5 Easiest Countries to Get Permanent Residency

All of you that Naija is pursuing, come and read where you can run to.

I know you are part of the people that want to ‘gbe body’ from this country and reside in the abroad forever. So I have come to help you and give you a list of countries that offer affordable and convenient permanent residency schemes. When you’re moving to one of the countries below, the choice for obtaining permanent residency is made a lot easier without risking the implications of citizenship.

  1. BELGIUM: Citizens of any country in the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland will acquire the permanent residence status automatically. Citizens from other countries have to apply at their local municipality for permanent residence. You will have to stay for 5 years without leaving. You cannot leave the Belgian territory for six months at a time and one year accumulated in the five years before applying. Once you become a permanent resident of Belgium, you will have many privileges
  2. FRANCE: Like Belgium, France also grants permanent residency after living there for five years uninterrupted. Contrary to obtaining permanent residency in Belgium, you will not be allowed to vote when you become a permanent resident in France. Permanent residents in France do have access to other benefits, like health care, welfare and open employment access.
  3. PANAMA: This is a country known for easy retirement. As a foreigner, you can’t work in regulated occupations, like being an attorney or working in some medical occupations. Other than that, once your visa is approved, you can start working at the company where you got your job offer or start your own business while holding permanent residency in Panama.
  4. SINGAPORE: You can obtain permanent residency in several ways from Singapore, but the easiest way is by applying for permanent residency while working in Singapore on an Employment or Entrepreneur Pass. Once you have worked in Singapore for at least six months (and are able to prove this by showing six months of salary pay slips), you are eligible for the Professionals/Technical Personnel & Skilled Worker scheme. This scheme is the easiest way to obtain permanent residency in Singapore, which will allow you to change jobs and travel in and out of Singapore freely, along with some other financial benefits.
  5. BELIZE: Is in the North Eastern coast of Central America and is bordered on the northwest by Mexico. It has one of the shortest waiting time for applying for permanent residence. Prior to applying for permanent residency in Belize, you only have to have been legally residing in the country for one year. Within this year, you are allowed to leave the country for up to 14 days total and you must get a new tourist visa stamp every 30 days. You also have to prove financial stability, which is generally done by providing bank statements that show savings and regular income. After applying for permanent residency, you are allowed to travel out of Belize for more than 14 days a year. During this time, you are still required to get your passport stamped every 30 days.
