Definitely Australia...my visa came in a month and I am out of here with my toddler baby and husband for GOOD in Dec. I was BLOWN AWAY when I visited OZ last yr, they do things so much better than we do in most matters of life. I also got into a top PhD program with full pay. I cannot wait to leave this dumb anti science anti rationality country with its juvenile politics and endless wars and enemies.

Don't even bother trying to emigrate here, unless you have a job that is in high demand. (then again, 200,000 Americans call the UK their home, so maybe it is not so hard)

I wish I could live in London. That would be a dream come true. Maybe in another life.

Still a good place to live, ask any Eastern European who works and/or have made their homes here.

this question has been popping into my head again recently, so I did a google search, and lo and behold, the 3rd hit was my old thread!

woot woot!

so, same question, but with a new twist.

I now have a gf and a kid. what first world countries are the most accommodating to an american? has the recent recession killed all this?

and as to the original post

we take in alot of people every year

DHS | Yearbook of Immigration Statistics: 2011

now, if we are doing close to a million a year for the past decade, you think there would be places a few hundred thousand of us could go to if we wanted...

I haven't read through all 17 pages, so at risk of being repetitive: You are asking the wrong question. Most employers don't care what country you come from. They only care if you have the skills, qualifications and experience to fill their vacancy. So the easiest country for you, crystalblue, is whatever country is short of your trade or profession. Naturally, your chances are not so good if you are not fluent in that country's language. In case it's not obvious to anyone reading this thread, I should point out that most countries will not allow you immigrate unless you have a definite job offer and work visa in hand.

Are those of us unfortunate enough not to be college educated straight up not welcome to live in other English-speaking countries?
