  • Have you seen tripwolf []?

    Ordinary morality is for ordinary people. -- Aleister Crowley
    • Thanks. That gives me a few more ideas.

      • That was more meant as a "isn't this already doing what you want" :) What do you feel is missing there? More meta-information?

        • I explicitly want something where someone can say "I want to move to another country, where can I go?" What they often want, though, is really information about the legal requirements they face. For example, I briefly described how to get a job in the UK [], but that's out of date (not much) and specific to the UK.

          What are marriage laws per country? Can you get in via ancestry? Can you get -- or do you even need -- a work permit? Does legally working in a country long enough give you an automatic path to citizenship (USA: generally "no". UK: generally "yes"). What legal restrictions are in place if you take a job offer somewhere? (e.g., I have free health care, but if I'm out of work more than 28 days, I face deportation). What countries are really easy to get into?

          By building a community site where people who live around the world can contribute up-to-date information, there might be an excellent opportunity for someone to try this as the Wikipedia of emigration: an excellent starting resource which nonetheless requires detailed research after basic information is gathered.

          • Ah, now I see. That sounds like a very good idea to me. I don't know if anything like this already exists. But since I remember the confusing parts of (only) moving from Austria to Germany, I can imagine this would be much appreciated, especially by people targetting countries that are further from where they are, and where the cultural differences are bigger.
