Countries with Easy Immigration Policies

Be warned that this list mentions countries that are very different from the USA or Canada.

With most developed countries reducing the number of immigrants they let in, emigration is becoming increasingly difficult. Let's face it: unless you have an advanced, technical skill, it will be very difficult for you to get a visa for a highly developed country. So what do you? Well, you could settle for a less-developed nation that can still meet your needs. So, this list goes off the beaten path a bit, bypassing the developed countries that are the most popular immigration destinations. and instead focuses on less developed countries with lax immigration policies.

Read on to find out what they are.

1. Uruguay

Yes, this is a small country in South America, with a small population.

2. Ecuador

An amazingly green and beautiful country right at the equator. This country also claims the Galapagos islands. To immigrate, all you need to be able to show is a guaranteed monthly income of USD $800 for yourself, and an extra USD $100 for each of your dependents. So, if you are retired and have a pension of USD $800 per month, you can easily settle here. If you're not retired, you can invest in a mutual fund or a fixed deposit that can generate the necessary amount.

3. Argentina

Argentina is a large country with a small population. The population density is just 15 people per square kilometer. It has a wide variety of climates, ranging from temperate in the north to almost polar in the south. To settle here, all you need to show is a guaranteed monthly income of USD $850.

4. Brazil

Brazil is a great country with a rich culture and a high human development index. To settle here, you have to be retired and have a monthly pension of USD $2000. You can take two dependents along with you. For every dependent you bring, you will need an extra USD $1000 per month.

5. Svalbard

Svalbard is a large collection of islands near Norway. Though officially a part of Norway, Svalbard boasts a multi-national population from countries as far-flung as India, the United States, Canada, Japan, and South Africa. However this is a very expensive place, and you need to prove that you'll be able to support yourself. A very cold and barren place, but beautiful and isolated.

      Nicely done, and so true, forget Europe unless you are a doctor or rocket scientist... You obviously did your homework. However, I believe Panama and the Dominican Republic probably belong on this list...?

      Yes Celine, Panama and the Dominican Republic certainly are good candidates, but I wanted to keep this list short, and hence had to choose the best of the lot.

      i'm originally from uruguay,all you need is an airplane ticket to immigrate to uruguay then after you're there if you want to stay you start the legal proceeding which is for the most part formal paperwork but unless you're a criminal i don't know of anybody turnrd away from my country made up of about 99% of immigrants from all over the world.

      Great Article I have never heard of Svalbard but Norway is a cold but very nice country

    • francisid 5 years ago

      Thanks for this article. Indeed, if you want to get out of your country and be embraced by another, forget the developed nations. They'll have your butts kicked out faster than you say aloha.these countries are indeed way better and i think your survival rate may be higher, if you have cash stashed away,that is.

      Interesting hub! I have never heard about Svalbard too.. Is Uruguay really good for living? I have never thought about it in that way.. What do you think about Thailand? From my impressions it is peaceful, open to foreigners, warm (!) and easy to settle country.. and it's quite clean in comparison to many Asian countries..

      Very interesting to know about new places like Svalbard. I have no idea about Svalbard but i will try to read about it. I think there are many places around the world that are very nice,safe,low tax,easy to immigrate and can also work or do business.

      Hehe! I like this statement.

    • Mark 4 years ago

      As per the recent development, people requiring Uruguay Visa to enter Uruguay are not permitted to seek residence in Uruguay. That effectively means people from Pakistan, China, India, Russia among others CANNOT immigrate to Uruguay.

    • Bryan 3 years ago

      You forgot to mention the USA. You don't need any income to come here, and you can easily get a job. Free medical benefits for people with "no money" are also a big plus.

      Why would someone migrate to Brazil? The crime rate is out of control.

      People in general have low level of education. The corruption in politics is high. I know because I live here.

      What a bunch of lies , Argentina and Uruguay are self-focused , there is one kind of people , if you are black , be ready to be called negro negrito . They want to stay among themselves . They have bad relations with Brazil . If you want to immigrate Brazil is the place . Easiness is not everywhere .

Anyways,can someone tell me of any country where I can move along with my mother. Canada and Australia are out of my list because I have already tried those but all in vain.

      People are so afraid and hesitant nowadays. A few hundred years back, people would enter in boats headed to unknown destinations, many of which would have to be built from scratch. If they made it, we can do any fucking thing today, frankly. Plane ticket, visa tourist, GO!!!!
