On today’s post, i’ll be sharing with you the easiest ways to move to Europe legally. Meaning, either as a student or through a job opportunity. Additionally, I will highlight some favourable countries for immigrants.

Let us admit it, even though we all love the mother land, it is always a plus to get a chance to experience life abroad. And in the long run also gain a dual citizenship or a permanent residence. I will not bother listing the pros of holding a double nationality as I presume you already know that.

Although I know that migrating to North America is the goal of many young Africans. But on the other hand, Europe could be a starting point while waiting to make it to the promise land. At least it is a step towards the right direction if you ask me.

This post will include several sections, feel free to choose the shoe that fits your situation.

I bet most people outside Europe do not believe that you can actually get a job in Europe with full visa sponsorship. Well news flash you can! And this is another easy way to move.

As always, I give you information that is tried and tested. With solid proof that it works. I have family and friends that have moved from Nigeria with the recommendations I will be sharing in this section.

Under this category I will share the top websites, companies and countries that offer jobs with full visa sponsorship. Although most of these jobs are in IT and engineering, but you will find plenty of jobs in other areas, like business, sales, health care, and education.


The links below are not limited to Europe but you can refine your search to any European country you desire

Most people might not like living in Central or Eastern Europe however, this is another passport to getting into Europe. Infact, it’s one of the easiest way to move to Europe. International companies have are opening offices all round the cheap parts of Europe, hence creating jobs for expats. The idea is to get in first, and move to your desired location after if you so desire.

Companies I know like; AT&T, Amazon, Microsoft, Accenture, SAP, Honeywell, Exxon Mobil, Avast, Solaris Bank, etc offer visa sponsorship for jobs. All you need do is just refine your search on the their website to central or Eastern Europe (while searching for a position online).

In conclusion, there is a french saying I love so much. “Qui cherche, trouve”… Meaning he who seeks, FINDS! So if you really want to move abroad you must be wiling to search, because for sure you will find. I hope these easiest ways to move to Europe highlighted in this article is helpful to someone.

Best of luck guys…xx
