Where is the Happiest Place in the World for Expats?

Revealed: The Countries Offering the Biggest Pay Rises

If we’re honest, very few of us would decline a pay rise, given the option. But salary increases aren’t always what they seem. Inflation, for example, is an often-ignored factor. Thus what seems like a generous pay rise can actually be anything but. Consider Venezuela, for example. According to a new study of global salary predictions, the average Venezuelan employee can look forward to a 60% pay rise in 2016. This all sounds rather enticing, until you realize that experts predict inflation of 204% ... Read more

For others the change of scenery in itself can be enough to tempt us to exotic foreign climes. And then of course there’s the money. The reality is that many expats find themselves being handsomely compensated for the life-changing decision to ... Read more
