Travel tips from South America to Asia

Travel tips from South America to Asia

    Hey everyone!

    I would like to know some tips (the cheapest cost possible) since I’m planning to travel to Japan next year and I’m a student. I would also like to know what credit cards I can apply since I don’t have any credit record!

    Do you mean US credit cards?

    Thank you 🙂

    I have 2 options: since I’m living in Brazil right now, it’d be from Campo Grande’s airport. The other option would be from the airport from Bogotá, Colombia.

    About the credit cards, I’m american citizen but since I don’t live in US I haven’t had the necessity of having a Social Security number, so it would be really good if anyone knows about Colombian credit cards for students!

    PS: I currently have 4.300 kms in LATAM. Would it be useful?

    I think you should get your SSN – it’ll be useful in the future, if you plan on returning to the US permanently. Once you do that, you can try to get basic, no annual fee US credit cards if you’d like.

    For now, I think your best option might be to find cheap deals between South America and Japan. It will probably require transiting via NA, ME or Europe.
