Good Luck New Caledonia is just about to take a vote on independence, You will have to tell us about your self to tell you if it's possible to live there. As residency in NC is only available to French Residents of France IE French Passport Holders.

Poverty Ratios are very high, And there is a fair bit of violence towards Western/European background It's Nice. Hospital treatment is delt with in Aus or Mainland France for major work, As I have a friend who has to keep flying back from there to deal with Cancer. The advantage to him is the Government pick up the tab for the whole family unit to fly back to France, The disadvantage is he Has cancer and it's disrupting life some what.

Im going to dig out a couple of links....

And Quoted

"It is important to note that EU regulations regarding employment and right of abode do not apply to New Caledonia and British nationals have no right to work or to extend their stay beyond the initial three months without special authorisation from the local authorities."

Thank you that would be good,
OH would have a visa organised through his employer

I've been trying to find info on schools & real estates in Noumea but no rentals come up so am thinking it may not be very popular, hence the difficulties they have filling the position, we are currently in Sydney, and a year in NC appeals to me if it is workable
