Britain On The Move - Top Expat Destinations Outside of Europe Revealed!

Posted 28th June 2018

There are a number of reasons why locals move abroad, in the UK many of us simply follow our desires to live in a warmer, less rainy country while others have to for work or family reasons. More recently (2 years to be exact), the UK government announced they would be leaving the European Union, which has in-fact seen a rise in the number of individuals moving abroad either to greater Europe or further afield.

This increase in Expat growth has seen the current estimate rise to around of 6 million British citizens taking up residence in foreign countries. That’s quite a substantial number- if they were all in one place it would be the UK’s second largest city, just Shy of London’s 8 Million. So if you ever find yourself wondering exactly where all these people are moving from and where they are travelling to take up a new residence, you’re not alone.

Well, here at Shipit we went back and studied over 100,000 international removals requests that we’d received, in order to find out exactly whereabouts in the UK they are moving from and where these individuals are leaving Europe for.
