Expats Award Singapore Top Marks

SINGAPORE, Apr 17, 2018 - (Media OutReach) - The majority of Singapore-based expats surveyed by WorldFirst, agreed that the Lion City is an excellent destination to relocate to.

The findings come from a survey of 550 expats in Singapore, commissioned by international money transfer provider WorldFirst.

Rated 8.2/10 overall, safety was the biggest attraction, while the cost of living was the item expats would most likely change.

The expats surveyed originated from 51 countries and have been living in Singapore for a minimum of 3 months.

The survey revealed that 69% of expats relocated purely for their career, with a further 12% moving for a family member's career.

More than half of expats surveyed said that they are paid more for doing the same job in Singapore, while working the same hours, and that low tax and high salary were key attractions to moving - despite being an expensive place to live.

Rental prices, locally produced media and property prices were additional aspects that received low scores.
