I'm new and I'm sorry if this question doesn't belong to this stackexchange.
I happen to be born in a country that is not safe for me personally. And I'm considering moving to Europe. I still didn't decide on the exact country, but my goal is to be able to leave my original country as soon as possible and never go back (legally, of course).
I work from the internet and I can afford to live in low-cost small towns/cities in Europe (around €1000 per month). So I think there are two ways to achieve my goal:
- Acquire a short temporary visa just to get there and then apply for asylum. I believe my asylum application has sufficient reasons to be accepted.
- Apply for temporary/long-term residency and stay there until acquiring permanent residency.
If one method fails, I would try the other one. But I am seeking advice on which method is better (assuming both can succeed) and the pros and cons of each.
(Any other ideas related to my goal are quite welcome.)
Note 1: I am a non-EU citizen.
