Best countries to emigrate to! From travelling to retiring, these are the countries it’s super easy to emigrate to in case you’re thinking of moving to a new country
#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.
