    Looks very similar to the US process. Here you go. Basically, you submit a big form full of personal info, a recent picture, and $127 (or more if you're using a service, expediting, etc.). Then you wait about a month and your passport shows up. It's a little tedious, but not a big deal.

    (Don't forget, though, that a passport is pretty much just an international ID. It doesn't come with a lot of privilege. Even just visiting another country will often require that you obtain a visa from that country's government, authorizing you to enter for a particular purpose, time period, etc.)

    That really depends on the country you want to move to. Rarely will it be possible to simply move to another country and stay indefinitely, though. In many cases, to do more than simply visit, you'll need some sort of sponsorship. That could come from a company that's agreed to hire you, a citizen who's agreed to marry you, or one of a few other things (again, depending on the country). Many countries impose strict annual limits on the number of people who are admitted for work. Those limits may be further broken down according to job function, with preferences given for things like having advanced degrees in high-demand fields. Basically, before admitting you, most governments will try to convince themselves that you won't simply be a burden to the system, that you aren't going to be filling a job that could easily be filled by a citizen, etc.

    Yeah, this. If your goal is just to get away, this seems like the sane approach. Plus, I've watched TV documentaries on Australia (which makes me an authority on the subject! ), so I know you all have some pretty remote areas down there--places where there are just a handful of police officers for an area the size of one of our States. Sounds perfect!

    The passport is the easy bit, just some silly photos that everyone gets picky about shadows and smiles and then some crazy form (take note of the pen colour required) then get a witness to help you complete the process, pay money and wait wait wait.

    The hard thing is working out where you are going to move to and what their process is.

    So where do you want to go?
