Hi Bazza, welcome to BE!

Do you have any thoughts as to where you want to retire to - I am assuming you aren't going to retire in China.

BTW please take a moment to review the site rules linked in the menu bar above.

Thanks for the welcome. My wife and I are thinking of:
England (Derbyshire) - where we lived for 20 years and where our grown up daughters are still based.
Zimbabwe - always be home for me, despite whats happened to it.
New Zealand - where my wife's family have emmigrated to.
Malaysia - selfishly enjoy the Asian lifestyle that we have grown accustomed to and take advantage of MM2H programme.

BTW - I want to follow the rules of this site. Am I supposed to send out a separate post that is more specific? Appreciate your guidance

No, not really. There are specific country forums for each of those (for the UK there is "Moving Back to the UK"), except Zimbabwe, and I don't think we have any regular members in Zimbabwe. However there is an Africa forum, but it doesn't see much traffic.

What I would say is that if you start posting in all of the forums simultaneously, especially as a new member, you may irritate some people, so I would recommend focusing, or at least starting, where your greatest interest is. And I might be wrong, but I don't think there is a retirement visa or a "non-dependent family members" visa for New Zealand. Maybe you could start in the NZ forum to investigate if it is even a possibility.
