Portugal, the world´s friendliest country for exparts

Being an expart in a foreign country can be challeging - you can feel isolated and lonely, and sometimes your only friends are other people from your home country. It can be difficult to learn the local language and integrate. But some countries are more welcoming than others, making the possibility of building a new life there more feasible.

A 2018 survey from InterNations, the largest global network and information site for people who live and work abroad, has looked at data and comments supplied by almost 13000 experts from 188 countries and territories to reveal which are the friendliest countries in the world to live.

Climbing nine places since 2016, Portugal claims the title of the most welcoming country for experts.One Australian expert said:"The local population is friendly and helpful" while a Dutch expert said:"people look after each other" here. Almost four in five experts (79%) describe the Portuguese as welcoming, and about three in tem (29%) state that locals make up most of their social circles (vs globally)
