Lets face it, anyplace would be better to live than Moscow in Russia, perhaps not Bulgaria?
Belize is okay. Here is a retirement pagehttp://folkmusicfl.tripod.com/retirementinbelize
That said the newspaper just said a bunch of Russians just got swore in as citizens in a government ceremony this past week.
The routine is to come in as a tourist, pay a monthly fee, get a work permit in six months and then after a year apply for Permanent Residency. Five years after that you can apply for citizenship.
Once you get Permanent Residency, you can just about do anything a citizen can. If you pass 2 1/2 years of living in Belize you are a true Belizean and will never fit anywhere else.
