New Zealand Beloved by Expats in HSBC Ranking

New Zealand has been ranked as the runner-up in global financial services company HSBC’s Expat Explorer Survey, in which researchers asked a range of questions to 27,000 expats from 190 different countries and territories, as reported in Condé Nast Traveller.

The survey questions were separated into three overarching categories—Family, Experience, and Economics.

In the “Experience” section of the survey, which involved questions about the expat’s quality of day-to-day life, how easily they’ve integrated into society and the ease of finding accommodation and getting settled, New Zealand took the number one spot.

“Respondents report an easy-going, friendly environment, with the added benefit that from mountaineering to kayaking, there’s just so much to see and do,” according to Condé Nast Traveller.
