According to the latest findings from the Expat Experience survey the UK has ranked as one of the lower performing locations for overall expat lifestyle based on both an expat’s quality of life and the ease at which they can integrate into their new country of residence. It has shown that the UK scores low on a number of factors including quality of accommodation, commuting and even their own personal health.
What is interesting that despite this, anecdotal feedback would suggest that the UK and in particular London is one of the most sought after expat locations so it is interesting to see that expats are still coming to the UK despite admitting a poorer quality of life than their home country. Figures compiled by the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) have also suggested that immigration into the UK remains high compared with the rest of Europe.
