Why Singapore Is A Great Place for Expats

Although known as one of the most expensive cities in the world, Singapore was recently

confirmed as the most popular place for expats to live and work. More often than not, people

choose to move abroad for business reasons, but it would seem that Singapore offers more

than just better business prospects. Fast-paced, busy and advancing at a rapid rate, here are

the three top reasons why expats are putting Singapore at the top of their list.

 

Career Development

According to a survey recently conducted by HSBC Expat Explorer, 59% of expats believe

Singapore is a great place for career advancements, with a large number stating they are far

more able to acquire new skills in Singapore than at home. The economy in Singapore is

understood to be incredibly stable, which makes it appealing to entrepreneurs seeking to start

up new businesses, and its regulatory environment also allows entrepreneurs to start their new

business in just a few days.

 

Higher Salaries

More often than not, people choose to move abroad for the appeal of salaries on offer, which is

why despite the eye-watering cost of living in Singapore, expats are heading there. A survey

found that more than a quarter of expats living in Singapore are earning more than $200,000

dollars per year, compared to just 13% of expats globally. Who cares about the fact that

transport costs three times that of New York when you’re earning so well?!

 

Quality of Life

What about those expats who haven’t experienced an immediate increase in salary who move

to Singapore? Well, it would seem that the quality of life is altogether better in Singapore. With

the economy stable and business booming, finances and healthcare easy enough to set up,

there’s no reason not to enjoy a simple life in Singapore. Many expats have even commented

on the fact that their social life is just as active, if not more so, than at home, with over half

agreeing that it was easy to adapt to the local culture and lifestyle.

 

Moving abroad is never an easy decision to make, which is why it is worth taking the time to

make sure you’ve covered all the bases. Browse our blog today for a wealth of information on

From start with Michelle to finish with Gill the level of service was excellent. John Mason and its international partners handled my move from Devon to Australia seemingly effortlessly. I couldn't ask for better.
