As a British subject is it easy to retire in the BVI ?
I would say that it requires a little patience i.e. it is not as easy as just moving here. There are forms to fill and procedures to follow that can take up to a year (speaking with regard to buying a house).
I am one! Buying a house requires a non resident aliens land holding licence. Then that will only allow you to be in your house in BVI for six months a year. It takes years to get a temporary residence permit, which you have to renew annually. Eventually you can apply for permanent residence, and then Belongership. It took us 32 years! Good luck!
