UAE lands 18th best destination for expats

The UAE ranked 18th out of 59 destinations in the world for expatriates to work and live abroad, according to a new survey by global network InterNations.

The list was dominated by Asian and South American countries, with Taiwan leading the ranking for the third year in a row followed by Mexico, Costa Rica, Malaysia and Portugal, according to the Expat Insider 2021 study published on Tuesday. The bottom cities for expats included Kuwait, Italy and South Africa.

The main indices measured in the seventh edition of the survey of more than 12,000 expatriates included quality of life, ease of settling in, working abroad, personal finance, and cost of living.

Respondents also discussed how the Covid-19 pandemic had impacted their life abroad, but these responses did not influence the overall ranking, the report said.
