Would student loan debt be recoverable if one emigrated to Australia or Costa Rica since some countries have 'reciprocity agreements' or will sell the debt in order to recover?

Trying to recover student loans overseas . In the first place, to get an idea of how many legal affairs are handled in Costa Rica, think about this: Although Costa Rica has a "extradition" treaty with the united states, Robert Vescoe, the "Fugitive financier" escaped from the U.S. after cheating investors out of approx. $220 M. Was welcomed in Costa Rica where he bought the Excelsior Newspaper, the Country Day high School in Zapote, an entire village in Guanacaste, and started another scam business in San Jose with the Pres. Nixon, the son of Donald Nixon called the foreign Investment of the Corporation, and so on. He lived there with very few problems for many years. Yes, sometimes the U.S. takes legal action against certain Americans, but that the government of Costa Rica and the people don't really like the US, trying to intimidate his country as they have done so many times in other places, ignoring national laws and even the kidnapping of some of its citizens because they were sought by the u.s. Department of Justice and the country does not give them up. To answer your question more directly, I owed my student loans when I went to Costa Rica, 23 years later, when I returned to the US I started to put it back in and paid in full. The conclusion is that if you do not earn enough money to make the payments they ask for, that you can not do a thing.
