  • Financial status to emigrate

    We are looking to emigrate next year. The application for retired residency states you must have annuity or other pension payments to make up the minimum income required. Is this a strict rule or can other investments that provide an income be used. eg. ISA's and Unit trusts etc

    I have gone into considerable depth on the immigration issue. My stepson lives in CT with SA wife and child. At first, I thought it would be easy ... however, I now have to have an income of 20,000 ZAR for life (however long that may be!) and I have to have a PCN (police computer network) clearance from EVERY country that I have lived in since I was 18! (England, Germany, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, etc.)

    My wife can go in as a blood relative of her son ... personally, I have given up.
