@rickcamargo92 Hi.  I am trying to find out what the visa situation is in Sao Tome.  Internet info is conflicting.  I would like to stay long term and have my own income from England.  Maybe buy a house. I realise that foreigners can't buy land.  At the moment I am looking for a flight from Europe where I am at the moment but most of them are for 30 to 50 hours, not sure why.  If the living situation is Ok and I can get a visa very long term, my family would want to join me.  We are not expecting luxury.  Thank you.

@davecroker   Hi. I wondered if you made it to Sao Tome.  I am also looking to move to Sao Tome but I am not sure about the visa situation.  I would want to rent and in the future buy a house.  The visa information on the internet is conflicting, so I wondered if you managed to get their.  Thank you.
