We've always felt the overwhelming need to escape;that semi-primary needs of leaving our home country and all its chaos and never looking back and devoting ourselves to relaxing on distant beaches or becoming a Kung Fu Master. It's a tough call and we've all experienced the corresponding sensation that the painful knowledge that our aspirations are but pretty fantasies and that the cruel reality would pull us down on us. Permanently moving abroad is perhaps not the easiest thing in the world. It's also not as daunting as it seems at first, in some countries it's as easy to gain citizenship as chewing a piece of cake. .Just until we kick off. I'd like to say here that nobody's supposed to read this is filthy rich. So I omitted countries that allow you to buy citizenship for exorbitant sums, but if you're curious, the cheapest of all is the Seychelles of just twelve thousand five hundred dollars.

01. Svalbard in Norway.

Am telling you that Svalbard Norway is the easiest country on Earth to move to .I know you are probably wondering ! :Is this the same Norway that requires those who want permanent residency not even citizenship to study Norwegian for 250 hours and complete 50 hours of social studies ! Well actually Svalbard with a population of 2640 Duke is indeed part of Norway. But in the same way that Puerto Rico is part of the US or Greenland is a part of Denmark. A whole lot of important things have been devolved to the Svalbard administration from gun control to environmental issues to emergency services and to the issuing of marriage certificates. One thing that has been devolved is immigration and style that works on a very different system to that of Norway. There is no Visa regime on Svalbard at all. Literally anyone can move. There and settle down without the need for a permit. The only thing you need to prove is that you have sufficient funds to support yourself after moving there. This is important because Svalbard is cold. It's closer to the North Pole than it is to Mainland Norway itself a very cold country and fathered is both freezing and utterly remote. It's over a thousand miles to the mainland and winters take place in permanent Darkness further hungry polar bears really do prowl the streets. To cut down on Polar our attacks unemployment and homelessness are literally illegal and retirees are deported if they're considered a drain on society - but hey ; at least it's not your home country.

02. Mexico

Nothing could be easier than getting permanent leave to remain in Mexico. Seriously; just rock up to the airport or border and asked to buy an FMN Visa .Provided you don't intend to do any work ; the FMN Visa allows you to remain in Mexico for six months at that point Then - you can renew it for another six months then again and again and so on until you finally die. So now you might be wondering or how much does this Visa cost? Well, the princely sum of $21 of that's 42 dollars a year to kick back in a city of pristine beaches world-class cities-gorgeous Colonial towns and Mountain scenery like something out of a dream sure. You're probably going to need an income to go along with that ; fear not there are roughly a bazillion Mexican temporary residency visas you can cheat lie upgrade to including some design for artists sports players scientists and retirees. All of this leaves just one thing to discuss and that would be drugs. Yes, Mexico is in quite a grim place at the moment with the drug war having killed tens of thousands in the last decade .Whether you think the risk is worth it is up to you. Not everywhere is affected in some towns are essentially Drug violence free - just maybe make sure you don't get involved in the drug trade while you're there.


03. Panama

Panama is technically an independent part of Central America, but in reality looking and feeling like a part of Florida that broke off and floated South .Panama is moving abroad for those who don't want the hassle and inconvenience that moving abroad usually entails. It's safe ,its well developed and lots of people speak English and it also uses the US dollar. Practically anyone can move there with effectively zero effort .Most Americans that had to Panama do so on the retiree Visa - which gives holders massive discounts on a ton of stuff. It also only requires a monthly income of $1000, but the residence he needs of the younger workers is almost equally good. Basically, all you got to do is deposit $5,000 in a Panamanian bank - then if you come from one of the 47 friendly countries you can get the friendly nation visa . All you have to do is find a job or open a business in panama and boom – you’ve got the residency .Just be aware that most people who get this visa are using it for massive tax dodge.


04. Nicaragua

Nicaragua is gorgeous. We are absolutely serious here.Just check out the picture we're showing in this section. It kind of looks likesomeone got to hold and leftover bits of paradise that God had lying around and tossed them all together in a big Celestial mole. Provided you can ignore thepolitics then Nicaragua is the place youhave always wanted to go home to. So now we've sold you on the whole idea.We've got some awesome news for you- Nicaragua runs a retirement program justlike Ecuador and just like Ecuador; they take their own entry requirements witha pinch of salt provided. You can prove an income of just six hundred dollars amonth and you neither have to be old nor technically retired. While mostcountries don't let those on retirement visas work. Nicaragua's governments define works. So loosely that you kind of wonder why they bother doing it atall. If you open a restaurant, a Smallhotel- they don't define it as work. If you get an online income from a non-Nicaragua and Company - they also don't define as work, so yes, theirdefinitions are very - very loose.


05. Belize

An English speaking nation in Central America with alow cost of living and the sort of beaches you would expect to see DavidHasselhoff running down in slow motion. Well, yes, this is an actual place thatdoes exist and its name is; Belize wedged awkwardly between Mexico andGuatemala. This pint-sized slice of paradise is barely larger than Wales and itcomes with a population smaller than Bakersfield, California. So what's thetrick to setting up shop in this land of palm trees and Crystal Waters. Well,that's the best part. You can apply for permanent residency in Belize afteronly a year there to stay there for a year. All you have to do is arrive on a30-day tourist visa and keep renewing it every 30 days; when you hit the 50week Mark pays $1000 and after jumping through some bureaucratic hoops youshould be in. Just be careful of the requirement that some departments havethat you can leave the country for two weeks every six months, doing so willreset your year-long countdown


06. Canada

Having a livelihood the younger sibling of America's hard-working grown-up. Canada always takes a country liberal stance to the USA, which includes immigration; while America is currently experimenting with making immigration as unattractive as possible. Canada is casting its arms open wide to the surrounding World. Luckily, that includes you provided - You can prove your worth having. Canada's immigration rules run the gamut from excessively liberal to utterly draconian depending entirely on how skilled you are. For those with the skills or education level, but Canada needs - there's an Express entry program that’s so swift, it probably amounts to kidnapping. All you do is fill out an online form which gives you points based on education work and if you speak French, then there's also bonus points. For example, if you studied in Canada or have Canadian relatives. All you got to do next is pony up 500 Canadian dollars, which is $390 in American and you're in; but what if you're an uneducated unwashed slob. Well, there may still hope it gives Canada has one of the highest proportions of foreign-born citizens in the OECD. So why wouldn't they take you to!


07. Paraguay

Nothing could be simpler than getting residency in I - probably thanks to its terminal obscurity the government seems desperate to get as many people into the landlocked South American Nation as possible. As a result –t here's only one hard and fast requirement. You need to deposit money in a Paraguayan bank. A small amount won't do but you don't have to go big around 35 times the monthly wage is the accepted some which is between 4500 and 5000 500 US Dollars. Once you've done that Paraguay is your oyster; of course, whether the oyster contains the Pearl or just a lump of grips depends heavily on what you're looking for in your new home. Paraguay is so obscure that it has Neighbors who've never heard of it. Try telling the average American you're moving Paraguay and they'll think you've mispronounced Uruguay. Haha -who are we kidding? No, they’ll think you mispronouncing New Jersey and with the 6 million or so people who live there, that least half of them probably pretends there from Argentina. It's a poor undeveloped country surrounded by bigger way more developed countries but at least it's cheap.


08. Belgium

Belgium is one of Northern Europe's tiniest States slightly smaller than Maryland's just a whole lot of flat and a whole lot of roads. On the other hand, it does have some of the most attractive small towns on the continents not to mention some of the tastiest beer. It's also fairly easy to get long-term residency. All you have to do is get a job. Yes, we know this is probably easier said than done when your personal CV has professional procrastinator listed under the most recent role. But here's the thing many countries in Europe aren't cool at the moment with letting you take away jobs from locals in bed. Belgium not only will they let you apply for work as an outsider, but they'll also then offer you a residency permit after just two weeks of employment. This is not a permanent residency - permit understand but it's certainly a step in the right direction. All you got to do next is hold onto your job for long enough it varies by region and you'll be laughing all the way to the Belgian citizenship test. The only downside, of course, is that you actually need to be employable for this plan to work.


09. Austria

First things first. Austria is not an option for those who like their homes nice and cheap. Austria is a tiny country that operates like a hipster craft store, small fascinating to look at and so extensive that you will have to sell at least three organs before you can afford to be there. But Austria does have one thing that the hips disorder does not; according to the telegraph Austria offers over 10 different types of residents permits the best part absolutely none of them require any form of inward investment. The bad news is that you need to apply for your residency card abroad that is - Not in Austria. The good news.

Is that this doesn't apply to EU citizens or Americans. If you're an American, you can just get a DV visa giving you up to six months to leave to stay in the country- then go to Austria secure a job or wife and then apply for a proper residence Visa. Just remember to smile smugly at all. This struggling Canadians are Australians as you watch your way to the front of the immigration line.


10. Ecuador

Ecuador is a land of boiling volcanoes soaring mountainous Peaks and Old pastel-colored Colonial towns, Ecuador is exactly the sort of over Amanda sighs stereotype of Latin America, You've always secretly held in your head. It's got bitches Islands Mayan ruins and an adorably underperforming soccer team. It's also got a remarkably low cost of living, it uses u.s. Dollar as the main currency sounds pretty great. Well, get this little slice of South of the Border Paradise could be your new home for as little as eight hundred dollars per month. That is not the cost you have to pay -that's the income.

You have to prove you can move to Ecuador. Technically this is a requirement for Ecuador's pension Visa. However, Ecuador doesn't have certain minimum age requirements on pension of visas and to those claiming them don't need to even prove they have a pension; you just got to be able to show that $800 we'll be landing in your bank account every single month. This does kind of begs the question - why they call it a pension of Visa; but well, who are we to argue? This low requirement means that people with trust funds compensation payouts and royalties probably mean they are going to get a Visa very easily.
