World’s most inclusive country for expats named



Thinking about moving overseas? An incredibly beautiful country in Scandinavia has been named as the world’s most inclusive destination for expats.

The team at Instant Offices looked at womens’ rights, LGBTQ+ rights and racial equality in countries around the world to find the most inclusive destination in the world to work.

According to the research, Norway is the most inclusive country in the world for British expats to work. The Scandinavian country was the best place in the world for working women.

An Instant Offices spokesperson said: “Norway offers some of the highest paid maternity leave in the world, at 49 weeks.”

The country has Europe’s longest coastline as well as spectacular beaches and forests. It might be best suited to expats with an appreciation for nature as city life can quickly become very expensive.

Norway is one of Europe’s most expensive countries and expats can expect to pay more than £1,100 for a one-bedroom apartment in Oslo.

Canada was the world’s next most inclusive country and has one of the globe’s most secure environments for working women.

While Sweden also scored highly when it came to womens’ rights, the Netherlands was the top scoring country on LGBTQ+ rights.

In 2001, the Netherlands became the first country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage while a transgender woman won the Miss Netherlands title in 2023.

A recent InterNations Expat Insider survey found that the Netherlands has one of Europe’s best work-life balances, making it a great place to work as an expat.
