New Zealand is the second best place to be an expat: HSBC
Wellington: Expats love the Kiwi experience, culture and how welcoming we are, but we have high costs and low salaries. Aotearoa ranked second overall in the HSBC global expat explorer study for 2018, coming in behind Singapore on the list of best destinations to live.
The list was long for what people loved about the land of the long white cloud: the quality of life, healthcare, work-life balance, safety, tolerance and it goes on. More than 22,000 expats took part in the survey and those who chose to come here say it delivers on its reputation for great living, according to HSBC.
“With its breath-taking scenery and inviting outdoor lifestyle, welcoming atmosphere and personal benefits that can last a lifetime, the expats who have moved to New Zealand from every corner of the world are convinced they made a great choice,” the survey stated.
