When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Fiji, they said...

"Like everywhere be careful with giving away too much information. We could have easily been taken advantage of many times. Once in Fiji there seems to be a "Coconut grapevine" and if you want something or to rent somewhere somebody always knows how to get it or to arrange it for you. Anything we wanted there was a person for it. Again be careful about prices charged. Unfortunately where we were living was very disadvantaged and while we were not wealthy we did do a lot for the village and hence everyone thought we were rich," wrote a member who made the move to Sigatoka Valley, Fiji.

"Fiji is a tropical paradise with a unique culture and friendly people. It is important to research the local customs and laws before moving to Fiji. Expats should also be aware of the cost of living, which is generally higher than in other parts of the world. Additionally, it is important to make sure that all necessary visas and permits are obtained before arriving in Fiji. Expats should also be aware of the tropical climate and the potential for natural disasters such as cyclones and floods. Finally, it is important to research the healthcare system in Fiji and make sure that adequate health insurance is in place," explained one expat living in Fiji.
