  • the Saudi Arabian peninsula, The United Arab Emirates is one of the richest countries in
  • the world and one of the most expensive countries to live in.
  • However, if you can afford it you can enjoy living in what has become essentially one
  • of the world's largest vacation resorts full of pristine beaches, exotic wildlife and a
  • vibrant nightlife scene.
  • Not only that but because the UAE is one of the fastest growing countries in the world
  • in terms of population, it full of job opportunities.

  • incentives to people willing to move there and even take care of new employees residence
  • and work visas.

  • job in the United States.
  • Number 12.
  • "United Kingdom" You could live on island steeped in history
  • if you choose to move abroad to the United Kingdom.
  • From the towering clock tower big ben in England to the rolling hills of Scotland, the UK is
  • an enticing option for Americans seeking a modern lifestyle similar to what they are
  • accustomed to in the United States.
  • While the language barrier isn't too much of a problem as long as you brush up on your
  • cockney slang moving to the United Kingdom is notoriously stiff on immigration.
  • The application process is purposefully complex and expensive with rules that constantly change.
  • In light of the the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union the ability to gain
  • a work visa has become a bit easier and even if you don't already have a job Americans
  • looking to England or Scotland have the benefit of a six-month buffer in which they can stay
  • without a visa.
  • There are also many things that make UK citizenship worth the complications as the country is
  • known for having one of the best healthcare systems in the world.

  • Thailand-- From breathtaking Jungles to Bangkok's infamous nightclub scene, Thailand could be
  • the perfect homebase for a person looking to spend their life exploring the Eastern
  • Hemisphere.

  • crime especially in its larger cities, it can be a great place for a young teacher to
  • live abroad if they can find the right place.
  • A person can live quite comfortably off an income of $15,000 or more and because English
  • teachers are a hot commodity the are one of the higher paid jobs in the country, easily
  • making much more than this salary.
  • Number 10.
  • Belize- Home to lush rainforests and dazzlingly serene beaches Belize is one of the hidden
  • treasure of Central America.
  • Though the country is fairly small it has a lot to offer and is one of the most modernized
  • countries in the region.
  • If you choose to live here you can explore the jungle, go mountain climbing and surfing
  • on a regular basis.
  • Belize is very welcoming to outsiders and has the immigration laws to back up their
  • hospitality.
  • While younger people can become permanent residents if they consistently renew their
  • tourist visa on time for a year, people over 45 have the unique benefit of Belize's Qualified
  • Retired Persons program.
  • This grants citizenship to anyone meeting this age requirement that can prove they have
  • enough money to retire.
  • In some of more expensive cities this can be around $35,000 a year while throughout
  • most of the country you can retire and sustain a fun lifestyle for just over $16,000 annually.
  • Unlike many of the tropical countries on this list Belize rises to the top as English is
  • the country's official language.
  • Number 9.
  • Mexico- If you are looking for a country that has a range of living options from the hustle
  • and bustle of big cities to decadent resort lifestyle to the laid back pleasures of a
  • small desert town Mexico has it all.
  • For Americans, Mexico is an incredibly easy place to immigrate to as the country offers
  • open ended permanent visas, has a very low cost of living and is right on the United
  • States southern border.
  • However there are a few drawbacks if you choose to live in a city, be aware that Mexico is
  • notorious for its pollution and overcrowding.
  • If you want to live in a resort town like those in the Yucatan the cost of living increases
  • dramatically.
  • And if you want the cheap life in a small desert town you should make sure that it's
  • not a hotbed for cartel activity.
  • Number 8.
  • Malta--Malta might be the perfect relocation option for those who have a love of Ancient
  • history, seabound activities or want the Italian or Greek experience but at a much more affordable
  • price.
  • Not only is Malta one of the cheapest places to live on the Mediterranean Sea but they
  • welcome English speakers with open arms.
  • This is because of Malta's huge tourist industry which is always in need of English speaking
  • tour guides, teachers and doctors.
  • Malta boasts one of the easiest permanent visas to obtain and it is especially easy
  • to be approved for if you are American or a citizen of the European Union.
  • Number 7.
  • "Germany" For Americans that don't want to give up their
  • modern lifestyle with all the benefits of technology yet still want to live in a place
  • full of history that has culture that values everyday revelry and the simple pleasures
  • Germany could be the country for you.
  • Although most countries in the European Union are incredibly difficult to gain permanent
  • citizenship in Germany has become a haven for American artists.
  • Due to Germany's Artist Visa program anyone who can prove that they can sustain themselves
  • on the profits from their creative works alone is entitled to an extended stay.
  • Germany is also one of the countries that practices citizenship by descent.
  • This means that if you parents were born in Germany and upon your birth in the U.S. they
  • registered you as a German citizen by descent that you are in fact a citizen.
  • This rule works up to two generations as long as each generation registered the next within
  • one year of their birth.
  • Germany is also one of the cheapest countries to live in as far as the European Union is
  • concerned, with a person being able to live comfortably on the equivalent of $15,000 a
  • year.
  • Number 6.
  • "Ecuador" If you are sick of cold North American winters
  • or just having to be prepared for constantly changing weather, Ecuador might be a place
  • you should consider relocating to.
  • Because of its location right on the Equator, in Ecuador it is pretty much summertime all
  • the time.
  • In fact, the country is commonly referred to be the nickname "Land of Eternal Spring".
  • Ecuador is one of the top places to move for Americans who are looking to save money.
  • It is one of the few countries that has modern amenities and a culture that is friendly to
  • Americans where a person can live on less than $1,000 a month..
  • It is also one of the easiest countries to obtain residency in for the average Joe as
  • all that is required occupation and financial-wise is that you can prove you have a job or some
  • sort of income that brings in at least $800 a month.
  • However, some of the drawbacks of Ecuadorian life can be shocking to Americans.
  • The cities in Ecuador are heavily populated and no as clean as American cities when it
  • comes to sanitation.
  • The country is also a victim of frequent thunderstorms which can knock out power for days on end.
  • But as far as South American countries go it is actually one of the safer countries
  • in regards to crime.
  • Number 5.
  • "Panama" Because of the Panama Canal being one of America's
  • biggest foreign works projects, American culture has made a lasting impression on this small
  • Central American country.
  • Because of this American expatriates have made up significant minority of the country's
  • population since the beginning of the 20th century and American visitors have become
  • welcomed with open arms into Panamanian society.
  • Just like Ecuador, Panama's location near the equator gives it the country an endless
  • Summer which combined with its beautiful beaches and great fishing destinations, makes it a
  • perfect place to retire Panama's capital city is only around 6 hours by plane from both
  • Los Angeles and New York City making it fairly easy to hop back and forth.

  • to essentially live there permanently so long as every three months the leave the country
  • for three days.
  • Number 4.
  • "New Zealand" With striking features like beautiful meadows
  • and mountains that scrape the clouds, New Zealand is the perfect destination for nature
  • lovers looking to get back to a simpler life.
  • New Zealand makes it fairly easy for young people to decide whether living there is the
  • right choice for them.
  • They provide year-long Working Holiday Visas to those under the age of 30.
  • For people older than that who want to settle down in the Land of the Long White Cloud fear
  • not because New Zealand is in dire need of anyone with agricultural expertise especially
  • those who raise livestock, offering fast tracks to citizenship for those with these skills.
  • However, Americans moving to New Zealand should know that the cost of living is around 30
  • percent higher than that of the United States.
  • Number 3.
  • "Canada" America's frozen neighbor to the north is
  • full of forests, sparkling cities and friendly citizens.
  • Canada is one of the easiest countries for Americans to move to because of its proximity,
  • similar culture and comparable cost of living.
  • Canada also has one of the world's most advanced healthcare systems and is one of the cleanest
  • countries in the world.
  • But these benefits come at a cost as gaining citizenship is not particularly easy.
  • Unless you qualify for the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement's special work visa , which
  • requires that you already have a job in the country or have a job offer, it can take years
  • to go through Canada's citizenship rigamarole, even if you married a Canadian or are a worker
  • with skills that are in high demand.
  • Number 2.
  • "Costa Rica" As one of the most naturally beautiful places
  • in the world has loads to offer for Americans that are looking for a change of scenery or

  • A person can live a comfortable and stress free life here on a yearly salary around $25,000.

  • destination for Americans looking for change.
  • Whether you seek the natural wonder of Australia's outback, love surfing and snorkeling or want

  • countries that is most similar to the United States in terms of size and endless adventure.
  • Just like New Zealand one-year working visas are available and are especially easily to
  • obtain if you have mastered a trade like electrical engineering or can repair machinery.
  • Australia is also very similar to the U.S. when it comes to the cost of living as living
