As an EU citizen, you can live in overseas French departments without a visa:

France
French overseas départements are outside EU fiscal VAT area but in the EU. French overseas territories and collectivities are outside the EU. Nevertheless their citizens are European citizens too.

[edit]
French Guiana
French Guiana is a French overseas département and therefore seen as an integral part of France. Full EU law applies there. As in France, the euro is legal tender.

[edit]
French Polynesia
French Polynesia is not part of the EU, and does not use the euro. However, the Franc Pacifique is tied to the euro at 655.957 FCP per euro.

[edit]
Martinique and Guadeloupe
The Caribbean islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe are French overseas départements and therefore seen as an integral part of France. Full EU law applies there. As in France, the euro is legal tender.

[edit]
Mayotte
Mayotte, an island between Madagascar and Africa, is a French overseas collectivity (collectivité territoriale) and therefore not part of the EU. The euro is legal tender.

[edit]
Réunion
Réunion, an island in the Indian Ocean, is a French overseas département and therefore seen as an integral part of France. Full EU law applies there. As in France, the euro is legal tender.

[edit]
Saint-Pierre and Miquelon
The islands of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon are a French overseas collectivity (collectivité territoriale), and therefore not part of the EU. The euro is legal tender, though Canadian and US dollars are also accepted.

It's British territory, but even for a British citizen there seem to be restrictions inasmuch as the island governor decides who can stay. On a more practical note, housing is in short supply, I believe.

I wouldn't know too much about the details, but my mate had a British passport and was born there, lived till he was 12...sounds like a nice place at least, minus the technology....certainly no traffic problems
And it's got some history behind it, the holding place of Boney anyway

If your mate was born in St Helena then he's probably entitled to live there if he wishes.

People from St Helena only became full British citizens on 21 May 2002, although before that date some 'Saints' had British citizenship through links with the UK. Virtually everyone from the territory also holds British overseas territories citizenship.

The fact that people from St Helena now have British citizenship does not give people from the UK the right to live there.

On Ireland, we were in Dublin earlier this year and found it was more expensive than London. Apparently it's the Euro effect.

Well i have been in goa India, for two years.
Its by the sea.
Warm climate year round. Monsoon it gets rainy but still warm.
You easily get 6 month visas.
Which can be extended to year visas at little cost.
And its cheap.

And since May 2004, I believe British citizens can live there freely. However finding employment in Malta may be difficult, and not everyone will find the culture there (especially it's strongly Catholic basis) to their liking.

Seriously, going back to this 'Malaysia My Second Home', don't discount this scheme.

I have looked at this closely & what with currently living in Hong Kong, Malaysia is just down the road for me!

They have good food, cheapish property & just about everyone speaks English (in various forms).

Love beaches, and pretty 'warm' all year round........sorted!

Oh, by the way, it's a bloody long way from the UK.

Good luck!

Forget Denmark! We have a perfectly foul climate here in the winter, and the paperwork to get a residency permit, (and pretty much anything actually), is copious.
