For years, the UAE has welcomed a whole host of people from different cultures, many of whom have called the nation their home for decades.

As the country continues to be a hugely popular place for expats, a recent survey has reaffirmed the UAE’s livability appeal.

Global expat network InterNations recently published its 2022 rankings for the best (and worst) places for to live, of which the UAE placed in the top 10.

For the InterNations’ Expat Insider 2022 survey, a total of 12,000 people living in 181 different countries were surveyed.

The rankings were then calculated based upon their answers across a series of categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. Participants were questioned about their thoughts on quality of life; ease of settling into life in the respective country; working abroad; personal finance; and more.

Overall, out of the 181 countries, the UAE ranked number six. Mexico was at the top of the list, followed by Indonesia in the number two spot, while Qatar was the only other GCC country to rank in the top 10.
