InterNations is the world’s largest community of expats with approximately 5 million participants.

To determine the value of cities for relocation, aspects such as “Ease of Adaptation”, “Quality of Life”, “Financial Situation”, “Housing”, “Healthcare” and “Recreational Opportunities” were considered.

  • Ras Al Khaimah (UAE)
