Some would say that this question is asking for travel advice, not aviation advice -- but for reasons that are fairly clear to me (scheduled international flight crews!), I suspect most countries deal with licensed pilots somewhat differently from an immigration standpoint...so is this on-topic, or should this be kicked over to travel.SE?
If I remember, we are asked to be greedy with migration - to migrate only when the question is off-topic on the origin site. In the absence of Travel.SE, I think this question would not get closed as off-topic, as it is reasonably closely related to flying. Therefore, I believe we should not migrate this question.
