(CNBC)   Caribbean islands of Antigua & Barbuda, St. Kitts & Nevis, and St. Lucia slash the cost of buying citizenship, just in case the 2020 US elections don't go your way. Still way more expensive than Staten Island, though   (cnbc.com) divider line

Go teach English in S.E. Asia or Costa Rica for a few years if you're serious.

Buying your way into a visa isn't going to work for the majority of people

I regret that I didn't stay in the EU long enough to get citizenship. I was four years in and could have stayed for the foreseeable future.

Belize had a decent retirement option a few years back, you needed to prove an income of $2000/mo, such as a pension or investments, and that was about it, you're in. You could even move a bunch of your stuff there, including a car, and pay no duty. I think it was $50k worth of stuff you could bring in, plus the car.

Lots of good retirement options down there. A friend of mine retired and now lives in Ecuador, post-pandemic I may start visiting in the winter and consider wintering there.

The more you know dot jpeg.

I've been looking hard at Belize. Warm weather, speak English, about half the cost of living than in the States, restrictive gun laws, large ex-pat community. It's always high on the list of crime per capita, but my small town is actually worse.

I started a running program that was done in Costa Rica, and the trainer talks about the standard of living, the blue zone, the cloud forests, etc. I started to look into what it takes to move there, and it seems feasible for entry at least. Definitely something to keep in mind as the world continues to burn.

Did this at 23 after a semester in Thailand. Ditched the Psych degree and it led to an awesome career in teaching 5 years there 7 years here and I'm moving back permanently next summer a year delayed for obvious reasons.


Also, I will stick with my US citizenship and just get visas :shrug:

Good to know but I hear it's a lot cheaper to move to Kokomo.
