The country is not only visually stunning, but it also exemplifies solid government, has a strong, prosperous economy, and has a first-rate universal healthcare system.

It’s a unique nation that can finish first in the HSBC expat poll and third in the world happiness rankings released in 2020 and 2021, respectively, by Yale University and the Environmental Performance Index.

Moreover, 92% of expats in Switzerland are assured that their chosen country will remain stable over the following 12 months, which eases the stress of making fresh plans. To do some exploring, you could cross the border and go to France, Germany, and Italy.

If you’re a young adult looking to extend your horizons on a life-changing journey and intend to finance it with side jobs along the way, New Zealand might be the perfect place for you. 

There is no language barrier in New Zealand for English speakers. In addition, Kiwis are generally friendly, which makes it very easy for most foreigners to integrate into New Zealand culture.

This island nation, which is known for its beautiful scenery and political stability, has a high level of racial, gender, and LGBT equality, as well as a progressive administration that looks out for its people.

90% of expats in New Zealand would suggest their new home for its quality of life, which is not surprising given that it is the sixth-most liberal nation in the world and the ninth-best for women.

According to HSBC’s 2021 Expat Explorer survey, expats in New Zealand are also more optimistic about the future than those in any other country, which makes sense given all of these benefits.

The United Nations estimates that over 286,000 British nationals presently reside in New Zealand, and it’s easy to understand why.

The second-happiest nation in the world provides its citizens with unparalleled access to justice, freedom of speech, and political rights, as well as a fantastic work environment.

With an Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) work and employment score of 7.54/10, Denmark has been named the best country for expats to work in.

Denmark not only has the finest workplace perks, but it also has an exceptional combination of high average earnings, short working hours, protected worker rights, and at least 25 days of yearly leave.

Working late is explicitly discouraged, and all workers are entitled to at least five weeks of paid vacation each year.

According to the Danish government, workers often take the last two weeks of July off, allowing them to enjoy a stress-free summer vacation.

Denmark also has the lowest level of corruption in the world, so despite paying higher taxes than most, its citizens are content to contribute because they see the benefits. 

Free universal healthcare, a free university education (together with a stipend to cover living expenses), subsidised childcare, and free care for the elderly are all benefits they can take advantage of.

Norway once ranked as the happiest country in the world and still ranking well in Condé Nast’s top 10, is famous for its fjords and fishing.

It makes sense that Norway, the most liberal nation on Earth, leads the trio of Scandinavian nations making into this year’s list, as it is the best at meeting the demands of its citizens.

According to the 2021 Social Progress Index, Norway offers an unrivalled extent of personal freedom, inclusivity, and opportunity.

In Norway, magnificent fjords can be explored, the Northern Lights can be marvelled at, and you can even view polar bears in the wild while taking advantage of the country’s eco-friendly culture, which sees Norway obtaining 97% of its electricity from renewable sources.

Additionally, even though it’s never simple to make friends right away in a foreign country, the fact that you’ll be joining 20,000 other British expats should make it a bit smoother.
