InterNations is the world’s largest network for people who live and work abroad.
It has 4.6 million members in 420 cities all over the planet and every year since 2014 it has polled its global community on subjects dear to the hearts of all expatriates: Which country is friendliest? Where will I find the best weather, the best working conditions, the best food? Where will my money go the farthest?
This year, InterNations founders Philipp von Palto and Malete Zeeck wrote—in an introduction to their poll—that the methodology of the questionnaire has been revised to show “how expats navigate everyday life abroad, from entering a country to dealing with potential obstacles such as the language barrier. For someone looking for that fresh start in another country, the topics it covers—housing, language, bureaucracy, and digital life—are some of the most important and most urgent concerns, especially during the relocation period. It is also vital information that is often hard to come by if you don’t live in this specific location yet.”
If you are one of those people on the point of moving abroad—but without an exact destination—you may want to download (from InterNations.org) the Expat Insider 2022 survey report. It’s in PDF format and is based on the opinions of 11,970 respondents representing 177 nationalities and living in 181 countries or territories around the world.
