India Tops List as Most Challenging Country for Expats to Relocate To, Finds Study (The Wire)

By Taniya Roy

New Delhi: India is the hardest countries to emigrate to as it tops the list of nations where obtaining an employment visa is difficult, finds a new study.

This is followed by Australia, which demands the highest visa-related fees at £1,570 (approximately Rs 1.65 lakh), and Finland, which also has stringent requirements. It offers the EU Blue Card, but has a high earnings threshold of €62,508 (approximately Rs 56 lakh) for applicants.

Experts at William Russell – an expat insurance provider – analysed 30 countries and factors such as expat population, visa data, required vaccines and language requirements to determine the hardest countries to emigrate to. They gave each factor a normalised score out of ten, before taking an average of these scores.

They found that India has a low expat population percentage of 0.4%, the visa demands significant fees, and at least three vaccinations are required to emigrate to the country.
