesk.
I am planning to apply for a visa to US in 2015. I want to attend a programming workshop over there. This will be my first visa application. Do you think I should not mention that I work as a freelancer? Other than working on odesk, I own a few websites. Do you guys think it is better to present myself as a web entrepreneur instead of as a freelancer? My workshop is 3 month long. So will that raise a flag?
