To Immigrants. By Immigrants.
It all started when I was a teenager living in Brazil and dreaming about moving overseas. Somewhere safe, fair and more developed. Every free time I had, I would research about immigration options to several countries. I finally set the goal to work and live in Australia one day. Fast forward to November 2016, after migrating temporarily to the USA, Chile and the UK, and I've obtained my Australian Permanent Residency Visa.
I've gone through a lot of immigration bureaucracy with my visa applications over the years, and I've also helped other people trying to emigrate. By doing that, I was able to identify a few best practices and the most common errors people make when trying to obtain a work visa somewhere new.
I dream about a world with open borders. It's not fair that the physical location an individual was born can be a limiting factor in how much they can prosper in life. As Bill Gates wrote: "Where you are born is more predictive of your future than any other factor".
Unlocking migration for more people would instantly make the world richer. But it's not just an economic argument; it's a moral one.
