The Kingdom of Bahrain has achieved new international recognition by being ranked first in the Middle East and North Africa and ninth globally on the “Best Expat Destinations” list for 2023, conducted by the “Internations” organization. According to the report, the Kingdom of Bahrain has also been ranked first globally for the second consecutive year in the “Expat Essentials Index,” reflecting its competitive position and its status as a preferred destination for living and working on a global level.

The index includes aspects related to the ease of securing daily essential services in the intended country.

Additionally, 59% of expatriates praised the ease of dealing with official authorities (compared to 39% globally).

In addition to surpassing the global average in terms of stability, survey participants also considered that not speaking the local language did not hinder their achievement of stability. They believe that the Kingdom enjoys an environment supported by innovation and creativity. The respondents also perceived a continuous improvement in social life in Bahrain, ranking it sixth as a country where it is easy to make friends.

This index reflects the importance of the supportive environment that investors can rely on, as it is a key attraction factor when making investment decisions in the Kingdom.

Additionally, it provides an abundance of essential services easily accessible to residents and visitors.

The “Internations” organization is celebrating the tenth anniversary since the release of the Expat Insider survey, which is considered one of the most important global surveys based on data collected from over 12,000 participants representing 171 nationalities living in 172 countries around the world.
