Need Advise & Suggestions about moving abroad.

Hey guys.. recently I've been thinking to move out of country. Last time I've been out of country was back in 2009 went to Saudi Arabia for holidays for 45 days. In Q1 2015 i'll be visiting my brother in UAE hopefully. Now I've been working in my own country from last almost 4 years continuously and used to work as a part timer in a Call Center when I was in College. Reason for why I'm thinking to move abroad is things aren't working out well for me here as there's no Savings at all and expenses are increasing and economy is going down and down every single day. Prices of every single thing is going up like for instance a thing was for $5 5 years ago is now for $20 now and it applies on everything we talk about coz everything has been up 200 to 250% roughly in just past few years and keeps on increasing. Salary scales are same and but expenses are getting increasing and getting secondary job is impossible as already working more then full-time. Well that's not certain that if I will be able to move to another country so things will always turn out to be bright and good I know there are chances too but of course I should try while thousands of other tried and majority of them succeeded.

So tell me where should I try for excluding Middle-Eastern countries coz I would keep UAE as an alternate where I can actually go easily but there are so many troubles there as living expenses are just way too much. So need advise and suggestions where I can at least try the rest is depends on the case and procedures of course whether I will get a visa or get rejected

Have you thought of moving to the U.S? Job markets are tough world wide, including here but if you could line up a sponsor and a job, you should be welcome here. There is a huge range of climates and scenery here so you could either go for what's familiar or something new.

aah I would love to come to USA and thought of it so many times but problem is Visa rules and regulations for a newbie like me for US are just impossible. They require travel history, long bank statements and 100's of reasons I once asked my uncle for a sponsorship but he didn't do anything and have many relatives there and some of them are citizens now while other have green cards and everything but they are good for nothing so I never asked them and besides that we don't know much about each others. So I think USA is a long way to go like 5 or 6 years maybe in some other country first

Too bad that people illegally crossing borders and living there and thousands like me who want to go legally and through proper procedures and rules are not able to come

Hey Bilal, best get into the UK before David Cameron (Prime Minister) shuts the door on immigration, you could claim asylum because the cost of living is getting higher in Pakistan, mind you, it's the same everywhere, Not as steep as Pakistan but not far off in the UK.

Aah David I'd love to go anywhere from England, Canada or USA but these 3 are the most Visa-challenging countries for Pakistanis now.. if you take a look at Visa Requirements for Pakistani Citizens over Wikipedia you will be shocked to see that 99% of the Countries required us to obtain a Visa before going anywhere and USA, UK and Canada has the toughest policies I was thinking into moving to some Eastern-European country like Germany but will have to learn German first and still it's not sure if I will get the Visa in first attempt as Schengen Zone has Schengen policies applied on us and wherever I want to move in Europe first I will need to learn their Language but that can be done I guess as there are many Language schools here.

First thing is if I'm trying to move to any country I want to go there on a Long-Term Visa as well as where I can work of course I know it's hard to find a job everywhere and it takes time to get settle in but still the situation is better there as compared to here. We get paid Monthly no matter what even we do overtime in Pakistan nobody gets paid on Hourly basis and only gets the pay at the end of the Month which is your fixed salary. Cant think to go anywhere on a student visa as well can't afford to that anymore as it requires a lot of expense as well as there are so many restrictions on working and permits etc. for students. What I want to do is take a fresh start and yes I do have enough money to apply visa, buy ticket, rent a room for a month or maybe two somewhere and keep searching for a job

Tbh I'm hardly making $200 a month and doing a full time job and working as a Administrator. My job is already at it's end as the place I'm working now is almost about to Shutdown due to financial reasons and i applied for jobs already here but got no call from last 2 months.. which worries me as I can't sit at home and it gives me creeps.

There's another thing about the flood of illegal immigration here in the U.S. that bites my ample asset. A large percentage of illegal immigrants don't speak English nor can they be bothered to. Even worse, they expect us natives to learn their language. You are to be commended for your willingness to learn a host country's language before immigrating!

Sad to hear all this and yes me pretty much aware of all of these things already good thing is I can read, write and communicate fluently in English and a good learner too so if chances takes shape for some country where English is not a primarily spoken I can learn there native language too before applying for the Visa I know little Lithuanian too btw still have a lovely friend who taught me few things about them language but Lithuania is still not an option haha
