An Expat Talks about Living in Suva, Fiji

Submitted by gloriawalker

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Suva

Describe how you "dreamed" expat life would be before you moved overseas. Please provide as much detail as possible.

My dream was that the University of South Pacific would be receptive of me as a professional. I hoped that diversity was a norm. After almost year I have experienced landlords taking money by over charging me in rent and keeping the bond (advanced rent0 even when you comply with the lease. Landlords on the property in your flat trying to tell you when to come home, who can visit and how long even if you are in separate building. Purchases of items are sometimes not honored on return including places like MH department stores. If you look like a Fijian the IndoFijians will mistreat you openly and become upset when you respond. FIJI IS NOT THE KIND PLACE PEOPLE SAY IT IS.

How has your expat experience met the expectations you dreamed about before you moved abroad?

How has your expat experience NOT met the expectations you dreamed about before you moved abroad?

I HAVE BEEN MISTREATED BY EMPLOYER. MY PAY DEDUCTIONS ARE TAKEN AND NOT DEPOSITED AS PROMISED. I HAVE MISTREATED BY LANDLORDS TAKING MY MONEY, OVERCHARGING ME AND ENTERING MY PRIVATE SPACE. I HAVE PURCHASED ITEMS AND RETURNED THEM TO LEARN I CANNOT RETURN THEM.
