At least four cities in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi, have been rated among the 20 best cities in the world for expatriates to live and work in.
InterNations, an expatriate community of 2.8 million people, released on Tuesday the latest ranking of top cities for foreign workers.
The ranking is based on a poll of nearly 13,000 people who were asked about places they’re happy with, especially when it comes to housing rents, quality of life and job security. The findings also highlight which places where expats find the locals very friendly, or which destinations are easy to get settled in.
Manama in Bahrain took the first place in the overall ranking of 51 cities, with Muscat, Abu Dhabi and Dubai following behind in the 12th, 15th and 17th positions, respectively. These cities were all found to have particularly friendly local residents.
|Overall City Ranking||15||45||17||50||1||12||48|
|Quality of Urban Living Index||22||43||20||47||35||31||46|
|Getting Settled Index||13||31||8||45||2||3||50|
|Urban Work Life Index||33||46||39||51||12||36||43|
