If you’re thinking about moving abroad but are risk averse, the results of a new survey suggest putting Singapore at the top of your destinations shortlist.
Because for the second year in a row, Singapore has been named the best destination in Explorer survey, which aims to shed light on the countries that offer the best career opportunities and quality of life for foreigners looking to move abroad.
The city-state is particularly promising for professionals looking to advance their career and add more income to their pocketbooks, as 62 percent of people living in Singapore agreed it’s a good place to live peacefully.
The same proportion — about three in five — said they saw their earnings rise after moving to Singapore.
While the average income among expats globally is US$97,000 expats in Singapore average US$139,000.
What’s more, nearly a quarter (23 percent) earn more than US$200,000.
Likewise, expats living in Singapore are particularly happy with the quality of education as three-quarters deemed it better than the education system back home — the highest proportion in the world.
And 66 percent said that their quality of life improved after moving to Singapore compared to their lives at home, compared to the global average of 52 percent.
Rounding out the top five spots on the list is New Zealand, Canada, Czech Republic, and Switzerland.
Overall, the top 10 list is dominated by countries in Europe. The US is ranked 30th.
While Singapore took the overall title, other countries were singled out for topping specific categories.
In the category of ‘experience’ for instance, New Zealand topped the charts. Expats praised the country’s environment for its air and water quality and agreed that integration in the country is largely a smooth process.
