I am a second generation American/British Pakistani and looking to retire to Pakistan. My efforts to find information online about retiring to Islamabad have been been fruitless.

mome305 posted Query about applying French student visa on the Pakistan forum:
I am worried about applying for the visa. My departure date is first week of September 2015 for master studies. As I am recently graduated and will receive my final transcript in June. I am afraid that at the time of Visa application may be my BACHELOR degree certificate will not be issued. Most probably I will be having Provisional degree certificate and Official transcript. What to do If at the time of Visa application one don't have Bachelor degree certificate? I wonder anyone have experienced the similar situation? Please Need Help on this

I've been with my Pakistani partner for 4 years in the UK, since he came over to study. However his visa expires in January so he will need to return to Pakistan if he cant find work by then. However his father doesn't want me to come back with his son. If we were to go against his wishes and move to Pakistan together, would i find life very difficult without the support of family. Also my partners family are from Lahore, would that be the safest city to move to, thanks.

Moving to Pakistan is not an easy task.. everything is much different than UK... People are nice and also stupid who keep staring at you all the time... For your safety choose a place in DHA Lahore and if you want a secure future.. Make him buy a home under your name... In future you dont want the guy to have another wife and leaving you because of his family pressure.

Hi there, Lahore is pretty safe to move around. Try to travel before night or if you travel in the night time then go for the city center or busy market areas. Don't have to be adventurous in the night time just as a precaution. Now, the thing is if the guy has been with you for some years then he shouldn't have a problem with you. His family however can have a problem. So maybe he needs to get you a separate place to live otherwise life in the same house as his parents and other family members could be hell...... So if he can rent you a place in safe locality such as DHA, Bahria town etc.....then you'd enjoy life as usual......while can plan further what you both wanna do.

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

Hi I understand that making a move back to Pakistan is not an easy one as I also made the same move a few years ago. However I can say that there are plenty of opportunities for you here especially in the private sector. The real estate and construction sector is booming. Bahria Town is one example and there are other developers too. The only problem is that as you mentioned you don't have any relevant experience you should be willing to start from scratch. Otherwise you can also look for opportunities in BPOs, Touchstone, Abacus, SNL Financials to name a few. Finally, you'll need some references too as looking for jobs through proper channel won't prove to be fruitful.
