Greetings from Phuket, the pearl of Andaman sea.

Yes, you're welcome to Phuket, Thailand. I do the business of shipping&moving here for more than 15 years, I can say many Australian people on this island.

I also am interested in moving my family from Australia to Phuket. Are there any Aussies that provide helpful information on how to best approach this? What is the situation with visas and work permits and also property investment?

Thailand is not the best place for property investment. Prices don't move much and its illegal for a foreigner to hold land. You can buy a condo, but not the land it sits on. Load here and other places on work permits and visas, have a search.

Thanks for your response! So you CAN buy a condo? Does this mean you own it outright forever? I understand the situation with land, the foreigners aren't allowed to purchase the land.

It's complicated - there's both leasehold and freehold. This site explains the Condominium Act pretty well.

Have you been to Thailand before? You'd better be sure you can put up with a lot of hassle - The Thais, especially immigration, are famous for giving expats a hard time.

There is a very interesting article on the Expat Experience - under Thailand on realtorplus.co.uk - check it out - it was actually written by an expat and is an eye opener for anyone thinking about living in Thailand.

I find that article a bit bland - and it contains errors.

Few resale properties? Hardly! Retirement age 55? It's 50. Etc.

I actually tried to do that myself a few years back . Of course the bank clerk in Thailand hadn't a clue what I was on about...
