Hi guys,

my name is Jay. I am really interested in living in Fiji, I spent last year living in Europe and Scandinavia. I was hoping to make some friends before I made the leap.


My account is a couple of months old now, but I think I haven't posted in this thread before.

So basically my life is s*** so I just want to have one last chance to experience happiness before I accept my life is just gonna be s***  forever. So that is by trying to move from Finland to Fiji.

The thing I worry about the most is my cat. First of all I hope that she's gonna survive the transportation with the quarantines and everything. Then I hope that in case I have to come back from Fiji to Finland, I can take her back with me. The problems are money and time, but mostly money. If I go under 10k, I might not have enough money to take her back with me, yet I would have to leave the country :'(

The plan is to prolly invest to get a permit to stay, which is why money is a huge issue especially if the investment fails.

Hi im carol, retired chef fr Australia, bought a house ,now perm resident, would like to enjoy daytime lunch with other residents . I am on FB.  Live near pacific harbour

I'm sorry about the bad language. The day I wrote that post I was in a bad state mentally, but now I'm better.

I live here fr Australia  what info do u need ?

Hello Carol
My hubby and are are planning a permanent move to Fiji within the next few months, from Melbourne.

Selling our house and accessing super funds, so that we can buy a residence and also a holiday rental for income, as we are still too young to retire.

How did you find the move? What hiccups, if any did you have?

How do you find life in Pac Harbour and how easy or difficult was it to buy a house there?

Had you been to Fiji prior to relocating?  We have been a few times and sussed out where we would like to live, etc.

Thinking seriously about Pac Harbour as the place for our rental.

Hope to hear from you soon :)

Hi, I'm Hellen. I have just arrived in Fiji as GM for a start-up company. After having a very full social calendar in Papua New Guinea for many years, and the greatest group of friends a girl could want, I am now starting over and would like to meet other expats living in Suva. I will be heading out for a week or so next week, but once settled in my new home, I would love to start entertaining again. Please send me a message. Cheers, H.


Thanks for this forum. I signed up because I might be working in Fiji soon if I will be the luckiest applicant to be accepted to work at Fiji National University. I want to know if how is life living in Fiji, How much is the cost of housing or flats there? Is there an income tax deducted? How is transportation in Fiji? what is the cost of living there? how about the security?

Thanks. Any information will be much appreciated.


Hi Mann,

Accommodation should be supplied by your employer, but you can get some well priced housing. Yes, tax it taken out. Getting around is easy, even if you don't have a car. Buses and taxis are cheap. I hope this helps.

Thank you so much for this information. This really help me and I if  i will be taken in there to work, I will ask my employer if my accommodation will be provided. Thanks much.

Hi ,
Life in Fiji is always an adventure; sometimes surprising.
I live here since 2012 and it is a beautiful country.  The people
are friendly but also opportunistic due to the poverty.
The weather is mostly fine.  We do get cyclones sometimes;
Winston last year was very strong and did lots of damage.
People are used to starting over here.  Lots of things grow
here; even in a small garden plot.  Some items are difficult
to get and often come late.  Still, we will continue to live
here.  It is a militaristic government and some freedoms are
