3 Legit Ways You Can Japa

April 22, 2021

We saw this on Twitter the other day:

After doing a weird mix of laughing and crying because she’s not wrong, we decided to do some research and make a list of ways one can japa. You know, for those who need it. (Everyone at this point.)

1) Marriage

First step: Find someone who’s a citizen of the country you want to immigrate to and love the hell out of them. If they love you back, get married. Why? Because being the spouse of a citizen of a country is the easiest way to immigrate to that country.

2) Work

Work Permit Visa..

Work visas are valid for only one year. The key here is to get this visa (which you can only get when you get a job in the country you want to migrate to), and then, while you’re there, do every legal thing you can to turn it into a permanent one. May the odds be in your favour.

3) School

This one is a 3 for 1 combo: You get another degree, get to experience what education is like in a sane environment, AND you can slowly transition into living there permanently if you get a job immediately after schooling.

If you need help with that third option, you’re in luck! INTO — an international study specialist organisation that helps students study and/or start careers in the US — is hosting an Open Doors Week event for Fall 2021 and future programs.

The event is to show potential students how to go about studying and eventually starting a career in the US. INTO works with their 20+ partner universities to create programs designed for international students. The virtual event will kick off in Nigeria/Cameroon 26th April to 2nd May, 2 pm to 7 am (+1: Next day) and in Ghana 26th April to 2nd May, 1 pm to 6 am (+1: Next day).
