yeah but she's a bit clingy, high maintenance and to be honest the sex wasn't that great either.

An added perk is that most under 40 single females on cruise ships tend to leave their knickers and their morals on the quayside

Great thread actually, it is annoying how hard it is for Brits to get into somewhere like Oz, NZ or the US unless you have a million quid to invest or a much needed skill. Keep the suggestions coming. My idea is to actually split my time between two countries on a tourist visa (accommodation costs covered by selling my UK house and buying a condo in each country)...

Why would one need to be your original country? Say doing three months in Chile and three months in USA on and on, would be within both countries visa laws. I am 50, BTW and live off investment income.

Not enough money, I think. Enough to live fine but not enough to satisfy Oz, NZ or US reg's... I have being doing Thailand for a while but have a couple of rather irate Thai women on my case, which could mean a beating or even death so I have to get out of Dodge whilst still able to.

Although income from the UK is taxable directly, as far as I'm aware.
It would be worth checking if these tax rules still exist as they may have changed in recent years.

If you take Irish citizenship (after 5 years residence) then the Irish Revenue may well take a view you're domiciled there and impose tax on worldwide income.

Although there's no strong reason for British citizens resident in Ireland to take Irish citizenship unless they really want to. Children born there will be Irish citizens automatically (the changes coming up to the automatic citizenship by birth rule in Ireland will not affect children born to British citizens).




Northern Ireland offers a different option, within the United Kingdom.

The Isle of Man (a Crown Dependency, not part of the UK) may also be worth a look. Favourable tax code, and full British citizenship, but does have some local immigration controls.
