92% say that the country is for transitory living and has still plans to return to UK in the future.

On a statement, the NatWest International Personal Banking says,

“The most notable shift in our Quality of Life results this year was the rise of the UAE as an expat destination. The once loved traditional expat communities of France, Spain and Portugal are diminishing, with quality of life drastically reducing for expats living there, making way for newcomers such as UAE and Singapore. It seems expats are willing to adjust their lifestyle in exchange for a stronger economy and better job opportunities.”
