Fiji: shipping container to Fiji:

UB Freight in Lautoka. I have used them many times. They are professional, honest by Fiji standards and good pricing

Fiji: Permaculture Farms Fiji?:

In terms of location the East Coast has a LOT more rain and is generally cooler than the West side. We are in the north west and have had zero rain for 4 months and it is hot. So if you want easy farming coral coast in the south or the greater Suva side is greener. But yes most things grow like crazy everywhere.

Fiji: Honda/ House:

More info please. Phone me if you like 8677334

Fiji: Moving from us to Fiji with young kids:

Hard question to answer as Fiji is so diverse. I would recommend coming to Suva, (capital of Fiji, largest city but not rains a lot and has a lot of crime in parts) or Lautoka, (second biggest city, much drier and hotter, less crime) to start so you at least have reasonable shopping and some expat style accommodation available. Then have a look around and decide what sort of life you want. If your husband has reasonable skills and get a work permit employment is easy. There is a huge shortage of skilled people to employ here.

Fiji: Teaching English:

Ha. They are MEANT to speak English in schools however most of them are either Fijian or HIndi. I am right next door to a college and the teachers can't even speak English well. It would be very easy to get work but getting PAID work could be harder. You can work for free without a work visa so you could volunteer anywhere. If you want a real job you would have to go through some hoops. YOur best avenue would be the expat schools who actually want good teachers. There is a large one in NAdi and a few others dotted around Viti Levu

Fiji: Asking for detailed advice on relocation:

Your biggest issue is going to be getting to stay here if you don't have off shore income or a formal job offer. Start watching the job vacancies on the Fiji times and Fiji Sun web sites. Your own business is a great way to survive here but if you have good skills it wont be hard to get work here. After the last coup a huge percentage of white collar Indians have fled Fiji so there is a huge shortage of skilled workers in several sectors. Start applying for jobs online you may be able to come sooner than you think!

Fiji: Land - rent or buy Coral Coast:

There is plenty of land available for purchase in that area. You just need to get a local to negotitate the price and make sure they don't know an expat is involved. There is a fair bit of freehold down that coast as well. It is very cheap once you get the locals involved.. And no restriction on foreign ownership under 2 acres.

Fiji: Extended stay in Fiji and would like some guidance!:

There is plenty of cash work over here but better to stay legal. Getting a work visa is a lot of red tape but possible. Start applying ASAP.

Fiji: you guys might remember me:

You would be safe enough providing you weren't in the interior or close to Suva but the mosquitos might suck you dry :-)
