InterNations recently released their findings for their Expat Insider Survey of 2019, reporting on the best and worst countries for expats to relocate to.

More than 20,000 respondents participated in the survey and shared their insights into expat life in 64 destinations around the world.

It allows expats to evaluate different areas of life abroad, helping them to choose a destination according to the aspects that are most important to them.
