7 countries where you will also be “paid” if you decide to move there
It may sound somewhat absurd, but there are several countries in the world that are ready to provide material support to all those who decide to settle on their territory. True, not everything is so simple and you will need to observe a few key points.
The small village of Ponga, located in the province of Asturias in northeastern Spain, is famous not only for being one of the oldest settlements in the country and located in a protected area, but also for its generous (in the literal sense of the word) hospitality. The thing is that the authorities of this settlement dream of changing the economic and demographic situation, so they are ready to pay € 3,000 to each pair of lovers who are ready to settle in this wonderful place. And if the spouses have an heir, they will receive another € 3,000 (and so for each child born in the village). By the way, this proposal has already interested a large number of lovers of beautiful landscapes, old buildings and connoisseurs of the purest ecology.
We have already told that the authorities of many Italian towns are ready to offer property for the price of a cup of coffee to everyone, but in the village of Bormida, located in the province of Savona (80 kilometers from the city of Genoa), they decided to go even further and “lure” residents to themselves using generous payments (€ 2 thousand) and attractive prices for apartment rent (from € 50 to € 120 per month). And despite the fact that there is practically no work in the settlement (which is why, in fact, the local residents left from there in search of a better life), many people from different countries, whose professional activities presuppose the opportunity to work remotely, decided to take advantage of this opportunity. True, they are all interested in one nuance – is there a high-speed Internet connection in the village and are there any interruptions with cellular communication?
For fans of America, we also found a very interesting offer. For example, the city of Detroit, which in the second half of the 20th century was called the “Paris of the West” and the “Automobile Capital of the USA”, is currently experiencing hard times and is trying to regain its former glory by all means. The city authorities even developed a special program called Challenge Detroit, which should attract specialists from various industries. It is assumed that professionals who have chosen Detroit as a place to live and work will be paid $ 2.5 thousand and will provide all kinds of support during the adaptation period.
The authorities of the small Japanese village of Misima, where about 400 people live, dream of “rejuvenating” the population and offer the brave people about $ 840 and monthly payments in the first three years after the move (as it were, as support and moral compensation). However, many young people are frightened by the fact that, in fact, there are no prospects and entertainments on the three small islands (where the settlement itself is located) and it is not clear what you can do after the move (perhaps, to develop agriculture).
In this fifth largest and sixth most populous province of the country will be welcome young professionals who have just received a diploma and have not yet found where to apply their knowledge and talents. Local authorities offer beginner professionals to move in with them for the next 7 years (in the hope that they will remain there further) and receive about 20,000 Canadian dollars as a “lift”. And if you also dreamed of moving to Canada and trying your hand there, then you can familiarize yourself with the main criteria and requirements for immigration to this area (all information is specified in the province’s immigration program).
The Tasmanian authorities also invite everyone to live on the island Matsayker, an area of 1.86 km ². On this small, green island, you will be provided with housing and work (for example, to serve the lighthouse located there, to provide meteorological reports, to monitor the land and buildings). This offer is suitable only for those who are not attracted by the lights of the big city, and who are ready to give up all sorts of entertainment in return for unity with nature and meditation.
Another option for lovers of quiet life away from prying eyes is Pitcairn Islands, located in the South Pacific (relatively close to New Zealand). According to the latest data, only 50 people live here, so you are guaranteed to be provided with land for building a house and will be given all kinds of support (as long as you adapt to island life). By the way, many people who wanted were pushed away by the fact that there was one store in this “paradise” that only worked three days a week, and
