The inaugural PSS National UK Emigration Survey with both Australia and New Zealand being voted the country that British people most want to move to.
When commenting on why they would be tempted to emigrate, better weather and lifestyle were common themes among the participants.
Liam Witham, Managing Director of PSS International Removals, said, “It was not a big surprise to see Australia and New Zealand at the top of the list but we were surprised to see a draw. We help thousands of families relocate and in recent years the relaxed, family friendly culture that’s found Down Under has really appealed. The lifestyle of these two countries is exactly what families are seeking in the 21st century.
Economic opportunities in Asia and the Middle East have seen a growing number of Brits move to these regions in recent years. However, they’re not the first places that spring to mind when families are considering the locations they would most like to set up home. China and Hong Kong were named 24th in the survey, while the United Arab Emirates placed at 53rd.
Liam Witham added, “Although it’s becoming slightly more difficult, there are still many opportunities for British people to start a new life overseas.
Australia, New Zealand, and Canada are still keen to recruit British people in many skilled professions. Also, for the immediate future, there is still no barrier to Europe, so Spain, France, Portugal, and other Mediterranean countries are all attainable for everyone.
“Over the next few years, it will be interesting to see how the impacts of Brexit influence the results of the PSS National UK Emigration Survey.”
The latest edition of the report was built on over 1,000 responses gained from adults living across the UK through social media platforms. Correlating the information, PSS International Removals was able to identify the top dream destinations for Brits moving abroad.
