So many persons need to know more about visiting, hustling and possible getting work permit or green card in the schengen countries...

I wish there could be someone to make this thread lively by giving us his experience over there and possible opportunities towards gaining green card in these countries. I myself would appreciate if there's anyone out there who could help.....
God bless you.

OK bro. That's a lot for the reply. Atleast it has helped me know some things abt Germany. Others who will read this thread will also be thankful for the information.

Now, my question is this; if asylum is the only way, how easy is it to seek asylum in Germany? We would appreciate any ideas and I'll will be grateful to learn from you.

Please guys over there, we know you went through a lot to get to the level you are in right now and would not want to share some experiences. But we won't mind hearing those experiences if they would help us make some decisions. We need ur ideas on moving to Europe. Maybe through visit visa, study visa etc. How to forge ahead once a person gets in. Thanks in anticipation.

German asylum system for a Nigerian is 30:70
Italy or France always consider but Germans?
Germans can waste someone's life like kilode
Everybody is not the same
Your luck is diff from mine
Re: Best European Country To Live In. by petemail2all(m): 8:26am On Nov 19, 2017
Thanks for the reply once again. But we don't mind knowing abt ur experience. We could learn one or two things from it. The reason I'm asking is that an agent is working on a schengen visa for me currently but has refused to let me know what next before or after the 3months expires. He says I should just wait till the visa is out. But I need to know my options too and be prepared. He works with a company there who will be sending an invite for me.

Myself and others who will come through this thread will be grateful to know your experiences which ever country it may be, not necessarily Germany.

Great thread. I've been planning to study in Canada with a view to settling there. My problem is I don't think my kids will be given a visa with me (I have 2 boys, 11 and 12). The whole Canada ish is too stressful so I've decided to apply to European schools as a viable plan b. The truth is I actually prefer a European education for myself and my boys. I like the idea of Germany because of its strong economy. I don't mind the language issue as I plan to learn german immediately although my studies will be in English. My kids are currently learning german and French in school so I think they'll be fine. I am looking at doing a Bachelors degree which is 3 years, giving me enough time to acquire a permanent stay. So my questions are:
Is this a good plan? I am widowed so I will be alone with my kids. I have some money so I should be reasonably comfortable until I find some work.
What towns do I need to avoid? Any advise would be much appreciated.

@seunny4lif you see, people are already reading the thread. Like I said we need a mentor here. We need someone who is currently in Europe to come to our aid. We just need some guidance. We will greatly appreciate. Thanks.

To travel to Europe is one thing, to settle down permanently (Residency) is another thing entirely. Really, It is no longer wise to choose to live illegally in Europe as it now very tight to carry out day to day activities without papers. I will like to state it here that it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to switch to a residence permit in Europe if you entered with a visit visa. They have successfully blocked all loopholes which used to enable people to easily switch to Residence permit even if they came in with a visit visa.

Now, the ways through which you can get a residence permit includes...

Getting married to a citizen. Now, u are not allowed to get married in the country if u came in with a visit visa, even if you successfully get married, you won't be allowed to apply for a spousal visa from within the country, you will have to go back to your own country to make the application and trust me, its a taugh process and still, the visa is not guaranteed.

Another way is coming in as a student, which i think is the best option. Here u can get a job after graduation and apply for residency or if you are lucky to find love, you can easily get married and apply for a spouse visa without leaving the country and the visa is almost guaranteed.

Another option includes going as a skilled migrant specifically for those in IT and Medical fieds.

For those planning to seeks asylum, the chances of success is less than 20% and they end up sending you back home after wasting your time in detention camps. This route is strongly not advisable.

Really, the best way to travel abroad is via student visa. This option opens you to several opportunities...

A visit visa is almost useless in all Western European countries if your ultimate plan is to immigrate. Its only in American, Canada and maybe Australia (am not sure about this) that you can easily get married and switch your visitors visa to a resident permit. In Europe, its not possible, and you will find it very hard if not impossible to survive if you don't have the legal papers to work plus the police won't let you rest.

So please my people, while making plans, please make sure you are getting the right info.

Wow. Thanks a lot for this helpful advice. I really appreciate it. I guess others too will have a lot to learn from it. Another question is this, is it possible to get a company to give a work permit to someone on a visit visa.

As much as I would love to give you a positive answer to this, the truth is that, the right answer is negative.
Even those that graduated from schools there SOMETIMES find it difficult to get company to sponsor their work visa. In your case, even if you do get a company that is willing to offer you a job, you still need to go back home and apply for the work visa from your home country if you are there on visit visa.

Am glad you were able to complete your plan.
May I please ask what kind of visa you travelled with?
Re: Best European Country To Live In. by petemail2all(m): 8:39pm On Nov 20, 2017
