Hello all. There is a high chance that we will be relocating to Grenada. Does anyone have any information about expat schools? My children are 4 and 7. Thanks for your time.
candilicence replied on July 30, 2015 with:
Hi, I heard back from Pat Hughes who runs a pre school in Grenada. She wrote .... I no longer take in children of 7 years and older. The 4 year old we could accommodate There are many schools that take in expat children. Montessori Westmorland Grace Lutheran and more fee paying schools In fact most local schools will. It depends on the child and parents and what they feel most comfortable with. I know Pat well and she has been successfully running her school for many years. I also know the principal at Grace Lutheran and was impressed with their program when I toured it a couple of years ago. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Let me do a little research for you and I will get back to you. I've got friends who should be able to provide some recommendations.

Hi, It depends on what you are looking for and what part of the Island you wish to live in. Accomodation prices are fairly reasonably, and you can get basic accomodation. if you are looking to rent privately or lease an apartment

We are looking at moving to Grenada and we are wondering if expats feel safe here?
Jamesdic replied most recently with:
Yes. Grenada has one of lowest crime rates of Caribbeaan Islands. There has been an increase of home break-ins lately. These acts of vandalism seems to happen when houses are left unoccupied for long periods of time.

We have been searching the internet and can not find an answer. Is there a minimum financial amount that you have to prove you have coming in on a monthly basis? Some countries stipulate a dollar figure. Thank you so much
Jamesdic replied most recently with:
Hi, I am not certain that there is a minimum financial obligation requirement. Check this website for further information and contracts. http://www.grenadaembassyusa.org/consular-services/consular-visitors/

pastorbruce initially posted:
My wife and I are in our mid 60's and retired with a monthly income of about $2800. USD take home. Will that be sufficient to live comfortably on? Are there many Americans living there? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, including whether we should begin by renting or buying and whether we should bring our cars over or not. Also, are there churches there? Thank you.

I LOVE Grenada and plan to spend part of each year there shortly. The people are wonderful, the island is lush, weather wonderful and it is below the hurricane belt. AND it is definitely a third world country, with a lot of poverty and very high unemployment. It's not easy to get things done there. Many people have traveled there and fell head over heels in love (I'm one of them) but I would suggest you take a long vacation there first to see if it is a fit for your family before you contemplate moving there since your wife has concerns.
pastorbruce replied most recently with:
candilicence - I appreciate your taking the time to give me that information. As for any move to Granada, being the adventurous one in the family, I am ready to try it out immediately. My wife, on the other hand has flatly come down against it. So, I think for now my vacation time there will be spent online from Arizona, USA just looking, reading, and drooling. Thank you again, and may God bless you.

user13 initially posted:
Hi folks. Hoping for some advice and the answers to some questions. I'm looking to move abroad and Grenada is one of the places I'm considering. I do have a couple of hurdles however. To begin with, I'm on social security disability. I receive only $885 a month. Am I going to be able to survive comfortably there on that? For me, comfortable means internet and air conditioning. Also, I'm a felon and a registered sex offender in the US. Is that going to be an issue as far as residency is concerned? Before I get any snarky comments, I met a young lady in a bar nearly 20 years ago who turned out to be underage. I'm not a rapist or a child molester. Those two issues are also the reasons I want to leave the US. Any advice or answers will be much appreciated.
peanutmonkey replied most recently with:
Hi, The amount quoted will not be enough for renting and cost of living and other expenses. The rate for the US is static, you wold be looking at roughly EC 2,345 a month.
candilicence replied most recently with:
Hi; I've been to Grenada many times (but don't live there). In general, I think the cost of living is high compared with other areas within the Caribbean so you might struggles on an $885 income. Also, I've applied for residency and they do a thorough police background check. Unfortunately, I do not think they would be open due to approving you due to your circumstances. Please use these comments and potential guidance only and continue to do your own personal research.

candilicence initially posted:
I will be traveling to Grenada, West Indies for 2 months next year (prob. Jan-Feb 2015) trying to see how I can get 90 lb. dog from US (most likely Miami) to Grenada and then back. Ship/boat that would take him and us preferred. Appreciate any guidance/insight. Thanks, Candi
candilicence replied most recently with:
Susan; Thank you so much for the information. We're coming from US but I'll bet the requirements are the same or similar. Because of your reply, I've contacted Grenada to find out what is needed from the US. hanks again.

You will need to apply for a Pet Permit via Grenada High Commission http://grenadahclon.co.uk/consular-services.php Good Luck Susan
