What precautions one should take while working as a contract worker for a foreign company? How is invoicing or payments done in this case? What are the potential dangers and benefits?

ALWAYS have airplane fare home!!!
Seriously, contract is great, but one should realize u can be gone "click" just that fast. If you plan to live there and find additional work, have enough in the bank for living expenses lasting several months. If not, get an open-ended airline ticket to return to your home.
If this does not work, have a prepaid calling card to call a friend for a loan!

Well, I forgot to mention that I'll be working from my current location for a foreign company, but in that case I am quiting my current job. Is the risk worth it?
