6 Best Countries to Migrate for Sri Lankans

We all dream of starting a new life in a new land. Not all may see that dream come true, but if you have the right pathway stretched in front of you, the chances are much likely.

Migration is not simple. It’s a total lifestyle change where you will switch careers, arrive in a land of new culture and language and if you are married and with a family, you should always be keen on your decision.

We put up a list of 6 best countries to Migrate for Sri Lankan citizens. Let’s take a read.

1. Canada


Canada topped our list for the best place to migrate for Sri Lankans in 2021. Home to 37 million people, Canada is the second largest country in the world by size. They have a fairly smooth governance and economy, a number of opportunities for skilled workers, and a safe place for immigrants.

Although Canada is a Western Country, you can find quite a number of Sri Lankan communities settled there already, so fitting in would be the least of your worries.

2. Norway


Norway has a population of around 5 million people and is known as the happiest country in the world! Who wouldn’t want to migrate here?? Norway offers many opportunities for IT, construction and healthcare personnel. Additionally, Living standards are quite admirable.

However applying for Norwegian migration can get a little complex, but with the right qualifications and documentation, you’d be able to get it granted.

3. Malaysia


With a population of 31 million people, Malaysia is one of Asia’s most trending Migration destinations. The country is developing at a staggering rate and offers a number of opportunities in all aspects for skilled workers looking to migrate and invest.

Plus, Malaysia is renowned for their health care, education, living standards and cultural similarities they share with Sri Lanka.

4. New Zealand


New Zealand has a population of less than 5 million people and has a low unemployment rate as well. As it’s an English speaking country, language isn’t a barrier at all.

Additionally, with high quality living standards, education and job opportunities, skilled workers can easily find jobs here.

It would take 5 years to be a Kiwi, but once you are, you can easily travel to Australia.

5. Germany


With its sturdy Economy, Germany is one of Europe’s strongest countries and the best to Migrate if you plan to stay there for quite a long time. However the catch is learning the German language to communicate fluently.

Germany is currently looking for skilled workers such as Developers, Engineers, IT Professionals, Health and Social Workers etc.

6. Sweden


Sweden has a population of 10 million people and is one of the most harmonious counties to live in (Apart from Norway). Sweden has many job opportunities, ranging from caregivers to sales representatives and software developers. Skilled laborers have a higher chance of finding decent work in Sweden, especially with a Bachelors’ Degree.

If you want to be a citizen of Sweden, you’ll have to work there for 5 years.
