The expansion of the European Union witnessed over the last ten or 15 years has brought with it a significant change in European attitudes towards
emigration. Whereas once most immigration in continental Europe tended to be focussed on lifestyle-rich countries like Spain, Italy and France, the
opening up of the EU has meant that many looking at emigrating to Europe, especially those hailing from other EU countries, have moved where they can
The most recently released statistics reveal that over 3 million EU residents alone move to a different member state each year, with Spain, Italy and
Germany being the most popular destinations on the continent (not including the United Kingdom, while there were no recent figures for France), but
even countries like Estonia and Latvia, which are hardly renowned expat hotspots, now welcome in excess of 3,000 new European residents each year.
Each and every country within the EU is very different from the next, boasting its own history, its own culture, its own way of life, its own
infrastructure and, in most instances, its own language. Therefore, it’s simply impossible to compare the lifestyle on offer in Germany with that
of, say, Sweden, because it’s just so different in every aspect. Therefore, if you’re not an EU resident who is moving to your new EU destination
for employment reasons, then you’re going to need to do plenty of research into the country you are interested in moving to, including what you’ll
need to do to qualify to live there and what to expect once you arrive. It is perhaps also advisable to visit your destination country first and get a
feel for the area in which you are looking to live.
Are there any particular gains to be made from a british citizens getting a job , at say , mcdonalds or something easy , and then moving into any
other given country in europe quickly before brexit in march 2019 ?
What particular benefits may be had from becoming an expat under the old system, which will be no longer be a given fact, for a while at least
so doing it before and during and probably after brexit ? Because time is running out for that to be an option for British residents , or is it not ?
Should the horses bolt from the stable if they're spooked ?
While the number of migrants from europe in the uk has decreased, there is unlikely to be an influx to the uk at this late stage .
Should we brits be making an exodus for a while , just in case ?
