Top 7 Countries for Immigration

Top 7 Countries for Immigration:

Immigration is basically meant to change your location towards a non-native country to live. It could be for different purposes it may be for work, study or living itself. Every year thousands of people change their countries. As per the UN report, 258 Million international immigrants were recorded globally in 2017 (People residing in a country other than their country of birth). This represented 3.4% of the total world’s population. Out of which as most as 150.3 Million Immigrant was workers whereas the least was 4.8 Million Immigrant students. However, today the ratio of immigrant travelers is now higher than past i.e 2% in 2000 & 2.3% in 1980’s but now the ratio is 3.4%. Moreover, the report said remittances of about $480 Billion had transferred to middle income & low-income countries through these immigrants worldwide. However, this ranking is taken from a global report published by US News.

Note: One thing which I observed in the report was most of the international immigrant i.e 110 Million are coming from Asia while on the other side, most of the international immigrant is also going to Asia i.e 80 Million. So, agree or not the most potential for immigrants is within just Asia. But Asians don’t bother it.
