Is the only option to pay the one time fee for permanent residency which is too pricey for our blood? We plan on renting for a year for sure but in the long term would like have some kind of permanency that does not require a $100,000 fee?

I would not bother with citizenship. We have friends who live there full-time, and once in a while they have to leave the island, also ask for temporary extensions. It is a bit of a nuisance, but not a big deal. And I would pick Dominica over Belize. Dominica has a lot fewer problems and does not have things like scorpions and tarantulas. There is an advantage to being an island and not part of the South American continent.

thanks for that advice I get it a lot of countries are like that and I can look up what the visa extensions are - in Belize it is only 30 days hopefully it's 90 days in Dominica or more? I think it's close to time for some traveling and feet on the ground "research". Be the nicest research we've ever done, I'm hoping!

Do your friends live and work there? I have lived and work many places without the proper credentials. Are they relatively relaxed there? Any information is greatly appreciated. You can PM me if you like. Thanks

Just to clarify that Belize is part of the central american continent and not part of south america. Having said that, I would have expected more knowledge and less prejudice to a beautiful continent like south america in an expat forum...
