The UAE is the fourth-best country in the world for expatriates looking to work abroad, according to newly released data from HSBC’s Expat Explorer Survey.
According to the survey, nearly three-quarters of expats working in the UAE earn more than they could in their home country.
The UAE has been ranked the fourth best place to work in the world, marking its third consecutive year in the top five, and behind only Germany, Bahrain and the UK.

Among the primary reasons expats highlighted the UAE as one of the top career-destinations were for the benefits packages offered by employers (ranked first) and its earnings prospects (ranked third).
Marwan Hadi, head of Retail Banking and Wealth Management, UAE, HSBC, said in a statement on Tuesday: “The UAE once again emerges as the destination of choice for ambitious globetrotters looking to expand their careers in 2019.
