Greece Preferred Living Place for Expats, Digital Nomads Too

ATHENS — Yet another finding shows that Greece is quickly becoming a top choice for people wanting to live in a country with a good quality of life, particularly expatriates, and digital nomads who can work from anywhere.

Greece jumped from 37th to 34th in a worldwide list put together by international bank HSBC, from 46 countries, while seven out of 10 workers from abroad said they found life better there, reported Kathimerini.

The HSBC Expat Explorer 2021 showed that when it comes to quality of life, Greece is among the top 20 destinations for working abroad, ranking 19th while 59 percent of respondents weren’t concerned about the economy, and a third said their financial situation improved with the move.

Some 62 percent of expats polled who live and work in Greece have also already bought some property in the country.
