What is the Best Age to Immigrate?
Whether they follow through with it or not, just about everybody considers the possibility of immigration at some point or another. It’s a wide world out there with plenty of places to settle in, and there is something about the human spirit that craves new beginnings, adventures and changes.
But immigration is not an activity to be taken lightly, many immigration applications come alongside some stringent requirements that for some, cannot be overcome easily. In such cases, you need to have few to no responsibilities, plenty of room for growth, and enough energy to start a new life, somewhere else. This begs the question of which age-groups fair the best when looking to move abroad. The answer is not so surprising; youth counts for a lot.
Immigration is Easier Before your 30s
There’s something about leaving the comfort of your 20’s that changes a lot about life. In terms of immigration, those below this age are far more likely to submit a successful immigration application than those who are older. Even with the applications aside, waiting past your 30s to immigrate can make things a little more complicated. Finding employment and settling down with all your creature comforts can be a challenge. While immigrating after your 30’s have arrived is doable, those under that age will find the going far smoother.
Having Responsibilities Complicates the Matter
Tying on to the age factor, having an assortment of responsibilities like debt, a home, pets and especially children, makes the process of immigration a little more complicated, not only for the person looking to immigrate, but also with regards to their application. Since, in modern times, people tend to put off having children, moving out and accruing debt until they have gotten the most out of their 20’s, this is also the age where immigration becomes a little easier.
The Youth have Room to Grow
In terms of what you have to offer your destination country, and with regards to how well you handle the whole experience of immigration, the youth have quite a bit more to offer, simply because they still have a lot of developing and changing to do.
Those in their twenties are not yet set in their ways, making the cultural shock of immigrating more of an adventure than a hassle.
Furthermore, embassies know that younger candidates are able to adapt culturally, socially and professionally, meaning that they likely have more to offer; and so they stand more of a chance of a successful application.
