Where will your age take you?

When it comes to relocation, there is far more that can impact the final decision than simply the lifestyle on offer. While some thrive for alfresco living, others move abroad in order to pursue a fantastic career opportunity, but age is often a defining factor in deciding the purpose for relocating and also the destination.

From the right time to move, to the opportunities available overseas, here at Santa Fe Relocation, we’re taking a closer look at how age can define where we relocate.

Career-driven expatriates

Salary is often a key consideration for expatriates who are starting out in their career or in the midst of obtaining a promising position once they have some international management experience. This is often between the age of 22 and 35 – before the retrospective employee settles down with children. There are a number of key locations for a money-driven expatriate to choose from, with Bahrain, Singapore, Germany and Switzerland being some of the best countries for a successful expat career. Those without children may find it easier to relocate, whether it is for work purposes or for an improved lifestyle. However, depending on the country and the type of visa required, those planning to relocate may need to secure a form of work before moving abroad. In some cases, this temporary form of work may need to be a part of what is known as ‘defined skilled’ jobs list.

Further to this, some expatriates may be seeking study opportunities abroad which are unavailable in their home country, further widening their knowledge and cultural understanding of the world around them. For 18-25 year olds who are relocating for educational purposes, the United States, the United Kingdom, Switzerland and Singapore are home to some of the world’s top rated universities.

Moving with children

Global relocation can be a particularly challenging feat but moving with children can result in a number of other challenges. Firstly, the availability of international schooling should be a key consideration. While there are countries around the world which can cater for expatriate children, the decision on which country to move to will mainly rest on the opportunities which are available for the children. Austria, Brazil, Brunei, China, India, Taiwan and the UK are home to some of the best international schools in the world. The main reason for moving abroad with children is to seek a better quality of life or to follow a career with children in tow.

Retiring overseas

Retirement age is a key factor in where an individual may relocate to. The International Living Retirement Indexsuggests that Peru, Spain, Nicaragua, Malaysia and Costa Rica are amongst some of the best locations for retirees, due to low costs of living, affordable medical care, welcoming communities and their first world nature.

When it comes to relocation, age can have a significant impact on the final destination. There are a number of reasons as to why an individual may be considering a move to another country, and their purpose and age often coincide to provide the location which guarantees success.
