In the last couple of years, a negative trend against immigration has really forced people to a ponder and rethink about their immigration goals.
Thus, the one question that clearly comes in the mind of every immigrant is, which country is still the best for immigration? Which country should I plan to move under the current immigration scenario?
Now, let’s take a look as to which two countries are still the best immigrants options to consider for all immigrants or aspirants.
Canada and Australia- The two best Immigration Destinations in the world
Both Australia and Canada offer almost the same career options, social security benefits, infrastructure, livable cities, education system, and living standards to the immigrants from different parts of the world. There are a few distinct qualities in both these countries, which make them the most preferred of immigrants.
When other advanced nations like the USA and UK are controlling the numbers of immigrants into their countries, Canada and Australia are still inviting and accepting foreign migrants in large numbers. Canada, in particular, has an immigration target of over 300,000 for the last two years.
Both Countries have almost the same or identical point-based immigration system and they both adopt online and paper-based applications.
Also, Australia and Canada both have more than one immigration program or visa category to allow immigrants into their countries. The organized immigration system in the two countries completes the immigration process quicker and allow them permanent residency visa as well.
But on the other way round, many advanced countries have tougher immigration rules and procedures which makes the immigration application process more difficult.
There is a high level of diversity in cultures in both countries. Hence it allows the immigrants in the country without doing any discrimination based on race, ethnicity, religion, background, or nationality. This is the reason why a huge part of their population some way or other has an immigration background.
