It has become a culture for every, or I should say “concerned Nigerian” now or simply “Nigerian” because as a Nigerian in these awalokan times, you should naturally be concerned in this economy. So, let me start again by choosing the right words or terms. It has become a culture for every Nigerian to monitor daily the exchange rate, especially the US Dollar. As the days go by, the standard of living is becoming more expensive, which is why we are leaving the country. Someone once said that the best time to japa was yesterday, and as funny as it may sound, it is true. 


Immigration Policy Affecting Japa Plans

Immigration will become complex over time, not just because of financial implications. It is also due to the adoption and implementation of policies by these countries of choice to stiffen immigration. For example, if you get a study permit to embark on a graduate certificate program in any school in Canada in 2023, you will be entitled to a post-graduate work permit. Also, your spouse will be eligible for a Spousal Open Work Permit. But as of January 2024, that changed, along with other new policies making it harder for international students. Of course, this does not stop you from applying to study in Canada! But you have to ensure you are doing it the right way. This is why Japa Partners is here for you. 

So, what are we driving at here? All we are saying is if you do have genuine plans to japa, now is the best time to apply. The longer you wait, the more complex it gets. With the Naira continuously falling, like a baby learning to walk, it will also become more expensive to Japa. If you need about N30 – N40 Million to move to any of the big four (4) countries today, it is impossible to predict what you will need in the coming months.

Not to say the Naira will not learn how to walk again, but the longer you wait, the steeper the hill becomes. Economic uncertainties, policy changes, and unforeseen challenges may further complicate your plans. Seize the opportunity now, and secure your future in a more stable environment. Remember, timing is crucial, and the window of opportunity may not stay open indefinitely. Act now, and pave the way for a smoother transition to a brighter future.


If you are confused or scared about the new policies of the big four (4) countries, especially the UK, USA, Canada and Australia, you can reach out to us for other options, and we will be here to guide you all the way through. You can also consider countries in the EU, where diverse opportunities await. European nations offer a range of possibilities for education, work, and a fulfilling life. Whatever you need, there are options for you. Our team is well-versed in the immigration processes of various EU countries. We can also help you navigate through them as alternatives. Don’t let uncertainty hold you back; remember, THE BEST TIME TO JAPA IS NOW!
