PLEASE NOTE the following about Zaqistan before Applying:
Location of Zaqistan
Zaqistan is small, remote and bound on all sides by the United States. It is as of now unrecognized by any other country. It is NOT POSSIBLE to travel to Zaqistan without going through the United States.
Zaqistan is a fledgling, developing nation. There are no living facilities, no roads, and no water in Zaqistan, it is not possible to live in Zaqistan. We currently visit Zaqistan for only a few days of the year, and no one lives there year round.
Travel to Zaqistan, Visas, Business
Although someday we hope to develop Zaqistan to the point where it can accommodate visitors and tourists on a regular basis, as of now, it is currently only possible to visit Zaqistan through a Zaqistan Tourism Board sponsored tour (more details coming soon). It is NOT POSSIBLE to independently obtain a visa to visit Zaqistan, or set up business operations in Zaqistan and probably won't be for some time.
The Republic of Zaqistan regrettably cannot offer employment to anyone at this time.
