Why do people want to move to a foreign country?

Why do people want to immigrate to the United States?

Why do people want to move to the UK?

Why do people want to immigrate to Australia, Canada or France?

Why do some people from UK, Germany, Holland-Netherlands- Greece, Syria, etc  want to move or immigrate to Türkiye?

 

For a good life?

For marriage, love, employment, education, adventure, psychological reasons, family tree, getting a professional advancement, a better  economic situation, cultural standarts, etc.

And the case of legal immigrants, illegal immigrants and refugees?

I have seen a large number of immigrants in Europe during my first travel.

I think there are a great  many reasons why people come to a foreign country?

 

 

I see there are some sad and tragic lives -lifes- as immigrants in the world countries like " Migratory Birds".

There may probably be as many different motives as the number of emigrants in the world. It is possible to classify them into several groups which are already pretty obvious.

 

There is one however which I feel quite common especially among youngsters. These people make little money working in stressful jobs day in day out. After a few tries which end up with the usual frustration they hear stories of other people who have made it big in Europe or America. Especially if they are not skilled enough or patient enough to gain experience at the very least, the system turns them into losers. They begin knocking every door to obtain a visa. Those who are lucky enough make it even more difficult for others when they become illegal workers in another country. This whole thing continues like this in a vicious circle.

 

A common short-cut the take is getting into relationship with a foreign woman. I know dozens of Turkish guys who don´t even consider those foreign girls as proper humans. They are never good enough for marrying. I don´t how but they are usually able to fool these women.

 

It is sad for those women but it is also sad for those losers too. Because there seems to be no cure for their sad lives...

I want to move to a different country to see something of the world. The world is SOOO big, and by living in my tiny country I´m just experiencing a small part of it. I think that´s a waste I want to experience more in life, and being on holiday is very different then really living somewhere else.

I´m not drawn to another country for money. I can get plenty of that at home I´m not drawn to another country for love. I already had big plans to move and work abroad before I started to fall in love with bronzed beach-boys It´s a bit of adventure, and a big chunck of curiosity, and a feeling of wanting to get the most out of life. It´s just so damn short!

That´s a good question, Yilgun, but it´s impossible to give a good answer to it. Like Vineyards said, there are as many reasons as there are immigrants.

 

I decided to leave my homeland because I felt the ratio of salary to the cost of living was out of proportion. I wanted to live in a place where you can afford a normal life without having to have 3 jobs. As I moved to Ireland, it wasn´t a huge cultural shock as I don´t have to compromise my beliefs in order to live according to the Irish law. I can´t imagine moving to a country whose legal system violates what I believe in or disgusts me (like eg Saudi Arabia). Not for all the money in the world. And I definitely would not like my child to grow up in a country that does not grant him what I think it should, like the freedom of religion or gender equality.

I migrated for languages and for curiosity.Italy did not disappointed me and I gained decent money there,just to compare-an hour of tutoring in my country 10 E,in Italy 25)))when I came back from Italy I was rich))well,loved the food and people-made a lot of friends but never had a single thought to stay pernamently,was in London as well,working in Spanish restaurant with a boss I hated.Not to mention his remarks and sandwiches...when hungry and without salary stood in front of a shop with cakes and was thinking"when i get the money I will buy the biggest cake"and then payment day came and never bought the cake,sent most of the money to my country to help family.I guess i could earn more if i was submissive but my rebellious soul and my jamon"stinking"boss were never compatible.

Then Spain and all good things except one-terrible longing for my country and my people.Good job,decent salary but damn loneliness.
