    New Zealand and they pay techies to move there, set you up with cash and work. Google it.

    Get Rosetta Stone and improve your English skills or any other language you may need. Be proactive, my friend.

    No man Europe is like a castle with very high walls anyway I bought expensive online course for French to go to Québec, the course was excellent but I found that I will take like 3 years to be able to speak French fluently :)

    Yes you are probably true.
    Being in Europe, it seems quite easy for some foreigner to come to France (at least to study). Once you are in France, it's quite easy to stay to work and have the nationality if you want.
    Outside that, i can't really help you i'm sorry. I hope you will find your way :)

    To sort of objectively answer your question, it wil ultimately boil down to two main things:

    1. How much is your net worth in assets (cash, properties etc)?
    2. What is your professional skill set? (Are you a famous person, a skilled surgeon, am author of a best-seller..etc)

    In other words, it can be simplified in a SINGLE SENTENCE as such:
    WHY should we take you in? WHAT will you be able to offer for the betterment of the country that you are seeking to emigrate to?

    If you can answer the questions (1) and (2) with answers that a particular country wants to hear, you will find that there are many options open to you.

    Coming to what YOU would want:

    WHAT new thing are you expecting in a country that you want to emigrate to, that you ALREADY do not have in your native country?

    Yes, the above is a third and vital question that you need to ask yourself. Are you looking to go away from a war zone? Better employment opportunities for you skill set? What exactly are you seeking? Again this depends on your professional skill set. If you are a sofwtare developer, the options would be different compared to some other job..

    Based on the above, I can give you good answers.

    If you can show that you have a lot of money, there are certain countries (good ones) that are willing to grant you perm residence/citizenship rightaway. But you need to answer those 3 questions first!

    @TechLord

    The answer to your questions is really pretty obvious however if I am rich I know that I can literally jump to any country I want so I am looking for jobs, better future , etc... My skills are in software development.

    Hmm.. Not really... Unless you have millions :D

    Sorry if this sounds blunt but I am just being objective:

    If your skills are average then its better to try to move where the demand is huge (like the Silicon Valley in the US, where I presently have my company). Nearly anyone with average skills here can get a job in software dev.
    The pay of course depends on the skill level. Some may disagree, but from what I've seen in the past few years here, by and large, for a majority of people, ultimately, their average pay finally boils down to their skill level.
    I say "ultimately" and also say "finally" because, when you move here initially, you may have to settle for a very low pay (as you need to search for a job that exactly fits your skill set)

    Then generally after a few months, you would be able to change jobs and thus hopefully have a better pay.

    Personally, I've seen that the interview process in the major companies has changed quite a bit so that, if you do have the skills, nearly all of the time, you get a pay commensurate with it.

    Naturally, you'd not be able to become a citizen rightaway! You need to come here and the slowly progress up the ladder (with a Green Card first and then finally citizenship). I've seen many dfo this here successfully.

    If your skills are excellent, then it's another story altogether. You'd be able to command a very good salary right at the start, provided that you do not make any foolish mistakes, especially in the choice of the companies that you apply for and also during the interview itself!

    Of course, depending on your country of origin, getting a VISA to work could be a major hurdle...

    Sorry if the answer again sounded obvious, but the point (sad I know) is that New Zealand, Singapore, Australia and a few more countries had made it very tough to emigrate there recently :(

    If you have very good skills Singapore is a good destination to aim for in Asia. Getting a Green Card there is not very tough and within 5 years you can become a citizen after that (mor eor less automatically). I've seen several software engineers (many from India) do that, if they could not get themselves in to the US!

    EDIT:
    I am assuming that you want to move to a country where English is widely spoken and understood and also has political stability, respects Human Rights and so on...
    If not so, there are many. many countries that offer citizenship much more easily. Am sure you do not want to move there ;)

    It used to work in the past, but apparently doesn't work anymore :(
    If you do know anyone for who it worked in the recent past, pls let us know as I have a lot of friends who want to migrate to Canada. :D
    These days, for most of them $200,000 is not really an issue.

    It seems that the Canadian authorities want to make SURE that you would actually open a proper business there etc. If not so, then they would not allow you in :(

    Well, you do need to find a company which does sponsor you first.. Not too tough if you are willing to settle for a lower pay. Once you are in , then your opportunities will be a lot more and you can change companies after a year or so to something else that pays you what you actually deserve.

    I know. One of the reasons is due to the new restrictions imposed by the president.

    You need to focus on bigger companies. The smaller ones simply do not have the resources to sponsor, with the new rules in effect

    @TechLord

    Really ??!! I was depending on small to medium companies because big companies require much more skills than I have. Where I can read more about these restrictions ?
