Advice for the right country for me.

If a foreigner wants to work in the US, there are fees and other terms and conditions apply as well.
For foreigners who want to move to the US: Immigrant Visa Application Processing Fees (non-refundable, per person)
Immediate relative and family preference applications (processed on the basis of an approved I-130, I-600 or I-800 petition) $325.00
Employment-based applications (processed on the basis of an approved I-140 or I-526 petition) $345.00
Their health care system is extremely expensive over there and university fees increase year by year.
 
I have not been to this website for a very long time, hence, sorry for my late reply. :)
I have to say the countries where you have chosen are typical choices of Europeans I know, especially from the part of Europe you come from.
Germany: for a very long time Germany remains to have the best economy in Europe. Today, Germany continues to be one of the world’s most powerful and dynamic economies. This is why you chose Germany. I think a lot of Spanish moved to Germany because of their high unemployment rates.
Switzerland: you want to go there because their salary is higher, just like French or Germans who have moved there to work, or perhaps the Italians as well. However, Lugano is small and is like a Hollywood star residence area. I doubt that there are many jobs available. The French parts of Switzerland are more expensive than the German parts. There is one problem with migrating to rich countries or cities, unless you got a very good job you would need to work 2 to 3 jobs to survive over there. Swiss German is different from high German. However, the Germanophones understand each other. For foreigners, it can be difficult.
The Netherlands: Dutch economy expands at the fastest rate since joining the euro. Every year when I take a look at the world's richest countries, they seem to be improving while the France drops its ranking year by year. However, I don't know much about the Dutch, to be honest.
Finally, Luxembourg: there are a lot of Portuguese in Luxembourg. Limitations: From what I know they look down at the Portuguese over there. Advantages: It is the wealthiest country in the EU, and you already have many of your own people over there, networking is very important to get jobs. To survive in Luxembourg, you need French and English or German, you may need to learn Luxembourger as well. However, I think the Luxembourgers are relatively friendier than the Swiss on average. They are similar to the Swiss, very discreet people. They keep to themselves. As a Southern European, you may find them cold.
Most Europeans learn each other's languages. Aside from Portuguese, and English, have you mastered your German and French well? With countries who use multiple languages such as Luxembourg, Switzerland probably Belgium as well, you need to specialise in one of their main languages with a skill (Medicine, IT, Engineer, MBA...etc). With the other languages spoken in their countries, you need at least a sound level in those languages. You cannot be clueless, if you want to get a job.

Minty, thanks for your reply and insight!

Well, if you want to go to the UK, you better do it ASAP because of Brexit. Theresa May said on July 31 that it was “wrong” to suggest the free movement of people will “continue as it is now” after March 2019.

After this date, EU workers moving to the UK will have to register until a permanent post-Brexit immigration policy is put in place.

Well, with regards to your IT skills, as far as I know, they do recognise each other's skills within Europe. If you are European, it is much easier to have your skills recognised than people who are outside of Europe, except, perhaps people from the commonwealth.

However, it is different with the commonwealth. The British have always charged a high fee for the movement of their Asian commonwealth members migrating into the UK. Hence, the Asians who can migrate or go there to study as overseas students in the UK are always the upper class. My birth country Malaysia, for example, all the prime ministers, the arostocrats and the other rich people all have English degrees. The middle upper class, tend to stay there after graduation while the top of the pyramid go back because they are the upper class of the Malaysian society. If you are are rich and powerful, why would you want to live under another ethnic and put up with racism amongst other things.

The British like the well-educated middle-upper class immigrants who bring profits to the country. They do not wish to continue with the EU, is partly due to too many poor Europeans enter into the UK and the UK ended up helping them much more than them giving back to the UK. I suppose what I am saying is that the British prefer wealthy immigrants rather than poor immigrants.

With Australia, due to the high amount of divorce fee due to Brexit, I heard that they made it difficult for UK citizens who have foreign spouses to return to the UK. Thousands more Britons will be barred from bringing their foreign husbands and wives to the UK, under plans in the Conservative manifesto.
Australians who want to study in the UK also have to pay the high fee just like the Asian commonwealth members. Having said that, I have never heard of white people business migrate to another first world country. Business immigrants are predominantly Chinese origins people. With the others, from what I know are either skill immigrants who got sponsored after graduation or they married somebody in that country and hence they immigrated to that country.

The UK has too many immigrants. The working and middle class British are fed up with this. The government also lacks money. Hence, they will increase the earnings thresholds for people wishing to sponsor migrants for family visas. Moreover, they will toughen the visa requirements for students, to make sure that they maintain high standards.Furthermore, they will expect students to leave the country at the end of their course, unless they meet new, higher requirements that allow them to work in Britain after their studies have concluded.

That's the thing. I am not yet! :)

Zurich is harder to get work than London and maybe more expensive. That's why i said i got to get well payed.
Too risky without good money as without a good German level if i get fired i might have trouble finding another job.

As i speak fluent English, London is a safer bet!

Most Foreigners in the US after a while feel Americans, (I Belong).
Not so in Europe.
 
In North Korea you can ski and they would certainly find a job for you.

Yeah; some European countries are very discriminating against foreigners!

I'd like to live in the US but i don't have time for the visa stuff and waste my time looking for sponsorship etc.

Their ski resort is not bad actually. About the job i don't know who would want to work there...
I know you are kidding.
But if for you North Korea is that good, why don't you leave Switzerland and move there?

Well you know....since I originally come from an ex communist country, I think I've tried enough of that. [emoji1] Sure it was a joke. Did you you actually try those ski resorts there? Or did you see it in TV?

I recommend you Republic of Congo. You will be like a king there and they will certainly find you a job there!
What are you doing in Switzerland? Such a crappy country!

Hurry back to croatia or bulgaria! In the end of the day you're all in the same bag!

Love brought me to Switzerland. I was kidding, didn't mean to offend you.

Seriously, Switzerland is not that far away. They have a good standard. But someone with southern blood will need some time to adapt. You can ski all around the country within a reasonable driving distance. Summers are hot and there are many rivers and lakes to swim in. In Ticino region you have palm trees and warm mediterranean climate.

Good luck with your relocation. Wherever you decide to go.

All the best to you for your relocation :)

I'm set on Zurich! Because its where most jobs and opportunities are available!
 
Slovenia. I know u said no former communist countries but your paranoia is unfounded. Slovenia is probably safer than portugal. It is a beautiful country with mountains and sea. The economy is the best from all of former communist europe and the people are open and friendly.
 
I like the US.
I love music gear and high end technology stuff; there's plenty there!
But i don't want to waste my time applying for a visa or whatever...

You never know. I got my Visa in just 2 months. Just apply!
 
Come to America. You are an IT expert, get some CompTia Certifications: A+, Network+, Security+, also some Microsoft OS Certification.
Apply to Companies, and take it from there.
