Life Abroad Nightmares – embassy red tape

Although I’ve ranted before about the boldfaced lie of “blissfully traveling the world” I just can’t help myself so here I go again.

When it suits their fancy governments seem to know everything there is to know about you (big brother).

On the other hand when it comes to issuing a visa, authenticating a marriage, etc., they seem to be unable to make their computers link and suddenly their advanced systems, spy technology, and AI all are out of commission.

Why is it in 2021 that we are still doing all of this with peices of dead tree and red stamps?

Maybe the inefficiency means more revenue?
