Here you can find a list with variety of different reasons that we received from people from different countries. You can find here various reasons that motivated them or have played a roll on their decision to leave their country.
Our list is not a complete list of all countries and of course doesn't include all the reasons that exist. We are constantly updating the list, so if you see that the reasons, that motivated you are not included, let us know. We will be more than happy to add it.
You will see that the majority of the reasons is from US. It is not because the US has the most problems from all the countries, but because we have worked, and we are working with a lot of American expats.
People from each country have their specific reasons to leave. Many times it is not just one reason, but the number of different reasons.
Some people moved several times and lived in various countries, before they finally found the right country for them.
Each person is different and each person has different needs and requirements.
Not every country is a perfect fit for everybody.

You have to visit the country from a resident's perspective, rather than as a tourist.
LIFE IS SHORT
A lot of people realized that life is short. It is happening especially, when a major event is taking place in somebody's life (illness, divorce, lost of a loved one, lost of friend, etc.)
Many people, who are working for a long period of time on their professional careers or many years in corporate environment, discover that they should make a big change in their life and start to live to their fullest and experience different things in life.
NEVER TRAVELED OUT OF COUNTRY
A lot of people never traveled out of country, sometimes even, state or county.
The reasons can vary. Sometimes the reason could be economic (not enough money), travel is expensive, but sometimes it is just because of limited opportunities, career, type of work, limited vacation days, fear, language barrier, no existence of foreigner friends, limited information, limited education about geography and other countries, etc.
Example: Only 42% of the Americans owns a passport.
A lot of people realized when they travel abroad for the first time, that there is a whole new world outside their country. The information about other countries is very limited and the news are publishing usually only bad news.
