Olamidotun Votu-Obada: What to Do When Choosing the Best Country for Relocation

If you’re considering moving to another country, you may struggle to decide on which country to move to. Relocating abroad can be full of challenges, but there are things you can manage. I was once in your shoes and I believe I have some tips to get you through this phase. There are certain things that need to be done and considered that will help you make an informed decision. 

Research is key

Before taking any steps, it’s important to gather basic information about the country and region you have in mind. I recommend keeping a personal journal to document all your research. This will help you filter the best options based on the information you’ve gathered.

Job opportunities

Once you’ve decided on a country or region to migrate to, the next important question to consider is whether there are job opportunities available in your field of expertise. For example, in Canada, there is a high demand for nurses in regions such as Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan. If nursing is your profession, Canada could be a great option for you. Similarly, if you work in IT, countries such as Ireland, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Luxembourg, and Switzerland offer a range of job opportunities in your field. It’s important to research and consider these factors before deciding on a destination for your migration.


Age is another factor to consider when thinking of migrating to another country. Some countries are more open to receiving young immigrants than others as they see it as a good way to improve the status quo of their economy. So, if you are a young person looking to move to another country, it’s best to start now and make the best of your age and profession to fulfil your migration dreams. 

Pick a climate

If you have investigated visa options for countries you are thinking about moving to and have a few possibilities, then now you can do some of the fun stuff. Are you a  beach bum or a snow bunny? Do you like a tropical country or a cold one? Choosing where you want to live abroad can mean making a complete change or sticking to what you know and like. However, climate shouldn’t be the deciding factor because you can make the most of any location.

What’s nearby?

When deciding which country to migrate to, proximity can play a role. For instance, if you reside in Nigeria, it may be more convenient to consider neighbouring countries like South Africa, Ethiopia, and Tunisia. These countries offer ample opportunities for education and employment, which could potentially facilitate father migration. If you are based in Australia, then it’s big enough to keep you occupied for a while, and New Zealand is just a hop across the ditch.

Make your own choices

Some people choose countries to migrate to because ‘they were told’ that the country is good and it will work for them without doing due research. They forget that if something works for someone else, it doesn’t mean it will work for them. Don’t follow your friend. Before making a decision to migrate to any country, it is important to consider your options carefully. Ensure that the country you choose is the right fit for you, and seek advice from licensed visa and travel consultants about the opportunities available to you. They can provide valuable insights and help you determine the best migration options for your situation.

Research is still the key to unlocking the best option for you. It is your responsibility to gather all necessary information before concluding which is best for you.  Statistics have it that there were 280 million immigrants all over the world in 2022. This means there are tons of migration opportunities everywhere. You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending
