(edited to put the most important info first)
Next year I'll be banned from exiting egypt and will be wanted for service.
When I renew my passport, it will be renewed for a maximum of 3 years, but likely just 1 or 2 years. I can exit the borders in the next few months only as a tourist. When I exit, it will be with the intention of staying out for at least 4 years.
I'm sharing with you my thought process, because perhaps I'm missing something important. I'm looking for advice on how to ensure I stay out, or if you know of any legal pathways from a visitor to a taxpayer. Put yourselves in my shoes if you will, hold my passport in your hands and share with me your thought process, questions that come up to your minds, factors and risks you'll consider, steps you might take...
Edit after a conversation: I've done a lot of research on what to do next, things that might immediately come to mind like work visas, study programs, asking for asylum, attempting to get an exemption and such. What best fits my local time-constraints/circumstances (and therefore what I'm pursuing) is arriving as a tourist, and figuring things out from there in a way that ensures I don't return for those 4 years. There are a few candidate countries where this plan makes sense.
For reference, I'm in relatively good health and fit for service. Being able to exit the country and finishing my higher education are mutually exclusive. I have work experience as a programmer. I have some money I saved up that will cover my travel expenses and allow me to remain on my own in an average city for a year or so. My country is a bit of a police-state and police conduct is in many cases arbitrary. Trying to remain a fugitive locally until I'm unfit for service is very risky.
In 2 years I'll be drafted in the egyptian armed forces. It is compulsory and is essentially a glorified free-labor force for military private business, or a police force which cooperates with civilian cops, or a force of easy-to-sacrifice barely-trained pawns on the borders and in displacing natives in sinai and matrouh, all depending on which division I land in. That's not to go over more abstract reasons for objecting.
I don't want to be part of that fucked establishment one way or another. It has killed way too many innocent egyptians in literal massacres and mass death rows, then imprisoned, forcibly-disappeared, or exploited the rest. It has then taken the green and the dry and returned to be a puppet of empire after a brief liberation via revolution. Not only old empires but young ones like those of arabia.
The straw for me was it essentially taking part in the gaza blockade, and sending home or putting to jail anyone who dares approach the crossing, because they'd investigate war-profiteering shit like the USD 5-12K informal fees placed on every individual (and sometimes on aid trucks!) to cross to safety1.
I refuse to be part of the egy military on principle, not because it might be hard or unfair.
I've got a few things on my mind that I'm researching… Which countries would let me visit visa-free in case I had no time to go through the visa process and had to exit asap? Could I just jump around those? How would I act if my passport expires but I must still remain out for a little bit more? Which countries are the least likely to deport me in case I'm forced to overstay, vs countries that rarely deport? Which countries offer a legal pathway from visitor to resident without having to exit their borders? Which countries have strongly-knit communities I can be part of and contribute to so that I'm not stranded wherever I end up (legally or illegally) staying? If I have to overstay, where is safest and where would I be most cooperative with, useful to, and protected by the people around me? Where would I least likely have to interact with the state in a way that requires me to be legit (home address, bank account, ...), perhaps laboring in a rural town for my food and shelter? ...
