Hi everybody,

we want to move to goa in the next years. WE ve been a couple of times in india so i know that things can be quit comlicated.
Is there any change to buy property as a non indien? If there is so what do i need for it? I read about it that i need to ground a buisness in india then i receive a buisness visa and i can buy a proberty.
But the more i read about it the more i doupt it.
Maybe someone can help me out with some more information.
I am very thankfull for any advises and help.

Flo

Several thousand posts of more information in the Buying Property in India thread --- and I'm afraid you won't like most of it, nor will you like the reality of Indian immigration law.

Hello Flo and welcome to indiamike

Be very careful, a Lawyer may tell you everything will be 'no problem', but it will almost certainly be a very big problem, some of the 'Goa Property' threads on indiamike are very long, but you seriously need to read them in full, many people have been kicked out of the homes they bought without a penny in compensation, and I bet the 'no problem' lawyer was nowhere to be seen.

Please look at this thread, even if you are not in India.: Have you seen Jonathan Spollen?

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.

@floinwales: You can't MOVE to India either on a permanent or Semi permanent basis. Immigration rules don't allow that anymore. You can stay here on a tourist visa for at the most 180 days at a stretch and can't buy property/start a business.

There are plenty of threads here about all these issues as Nick and Steven have mentioned, read them in full and hopefully you will have enough info to understand what the situation is.

Do you mean renting a room in a guesthouse for staying or renting the whole guesthouse for running a business?

You can stay long term in Goa if you are owning and managing a proper hotel on a business visa. This has to be a proper business with all proper permits and you have to be paying taxes to the authorities. There are Germans running businesses in Goa and many of them have been staying in Goa for the last 10 years.

i mean too rent a guestouse for buisness and pay tax as everyone else. As i said best is to go there in sep next year and ckeck out the legal ways of running a buisness. I wil have an incoming from around 1000 Euro the month so we wont have to relie on the buisness in india but if we want to stay longer we need something to do accept of cillin. My plan was as well to do someting for charity and find something else in my live than planing trucks through europe.
My wifé is welsh and i thought we could connect to run a buisness with some help for poor peaople in indea as my new profession.
I am quite free of the pressure to earn money and we both want to get out of the rat race here in munich.
But i am thankfull for any advise.
What i guess i cant applie for a buisness visa in the beginning or?

Hi flo,

just some side notes regarding your plans:

if you want to start a charity in India talk to Rob from Children Walking Tall, you can find some of his posts in the Volunteer forum here on IM.

Don't expect an easy life, especially in Goa. Just read mailing lists/local Goan newspapers on the net and you'll understand more about the political situation there. This is necessary for running a business.

I can understand that you want to get "out of the rat race", but this is merely a decision of your lifestyle, not where you live in this world. The rat race in India is different, but it's there.

Dear Federica,

thx for you advise. We still have time to plan everything. I dont expect it easy to work our plans but if you dont trie to live your dreams then i think you re wrong on this planet. I am not blind and i know it will be very complicated. I went alone for one year around sout east asia. That was always my dream. During this time i met my wife on destiny and i can tell you it was destiny cause 5 times in 6 month she crossed my path in a circle of 4000 Miles without that we arranged it. So now is my dream to run a guest house in goa and help some indian children for the future.
We both have no children and i thing my dream is it to do something worthful with my time on this planet then run after money and success in a buisness.
It bores me to death. Money comes Money goes but a smile of child is far more worth than that.
So hopefully i will keep my luck and my dreams come through and if not i will find something else.
I will get in thouch with Rob and wish you the best for 2011
Sorry for my english but i trie my best
Tara and take care
Flo

Wow, until that post I thought you were a lady!

Good luck with what you are trying to do........but link up with Rob as soon as possible as he will steer you in the right direction, please.

In Goa, child rescue is just anther scam and you could get sucked in big time.
