Working overseas is both an alluring and overwhelming prospect for many people. The thought of living in another country is definitely exciting but it raises some important points to consider. The process of finding a job, securing a visa, and affording the necessary expenses of everyday life can be enough to deter even the most adventurous. Luckily, it is not always as complicated as it seems. There are countries where you don’t have to sacrifice standard of living even with a lower salary. The following destinations were picked based on the following criteria: low cost of living, ease of the visa process, and potential for job prospects. While you may not get rich in some of the picks below, you will certainly gain priceless skills and experiences. 1. Ecuador Ecuador Image Photo by: Emma Kilcup, Living and Learning International Alum South America is full of cheap countries to live and work but Ecuador is among the best. Geographically diverse, Ecuador is home to the Galapagos Islands, the Andes Mountains, and part of the Amazon rainforest. While many are drawn to Ecuador for tourism, it is also a great choice for those hoping to move and work abroad. In Quito, one-bedroom apartments in the city center can be found for as low as $300 a month. This paired with affordable food and transportation costs makes life in the capital attainable. Guayaquil, Quito, Vilcabamba, and Loja are also favored among expats making the move to Ecuador. A shared three-bedroom apartment in Cuenca could cost you as low as $206. Average monthly local salary: $472 Average monthly rent for one-bedroom in city center: $392 Average monthly rent for shared apartment in city center: $227 Cost of meal in inexpensive restaurant: $3 Cost of living in Quito is 70% cheaper than New York, NY 2. South Korea Americans benefit from working holiday visa agreements with six countries: Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Canada, Ireland, and South Korea. Of these choices, South Korea is the most affordable even when considering the capital city Seoul. On this special visa, U.S. citizens who are recent graduates between the ages of 18-30 can work and travel in the country for up to 18 months. Don’t meet the criteria for the working holiday program? South Korea is also a popular destination for those wishing to teach English overseas and for good reason. English teachers there enjoy a high salary and employment packages that usually include paid accommodation and flight reimbursement. As if this wasn’t attractive enough, most employers also tend to take care of your visa for you. Jobs can be found in Seoul as well as smaller cities and rural locations. Of course, your money will go farther outside of major metropolitan areas though you can live well in the big city on teacher’s wages. Outside of Seoul, popular cities for working professionals include Busan, Incheon, and Daegu. Average monthly local salary: $2,390 Average monthly rent for one-bedroom in city center: $585 Average monthly rent for shared apartment in city center: $504 Cost of meal in inexpensive restaurant: $6 Cost of living in Seoul is 66% cheaper than New York, NY 3. China China is huge so it goes without saying that there is something for nearly everyone. Whether you choose a bustling city or secluded village, the cost of living is more than manageable across the board. In Beijing, it is estimated that food shopping costs around $140 a month for a single person eating a local diet. Eating out in the capital doesn’t have to be a treat either, with a meal at an inexpensive restaurant costing around $5. Conversely, a smaller city like Harbin carries a lighter price tag for food with your monthly shop averaging around $119 and a cheap restaurant meal offered for $3. If life in Beijing or Shanghai isn’t quite your speed, Guangzhou, Tianjin, and Chengdu are popular cities that don’t spare any amenities. Average monthly local salary: $1,035 Average monthly rent for one-bedroom in city center: $496 Average monthly rent for shared apartment in city center: $359 Cost of meal in inexpensive restaurant: $3 Cost of living in Beijing is 57% cheaper than New York, NY 4. Portugal Portugal Image Photo by: Sierra Whitney , Travel for Teens Alum Tucked away on the Iberian Peninsula, Portugal is often overshadowed by its neighbor Spain. But just because its culture isn’t as pervasive doesn’t mean it doesn’t have a lot to offer. Portugal boasts a relaxed pace of life, gorgeous weather, and a cost of living that’s among Western Europe’s cheapest. With the whole of the western part of the country on the coast, you’ll have no shortage of fresh fish and seafood. Produce is cheap and often locally grown. As far as capital cities go, Lisbon is very affordable but Porto and Faro are among the alternatives where you can live comfortably on less than 1000 euros a month. Average monthly local salary: $1,011 Average monthly rent for one-bedroom in city center: $705 Average monthly rent for shared apartment in city center: $400 Cost of meal in inexpensive restaurant: $9 Cost of living in Lisbon is 57% cheaper than New York, NY 5. Georgia Georgia is becoming an increasingly popular home away from home for expats due to its friendly visa process. Often confused with the US state of the same name, this eastern European country is beginning to put itself on the map as a cheap and friendly country for work abroad. Georgian food and wine are underrated and Georgians take eating and drinking quite seriously. Foodies will find no better destination for rich dishes that can also be classified as cheap eats. In terms of entertainment and daily life, expats will find the prices as friendly as the people. In the capital, Tbilisi, a monthly travel pass will cost you a mere $10 and a trip to the movies costs less than a fiver. Foreigners looking to relocate to Georgia also find Kutaisi and Batumi quite easy on the wallet. Average monthly local salary: $297 Average monthly rent for one-bedroom in city center: $263 Average monthly rent for shared apartment in city center: $181 Cost of meal in inexpensive restaurant: $5 Cost of living in Tbilisi is 80% cheaper than New York, NY Don't forget to visit my link for full details
