The 2021 survey is our broadest look at expat living to date, with expats from a record-breaking 46 countries and regions sharing their views. Regardless of the economic challenges and restrictions presented over the past 18 months, most expats are not planning on moving back home at present, thanks to a prevailing sense of optimism about the year ahead."
The survey focuses on seeing how different destinations ranked for expat living, aspiring, and future outlook and was surveyed with 20,460 expats based in over 46 countries and regions who were questioned in April and May 2021.
