This is great news for people who wish to spend the majority of their time in the sun. Now when you tell your friends that you live here, it will be true since most of your time will be in paradise.
There will be issues to deal with, such as immigration. What happens to the tourist visa that lasts 6 months? No matter what, the news is good and tempting.
