The vote for Brexit last year in June had a slim majority with a 52% majority, this has resulted in many warnings by companies about job relocations in London. With Brexit negotiations underway, there has been an increase in applications for passports for the Republic of Ireland. However, InterNations have found through a survey the four best countries for those who want to relocate.
The countries are:
Malta, New Zealand, Canada, and Singapore.
The survey conducted by InterNations with 14300 expats living in 191 countries/territories, representing 174 different nationalities.
The expats had answered 43 different questions which relate to living abroad on a scale from 1 to 7.
The most popular of these countries was Malta, and even though it is in the EU, the expat population is one third British citizens.
21% of the expat population in New Zealand are British. This is because the popularity comes from a great work-life balance that both expats and locals are offered. An expat will be able to expect an average of 42.2 hours for their full-time work week. 95% of the expats currently living in New Zealand have rated the quality of the environment as great.
Affordable healthcare in Canada is a huge deciding factor for British Expats. With a great public healthcare system, as well as it being an English speaking country, this is one of the best places for people to go to after Brexit.
The political stability and peace in Singapore has been highly favoured by British expats. It is also one of the richest countries in the world with a GDP per capita being one of the highest out of all the other countries. Singapore has also reached 100% personal safety satisfaction with expats. Which increases the quality of life for expats.
