Immigration is an essential part of all nations in the world. People move to other cities and countries other than their own for various reasons. Most of them make such a move because of their job or better opportunities or for some it is just the experience of living a life that is culturally different from their own. There are both advantages and disadvantages when you immigrate to a different country. Given the opportunity would you be happy to move to another country ? If so, do you have any particular place in mind?

@kiran8 Living somewhere else for a short period of time is okay, but there is nothing like our own country.

My parents emigrated from the Netherlands to Canada. I've never moved very far from the area I grew up in...I've travelled but haven't relocated. Now in the next few months I will be moving 1700 km to another province in Canada. This should be an exciting and interesting new beginning.

If you travelled 1.700 km in Europe, you'd cross several countries!

@MALUSE That's why relatives from the Netherlands are always surprised at the distances we travel.

@Morleyhunt , it is like here in India .. culturally we are so diversified that for a South Indian , living in northern India would be like living in a different part of the world , so also the eastern and Western parts , having totally different food habits and way f life.

Before it's my plan that someday I migrate to other country like America. But I have no plan to live else where. Though our country is developing, I don't want to leave it. My country is the land of birth.

I will only be happy to live in another country if my family or loved ones is going to be with me.

@dpk262006 It may not be what you are used to in your country but it is a new experience that may be better or worse again depending on how we take it.

@kiran8 I don't search for the jobs these days because I know I will have to relocate and for that I am not interested. As far as for transfer I will deny for it if my boss asks for it.

I do not want to leave the United States, but if I had to I would be fine in another English language country. I think I would do fine in Canada, Australia, and so on. But I would be so out of sorts if I lived in a country where English wasn't the primary language.

I have lived in a number of different countries and would be happy to do so again. I lived in Guyana till I was 13. I lived in the Sudan for a short time twice, I then spent some time in Malaysia, then many years in Australia before coming back to the UK.
