If you want to live and work abroad, your best bet is to head to Taiwan, according to the Expat Insider Survey 2021 run by InterNations.

The East Asian country, followed by Mexico, topped a list of 50 countries that are best for expats to live in, while Italy and Kuwait came in at the bottom.

For this year's survey—appropriately named “The Year of Uncertainty”—more than 12,000 expat respondents representing 174 nationalities and 186 countries and territories took part. It takes into account quality of life, cost of living personal finance, working abroad and ease of settling in. Respondents also shared how the pandemic has impacted their expat experience.

Americans are currently allowed into Taiwan with a valid Alien Resident Certificate. But regardless of your vaccinated status, you'll still be required to quarantine upon arrival for 14 days.
