    Is it possible? Yes, if they jump through enough hoops. Is it likely? I doubt it.

    The Department of Education has no jurisdiction to administratively garnish your wages (garnish your wages w/o obtaining a judgment first) in another country. However, they could sue you in the foreign jurisdiction and if they obtain a judgment, use whatever means the law in that jurisdiction allows to collect, which depending on the jurisdiction could be more draconian than what the Dept. of Ed could do in the U.S. You might want to stop advertising your current location
