Default Can you do amateur boxing in a country or state you're not a citizen/resident of?

Can you do amateur boxing in a country or state you're not a citizen/resident of? I was wondering because I want to keep doing amateur boxing while I'm getting my Master's Degree next year(hopefully, provided I get accepted to another college), and the American colleges I'm applying to I won't be a resident of when I get there(Washington, Wisconsin, maybe California). I also thought about applying to a Euro college like the University of Stockholm(the tuition there seems to be "free" and paid for by the government) and I know Euro boxing has good opportunities. But I was wondering if you could do any type of amateur boxing matches in places you're not a resident or citizen of? And I'm guessing being a part of tournaments or any types of advancing events would be tougher to be part of for nonresidents?
Just wondering.

People fight outside their countries all the time, so I'd say yes.

I know here (Canada) for advancing tournaments you do need to be a resident, or landed immigrant, or some such thing. I am fairly sure it is similar in the states also, as I know I can't just go compete in their golden gloves, or any advancing tournaments. But I do fight there and in their club shows. I'd look into it more here but seeing as you are going to the states, why not send the commision an e-mail and ask them what the procedure would be? They may have some sort of thing in place for this for students and who knows, maybe have a form or something you could do ahead of time to allow for it, the advancing tournaments.

It doesn't matter if you're a resident of the state you live in. You're registered with USA Boxing, all you do is transfer your LBC when you move.
