I want To leave the U.S for good which country in europe would be best to live in?

If I have to I will learn a different language i know some german, but I want to leave here because mainly the society is ridiculous i need to get the hell away p.s do not tell me how good america is cause i wont stay here no matter what so give me answers or leave thankyou

This really depends on your interests and personality a lot. All of the countries here can be goodexperiences – certainly I’ve enjoyed living in Italy for the last 12 years. However, I was also happy living in the US and still have a home there.

The simplest answer is that the best country is the one where you can find a job and get a visa that allows you to live there. It’s not easy to move internationally; the easiest ways to move are through a student visa or an elective residence visa, but you would need to prove you can support yourself without working. Getting a visa that allows you to live and work here is not easy to do at all. You can’t just pick up, move to another country and look for a job.

For example, it would be illegal for you to either live in or work in the countries in Europe (or elsewhere) without obtaining a visa that allows you to live and work here before you come. Right now, the economy is not good and there are not many jobs available. The best opportunity is probably in the healthcare field. EU citizens have the right to live and work freely within the EU, others cannot automatically live and work here.

My direct experience is with Italy where I’ve been living for the past 12 years. The site for visas here in Italy is: http://www.esteri.it/visti/index_eng.asp . The site has links to the application, the additional information you need to supply in order to get the visa and where to apply. It also includes education visas which are somewhat easier to get than work visas. You can find similar information for other countries on their consulate websites. There’s visa information for the UK here: http://ukinusa.fco.gov.uk/en/visiting-uk… or for Ireland here: http://www.consulateofirelandnewyork.org…

A work permit is separate – you cannot apply for that yourself. The company has to apply and they have to be able to demonstrate that there is not a viable EU candidate for the job. As a result, jobs for foreigners including Canadian or US citizens are pretty much restricted to people with special education, knowledge, or experience … and you would have to be able to speak the local language. Right now, as noted above, the best bet would probably be something in the healthcare field. When I moved here, it was through a transfer of the job I was already doing in the US to the Italian office. Even so, it took 8 months to put all the paperwork in place to apply for a visa.

It’s useful to check the expat sites for information about living and working in the places you might be interested in:

http://www.expatsinitaly.com/
http://www.escapeartist.com/
http://www.expatica.com/

You can find other sites by searching for "expat" and the name of your target country. You need to look carefully into the economics of the move – as a US expat, you would have to file income tax returns both in the US and in Italy if you moved here. You would need to check this for other countries.

What are the best countries in Europe to live in?

I haven’t been to every country in Europe but i’d say the UK and The Netherlands come quite high on the list for me.

I think in terms of quality of life your income has a lot to play no matter where you live. It seems that Scandinavia always scores high, in these countries everyone is seen as equal, education, healthcare, unemployment benefits are all provided by the state and people usually tend to have a good salary that makes up for the cost of living. Then a lot of Brits relocate each year to France and Spain so presumably it’s not too bad down there.

what is the best country in europe to live in now?

Living in Ireland at the moment and its pretty gloomy

Was wondering what were the countryside least hit by recession (or are they all mainly the same?)

Considering cost of living/jobs/weather all main things what are good euro countrys to live in?
Ps if I am Irish can I live and work in any eu country ?

I would have to say Denmark or Finland is the best place to live in Europe right now
Finland has work and so does Denmark, now if you were moving to Russia, then that would be a problem because Russia does not have that many jobs and they are hurting for money over there, same thing happening in Ukraine also.
France and Italy might be expensive to live in too. Norway is not too bad.

What is the best European country to live in?

I’m currently 16 years old and live in Chicago. I was born in Romania and have a strong desire to get back to Europe, but I don’t know where it would be best to go. I’m planning on working as a pharmacist after college. I would also be interested in studying abroad (any suggestions?) but in the end I want to live somewhere in Europe.

i live in italy and since i visited most of europe,in my experience i think UK and Spain are the best countries to live in,because of society,business,work,student’s funding,etc
anyway every country has something to offer,i recommend not to come in italy for the difficulties to find a job,but for Art and students studying Art, Italy is the best country.
it depends on your interests.
by the way it’s funny how many americans want to come in europe,and how many europeans want to come to the USA (including me) xD

Whats The Best Country In Europe For A Young Black Male To Live.? I Have Family In Portugal?

I’m Portuguese and black. But I look black. I have family in Portugal who I do not know since I really do not know my father and his side. I’m not fluent it the language either. All I know is that during the 1960’s part of his side. Came to America.

Other then that where are some good countries that I can live at. Where I will not endure huge amounts of racism. I’m 18 by the way. I always wanted to live in Europe. Also to see my family.

Thanks. What age is a good age to move there. Or should I move after I get my 4 year degree.

ummm, Poland is good, people are friendly and not racist.

try to make friends with everyone, about the skin, it doesnt matter, okay…

Good luck <3 and keep smile!

What is the best country in europe to receive student loan?

I am a british citizen and i am looking to do my university studies somewhere in europe, not sure on where to go,what is the best country in europe in terms of student loan? And could you also tell me if i need to be living there for a certain time in order to get a loan?

I see other europeans coming to the UK and getting loans without any problems, i guess i shouldnt have any problems by going to their countries and receiving loans. Any feedback is welcome, thanks.

European students coming here have to pass a very strict language test after which they are entitled to exactly what a British student would receive in the way of freebies. The same applies for British students applying to study in Europe.

I find it hard to believe that you could pass a language aptitude test to the required standard in every single EU language so I suggest you start by telling us which languages you are totally fluent in.

Best country in Europe to be foreign exchange student?

I’m filling out my application to be a foreign exchange student, and I’m torn between a few countries. Right now it’s either Germany, Sweden, Norway, or Denmark, but I’m not sure. What is the best country to be a foreign exchange student in? I’m very open-minded and looking to spend time with people who are also open-minded and are semi down to earth. I don’t want to live in a rural area, I prefer a more urban setting with the culture still around new thriving modern age uprooting into society. If you could help me out and give your opinion on the best place to live in Europe or your thoughts on different countries, please comment. :)

i live in malta and we get a lot of students here cause they seem to like it, mostly because of the night life

Best places to live in Europe?

I’m doing a assignment and I have to choose a country in europe and research it. Somewhere that has an easy language to learn, is very beautiful, peaceful, interesting and happy. And it might have to be famous enough to have enough research, but that is optional. Thanks! xoxoxoxoxo

You really shouldn’t have too much trouble doing the research no matter what country you choose. I’ve been living in Italy for the last eleven years and it’s wonderful here. In addition to the beautiful scenery of the lakes, mountains, sea & beaches and the hill towns, Italy has great art, architecture, music, and historical sites. There are lots of interesting cultural traditions most of which are celebrated in local festivals which you could write about. In addition, there’s the food. Every region and town has it’s specialties and some of those have an interesting story behind the origin – sometimes more than one story since some things go far back in time.

So you’re white mixed with Black?

Well, first off, you’re going to face racism everywhere. It’s Europe, the majority of the people here are obviously white, not to say we are all racist of course. One place is not anymore racist then another.

Unless you are a Portuguese citizen, it would be impossible to do it. You need to be highly educated. With a masters degree in a field that is highly in need. You can’t move there without a job offer, and it cost a lot of money for them to offer you a job to be a cashier. They won’t do it, especially if they can get any portuguese citizen to do it, Secondly even with a masters degree, that still does NOT guarantee you will be offered a job to move there. This is how it works. Portugal has to find a Portuguese person to do the job, if they don’t then they HAVE to (by law) look in the WHOLE European union (20 countries +), And then they will look for a person from the Americas, but in all honesty the chances of them NOT finding a European to do the job is unlikely. There will be someone to do the job. It is very hard to live in Europe if you are not European. You need a high level university education.

What are some of the best countries in Europe to live in?

I am still in high school, however I do not want to live in America for the rest of my life. I would prefer to leave after collage and maintaining a good job for awhile. Some countries that appeal to me are the U.K., Netherlands, Denmark, Ireland, and Norway. I know a good deal of Spanish (that doesn’t really help me in the countries I listed above) and I’m willing to learn a new language. Any suggestions, or pros and cons?

Norway has recently gotten top honors for the best quality of life. Oddly Spanish would be a benefit since a lot of Norwegians spend the winter on the Costa del Sol in Spain. Any of the western European countries you name would be good, but I would not omit Germany or France as possibilities. Since you are still in high school, you should consider spending a semester or year abroad in Europe and do some traveling. You will have a much better idea after you have spent some time elsewhere. Take Spanish, French or German if you can. Any one of them would help regardless of your ultimate decision.
