The top destinations for expats are:

  1. Taiwan
  2. Malta
  3. Ecuador
  4. Mexico
  5. New Zealand

New Zealand came seventeenth in the report’s quality of life ranking, fifth in the quality of environment ranking and the ease of settling in ranking.

It also was listed as fourth best country for working abroad.

While both Australians and Kiwis are known for their friendliness, “according to expats, New Zealand does it better.”  21% of expats think it is very easy to make local friends, compared to 14% in Australia, according to the report.
