Travelling around the world must come at a price.

Travelling around the world must come at a price.

Research from IXPVisa.com, a visa application help website in the UK, revealed that 35 per cent of Brits said that they would take an ‘unskilled job’ in another country to secure a visa.

And only 20 per cent of those surveyed said they would only move abroad if it was a ‘career step up’. Obviously people will do anything for a bit of sun. But with the weather heading the way it is at the moment who can blame them?!

The study looked at the main responses from people who were open to changing their career path, and IXPVisa.com asked them why they would be willing to take a backwards step career-wise. There were ranges or responses, from 41 per cent who said that they would benefit from gaining life experience abroad which would make it worthwhile, to 33 per cent who explained that the lifestyles of those who live abroad were what appealed to them, and 24 per cent who optimistically said that life wasn’t all about career progression.

The respondents were asked whether they would be willing to take an unskilled job in order to experience living and working abroad, to which 35 per cent said that they would if it was necessary to do so in order to secure a visa. 

Maybe it's a personal preference but surely it would seem a waste if you were to start from the bottom of the career ladder again after already working your way up? You can be the judge of that.
