This is something that I'm curious about. Its not something I plan to attempt myself but still.... I ponder.
I've been reading about Svalbard lately. Apparently, according to the law that governs Svalbard, though it is officially part of Norway, people from any of the signatories of the Svalbard treaty are free to move there.
A few friends of mine went on holiday there several years ago to see the northern lights, so I know it is at least a somewhat accessible place despite its northern location.
So I'm wondering...has there ever been an incident of a person deciding they want to migrate there and just showing up and starting to look for a job?
In particular it seems to me that it could be something tempting for someone from one of the poor treaty signatories- a not very bright person who doesn't realise what the climate is like most likely.
