To northern Europe.
29 May 2014, 15:10.
Forum I read a very long time, 5 years exactly. And now it is just time for a long and drearily elaborated question.
We love Scandinavia very much (mentality, culture, political system, stability, easy provincialism, and God, climate: eek:) and the Baltics (a troubled region, but beautiful, therefore, slightly less attractive for departure). Long thinking and analyzing, we came to the conclusion that we would like to immigrate there. About the reasons for this desire to speak is not very desirable, because this is a topic for a much more sad conversation.
We speak English at C1 level on the CEFR (Advanced) scale. Learn Swedish. The wife, of course, has a higher level, but I also teach. If necessary, you are ready to learn any other language. (Oh, yes, I’m still learning German at the university, a beautiful language, an infection, so I hope, too, at a good level will be).
2) Finish university – break off with work – go get a master’s degree in Finland / Sweden – get a job – stay.
3) Acquire real estate in Latvia, go there, live up to permanent residence, assess the situation (who knows, maybe even there, I always feel peace of mind in the Baltics)
4) Open your business, but this will require detailed study, while there are no ideas.
2) In which of the Nordic countries do you think is the most favorable (simple) migration climate? As it seems to me – in Finland, but then either learn Finnish (which in theory is possible, or seek shelter in the small Swedish-speaking regions).
3) How about working in the above-mentioned industries in Latvia? Something tells me that it’s not very .. But still? Latvian if that, are ready to learn.
In general, I will be happy if someone answers, shares advice, or simply takes part in the discussion. : lol:

But this is IT, with this education the chances would be good in any country’s scandal.
And with your chances only to study to get (it’s free in Norway so far, Sweden covered it a couple of years ago).
There are a lot of translators, this is more money for wives-housewives in freelance, authorized (passed the state exam) can have more orders, but still the main job in teaching or something else have. The tourist business is also doubtful, now there is a huge flow of Portugueses and Spaniards, who both Scandinavian has learned somehow, and a couple of languages other than English know and work in tourist places, in service business (hotels, restaurants) Scandinavians or Poles, high on the part of the rest of the EU, which does not need either a confirmation of education, or a visa.
If one was a humanist, and the second was a techie, then your hopes could be divided.

If the specialty is in demand, the graduates are recruited even six months before writing the diploma, and if not, then the 6-month visa will not help much.
In the Baltics, there are enough of those, I have enough close friends: yes, the Baltic countries themselves left for Zap Europe, mainly for material reasons, and the highly skilled cadres and workers.
But itself ���������� has more turned aside Russia after crisis 2009, therefore tourism, sale of the real estate (in Latvia ��� give while) with Russians are closely connected.
Again, many Scandinavian firms transfer back-offices to the Baltics, te call center, support can be found in languages (here Swedish will also be useful), but clearly this is not the level of positions that will allow a slave visa to be made.
Still, most of the people leaving now in the Baltic states from Russia are people who have a chance to buy real estate / organize business and do not care about finding work in the local market, they are mediocre and their salaries are also enough.
In Estonia, the quota is definitely strong enough, I do not know about the other two, but at their unemployment rate it is unlikely that they easily hand over working visas.

I live in Sweden, so for me the issues of moving to the north of Europe are very interesting 🙂
I would say that your point 4 “open your business” seemed to me the most insane. It seems to me that if you are a foreigner, northern Europe and your business – things are mutually exclusive. But here is point 2 “master’s degree in Sweden” is a very good idea. It’s easy to do, it’s for a long time, you’ll have time to look around, find a job and settle in Sweden. If I were in your place, I would have finished my studies, gradually figuring out how things are in Sweden, then I would immediately submit to the workshop program in all universities and universities of the country, indiscriminately. But first of all, Stockholm University. Then there are many universities in small towns, where they will happily take you. Serve everywhere, something will turn out. And then decide next.

Interested in emigration to Sweden. From the presence: wife 31 years old, speaks good English, works as a director of work with clients in an advertising agency. He does not speak Swedish, but he is ready to master quickly (stubborn), graduated from Moscow State University as a journalist, never worked as a specialty. Husband. He did not finish studying at the Moscow State University at the Higher School of Management. 28 years. Works as a director of editing. In English, medium, in Swedish no way. There are savings of 1.5 million rubles, perhaps a little more.
The emigration options began to be considered recently, in Sweden they stopped for one single reason – they adore the country, they are ready to teach Swedish. It is clear that there are many such people, and they are not needed by anyone.
Question to the experts: are there any options for not immediate emigration (of course), but with the effort to move?

And so in both specialties, where foreigners without a language, knowledge of local characteristics or because of the situation in the labor market are not needed.
