Depending on where you currently live, the idea of living in a different country can be fascinating. Especially if you live in a country with worsening political and economic climates or just want a change of scenery. Moving to a different country also offers new and appealing challenges that can result in major personal growth and offer new and important life lessons.
However, migrating to another country is not so easy. The governments of most countries demand you pay for a fee for the privilege and most countries have very strict policies regarding admittance. Besides, there are other costs involved including costs of travel, transporting your belongings and getting a new home in which to live.
This should not deter you from your dreams though. Some countries make the immigration process much easier than the average. Following are ten such places. If you’re unable to achieve citizenship, several of these countries will let you stay there indefinitely. They are:
Austria’s cost of living is quite high, putting it on the high side of the financial scale but if you can afford it, it is a great place to be. The country boasts of beautiful scenery from the snow-capped Alps to sparkling blue ice caves to wild valleys and more. It people live a perpetual resort lifestyle and have a reputation for being very content. No wonder it is a gateway for most of Europe’s capital cities.
There are 10 different types of resident permits offered by Austria. There should be at least one you can qualify for but there’s a catch – as an immigrant, you don’t apply from temporary gigs in Austria. You must apply from your home country except for residents of the European Union and the United States who qualify for a D-visa. This visa permits the holder 6 months to stay in Austria before applying for a resident permit. This makes both job and spouse hunting tricky for those outside of these countries or who are not eligible for the D-visa.
