I would seriously consider a Cyber security position overseas, but I don't possess a CISSP, just GIAC certifications, no security clearance either, except public trust.
I have a question, do these jobs really pay any better than similar jobs in the United States, or is it just because your working lots of overtime and the first 100k is tax free your make good money?

The Cyber job isnt limited to CISSP. A GSLC or CISM can be used, too. Glad you asked, let me modify the original post.
In Afghanistan, danger pay is 35% and hardship pay is 35%.
For 60-hour workweek, only the first 40hours qualifies for a 70% uplift. What is uplift? This is your basepay multiplied by 70%.

If I wasn't married I would be all over this lol.
The work hours don't bother me and the experience would provide some awesome conversation at future interviews!
