Top 6 countries for expats to consider
Every now and then, one can’t help but feel tired and bored of the same daily routine we are all trapped in. Same work, same lunch place, same street, same neighbourhood so on and so forth. Very often we would think about a getaway or a break from the routine would be the answer, but only to come back to the same reality.
Hence, it is no surprise that many would actually consider moving abroad to work and live in. A change in the environment and people is good, but the ultimate question is where? While taking the dive to move abroad and start a new life is big, choosing where would actually be a bigger dive. There are just too much to consider before deciding where to start the next chapter of your life. Job opportunities, remuneration packages, quality of life and safety just to name a few.Thanks to HSBC, things have been made simpler, they have with the annual Expat Explorer survey.
The survey ranks the best countries to live in based on various criteria such as economics, career opportunity and quality of life. Here we have chosen some of the best countries to work in based overall.
United Arab Emirates
The UAE offers some of the higher paid jobs for expats. While the country does provide a good working and living environment, do bear in mind that this is an Islamic country after all. There are much rules to follow, and don’t forget the language barrier too.
The country down under comes up at 11 for this survey. Assuring great quality of life, Australia excels in food, weather and other aspects. However, public transportation in this country is quite a pain.
With strong economics, stabil political system and a low crime rate, Germany come up as one of the top 10 choices of expats worldwide. However those in the country does have to tackle with the high cost of living there.
Despite high cost of living, Bahrain does provide jobs with high pay and great benefits. The locals are more accepting or welcoming towards expats into their society.
New Zealand’s low crime rate and being one of the best place for children upbringing makes it one of the ideal destinations for expats with family. With that said, however, New Zealand ranks pretty low for expat’s disposable income.
Quoted as one of the cleanest and safest cities in the world by HSBC, Singapore does indeed offer the higher quality of life with it’s good local economy. These 2 reasons alone, is enough to make Singapore the ideal destination for expats.
