    Relocating to a new country can be a fantastic and exciting experience. However, making the big decision is not easy, and it necessitates a lot of consideration, thinking, and a solid plan of action.
    There are a number of things that influence your decision. When considering to relocate, there are a few factors to consider: safety, economics, and acceptability. It also entails determining whether the country provides a safe path to a better life.
    Various countries around the world have immigration laws which allow foreign citizens to apply for residency or citizenship.

    Here are five Favorable countries for Immigrants who wish to relocate.

    Canada: The country is one of the world’s most welcoming countries to immigrants. The United Nations has ranked it as one of the best locations to live in the world. The government has a progressive immigration policy and has in the past provided safe passage to foreigners. It is more difficult to enter as a worker, unless you have a formal job offer from an employer in Canada, but it is considerably easier to immigrate if you are a qualified professional. By 2022, Canada intends to expand its immigrant admissions targets to one million people. Because the Canadian population has not increased at the desired rate to promote the presence of qualified employees to replace those who are retired, Canada is suffering a skilled shortage of workers. As a result, the country is looking for replacements among foreign labor. Canada also has some of the world’s greatest universities. The country boasts a low rate of crime and violence, as well as a high economic condition.

    Germany: Those who do not work in Germany are eligible for assistance. Unemployment benefits are available to everyone who is unemployed: 60 percent of last net income for those without children and 67 percent for those who do. Economic refugees frequently take advantage of the allowance system, as benefits are granted even to people who have never worked in Germany. All they have to do now is register as “unemployed.” Immigrants have the same rights as any other German citizen under the fundamental equality law.
    Family reunion, commercial investment, job opportunities, and study are some of the most commonly issued visas. Financial stability proof is essential in all circumstances. Germany is also notable for low to no tuition public universities that allows international students good education with little or no cost for tuition.

    Paraguay: This nation is not often considered for relocation by immigrants but for establishing a business, it is ideal. The government of Paraguay issues low taxes, a stable economy, and a low cost of living. Paraguay has a straightforward immigration policy. After three years as a permanent resident, a person can apply to become a citizen. Immigrants can obtain permanent residency in Paraguay by purchasing a 10-hectare agricultural plot or paying $4,500 in the Central Bank.

    New Zealand: New Zealand has been dealing with a skills deficit and is actively seeking skilled and knowledgeable professionals from all over the world. Job prospects are abundant and, in certain cases, pay is higher than in some parts of Europe.
    New Zealand’s quality of life is far superior to that of many Western European countries. The country is in the top ten countries in the World Human Development Index, which measures average lifespan, education, employment, and living conditions. Foreigners who desire to move to New Zealand often choose the Skilled Migrant/Business/Entrepreneur visa.

    Denmark: The nicest thing about relocating to Denmark is that the Positive List Scheme, which includes positions with a labor shortage in several fields such as engineering, academics, education, information technology, healthcare, and medicine, provides applicants with instant employment and resident permits. The basic residency and work visa is valid for four years, however it can be extended if you continue to work in the same position. Family members, such as spouses or partners, and children under the age of 18 who live with the applicant, are eligible for residence permits under both schemes. Similarly, the spouse is permitted to work throughout the same time frame.

    Before making up your mind to relocate, you must know what you wish to accomplish as this will help you plan better, and set your focus on the country you wish to relocate to.

          Those are good locations. You speak French?

          Belgium and Canada have French speakers, Luxemburg to some level.

          Any special reasons for those countries?

            My wife has a basic grasp of French.

            Reason for wanting to move there is because I believe their Education is really good and cost of living is pretty adequate.

            You’re – I know that for Canada and Belgium, but not familiar with Luxemburg.
            But if you have Belgium and Luxemburg, then perhaps you should channel your energy towards Europe rather than North America. I mean, there are more of what you want in Europe than in North America.

    I somehow agree with this list but also surprised that countries with the highest rates of migration, like the US and the UK are not on the list!

    @deborahetim so what would be the top 10? Will there be space for those two countries? I mean, what factors taking people there I asked myself?

      I excluded the UK and USA because they are quite popular and their immigration policy is not as easy as the ones in the post. Most people have not considered migrating to countries other than the UK and USA.

        Very true, I agree – many people think that the US and the UK are the best places to migrate to, which is in fact not true at all.
        But I think the UK has a fairly easy migration process….. may be quite expensive though, so not so migration-friendly!

    Good afternoon, DeborahPlease, I need your advice and clarification. You said something about Paraguay and 4,500 USD to central banking. Please, what is the purpose? Is that country good for the relocation of a family of 3? What is the procedure?My question is this: my wife, who’s a lecturer at a private university in Nigeria and doing her Ph.D. at the University of Ibadan, please is there any school you can recommend for me, either in Brazil or Chile, to further her education and to relocate together?

    This is quite a worthy information. I truly appreciate your time and dedication to providing such in-depth knowledge.

    My worry points towards the visa agents we have in Nigeria, the issue of trust and exorbitant exploitation and incessant milking is very appalling. An agent requesting for 2million naira to help process a 2months visa?….no be JuJu be that?

    My wife is currently studying for a Doctorate in health administration but I will rather she completes it outside the shores of Africa for increased opportunities. I seek to know if I can get useful information as to achieving that. Thanks

      From my personal experience, for someone who already has a Bachelor‘s degree or even any other qualifications and wants to move abroad, seeking a visa via an agent should be the last thing to do – YOU DON‘T need them; not only because of the exploitation and untrustworthiness, it’s simply not necessary.

      People need to have patience and endure the process of getting to where they want to be. Gambling with an important part of your life (and family’s ) is not worth it.

      Take the time to seek relevant information about where you want to go, visit the website if the country and note the requirements – then apply yourself.

      With regards to where your wife can study, it really depends on the location that you fancy – I for sure would always recommend either Germany or other EU countries.

          Good question, and I will answer it by asking, what are your motivations for moving abroad?
          What are you looking for on the long-term? Being able to answer this question from the start will help you narrow down which country to relocate to, and once you have a shortlist of maybe 5 countries, you can then check the requirements of each and then decide on which one is the first choice and the second choice.
          In your case, one of the reasons is the completion of your wife’s PhD abroad: This is a special one because she has already started the program. You’d have to find out which countries offer either the same or similar PhD program, and would it be possible to transfer the credit and complete her studies in the new location.

          Also, you may want to check with her what her plans after the Doctorate is – work within the academic sector, be a researcher, move to the industry or start her own business??
          Of course, it may not be easy to have it all worked out, but you’ll at least have a sense of which direction you want to go.
          How about you, the husband? How about the kids (if any)? What is the plan for them? You should think about a country that is family-friendly and that incorporates this in their work system….
          I hope this makes some senses to you.

            It makes sense, and I really appreciate it. However, I like your last statement about family-friendly countries. My wife wants to work in academia. I am very sure she will like that. Even though I like Germany and Poland, can you share with me a list of family-friendly countries?

            The social system in the EU generally promotes family-friendly organization/atmosphere/working conditions etc. I can’t say for sure which of the countries in the EU is the most family-friendly; you may have to research briefly on that, but I can tell you for sure that the German system supports to a very great extent raising families here.

            Germany is for sure a family friendly country, but the Nordic countries (Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Denmark) are usually top on the list. The Baltic countries too, especially Estonia. And these countries have quite migration-friendly policies.

    Hello Deborah, I will like to ask if it is possible for a family of two to relocate to New Zealand and also do they give permanent resident permit (if yes) how soon?. Thanks

      Of course, it is possible for a couple to migrate to New Zealand.
      Generally, migration to any country as a single, a couple or family is possible. You just need to know the relevant/legal ways of migrating to those countries.
      From this post, New Zealand (NZ) for example is seeking skilled workers; If one of you gets a decent job there, you are entitled to moving with your partner. Getting a permanent residence will come much later. The first step is to decide on which means to migrate there – via skilled work, studies, seek refugee (if applicable)……. and many more options that you can research on.

      Once this is settled, then you can begin to check the options available for moving as a couple. Permanent residence is still way down the lane.
