  • Which country is best for Indian Expatriate?

    Want to learn from experiences of different members in various countries. Pros and Cons of Different Countries. may be conclude about which country may be best to earn and save money and also having a good life.

    The Options Can be
    1) USA
    2) UK
    3) Europe - Germany/France.
    4) Australia
    5) Japan
    6) Dubai
    7) Bahrain / Qatar
    8) Singapore
    9) Malaysia/Indonesia
    10) Hong Kong
    11) Korea
    12) Thailand
    13) South Africa
    14) China
    15) South America

    I understand that earning and saving can vary from person to person but we can talk general figures for 10 years experienced IT Engineer or MBA.

    (Not sure if having a Poll is good idea, the criteria for a good country can be high saving potential or good quality life)

            or may be they dont have a choice,
            atleast 10 million of them happened to have that opinion.
            and i am sure more than 50% of the rest, arent even aware of their sorry lot .

            10 million Indians want to move to US: poll

              10 Years (Engg + MBA). You should be on some managerial position. I recommend.....

              US and ONLY US if the person's work is anywhere related to IT.

              Any developed country if the person is in Medical, as in any case he/ she needs to upgrade his/ her already earned degree.

              UK/ Europe Tax is much higher than US and AU and Salary offered is comparitively less, though the living standard is the best, so the saving will take a beating.

              Australia offers top Salaries, so does the tax and commodity prices with Sun, Beaches and Bear. Savings are no less than US but you may face occasional racism (more than US and UK). Healthy living conditions due to comparitively good weather (in comparision with US and UK) but UV index is at its peak so more prone to skin cancer or related diseases.

              Japan for Automobile related workers, issues are food and language. Yen have no value, so dont expect much savings here. People are sweet and helpful by nature.

              Singapore/ Hong Kong is for businessman or investment banker/ Finanace related. World class facilities which even beats any big shiny city of any developed country hands down. Security of life. No prob of fooding due to cosmopolitan culture. Saving are better as compare to Malaysia/Indonesia, Thailand, Europe, Korea but not comparable to AU and US.

              Dubai/ Bahrain/ Qatar (Middleast) good only if you are able to negotiate salary in USD. Good savings but life is not comparable due to weather and culture.

              Thai/ Malay/ Indo only good for holidays. Islam at its peak. Conservative people apart from big cities but still you need to behave very carefuly including in Middleast too.

              SA decent salary, decent life but no security. Any moment a black will come and thrash u at road side. Same is the case with Brazil too.

              Argentina decent spanish people and salary same as Malay/ Thai, may be a bit more. Saving not comparable even to UK.
              Mexico i guess their economy runs on supplying illegal drugs to US and sun, booze with good beaches. Rowdy people, sexy chicks.

              China for manufacturing people only. People says that its future world power like US is now, so why not shift now. My version Jab banega tab shift ho jana. Simple logic US is world power from decades still if one have skills then H1-B is not a big deal.

              France/ Germany almost impossible to get work without knowing their language. Cold to death. French people are sweet, but germans are staight forward thus you may find them rude. Working conditions are the best in whole europe.

              Summary - For an IT person, Settle hona hai to US. Sirf paisa kamana hai to Middle east that only and only if you can negotiate Salary in USD's (which is difficult but not impossible to do). AU if you are ok with occasional racism but you inturn gets good Salary weather + UV but job opportunities are nowhere near US, UK, India, Singapore, Germany etc.

              Holidays a trip to Europe/ Thai. Infra Hong Kong/ Singpore. Malay/ Indo wahi delhi/ Mum wali bheed bhad, pollution etc (spl. in Indo).
              Canada/ NZ - Good balanced atmosphere to raise your childrens but with limited job opportunities. +ive side once you get citizenship (mostly in 5 years) you are open to work in US/ AUS w.o any visa, due to their trade agreements with respective country govts.

              PS: Above views are from a working professional (IT) prespective, who generally lives in capitals or big cities due to their work routine. So if you are planning to open your own business in some small city than you may find few of the points irrelevant.

              Last but not the least, Sab moh maya hai, Sab yahi reh jana hai. Paisa, Power, Property even Relations kuch bhi saath nahi jayega..
              Like lord Krishna says in Geeta. Jo huwa woh accha hua, Jo ho raha hai woh accha ho raha hai, Jo hoga woh bhi accha hoga, tumhara kya gaya jo tum rote ho,tum kya laye the Jo tumne kho diya Tumne kya paida kiya jo nasht ho gaya Tumne jo liya yahise liya Jo diya yahi par diya Jo aaj tumhra hai woh kal kisi aur ka tha Kal kisi aur ka hoga..

              So jahan raho khush raho, content raho..50-60 saal ki life (from which we already lost atleast half of it). Remaining should be spent happily instead of running after something which wont be ours ULTIMATELY.

              Cheers!!!

                  For an IT engineer, Silicon Valley is the place to be. Cost of living is high but salaries are also high. Some top-grade universities in the region mean good education for kids is available nearby.

                  I have personally looked into moving to Vancouver, Canada. Quality of life is the best among all major cities across the world but not many major IT companies are present in that city.
