Discussion in 'Living Overseas' started by CptDanjou, Apr 5, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Where can a Brit live and work without to much bureaucratic nonsense ?

    What options do we have if you want to live somewhere pleasant that speaks English and does not make you jump through hoops for visas/residency ? Hawaii sounds great and uses the Union Jack in its flag but its septic ,NZ and Aussie also use our flag but residency is far from straight forward.


    The globe has a few British Overseas Territories but can we just up and move there?

    If anyone wants to sponsor me to do a world recce , pm me.
     
  2. Falklands?
     
  3. Pitcairn Islands? That's a British Overseas territory, nice and quiet, population is around 50.
     
  4. You must have missed my "pleasant" requirement.
     
  5. Oh come along now, it's got a Mount Pleas......

    Coat on already

    tristan de cunha would suit you.

    the national hobby is going to their holiday sheds over the hill and competative potatoe growing.
     
  9. Caymen Islands.
     
  10. Alaska. Ok it's septic but Sarah Palin apart, very few Alaskan's are actually happy about that. The place is an outdoorsman paradise.
     
  11. Monserrat.

    They need people to move there.
     
  12. But there are penguins. People like penguins.
     
  13. Tristan da cuhna. The only overseas territory to use the british pound.
    200 families. Only 8 family names. You could add some fresh blood and try and rid the asthma gene that blights the inhabitants.

    Saint Vincent and Grenadines.

    Property in town still cheap, and new international airport with direct flights to London opens 2015. Expect a property boom then.
