AminaJane posted Life in Pakistan for Brit female on the Pakistan forum:
Hi all, I need any help I can get. My husband is a Pakistani national and we are currently fighting for his right to stay in the UK. I need to know what life would be like for me if I had to move to Pakistan. Please note, we have very little income so wouldn't be able to afford to live in a secure complex, his family live in Peshawar, I have pretty severe mental health problems, none of my family would be there. Thanks for any help

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. Has anyone retired to Pakistan, if so can you please provide me with some information around what your experience was like and what I should be thinking about. Thank you for your time. S

I retired to my home town Rawalpindi from New York in 2003 till 2012. In the beginning some times it was boring. But once I had like minded friends, it was great. Just make sure you have plenty of income, and spend your summer in America or Europe every year.

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.

zawar replied to the thread Moving from UK to Pakistan - need help finding work on the Pakistan forum:
Abbas685 initially posted:
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.

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.

Sincerely replied most recently 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.
