You may feel like packing up your bags and re-locate somewhere else, call another country home and never look back. If you are of the mind, a little research is called for before any final decisions are made. We did some work for you. Feel free to start by going through this list of places that welcome foreigners whole-heartedly.
The Canadian province of Saskatchewan has a Graduate Retention Program to attract and keep more college graduates to live there.
The payments are made as reimbursement of tuition fees that you paid during college. However, you have to file a Saskatchewan income tax return and must be a recent graduate.
"Saskatchewan's budget keeps taxes low and controls spending while keeping our election commitments and investing in people and infrastructure to keep Saskatchewan strong," promises the province's premier Brad Wall.
Denmark may not be very high (or at all) on your list of options, but if you are an entrepreneur, the country gives you access to the single market, a two-year working visa and a chance to settle in the country.
Denmark offers one of the most generous systems in the world and the move could be worth thousands of dollars to you.
New Zealand apparently has too many jobs and very few people willing to do them. So much so that the prime minister of New Zealand, John Key, says the country is forced to rely on overseas workers because of the poor work ethics of many of the locals.
I “go and ask the employers, and they will say some of these people won’t pass a drug test, some of these people won’t turn up for work, some of these people will claim they have health issues later on,” he said lamenting the locals.
According to Keys, the country needs to get overseas help — even for low-skilled jobs — because locals were either not able to work or willing to move to less desirable workplaces.
Ireland has launched a campaign to lure 3,000 technology professionals each year into its IT sector. According to Karl Flannery, CEO of Storm Technology and chair of the Tech/Life Ireland initiative, the tech industry in Ireland has been growing faster than anticipated.
“There is a gap between what’s coming out of the third-level system and what the industry needs,” he said.
Vietnam, Thailand & Korea
Look towards Asia and these three countries are always on a look out for people, particularly from Europe and the United States, to come and teach English and other courses.
Vietnam and Thailand are much cheaper to live in, but Korea pays better.
If you can weather freezing temperatures, Svalbard's the place for you.
Though technically part of Norway, Svalbard's 2,642 residents are largely self-governed and the country's Immigration Act doesn't apply there. So, should you decide to move, there won't be a need for a residence permit or visa. Just plenty of warm clothes and a plane ticket.
Ecuador tops several survey categories, thanks to its cheap cost of living and Ecuadorians' friendly behavior towards foreigners. The South American country's capital Quito and Cuenca have long been the major attraction, but the development in Guayaquil has triggered a new influx of non-Ecuadorians. Guayaquil was formerly known only for its financial significance, but the new intake of life from lands unknown has added a multicultural flavor as well.
