What countries have relaxed immigration laws?

Postby condan » Wed Aug 01, 2012 7:17 am

I been looking to move out of the US for sometime I put a lot of thought into Australia and contacted there embassy and they sent me to forms I would need to fill out and it seems fairly easy since I have skills that they deemed critical to there workforce but I been keeping my mind open to other countries such as Japan. Any other countries out there particularly Asian countries that have relaxed immigration laws?

Depends on your age, your money, and your skills.

Most of the countries you've mentioned are first world developed countries and it's usually not easy to get a work visa unless you are guaranteed to have a job by an employer on the other side.

It's pretty straightforward to go there as a visitor, but once you have a job then I think it's relatively easy to adjust your status which depends on the country.

Also, it depends on what you mean by "immigration" - are you intent on staying there, or are you simply concerned about working there long term? If you have skills in demand, then it shouldn't be a problem for you to obtain a long-term work-visa; but if you intend to stay there, then it's usually much harder. You have to satisfy their residential requirement before you can become a permanent resident, which can take anything up to 3-5 years. Once you are a permanent resident, then the way is open for you to apply for citizenship of that country.

Personally, if I were you, I think your best bet is to go for the Republic of Ireland, which still has relaxed immigration laws. This is on account of the fact it's probably one of the poorest countries in W. Europe and the European Union. They still have a large annual influx of immigrants from India and Nigeria. You have to have resided for 3 years before you can apply for an Irish passport. Once you have an Irish passport, then you are free to travel to any country in the EU: Britain, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Austria & Scandinavia etc. Some countries have more relaxed rules about welfare payment. Generally speaking, Britain will allow EU citizens from other countries to take advantage of it's national health service, which is universal healthcare that is completely free. Once you are settled in the UK with an Irish passport, you have the right to take advantage of it's social security system, which is the entitlement of ALL EU citizens.

Generally speaking, the UK has very stringent immigration rules, which can be easily circumvented as long as you have an EU passport. Any person with an EU passport can easily get into the UK, albeit through the back or side door!
