When I was in Rarotonga, I met a US citizen who was working in Fiji
, doing software
for the government
. He found that the government
could be difficult to deal with. For example, they would not give him back his passport, and would only allow him to leave the country to specific other locations that did not have a US embassy, so he could not get a new passport. They put several mechanisms in place to prevent him from leaving Fiji
The list of requirements to deposit $100K or $40K per year give a little hint of that. Nothing ominous about such requirements, but it does expose the immigrant to the potential for abuse at the hands of relatively low paid government agents.
