Portugal has come out on top as the best European country for expats thanks to the country providing a great quality of life and the ease of settling in.

According to the Expat Insider 2019 survey, Portugal offers an excellent quality of life (1st worldwide) and a “relaxed lifestyle”, as a British expat highlights. It is one of the world’s best countries for leisure options (2nd): more than four in five expats (83 percent) are happy with the socialising and leisure activities available to them (vs. 65 percent globally), and almost every expat (95 percent) rates the climate and weather positively (vs. 61 percent globally).
