Viet Nam ranks 11th among the most popular destinations for expatriates

Wednesday, 07 September 2016
Viet Nam ranks eleventh out 67 countries and territories around world in the list of the best places to live abroad in the third annual InterNations Expat Insider 2016 survey.
This is big progress for Viet Nam as the country only ranked 35th in last year's survey.
 
In 2016, the top ten were Chinese Taipei, Malta, Ecuador, Mexico, New Zealand, Costa Rica, Australia, Austria, Luxembourg, and the Czech Republic.
 
Chinese Taipei tops the list this year, beating last year’s favourites Malta, Ecuador and Mexico. In addition to the best overall rating, the East Asian island also holds first place for personal finance and quality of life, and second place for its working conditions.
 
An impressive 85% of expats are satisfied with their financial situation, compared to a global average of 64% saying the same. An ever higher percentage of expats in Chinese Taipei praise the quality and affordability of the local healthcare system, at 94 and 95% respectively.
 
Malta, ranking second this year, has jumped from 42nd to 6th position for personal finances, the country’s first position worldwide for climate and weather, as well as the highly rated availability of leisure options; expats can find a wide range of diversions right at their doorstep.
 
After ranking first for two years, Ecuador has been dethroned by career boosters Taiwan and Malta. The country has dropped from a strong 7th rank to a mediocre 30th position in the Working Abroad Index, mainly due to heavy losses in the Job Security subcategory, where it comes in 50th place.
 
For its annual Expat Insider survey, InterNations asked about 14,300 expatriates representing 174 nationalities and living in 191 countries or territories to rate and provide information on various aspects of expat life, as well as their gender, age, and nationality.
 
Participants were asked to rate 43 different aspects of life abroad on a scale of one to seven. The rating process emphasised the respondents’ personal satisfaction with these aspects and considered both emotional topics as well as more factual aspects with equal weight.
