Isolated far away from civilization rests the island, Tristan da Cunha that is at the end of the world, located in the southern Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the three constituents of the British Overseas Territories of Saint Helena, Ascension, and Tristan da Cunha.
There are cities in the world where they need people to live and they even give a financial incentive to do so. From a Brazilian source:
“Have you ever had the dream of living in another country? Are you tired of the difficulties that Brazil has been going through in recent years, with the huge number of scandals in politics, exorbitant taxes and the growing violence that has taken Brazil by storm?
Maybe it's a lot easier than you think, as you can earn incentives to live in certain cities! All it takes is good English and the courage to drop everything to try life elsewhere. See the list of places that pay you to live there.”
From an English source: Tristan da Cunha is a small island with just one village and limited resources. Immigration is necessarily tightly controlled, and there are few expatriate job opportunities.
Therefore, immigration to Tristan is not possible unless you already have a family connection with the island. Even then, there are certain restrictions on residency. It is not possible to buy real estate or property on the islands.
There are only a few expatriate jobs on Tristan. These are fixed term contracts, typically for two years. They are all professional posts, such as doctors and education advisors, or scientific and technical specialists, such as agricultural advisors and conservationists.
Vacancies arise two or three times per year. Any vacancies are advertised in relevant professional journals and websites, and on the Tristan website's Jobs Page.
If you are interested then cross your fingers and dream because the chances are very limited and quite frankly, who would like to be stuck on a remote island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
