We’d like to share with you a detailed picture of life abroad across all continents: why people relocate, what their daily life is like, and how satisfied they are.

Ecuador and Mexico topped the overall list, with Malta placing third. Singapore and Luxembourg make up the top five list.

Expat Insider is among the biggest surveys worldwide to inquire into the living situation and happiness of expatriates. After the success of the 2014 edition, we have again asked 14,000 respondents from 195 countries and overseas territories a range of questions on life abroad.

Malta: Small in Size, Big in Popularity

Malta scores highest in the Working Abroad Index, mostly due to the high job satisfaction among survey respondents. Many of them are also generally happy with their career prospects (67%), work-life balance (67%) and working hours (69%). At the same time, though, 46% say that their income is now lower than it used to be back home and 38% fall into the lowest income brackets of 25,000 USD and below. Malta is also popular for its ease of settling in and makes it to fourth place in the respective index. In fact, 73% find it easy to make new friends there, and 77% feel right at home. Still, according to 8% of respondents, the friendliness towards foreign residents could be better.

Although only 17% find the local language easy to learn, 88% disagree that life is difficult without speaking it. This is probably due to the fact that Malta, as a former British colony, still uses English, alongside Maltese, as one of its official languages. As 40% of survey respondents in Malta are British, “overcoming” the language barrier is not an issue for them.

Unfortunately, the country scores rather poorly in the Travel & Transport subcategory, landing only on 39th place. Expats seem to be particularly dissatisfied with the transport infrastructure (36%). On the other hand, they are quite happy with the socializing and leisure options (79%), the quality of healthcare (80%), and the climate and weather (97%).

Malta only makes it to 42nd place in the Personal Finance Index, though, with 62% saying they are overall happy with their financial situation.

No Language Woes in Malta

Malta comes in second place among the women surveyed. One-third of women are completely satisfied with their work-life balance (global average for men and women: 17%). Outside of work, they appreciate Malta for both the quality and affordability of its medical care (fourth and fifth global rank among women).

Women also find it easy to settle in to their life in Malta. Eight in ten generally feel at home in Maltese culture and 27% think it is very easy to make local friends. They also say Malta is the easiest country to live in without speaking the local language, with 77% in complete agreement.

The best are moving away! Italian Expats Abroad, Multilingual and Educated – I migliori se ne vanno? Italian Expats, multilingue e istruiti

Expats from Italy move abroad for practical reasons, rarely intending to abandon their home country forever.

To move to Malta, MALTAway is your way

Probably due to current subpar economic conditions in their home country, Italian expats’ main motivation for relocation is often the improved working opportunities other countries can offer. Over half (53%) mention the economy and/or labor market as an important factor for their decision to live in another country and the overall single most important reason for leaving Italy is finding a new job abroad, as listed by 19% of Italian respondents. As such, typical expat types among Italians are the Foreign Assignee (21%) and Career Expat (16%).

Germany (hosting 17%) and Switzerland (10%) are the most favored countries of the Italian expats, likely because of the proximity to the motherland. The short distance to home is indeed an attribute Italians appreciate, with 28% mentioning it as an issue that was on their mind when considering moving abroad.

Speaking Proficiently

Regardless of where expat life takes them, Italians seem to be fairly talented when it comes to languages. Close to half (46%) state they speak four or more languages including their mother tongue(s). Globally only 30% of the expats are so accomplished. Italians also seem to have a good command of the local language in their respective host country: 58% boast being able to speak their host country’s language fairly or even very well, while only 48% of all survey participants say the same. Improving language skills also serves as a motivation to move abroad: 13% of Italian expats mention it as one reason for their relocation.

Academic Accomplishments

As mentioned, Italians often travel abroad driven by better working opportunities. Highly educated – two-thirds have a post-graduate degree such as a Master’s degree or PhD – Italian expats nevertheless tend to be conventional employees and managers (63% vs. the global 47%) rather than, for example, researchers (6%), freelancers (5%), or entrepreneurs (6%).

Overall, the effort of moving abroad is rewarded in the form of higher incomes: 73% say they currently earn more than they would back home and 35% even go so far as to say their income is now a lot higher. In general, Italian expats also have slightly higher incomes than the worldwide average: 59% of the Italians say their annual household income is higher than 50,000 USD, compared to 51% among the entire survey population.

Love across Borders

Italian expats happen to be single more often than the global average would suggest (46% vs. a worldwide 38%). Of those who do have a partner, 16% are in a long-distance relationship with their better half residing in another country.

On the other hand, only two in five Italians in a relationship have a partner who is also Italian. In 28% of the cases the partner is neither from the home country nor the current country of residence.

Attending Expat Activities

Expats from Italy have a tendency to keep company mostly with other expats. Almost half (48%) say their acquaintances consist mainly of fellow internationals; around the globe only 34% say the same. When asked about the origin of their expat friends, 21% say they are mostly from Italy, too. On the other hand, close to one-third (32%) has expat friends from a third country with a different culture and no shared language.

Being work-oriented, Italian expats most commonly meet new people through their jobs: two-thirds of them mention work as a place to socialize, followed by those who find friends through other friends (55%). Italians also frequently attend expat events, with 45% saying these are a good place to make new friends.

16 Things to Consider When Retiring Abroad….or why MALTA is a the top destination

16 Things to Consider When Retiring Abroad….or why MALTA is a the top destination

From https://taxlinked.net/blog/september-2015/16-things-to-consider-when-retiring-abroad

MALTA way is your gateway to Malta opportunity to retire with sun shine, stability, great health system, low cost of living, low taxation, security, safety, global community, banking, economic and social growth, residence programme and much more…… the best of North Europe in the middle od Mediterranean sea 

We’ve already listed for you the 25 best places to retire, and we know you’re all dying to move to Ecuador when your careers in tax and law come to an end.

However, before selling your home, keeping your family heirlooms in an acclimatized storage facility and packing your bags, you need to carry out in-depth research to make sure Ecuador (or any other country, for that matter) is the right one for you. Retirement planning is essential to having a happy, relaxing and easy life in your handpicked home away from home.

In order to help you with your future retirement plans, we’ve come up with 16 things to consider when retiring abroad.

1. Don’t Flush Money Down The Toilet: The cost of living in the country you’ve chosen might be one of the most important factors when retirement planning. You want your pension, savings or supplemental income to go a long way and allow you to live a comfortable life abroad. Make sure to do your due diligence in terms of the pricing of housing, transportation, healthcare services, food and utilities, among countless others, prior to boarding that plane.

2. Planes, Trains & Automobiles: Mobility is crucial to your wellbeing when retiring abroad. A solid system of highways matched with extensive and safe public transportation, as well as an international airport with a good domestic and international flight schedule, will grant you greater flexibility when it comes to discovering your new country and heading back to your old one to visit friends and family.
Retiring Abroad: Healthcare

3. An Apple a Day Keeps the Doctor Away: At the latter stages of life, staying healthy is primordial to one’s happiness. A modern and highly professional healthcare system should be at the top of your list of things to consider when retiring abroad. Pay close attention to the quality of hospitals, the experience and levels of training of physicians and other medical doctors, and the availability and cost of medicine and medical supplies, among others. Also, make sure there are healthcare facilities nearby, say, at most 25 to 30 minutes away from where you live.

4. Put That Gun Away: Safety and personal security is of utmost importance when planning for retirement. You want to avoid at all costs dangerous, violent, and socially unstable regions of the world where your life will be in peril on a near daily basis. Pick cities (or at least neighborhoods) with low crime rates and an established expatriate community that is willing to show you the ropes.

5. Rain or Shine: Would you like to wake up to rain 75% of the year? Or scorching heat hovering near 50 °C? Yeah, we didn’t think so. Weather.com is your friend, so make sure to study your country of choice’s weather patterns. Personally speaking, it’s hard to beat the climate in San Diego, California: year-round sun and temperatures ranging from 9°C to 25°C. Paradise.

Retiring Abroad: communicating with the locals

6. Je No Parle Español: Not everyone in the world speaks English and not all of us are polyglots. Language spoken should come under consideration when retirement planning. Pick a country where you’ll feel comfortable enough communicating with the locals, be that in English or a second language. In any case, chances are you will quickly become proficient—either by choice or because you have to—in that second language.

7. Don’t Bank on It: Finding a place with a solid banking system is fundamental to retirement planning. You need to locate a reliable, professional and stable bank in which to stash away your money while living abroad. Often, branches of major European and American banks are your safest bet to protect your savings and remain at ease in cases of economic volatility.

8. Expats in the House: Living abroad, it’s always nice to find kindred souls that are experiencing what you are. Look for expatriate communities in the city of your choice and reach out to them prior to making your move. They’ll be able to answer your questions, provide you with recommendations, and make you feel more at home once you make your big move.

9. Big Macs on the House: Don’t laugh but every so often we crave what’s familiar. Living abroad among all the new smells, sounds and flavors can be overwhelming. So it’s always good to know that some of those comforts readily available back home—be it junk food or specific ingredients like, say, maple syrup or chipotle chilies—can be tracked down in your new country.

Retiring Abroad: Place to Live

10. Home Sweet Home: Real estate—its costs, availability, location and quality—might be one of the most crucial factors to consider when planning for retirement. Whether you are renting or buying, you want a comfortable, ample, well-located and affordable place to live. We suggest carefully studying the real estate markets in your shortlist of countries to retire.

11. If You Build It, They Will Come: Access to sturdy, safe and modern infrastructure can enhance one’s life abroad. The availability of good roadways, hospitals, shopping malls, hotels, restaurants, transportation hubs, theatres and museums, efficient utility services, etc., raises standards of living and makes retiring somewhere far away from home a more attractive option.

12. Inflation! Devaluation! Crisis!: Economic volatility is another factor to consider when retirement planning. Inflation, currency devaluations, tax hikes and other types of negative economic fluctuations can make life difficult for you and your bank account. Have a basic understanding of the economic history and performance of the countries on your shortlist and put together a contingency plan so that you’re not caught by surprise when things do go wrong.

13. Residency Requirements: If it’s a hassle to acquire residency to the country of your choice, then it might be better to move somewhere else. Look into residency requirements for your top choices and make sure these are not too burdensome. Many countries—for instance, Panama—offer special visas for retirees that allow them to make use of a wide range of discounts on utility bills, transportation, entertainment and more. These types of residency are highly advantageous and should be explored.

Retiring Abroad: access to the Internet

14. Can You Hear Me Now?: No one these days can live without access to the Internet or a smart phone. A reliable and efficient communications system to keep in touch with friends and family via Skype and log onto your Facebook, Twitter and Taxlinked accounts is a must. Unless what you want is to disconnect from the world and become a hermit up on a hill.

15. Take a Hike: Now that you have plenty of time on your hands, you might want to pursue all those recreational activities you weren’t free for as a working professional. Be it playing tennis, hiking, painting or dabbling in handcrafts, make sure there are facilities nearby for you to practice your favorite hobbies.

16. Don’t Make It Taxing: You cannot run. You cannot hide. Taxes will always be there, waiting for you. Even if you’re living abroad, you might still have to pay taxes back in your home country, so speak to a financial advisor to help you figure out who you owe, how much and when. You wouldn’t want to skip a payment and be penalized for moving to lovely Ecuador.
