MADRID has once again been named as the best city to work from remotely.

Just a few weeks ago, Olive Press revealed that the Spanish capital beat the likes of Istanbul, Warsaw and Budapest  to claim the title of the place to work from remotely during the pandemic. 

The study by CIA Landlord revealed the best cities to move post-lockdown to save on expenses while still earning your current salary and living abroad in a similar time zone. 

Now a new survey MoverDB has revealed Madrid to be the top international location for expats to move to.

The Spanish capital climbed to the top of the list thanks to work opportunities, health, happiness and overall satisfaction.

A spokesperson for MoverDB said: “The city is steeped in culture and history with strong support networks available for new residents as well as a high life expectancy and one of the best healthcare systems in the world.

“It has great and affordable transport available for just £1.40 as well as low cost of living and has more top-rated restaurants than anywhere else, with 18 Michelin starred restaurants in a 25 kilometer radius.”

Reykjavik was named the second most popular city for people looking to make a major move with Iceland’s rich culture, social welfare system, and natural beauty making it a perfect place for expats searching a good work life balance and close proximity to other places in Europe.

Meanwhile Bogota and Cape Town were the next least desirable options for expats moving abroad. Bogota’s population only contains 0.3% of expats making it a relatively untouched option for those moving abroad.

The capital of Columbia offers a very lower average salary of just £3,005 annually and is one of the more dangerous countries with only 10% of people feeling safe when walking at night.

And while Cape Town is much higher on life satisfaction index, it has a very low life expectancy of just 63 years and disportionately higher average rent of £506 on average.
