    Which country? 4 countries offer well-known retiree visa programs which would allow extended residency, provided you have a govt or major corporation pension meeting financial requirements & would bring in that money monthly to live on.

    Otherwise, student or employment visas would likely be the only type of visa which might allow you to remain in a country for more than 180 days or maybe 6 months. Employment visas must be applied for by qualified employer, and are only valid as long as you work full-time for that specific employer, until maximum deadline of the visa. Student visas require full-time study at an accredited institution. No known alternatives for any country, not even with ample proof of funds to provide for all your living expenses, not even with property ownership in the country.

    Nope - 'nonspecific possible tourist' gives you max 6 months, without being allowed to work.

    Unless your visa is sponsored by a family member it is generally for a specific purpose (work or study). In the US an H1B visa generally has a three year stay attached to it. But if you're not planning to work or study in a particular place there's really no reason for you to be there (except to be with family, in which case you'd go for a family reunification permanent residency).

    Visas depend on country and you have to fit the criteria of the visa for that country before you get it, so all are specific............... visas do not work on world wide rules.... generally  a student visa you have to study, a work visa you have to have a employing sponsor/job offer, spousal visa, you have to be married, sponsored and live with your spouse, a dependant visa requires you to be sponsored by a visa holder
