Answer I think a lot of American travel but not as much as Europeans. A lot do travel, but there are so many wonderful things to see and do in the US that many… don't feel the need. (A Brit) The number of Americans that have passports is rather low, anywhere from 7-18% according to some online sources. In addition the majority of Americans simply do not make enough money to travel (abroad) and many that do, do so on credit. Couple this with Americans' lack of knowledge about countries outside of their own and you pretty much have your answer.

If you are an American living abroad I understand you must file taxes in the US. But if you are under the poverty level in the country where you live what effect does this have on your US taxes?
First, if you are abroad on April 15th on a given year. the tax payer 'receives an automatic two-month extension both to file returns and to pay the taxes. The I.R.S. charges …interest on taxes due, starting April 15, but no penalties are assessed.'No penalties are incurred for a citizen or legal resident filing federal income taxes late while physically abroad, as long as the person files (and pays any taxes owed) before June 15. If you anticipate that you owe taxes, and you are cutting close to June 15, file an extension (this gives you 4 months from April 15.) If you continue to claim residency in a state while living abroad, check the rules of that state, (most likely available on the internet or by mail, or ask the embassy/ consulate for assistance.)As for living below the poverty line, since the amount of exemption for foreign earned income is $82,400, this probably means no taxes are owed, there would be no penalties or interest charged. Beyond this, the filing process is the same.Moving abroad is a personal decision. Physically being outside of the United States' and its 50 states' and territories' respective jurisdiction also means being outside of their welfare systems (if any.) In the event of a person receiving welfare or unemployment insurance payments, the cheques will continue to arrive in the mail unless disqualified.Unless you work for the government or for a non-profit which is directly subsidized by the government, you will probably not receive economic exemptions and assistance. If you feel that you are entitled to certain exemptions and assistance beyond being in poverty, find out who is responsible for its distribution and contact them.
All U.S. Citizens are protected by the Constitution which includes Bankruptcy no matter where they live. Speak with an attorney about your specific situation. If you c…an not find an attorney, contact your local Bar association and they will refer you to one.
To apply for Medicare you must live in the United States. Below is taken directly from the Medicare and You 2009 book on coverage when you travel outside the United Stat…es: Medicare generally doesn't cover health care while you are traveling outside the U.S. (the "U.S." includes the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa). There are some exceptions including some cases where Medicare may pay for services that you get while on board a ship within the territorial waters adjoining the land areas of the U.S. In rare cases, Medicare may pay for inpatient hospital, doctor, or ambulance services you get in a foreign country in the following situations: 1) If an emergency arose within the U.S. and the foreign hospital is closer than the nearest U.S. hospital that can treat your medical condition 2) If you are traveling through Canada without unreasonable delay by the most direct route between Alaska and another state when a medical emergency occurs and the Canadian hospital is closer than the nearest U.S. hospital that can treat the emergency 3) If you live in the U.S. and the foreign hospital is closer to your home than the nearest U.S. hospital that can treat your medical condition, regardless of whether an emergency exists You pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount, and the Part B deductible applies.

it means that you are living in another country, eg: If you live in the USA and you decide to live in Holland, this means you will be living abroad. the same goes for people l…iving in Holland and they want to live in England, they are going abroad.
If one is only an American Citizen, they are still considered Citizens of the United States regardless of where they live (though they may be legal "residents" of other countr…ies their "citizenship" remains). If one has dual (or multiple) citizenships, they would be considered American Citizens for some purposes (IRS can claim taxes on foreign-sourced income, for example) but if they are resident in one of the countries of their other citizenship, they would not be able to claim assistance of the United States vis-a-vis the other country. For example, if Bob is a citizen of the United States by birth and naturalized in Country "X" and Bob lives in Country "X". Bob could not claim assistance from the United States for punishment for crimes committed in "X" or from mandatory military service in "X".
Over 35 million Americans have medicare, and over 36 million receive medicaid. (Note; some people have both. )
Imperialism Viewed From Abroad: Having begun a pattern of international involvement, the U.S. discovered that these actions frequently took on a life of their own. In the Ca…ribbean and Central America, for example, the U.S. often had to defend governments that were unpopular with local inhabitants. In Latin America, the cry "Yankee, Go Home!" began to be heard. Even before the Panama Canal was completed in 1914, Panamanians began to complain that they suffered from discrimination. On the other hand, because the United States was quickly becoming so powerful, other countries-even those fearful about maintaining their independence-began to turn to the United States for help. Both welcomed and rejected, the United States would spend the rest of the century trying to decide the best way to reconcile its growing power and national interests with its relationships with other nations.
I think you never lose it. I have relatives who have lived abroad for 25 years, and have not visited the US in 5 years. They don't lose it.
If you are less than 18 years old, your parents' ability to support you will be considered in determining your eligibility for Medicaid.

Hi everyone-- I suppose the best way to describe this special case is to start from the basics and then work to the details. I am a 23 year old American who is able to obtain… Italian citizenship through 'jure sanguinis' from my grandmother (on my mother's side only). I have gone though a number of check lists to know if I am eligible and no doubt I qualify 100%. My grandmother was born in Italy in 1922 (still living), moved the the U.S, she then gave birth to my mother in 1963 and then three years later became a naturalized American (in 1966). I am lucky enough to have original documents and in fact I have all the required documents minus translations and Apostilles at this point. Now for the tricky situation, I have been living in Paris, France as a legal resident for over one year. I am on my own, not married, no kids, not a student. I have all the necessary papers to prove that I live legally in France with a visa and residence permit that is renewable each year. However, living and working in Europe as a non-EU citizen is very difficult. I would like to open my job prospects, due away with administration hassle each year and live comfortably as a Italian citizen in France. I have done various searches and still cannot find a solid answer to my question... So my question is: While living in France as a foreigner but with legal residency is it possible to go to the local Italian Consulate or Embassy to apply for citizenship through 'jure sanguinis'? If there is anyone out there with a similar situation or who has further information regarding my case please do not hesitate to respond or ask me further questions!
