Mexico ranks fourth-place as favorite country to be an expat


The Best & Worst Places for Expats in 2018

Mexico is in fourth place in the ranking of the best countries in which expatriates can live, according to Expat Insider by Internations.

Four of the top 10 countries are located in Latin America: Ecuador (3rd), Mexico (4th), Costa Rica (7th), and Colombia (9th). They do well in terms of settling in, with all of them scoring top 10 positions in this index. Similarly, these countries perform very well for personal finance, all but Costa Rica (16th) ranking in the top 5. Results for working abroad and the quality of life are more varied, typically ranging from good to average.

“Mexico is one of the largest economies in the world,” they added.

There has been comparatively little change at the bottom of the ranking. Seven out of the ten worst-rated countries were already in the bottom 10 in 2017, as was Egypt (63rd in 2018) whenever it was featured in the ranking. Losing ground across all indices, Peru is new in the bottom 10. The United Kingdom continues its downward trend: after an already noticeable drop in 2017, it comes in 59th place in 2018.
