Mexico is the easiest and lowest cost residency visa period. Mexico also the most popular country with about 10 times more visa issued to US citizens than any other.
New Zealand wants to bring in young people. If you’re between the ages of 18 and 30, it’s very easy to get a residency visa in New Zealand.
Bali is the home of many digital nomads, Bali offers the most laid back lifestyle on this list. Combine this with a low cost of living, decent internet, and one of the easiest visas, and you see why Bali is a top pick, especially for tech-savvy hipsters.
Indonesia doesn’t have an easy path to citizenship like Panama, but it does have a very easy “social visa.” This residency visa is renewable for up to 6 months. To extend, you’ll fly to the embassy in Singapore (about $100 for the flight) and return in 3 days with another 6-month visa.
Ireland offers a working holiday program for recent graduates and grants a stay of up to one year as well as working privileges. Applications are sent to the Irish Consulate in the U.S. for consideration.
Upon entering the country, you must register with immigration for an Irish Residence Permit which costs $369.
Although as a retiree, you won’t be able to get Vietnamese residency, staying long-term is easy. U.S. citizens are now issued one-year, multiple-entry visas, which allow you to remain in the country for up to 90 days at a time. At the end of 90 days, you’ll need to leave the country and re-enter, but there is no minimum period of time that you’ll need to be away before you can come back.

Whatever answers you get here, and whatever you decide, check with official government websites in your selected country. Never travel in the hope of legal residency without checking - you might get refused by immigration officials at the airport, and have to go home on the next flight.

Generally this requires advanced STEM degrees / experience, but varies.
