2. USA

Not every USA state is ready to give a warm welcome to people moving in, but Alaska is a different story.

3. Ireland

Ireland may not accept everyone who wants to relocate there, but it wants to see one specific category of people as its expats.

If you have always enjoyed the mountainous views of Switzerland and dreamed of the day you could enjoy them from your own window, the time might have come.
