Why Expatsi?

If you’re like us, you’ve been dreaming of living abroad — maybe someplace better, maybe someplace cheaper, but definitely someplace different! Your reasons for leaving and your ideal destination are as unique as you are. However, with 194 other countries in the world, you could spend lots of time and money just deciding where to go. That’s why we created the Expatsi Test. We’ll recommend the top 10 countries that match your needs for cost, weather, healthcare, rights & freedoms, infrastructure, safety, community, and more. Then, you can review our guide to find communities, meet expats like you, and start the next step of your search. Your exit strategy starts here!

We knew we wanted to raise our small children somewhere warm and sunny. The test recommended 10 countries, and we’ve planned a trip to visit two of them — Spain and Portugal. I subscribed to all the YouTube channels Expatsi recommended, and I can’t wait to move!
