Top 10 countries UAE expats are moving to this 2018
Where is it that most of the UAE expats move to? Is it their home countries or other expatriate-friendly nations?
While there are a lot of people that are coming into the UAE for a good long time, there are those as well who stayed over here for a long time also moving out at the same time. A research had been done in order to understand this moving trend and the rough costs that would average out from country to country by expats living in the UAE in an average 2 BHK flat. The research was done by Service Market.
Following are the top ten nations based on the analytical report that were made by more than a thousand moving requests by the UAE customers in the year of 2017.
- Saudi Arabia
Most of the expats that live in the UAE generally consist of those that hail from India and other countries largely. Hence it is not quite surprising to see them make the list and top the chart year after year.
Cost of Moving
The cost of moving back to one’s home country is taken based out on the scenario where one plans to ship the entire contents of a two bedroom flat/apartment that would roughly take up 25 cubic metres. The weight and size of the cargo would reflect the cost and the type of shipping service that one would choose, which is subjective to change.
As a rough example, door to door services is much cheaper as compared to port to port services. But when choosing the port to port options, the chosen international company will take care of all of the packing, unpacking, and paperwork.
