Cheap Countries That You Should Migrate To

Introduction.

Are you an entrepreneur, or digital nomad seeking a tax haven, and low-cost country to move to? Then, I recommend you read this article till the end.

 

I often tell people who would love to live abroad to calculate the cost of living expenses before deciding to migrate to any country of their choice.

These calculations should cover rent, utility, insurance and income taxes to be sure you are not getting your pocket enslaved in the hands of the government, you don’t want to work so hard to keep paying bills and have nothing else to save.

What are Low-cost(Cheap) Countries?

Low-cost(cheap countries) are developed nations across the nation with a moderately low cost of living.

The amount needed to cover basics like housing, groceries, taxes, and healthcare is way lower when compared to other countries across the globe.

Most times, all you need to have access to the basics are between $500 – $1200 at most for a single person.

Why should you Migrate To Cheap Countries?

Most people expect living abroad to cost a fortune, and that is becoming true if you pick expensive countries, your hard-earned money might not get you that far.

But if you avoid popular, super expensive destinations, like USA or Australia, and stick to some of the cheapest countries in which to live and work, you might be surprised how well you can live on a moderate income and save up the most.

1. Pay Little In Taxes.

Every taxpayer I know wants to pay fewer taxes. Taxes are something anyone seeking to save money should avoid in a new destination.

I am not asking you to evade taxes, or else you may be prosecuted, but you should pay less in taxes to be able to save more.

Taxes are a luxury in cheap countries, you pay little in taxes, and if you happen to earn in foreign currencies, then you might just be middle class.

Take, for example, a country like Russia, the Rubble is significantly as weak to the dollar as it might be, making it easy for people earning in dollars to be on top of the economy.

2. Pay Little for More (Housing, Electricity, Water and Utilities).

Expenses should be another onlooker for those seeking to migrate to any cheap country of their choice.

Having to spend too much on utilities such as housing, Electricity can be a major turn-off and may prevent you from saving as much as possible. Also, Make sure that expenses on utilities do not gulp off your savings.

One thing I love about being in cheap countries is that you don’t get to pay so much in utilities, you don’t get to pay as much as $350 -$500 for a condo apartment.

3. Easy To Start a Business.

Starting a business in a low-cost country is easier as capital is not seen as a barrier. If you are someone who can identify and solve problems, then you might just be on your way to building a branded business in a low-cost country, paying very little in taxes.

4. You get to save more.

One reason why you should migrate to a cheap country is the fact that you get to save a little bit more than you used to.

Let’s assume you are a digital nomad and you earn more than $5,000 from your online business.

In a low-cost country like Russia, Eastern Europe and Southern Africa, you get to spend nothing less than $1,000 every month, putting you ahead with more than $4,000 in savings each month.

Comparing this to living in High-standard countries like the US, and Canada you get to spend over $4,000 depending on your location putting your deficit on your savings.

Low-cost Countries That Anyone can Migrate To.

Most people expect long-term travel or living abroad to cost a fortune, and sure, if you pick expensive countries, your hard-earned money might not get you that far.

But if you avoid popular, super expensive destinations in the west and stick to some of the cheapest countries in which to live and work, you might be surprised how well you can live on a moderate salary.

1. Russia.
