11 EASIEST Countries To Emigrate To!


Your candidate lost the election, you owe
gambling debts to the mafia, or you just need a new start, whatever the case, it’s time
to emigrate. Unfortunately, it’s never as easy as just
picking a place and moving. Some countries make it impossible for foreigners
to to gain permanent residency, others open their arms to candidates. Now, for your sake, we’re going to take
a look at the latter by breaking down the 11 Easiest Countries To Emigrate To. #11 Malta – Everyone loved the movie Call
Me By Your Name. Was it the directing? The acting? The narrative? No! People just love to look at the Italian countryside. Set any movie there and people will rave that
it’s a “breathtakingly beautiful film”. But Italian immigration is too complicated,
instead just move to the three islands settled in the Mediterranean below it, Malta! Malta has all the breathtaking beauty, the
sand dollar beaches, the houses built into caves, the quaint roads, and the history that
Italy has with half the fuss! If you are an EU national, this is the place
for you. All you need is a JOB OFFER. Easily visit with any valid passport, stake
out your beach front property, talk to a few people, get an offer, and you’re on your
way! If you are not a citizen of the EU, it gets
a little trickier, but well worth the effort. On top of the basics, you will also need to
submit references and a CV. Your employer will have to send a cover letter
explaining your professional duties and abilities, as well as apply for your employment license. Basically, like most countries, they want
to be sure you will be a plus in their skilled labor division. Then, visit, get your job offer, and enjoy
the faux Italian countryside. #10 Singapore – The city state below Malaysia
has one of the fastest growing economies in the world, and also a lenient permanent residence
program. In contrast to the clean silver skyscrapers,
Singapore is also home to unique bursts of colors. Historic gardens and marinas play largely
into the culture of the island. Here’s the good news, Singapore will most
likely give you a visit visa that is good for a year. If you can find a job and show you have been
working for 6 months in the country, you can apply for permanent residence. Here is what separates Singapore though – the
unemployment rate is 2%! It’s one of the lowest in the world. So if you have any skills or experience, finding
a job will be easier than most countries. You can also fast track the process by starting
and running a business in Singapore. They also have a Foreign Artistic Talent scheme
to help implement talent into the local scene. The cost of living is higher than most places
on the list, but so is the quality of life. Plus, it’s one of the greenest cities on
earth, so you’d be doing your part by relocating there. #9 Canada – Canada is known as one of the
most polite and welcoming countries in the world, it’s no wonder their immigration
policies reflect this. A massive country that spans across 6 time
zones, Canada is sure to have any situation you are looking for, whether you want to live
in a cutting edge city like Toronto, or out in the Saskatchewan prairie. Like most situations, if you’re “skilled”
or rich, you can get in quick because you are considered an asset and a plus to the
country. For the wealthy, simply invest $250-$850k
in an existing company, or start your own leading to job creation, and you’re in. If you don’t have that kind of coin, but
do have the skills to compete, use the express entry system. Once you fill out the application, about 3,000
worthy applicants are plucked and given citizenship. For the rest of us, there is the trade agreement
system. If you live in Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica,
Iceland, Israel, Jordan, Liechtenstein, Mexico, Norway, Panama, Peru, Switzerland, or the
USA, and work for a company that has a base in Canada, you can do an intra-company transfer
without a labour market opinion! Lastly, the old standby of a job offer and
a work permit goes by clean as can be in maple leaf land. #8 Mexico – Or maybe you want the weather
a little warmer, in which case Mexico is your go to American neighbor. Home to the best tacos, tequilas, and horn
sections in the world, Mexican culture is one of the liveliest on Earth. Even deeper, a paper was published by the
center of democracy that shows that Mexican elections were more independent, professional,
and non-partisan than American elections. Despite a growing economy, Mexico maintains
a low cost of living, while providing excellent healthcare. Add in beautiful beaches, and it’s no wonder
Mexico is a destination for expatriates. If you have family in the country, you can
take residence with very little paperwork, otherwise you will have to get a work visa. As long as you can prove you are working in
Mexico, you don’t have to deal with too much assessment. For retirees or freelancers, you just have
to prove you make at least $2,000 a month (sometimes higher) to gain residency. These are not the only options though, more
and more people are living in Mexico part time. This is because if you are visiting Mexico
for leisure or business, and that stay lasts less than 6 months, you do not require a visa
of any time. Many Americans and Canadians, and even Europeans
have started to split their time between their home country, and a life in Mexico with almost
no hassle involved. In addition to all these options, Mexico recently
passed laws to induct a “points” system, but this ratification has not gone into effect
yet. #7 Sweden – WOAH Sweden? Most people see Sweden as a Scandinavian paradise
of beautiful people living pristine lives, and they are correct. Another draw of Sweden is the continue to
exhibit and develop the most progressive politics in the world. Which is why one might be surprised to learn
it’s actually one of the easiest places to immigrate to in Europe. In fact if you are an EU citizen, you have
something called “right of residence”, which means you can live there and even open
a business without ever applying for a residence card. For those outside the EU, it isn’t much
more strenuous. As long as you can prove you are related to
someone, studying or working in the country, your application will be accepted without
strict assessment. Just know once you are inside you will have
to deal with the high cost of living and tax rate. #6 Japan – To be honest, Japan is not the
easiest place to immigrate to, but if you are looking for a first world asian location,
it is probably your best bet. In fact, Japan used to be infamous to being
closed off to foreigners. But the appeal has always been there for migrators. For one, it is one of the safest countries
in the world. Culturally, harmony is of the utmost importance,
and isn’t that what we all want, to live in harmony? Finally the technology and jobs available
are on the cutting edge of civilization. Now, to the benefit of the rest of the world,
Japan is aging, there now are more elderly people then children. Due to this development, Japan is opening
its doors to skilled individuals who can reinvigorate the workforce. For the most part, they are looking for highly
skilled workers, that is to say engineers, humanitarian specialists, international services,
etc. Here is your in though, teaching a language. If you can speak your own language in a native
tongue, especially english, Japan will fast track your work visa. Once you are inside you can work towards obtaining
a more permanent job and residency. #5 New Zealand – After seeing the green sweeping
mountainesque cinematography of The Lord of the Rings trilogy, so many people applied
to live in New Zealand that the shy island notoriously closed itself off to expats. 90 mile beaches, the world’s most incredible
landscapes, and a delightful offbeat culture, it would be hard to blame them for trying
to preserve it. A decade later, the climate has changed. The Auckland has started to accept many more
expats due to a skills shortage. The country is now seeking skilled individuals
to reinvigorate the work force and keep the place afloat. The New Zealand government has published a
list of both immediate and long term skill needs, if you satisfy any of these shortages,
they will fast track your residency. If you are unskilled you will have to go the
standard and more exclusive route of a basic work visa. If you are an Australian or United Kingdom
citizen, you can actually stay in New Zealand for six months without a visa. If your country has a waiver agreement, you
can stay 3 months, which is just about enough time to get some networking done. #4 Panama – Relocation to Panama is skyrocketing
through the 2000s. For the explorers out there, Panama offers
some of the most diverse geological and biological landscapes in the world. Many see this tropical paradise as an ideal
retirement destination. Simply put, it’s beautiful, it’s cheap,
and people speak English. Fortunately, there are 8 different ways to
obtain permanent visas. Foremost, Panama actually has a retiree visa
for those that have a minimum pension of $1,000 a month. This visa also gives you discounts to movie
theaters, restaurants, hotels, etc. Second easiest, if you are currently a resident
of one of the 48 nations that Panama considers “friendly”, you are securing a job or
opening a business away from permanent residency. One of the more interesting visas allows you
to invest a minimum of $80,000 in a reforestation project to obtain your visa, a great way to
charity your way into a new home. #3 Roatan – Roatan, one of the Caribbean Islands
above Honduras, is technically not a country, but don’t let that stop you from taking
permanent residence there. The laws for obtaining a visa are as lenient
as the lifestyle here. If you can prove that you bring in at least
$2,500 a month or $1,500 on a pension, you’re in! In order to get a work residency, you will
need to pass some assessment from the government and be sponsored by your current company,
which can’t be a hassle. However! The Roatan Marine Park has an amazing program
wherein they will give you residency as long as you train to be a dive master. The 40 mile island is populated with 35 different
dive shops that need experienced instructors. You could go from boring grey office job to
deep sea diving for money in the Caribbean in 3 months, it doesn’t get much better
immigration wise. #2 Ecuador – From 2014 to 2015 InterNations
named Ecuador the top expat destination, citing quality of life, cost of living, and personal
finances as features that distinguished it from the pack. Ecuadorian lifestyle is also considered to
be as active and healthy as any country on earth. Finally, it is home to a surprising amount
of microclimates, so there is something for everyone. The republic of the equator has a pretty standard
immigration policy, except that it is significantly more affordable to buy your way in. You are only required a monthly income of
$800! Something that almost all pensions and most
freelance jobs will cover. Some countries will run you 250k-5m dollars
in investment for a residency visa, at $25,000, the Ecuador investment program is a steal. Rounding out the options are entry for people
with technical experience, religious workers, journalists, or simply having a recognized
college degree and a wish to practice your profession in the country. #1 Bahrain – This archipelago of 33 islands
above Qatar is considered by some to be the original location for the Garden of Eden. It is no wonder InterNations named the lush
booming country the number one destination for expats in 2017. Bahrain began as a crucial high traffic port
city in the middle ages, and has quietly expanded ever since. Many consider Bahrain to be the friendliest,
most welcoming, progressive and diverse of the Arab countries. To get there permanently, you’re going to
need a work visa. This is a situation where visiting the country
on a standard passport and networking is necessary, but oh so worth it. At any time, it is Bahrain’s directive to
have at least half of the work force comprised of Bahraini citizens. Considering it’s spike in popularity, this
is one destination you might want to jump on now before the slots are gone.
