Far cheaper to go offgrid and pay for extra security.
Just saying..
That's assuming your motivation to emigrate is safety & security. And even then you can't live in a fortress, you have to get out and buy food and travel to work etc.

There may be a misconception that Saffers living abroad often get together, braaing under an umbrella :twisted: , to mope and bitch about SA's problems. Why they moved, blaming this and that.... couldn't be further from the truth, at least within the quite large group of expats I know and mingle with.
heinrich,

Not?? You just burst my bubble......................................it was one of the things (not the umbrella bit) that I was looking so much forward to! :roll:

Presumably the cost of immigrating differs widely depending on the destination?
The cost of renting certainly differs. Here in Spain, at least the area where I live, landlords only require 1 month in advance, so there is a saving of at least Eu 1200

Paul,

We are seeing more and more countries starting to stop the influx of "unskilled" or "non affluent" migrants.
There is a tendency to require large cash deposits or start a business / invest in a local business to obtain a Visa.
Easiest way is still work sponsored / or Retirement Visa (as long as they allow it).
