Hi,

We are planning to immigrate next year to expand our company.  We still need to make a decision whether it would be to Austria or Germany and we are trying to do as much research as possible.  Please could we get some input based on the following criteria:

  • Safety and security (crime vs civil unrest vs threat of war)
  • Healthcare
  • Quality of public schooling system
    • Also, where can we get a list of public schools to get in contact with them please
  • Ease of doing business (language/cultural barriers)
  • Transportation (quality and safety of public transport & cost of private transport)
  • Cleanliness / environment
  • Cost of living vs South Africa

Any input you can offer will be highly appreciated!
