5 Proven Ways for Africans to Easily Immigrate to Canada, USA, UK, Australia, etc.


Now, that’s a lot of people leaving the country! And you can’t blame them because most people go in search of better economic opportunities and a better standard of living. A United Nations University study found that economic inequality, political instability and climate change are among the factors pushing more Africans to immigrate.

Tips for successful immigration

As you may know, immigration is more than just packing up and leaving; especially in the 21st century. The decision to immigrate is a decision that requires a lot of thought and planning. Among these considerations are the following questions: What is the best route for me to immigrate? And in which country should I immigrate?

We understand that some of our readers are among those considering and currently considering immigrating. We also understand that this phase can be very confusing and difficult. That’s why we decided to share some helpful insights by highlighting the five proven ways by which Africans can easily immigrate to Europe, North America and other desired destinations.

Below are the 5 proven ways by which Africans can easily immigrate to Canada, USA, UK, Australia, etc.

It is a very viable option for young Africans who are specifically hoping to immigrate to the UK. According to information available on the UK Home Office website, “The graduate pathway enables the UK to retain the brightest and best international students to contribute to society and the economy after study under the points-based immigration system.”

There are several ways to travel this route. On the one hand, you can start by self-funding your studies in the UK or get a fully-funded scholarship that does not require you to return to your home country after the end of studies. And after you get your visa and fly to the next one, it behooves you to study hard and get really good grades in order to be desirable to employers.

2. Work path/skilled labor

Another easy way for many Africans to easily immigrate to other parts of the world is through the skilled labor route. As the name suggests, this route requires you to be skilled and able to work in order to make a significant contribution to the economies of the country you hope to immigrate to.

Countries like the UK, Canada, Australia and others are constantly looking for doctors, nurses, radiologists, IT professionals and other skilled workers. And this presents immense opportunities for Africans. However, you will need to pass certain tests as well as meet other criteria before you can immigrate.

Also note that companies with global operations (such as PwC, Ernst$Young, Nestlé, etc.) have been known to periodically ease the visa application process for some of their African employees. But it is generally on condition that the said employees have been able to obtain jobs abroad. A former Big-4 employee in Nigeria who recently immigrated to the UK told Business Insider Africa:

“In my industry, our experience can be transferred from company to company and country to country. However, for some countries you may need to pass additional exams to be able to practice at certain levels. For the UK I didn’t need any further examination, I applied for a job and got one and the company sponsored my visa and I traveled”.

3. The road to permanent residence

Chances are you have heard of the Canadian Permanent Residence Program. Many people from all over the world, including Africans, have been able to easily immigrate to the North American country through this route.

According to Business Insider Africa findings, Canada’s public relations program is run by a Canadian government department known as Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, IRCC. IRCC “facilitates the entry of permanent residents in a manner that maximizes their economic, social and cultural contribution to Canada while protecting the health and safety of Canadians.

To immigrate to Canada through permanent residence, you will need to pass the admissibility test. You can visit the Canadian immigration office website to learn more.

It is important to point out that Australia also has permanent residency. You can learn more about the requirements for this by visiting the Australian Department of Immigration website.

This is perhaps the easiest way for some Africans to immigrate to Europe, America, Asia and elsewhere. The basic thing that is required of you is to fall in love and marry someone who is already residing abroad. And There you go ! You are on your way…

Well, maybe it’s not as easy as it looks after all. Different countries have their own spousal visa requirements. So first do what is necessary by falling in love and marrying the love of your life. Next, find out about the spousal visa requirements for the country in which he resides.

5. Citizenship by Investment

This option is mostly preferred by wealthy Africans. As the name suggests, it is basically about obtaining citizenship/passport of another country by investing in the country. Again, this is not an accessible path for most Africans. However, if you have the means to explore it, then why not!
