July 21, 2019 / By Jephtha Question:
I plan to leave the U.S. as soon as possible, and I've narrowed it down to these three. Only respond if you have lived in any of these areas, or if you have done your research.
EDIT: Tell me specifically why a country is better.
I understand that it is difficult to move to another country, all that I want to know is the living conditions. If you want to mention how easy it is to get into a country, feel free to do that, but I don't want to see people saying "America is better" or "Moving into another country is hard."

I live in Germany and it's very nice. The people are very kind and the weather is good. (Hottest temps are around 34 degrees Celsius, coldest around -8 degrees Celsius.)
I have EU citizenship, but work in an international company, where we speak English. But I would recommend learning German. While you may not need it in your job, you'll need it in daily life, even if you live in a city like Berlin.
A good idea is to get at least a Bachelor's degree in computer science or engineering, and apply for an IT or engineering job. That's what a lot of my colleagues have done.
Teaching English is a possible career path, but you will have much more success with an engineering degree than with an English degree.
Look into the EU Blue Card, which as far as I know requires a job as a doctor, engineer, IT specialist, or scientist and earnings above 38000 € per year. (Please research this yourself, since I'm not sure about these facts.)
Immigration isn't as impossible as it sounds. Where I live in Berlin, 25% of people don't have German citizenship. Just get a good degree (Master's if possible) and work experience, then apply for a work visa or EU Blue Card. You can also apply to study here, if you know German, have SAT and AP (check Anabin.de), and can prove you have 8000 € in the bank per year.

Originally Answered: Schengen visa refused for France, approved for Germany, can I travel to france from germany?
A valid Schengen visa gives you the right to travel to any country in the Schengen zone regardless of prior denials.
Note that when you applied for a German visa, you declared that your intent was visiting Germany, not France.
Spending your entire time in France could theoretically be considered a violation of your visa rules and could be a reason to deny you a subsequent visa.
However these rules are extremely hard to enforce (unless of course you admit to such a violation yourself when applying for the subsequent visa).
"Better" depends on what matters most to you. I lived in 6 European countries and visited 33 countries around the globe so far, and I would not want to live anywhere where the weather sucks, even if I got a guaranteed income of $1M annually and a chauffeur with a Rolls Royce. That kills England, which is not a country anyway, but part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, 'cause it rains there about 330 days per year. Best thing about the UK is the government-provided universal health care.
I like France, specifically the South, so the Cote d'Azur, specifically the region adjacent to Cannes, then going east all the way to Monaco, but if you don't mind a bit rain once in a while, France has some really beautiful regions where life is not only wonderful but quite affordable. In addition, France has the best health care system in the world.
Next on my list would be Northern Italy, the region around Lake Como. Could imagine being a neighbor or George Clooney. Germany is fiscally healthy, but their winters are a bit too much for me personally. If you'd like to move to an English speaking country, aim for Malta. Great weather year round, good living conditions, beautiful, and English is one of the two languages spoken there. Since it's also part of the EU, you can easily move there as a citizen of any EU country.
You didn't mention Switzerland, but it's quite ideal, as it's smack in the middle of Germany, Austria, France, and Italy, and they speak 3 languages there, depending on the Canton. If money is no object, I'd aim for Geneva.

Lol it's not as if you can just waltz into either of those three countries.
Did you hear what Merkel told the crying girl? "Germany can't help everyone."
An even REMOTELY eligible candidate will be a doctor, lawyer, or engineer (or similar in expertise), have a lot of money in the bank, no debt, no health issues, NO criminal record, and some fluency in the language spoken there.
France DOES have one provision... You join their foreign army, the Foreign Legion.
Only 1 in 8 are accepted. The ability to speak French is not required.
After 5 years of service you are granted residency... or if you are seriously injured in a combat situation.
I hear they train similar to Marines and IDF. You have to disassemble and reassemble a pistol in x amount of time, etc.

Stay in the USA. No matter what people say, there are more job opportunities there those countries. That could mean moving to a different state though. Also, it is very hard to get a visa to live in those countries.
If you were to move, it depends how much money you have and what languages you speak. I would pick London, England or Germany.

Where in each country? And what do you consider 'best'?
I assume also that you've taken into consideration the languages required (ie you can't work or study in France or Germany if you're not fluent in their language), and the visa requirements to even get into the country for anything more than a holiday.
