Official United Nations (UN) statistics show that over five million British citizens choose to live elsewhere (and with good reason). And so, if you’re looking towards a life abroad with a little more sunshine than here in the UK, why not try one of the six favourites among Brits? If you’re worried about how your pocket will find the move, we’ve rated these destination favourites from the cheapest to the most-expensive for living costs.
At number one in our list is China. If the food isn’t enough to win you over, how about the great advances happening daily here. A career can quickly take-off in China, it is actually relatively cheap to fly compared to other Asian destinations and above all, it’s great size provides you with lots of room to explore!
Number 2 is Canada. It’s not only rated the second most affordable place to live for Brits but it’s also one of the easiest countries to move to. If you are both skilled and willing to learn then Canada’s amazing landscapes could definitely be an affordable reality for you.
- New Zealand
New Zealand is a great destination for all age ranges. Population remains relatively low here compared to its neighbouring country Australia making owning land particularly cheap and profitable. In fact, the spacious landscape is often what wins people over with this incredible country!
The USA isn’t called the ‘land of opportunity’ for nothing! This greatly diverse country will not likely get you anything for free but it will provide you with 49 other great states for travel right at your doorstep (or rather a plane ride-away.) A green card can take time to be approved here but any state you move to will definitely be worth it.
Australia is undoubtedly a much-loved destination amongst Brits partly for its favourable weather but also for the country’s amazing landscapes. People who move to Australia often report greater health and better living quality. You can get a year-long working visa in advance and if you’re lucky enough to land a skilled job and impress, you could be offered sponsorship to stay for longer.
Dubai is known and favoured greatly for its development as an Emirate over the past 20 or so years. Often called the ‘oil capital’ of the world, the Emirate proves a great destination to move to particularly if you’re on the lookout for a new and fast-growing economy. Unfortunately, you may just have to put a little more cash aside for this one…
