Americans planning to move from the United States into other countries will need to fulfill a set of varying requirements per country. But these five are the most common requirements immigration agencies would ask from applicants for citizenship to Europe, Asia and even the Middle East

Always have a birth certificate copy. According to the EU Immigration Portal, anyone applying for reunification with their family, or as a worker, professional, or a student migrating to most European countries should have proof of their origin. Birth certificates contain one birth date, nation where the citizen was born and proof of existence.

Visas would be required for most foreigners outside the EU. Only EU member countries need not apply for any visa to pass through, obtain residence and properties in the European Union, Asia or Middle East. Most local embassies allow visa applications from interested Americans and an approval may take somewhere between 15 to 30 days for a working or student visa.

After earning a working visa, Americans who wish to migrate can then apply for residency in their country of choice. Each country in the world has a set limit to the number of years one lives as a foreign national in the country. In Britain, workers can apply for permanent residency only after 5 years. In some Asian countries such as Singapore, permanent residency requires a few more caveats but only need six months working period as a minimum to obtain residency.

Patience is also needed. Immigration agents would question certain items in your forms. This is a measure to ensure they are speaking directly with the actual document representative. Rev's blog has a set of questions commonly asked during immigration interviews and ways to answer them.

Aside from patience for the results, Americans applying for immigration must condition themselves for processing immense paperwork beforehand. In Austria, American applicants may need to conform with an Integration Agreement and may find it more difficult to handle a 15-year permanent residency to become eligible for citizenship application. In Japan, applicants need to have lived in the country but will need to have applicants renounce their citizenship in other countries.
