Not reluctant. ..people just don't know about there and prefer not to feed you with misleading info. I think that place is made up of a few small islands ..very small islands... and tourism is about the only thing going on there. Small local population... and I want to believe tourists always outnumber the local population. In such places... everybody knows everybody... including immigration...no place to hide... so figure out your chances of hustling or settling there.....so I heard!

you stand a high chance of being deported. i had a Guyanese man stay with me like 2 months ago (he's a PhD student). he lives and works in BVI and his daughter was born in USVI. you'll need a US/UK visa to visit these British overseas territories as a Nigerian and the rules of obtaining PR in those terrtories are strict. for real. I was in Turks and Caicos in Dec (amazing beaches..lol) and getting a PR there will take you approximately 10years on work permit and 5years married to a BOTC citizen. i am pretty sure the same is obtainable in most of these territories. These Islands are still controlled by the British which makes the people British nationals using a British passport. if you live there, you can become a British national then register for your British citizenship

Another point to note IF you eventually make it there is that these islands are small, opportunities are limited and most people are related so they basically recognize each other. things done there are based on "Padi-Padi" business. it will be tough for an outsider without connection (and most likely without money). However, money there is good though as they use the US dollar except Cayman island with their own currency which is higher in value than the USD

my point is, don't waste your money. Get a US visa, travel to USVI then you can make your 'dream' of living in BVI a reality but opportunities are limited..very limited

btw, which passport do you currently hold? i can advise you appropriately.

With the money you have to migrate.... right here in Naija is best.... the countries you are thinking about have rules and regulations...that are enforced. Naija you can really get away with almost anything...just get an idea..and you can start work on it. Other places have order...you must have lapers..permit..etc. If you can't hustle with what you have in Naija...where you are sooo familiar with everything...then I wouldn't advise to pick up and move abroad where you would have to learn almost everything from scratch.

The OP is not a Nigerian

The OP is from East Africa and mentioned in his/her post that people from his/her country can travel to BVI without a visa as long as the tourist is not staying for longer than 30 days. OP plans to get there as a tourist and overstay his/her visa to hustle and make a living. So, advising OP to stay and hustle in Nigeria does not apply here because the person you are addressing is not a Nigerian to begin with.

I think you should try looking for a bigger country to hustle in. All these small island countries depend mostly on tourism to run their economy so getting a job as a non-citizen could be challenging when you don't have a work authorization.

you're better of going to Belize with your Tanzanian passport i would encourage you however, to get an American Visa.

Plan your trip wisely, have a back up plan go with enough money to sustain you for at least a month plus.

I am from the Bahamas and I am sure that Tanzanians are required to get a visa to enter here. Besides, even if not, they would need to get visas to enter the countries they need to transit in order to get here.

Leaving one's home to try to 'hustle' illegally in another country is NEVER a good idea. The detention centre here is FULL of people from all over the world, waiting to be deported.

OP is from Tanzania. I mentioned "an East African country" because OP did state that he was from East Africa initially but did not specify which country in East Africa. And I am no psychic to know which East African country he is from if he had not revealed it later on on this thread.

I agree but sometimes people have no choice. There are many countries in the world where people are trying to forge ahead and progress in life without much luck. Some countries, you need to have connections in the right places just to get a job. Others cannot seem to get out of poverty no matter how hard they try so they are left with no other option than to look for greener pastures elsewhere.

Once upon a time, the continent of Europe was not economically rich and that prompted many white people into moving to USA, Canada and even the Caribbean in search of a better life. That is why you have Caucasians in these countries today. They are the descendants of Europeans who back in the day also sought greener pastures when life in Europe was difficult except for members of the royal families and the aristocrats. So, I won't be so quick to judge anyone seeking a better life elsewhere even if it means illegally. We don't know the condition they are in and the situation in their homeland. Some people get married to a citizen of the country they illegally migrated to and get their papers straight. In America, there are many people that came there illegally from Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and elsewhere but today, they have gotten their papers and are legal. Even Cesar Millan the Dog whisperer/dog behaviorist (see his picture attached) came to America illegally from Mexico but look at where he is today. He would not have been this rich if he had stayed back in Mexico. We don't know where our destinies lie. Some will make it in their home countries and others will make it abroad. Such is life.

Re: Traveling And Living In British Virgin Island (BVI). by momoyama: 12:47pm On Jun 21, 2016
Breaking the law of other countries, just to improve your own life is not only dishonest and disrespectful, but it is selfish, since it makes it harder for citizens of your country to travel. I am told by my Nigerian friends that Nigerians need visas to visit the UK, USA, Europe and every country you can think of. And it is very hard to get these visas, he says. That is because of selfish countrymen who go abroad with the intention of defrauding immigration authorities in the countries that permit them to enter. It is disgraceful and ALL should be send back (including the Mexican in your example, whose only achievement seems to be personal fame and enrichment, rather than helping the land of his birth). Our first duty in life is to our country. As such, we should stay in our country and try to make it work, not flee abroad and break the laws of other countries just for individual success. It is that lack of a sense of communal, collective success that seems to keep most black countries back. Personally I would feel like a failure if I went to the USA and became a big shot in another man's country while my own country remains a basket case.

I understand where you're coming from but like I said, it is what it is. I live in Nigeria but I won't be quick to judge those who have done everything in their power to make headway in their home countries but due to circumstances beyond their control, they can't seem to make it because the ruling elites are holding people down and hence decided to migrate. I will not be quick to judge because even the bible says don't judge. As for the Mexican in my example, he is a NATURALIZED U.S CITIZEN now so even though you wish him to be deported, he will not be. And he is smiling to the bank and I doubt he considers himself a failure with all the TV shows he has, the many books he has written and the numerous thriving businesses he has in the United States.

Again, I understand your point of view but I choose to see things from a different perspective. Until you have walked a mile in other people's shoes, don't be quick to judge because you have no clue what it feels like to come from a country where government policies hinder you from achieving your best within your own country. Thank your God that your country is different and allows you to prosper even if you had come from very humble beginnings.

I rest my case.

I rest my case.

I respect your views and especially respect your decision to stay and make your way in your own country. But the emboldened quote is where the difference in our VALUES lies. I do not think writing books to make money and making a ton of money and being famous are such worthy objectives in life. Of course, I want material success, but to me it is more important to be part of a successful GROUP, be that family or nation, than to simply be a one-off beneficiary of materialistic capitalism. Group power and self-reliance are more important. As for the idea that Nigeria is holding people back, I have not been there, so I cannot say if this is true. What I assume is that, like every country, it takes hard work to prosper beyond the ordinary and that this is compounded by a large population. I also understand the new president is very anti-corruption in his emphasis.

At any rate, I wish you and others the best. But I cannot agree with the gentleman who is inclined to break the laws of another country in order to hustle.

Developed in what sense? It is a small country with a population of only 350,000. But it has a very high income level and standard of living. It attracts many migrants.
