India, Turkey and the United Kingdom are amongst the 10 worst-ranked countries for expats, a recent survey called Expat Insider said.
India is the fifth-worst country in the world for expats, according to a new report released by Inter Nations, a leading network for guidance to expats based around the world.
The countries have been ranked based on the quality of life, ease of settling in, working, family life, and personal finance.
A total of 20,259 expatriates took part in the survey representing 182 nationalities living in 187 countries. The survey takes into account several factors including Ease of Settling In, Personal Finance, Cost of Living, Quality of Living and Working Abroad.
The survey quoted an expat from the United States as saying: “As a female, I don’t feel safe. As a resident, I often feel taken advantage of, at work and outside work.”
Health conditions are also unsatisfactory for expats living in India.
The United Kingdom, Turkey, Brazil, Nigeria, Italy and Kuwait also top off the worst countries for expatriates. Kuwait was ranked the first from the bottom, making it the world’s worst country for expats.
Taiwan was ranked as the top country for expats, followed by Vietnam, Portugal, Mexico and Spain. The US was ranked 47, while Qatar occupied the 18th spot on the list.
Taiwan offers a great quality of life (3rd out of 64 destinations), favourable personal finances (6th), an impressive working life (8th), and good results for ease of settling in (14th).
There is no better place for finances and working abroad than Vietnam as it ranks first in both.
