A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to Joshua Wood at: joshua@expatexchange.com.

I want to move to Pakistan from the USA for many reasons, and affordable health care is one of them. In the USA, if you are very rich, then you don't care about healthcare costs. If you are very poor or pretend to be poor, you get Medicaid, and you don't pay. But for the rest of us, healthcare is a joke. You pay, pay, pay, and still don't feel better. You never know what a doctor will charge you until after you've seen them. This is the only thing you have to purchase without knowing the price. Its ridiculous. And every single time, there are surprise charges on the bill that you never knew you would get. Doctors in the USA are dying for money, so in the process they are eager to cut you (surgery) any chance they get. They want to buy a bigger house, a new car, want to go on a vacation, or are bitter for the hardship during their residency, and need to let your blood for quick money. We had a misdiagnosis for a family member by at least 3 doctors. But our family member went to Pakistan, had a minor surgery, no organ removal, and feels fine now.

Hi, I recently travelled to Pakistan and loved every second of it and am actively looking to move there permanently. My parents were both born in Pakistan but I was born and bred in UK but have been constantly visiting since I was a child. I understand the culture and way of life in Pakistan and won't have any issues living there, however, the only problem I am finding is that I am struggling to find any decent jobs. I have no real specialist area, as I graduated in BSc Building Surveying 3 years ago but did not go into the field. Instead, I have got experience in Sales, Customer Service, Security and Claims Management. However, I am interested in any work that may be appropriate and has a reasonable salary. Please could you offer me any advice on this matter. Thank You

Try learning software development. Its not as difficult as engineering. You can take a short course where you are, or If you have a place to stay in Pakistan with relatives, you could take a software training and certification in Pakistan.

zawar posted Moved to Pakistan, came back, now want to move again. on the Pakistan forum on June 27, 2015:
Somewhere on the internet it says, if your dreaming of moving to Pakistan, spend a summer there, and you'll come running back. In 2014, we did just that. The opposite has happened. We want to move to Pakistan for ever. This is the second time we've got the "Move to Pakistan" fever. First time in 2009, we moved to Pakistan. We stayed with my wife's parents. I'm rasied in the USA and as a child we used to go every couple of years. To this day, I can't get Pakistan out of my mind. After getting married, I quit my job and lived in Pakistan with my new wife for a year. Best time ever. Just like all Pakistanis, my parents always complain about Pakistan. Yet, they themselves used Pakistan for their education (father is doctor), moved to the US and did well. Yet other than helping family, I can't say they've really ever given anything back to their homeland. They kind of hate Pakistan for whatever reasons. So, when we moved in 2009, my mother also "moved." Actually, she went after us and caused so much problems within the extended family and inlaws, we had to come back after a year. When back in the USA, we changed states just to get away from her. Since we're older and wiser, I think we will have a better plan this time. I will share for others to use once I've got it together.

wats the fastest way to go there in pakistan...tourist visa or fiance visa? and wat requirements for fiance visa?
Sincerely replied on August 26, 2014 with:
Moving to Pakistan. Really. Are you out of ideas on where to move. Well, it's your call. When you apply for a visa by post, include the visa fees and and a $ 100 crisp bill for "baksheesh" or bribe. Your visa will be processed right away. Be careful, it's the eastern version of the wild west.

catapam posted Diplomatic enclave Islamabad on the Pakistan forum:
Hi! I am moving to Islamabad in 2-3 months. I am thinking to go to diplomatic enclave instead of taking a house for security reasons. Can someone tell me if there are some shops, gyms, pools inside diplomatic enclave? It is allowed to my driver to drive the car inside of the enclave? I am thinking in case of buying food, water and so on. In case there are shops inside how are the prices compare with outside. Thank you
