Hi,

I want to travel to Europe for about 3 months. I am wondering if anyone has any info on finding work that will pay you under the table so I won't need to obtain a visa for that specific country.
Any job would do, I will take anything. Are there lots of opportunitys???
Anyone with any info would be a great help.
Thanks!!!

Hola,

The best advice would be to check out bars, restaurants, and cafes. A lot of these places need bussers or other staff. Also, some hostels exchange free stays for working there. I think Flying Pig in Amsterdam and Pink Palace in Corfu are two of these. Also, depending on when you go, resorts hire people who can speak English and also tour guide work can be found. Teaching English would probably be for someone looking to stay longer and is tougher to get work with a reputable place without a TEFL degree or the like.

Just remember, when you are working under the table that if you get stiffed by some employers, you are out of luck. Since you are working illegally. Best of luck!
