Australia – The “Lucky Country”
Today, Australia remains a very popular destination for expats and is considered to be one of the best places in the world to relocate to because of its high standard of life, low population density and unpolluted atmosphere. Moving to the “lucky country” means enhancing your life. The beach is calling…
Attractive climate and beautiful landscapes
Australia is a vast country with varied climates throughout the eight states and territories, offering new arrivals a diverse range of lifestyle choices. From sandy beaches, tropical forest, arid deserts and mountains, the country offers a large range of beautiful natural ecosystems.
With people coming from all over the world, the country has an extremely multicultural population. 43% of Australians were born overseas or have a parent who was born abroad, and the country celebrates their diversity on Harmony Day each year. In Australia, you will never stand out as a foreigner!
With a strong economy and low unemployment rate, job opportunities are available to everyone. Australia offers the highest minimum wage in the world which means that even casual jobs are paid much more than in Europe! If you are experienced, qualified, have a good English level and the right attitude, then this country is a perfect fit for you.
Work life balance
Australians have the reputation for being friendly and laid back. And it is actually true! People are more likely to give you the time of day in Australian cities compared to other cities over the world. Everybody clocks off early to watch the sunset from the beach at least twice a week!
Aotearoa – The Maori name for New Zealand
If your first motivation is to improve your well-being and get a better work life balance, then New Zealand could be the country for you!
Top quality of life
New Zealanders believe life is for living. Voted 2nd best country in the world for work life balance, NZ is a good place to relocate and bring up a family. With an affordable cost of living and a relatively favourable tax regime too, New Zealand is the number one choice with expatriates currently living overseas, offering to its residents a high standard of living.
Clean, beautiful and relaxed
There is something undeniably romantic about New Zealand. Clear blue skies, magnificent glaciers, lush valley landscapes, secret sandy beaches… It is not a surprise that the country has become a hot spot for qualified consultants to relocate to. Less pressure on space and natural resources means they don’t have the pollution, congestion and health issued that you often find elsewhere
An incomparable hospitality
The spirit of welcome and warmth runs deep in NZ. Maori have a word for it: Manaakitanga. The idea is that by offering hospitality, generosity and mutual respect, everyone involved comes out better off. According to a recent survey, 9 of out 10 expats find the welcome they receive meets or exceeds their expectations; so it won’t take you long to make new friends and start your new life.
Good value for money
Most major international cities have high living costs to mirror the positive career prospects and employment opportunities. However, according to the latest Cost of Living Survey from Mercer, New Zealand’s main cities are affordable when it comes to the price of housing, transport, food and other goods that are essential for every-day life.
An easy country to do business in
The World Bank has reported that New Zealand is the second easiest country in the world in which to do business. It came a close second to Singapore and was highly rated in categories such as: the time it takes to start a business; the cost of government requirements in starting, operating and closing a business; how easy it is to trade across borders; and tax laws for companies. This means that it can be a positive choice for those who want to move abroad and start their own business, sack the boss and work for themselves.
