You who live on AC are the experts to rely on, so please tell me am I dreaming or is it possible for two people to live there on two thousand dollars a month? Please let me know, all plan may change. Thankyou

Assuming you find a 2 bedroom apt. for $750US per month you'll have $20US per person per day to live on. It can be done as long as you don't want much of a social life and eat cheap.

Thing is that, I believe, you have to show an income of $2000US EACH to become resident without employment.

Does the USD being 2-1 have no bearing?

All these "rules" are for people who are applying for residency or retirement status. If you simply come here and stay, renewing your tourist visa every 30 days, then there's no $$ requirement...and yes you can live on US$2,000 per month.

Jesse, did you mean $2000 for both or just one? I think it;d be hard for 2 to live on just $1000 each.

If they got a place for $750 a month, wouldn't they have to pay utilities on top of that too?
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Is 750 US a month the average cost to rent?

Approxamently how much is utilities?

How about food and house hold products? what is the average prices on these items?
say a weeks of groceries for 2-3 people?
