Moving to Sousa

Good morning
My husband and I are planning to move to Sousa from Canada next year. My husband would be receiving a pension. We are trying to find out whether this would be taxed by DR as well as Canada. Have not been able to find out as yet.
Also wondering if there are work from home online jobs for myself available or would it be best to line something up from Canada before moving?
Any advise you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Dee Dee

Hi,
you should try renting first and figure out if you really want to invest long term. I can recommend the complex where I bought my place they are really nice people and offer financing. check them out!
Also, i am also interested in the online job if you do find out.
This is my email if you want the information.

Thanks for keeping me I'm mind. We like Sosua. We are retired so we don't go for the nightlife. But there is a good clinic here, two good grocery stores and most people have bEen very helpful. There is a fair bit of prostituition and I imagine the night life can be a bit risqué. The traffic is a nightmare. No rhyme nor reason and very fast. I don't know if you've driven here, but it's an experience.We have met a few people that have been here for ten plus years, fairly affluent, and none of them use the local banking system. They have all tried it but got tired of being nicked and dimed to death. I will look into the HSBC a, it maybe the answer. Now we have direct deposit in CA and just access funds via Atm....there is one machine
in Sosua and the closest office is down the road in Cabarete. This week we are going to Luperon to have a look around....more rural, slower pace and lots of sailing, our first love.

Hi
I will let you know if I find something with the online job situation. We have not looked into the banking yet as we would not be moving until summer 2016. We are with Scotia bank as well, but I did find an article this morning about HSBC being global, having your account set up before you even arrive. Easy access for expats.
How do you like living in Sousa.
