World’s most expensive country for British expats named

British expats often choose to move to countries such as Spain and Portugal to enjoy a lower cost of living.

But while a beautiful country in Asia was recently named the world’s cheapest destination for expats, there are some countries where expats could end up paying more than in the UK.

The InterNations Expat Insider survey asked expats around the world to rank their home based on several key factors.

Expats in New Zealand found the country extremely expensive and it was ranked the priciest destination in the world.

However, it might not be so bad for British expats as the UK also ended up in the most expensive three.

New Zealand was at the bottom of the cost of living index and was ranked as the most expensive country for expats.

An American expat said: “It’s expensive to travel from New Zealand, it’s so far from everywhere!”

Flights to New Zealand are very expensive from the UK so expats could rack up heavy bills if they want to travel back and forth.

Another expat said: “One of the things I dislike most about New Zealand is the high cost of living. Prices go up but never come down.”

Almost 65 percent of expats said they struggled with the country’s high cost of living and they also found housing hard to afford.

However, expats did love the country’s natural beauty and nearly all of them were happy with its air quality.
