Dubai becomes No 1 jobs destination for US expats, study finds

Dubai has become the number one destination for US job seekers looking to work abroad, according to a new study.

Research by Aetna International found that Dubai has leapfrogged London as the most sought-after location, with the UK capital having topped the list since 2006.

“Compared with 2006, US citizens appear to be considering a far broader range of countries than ever before when it comes to working abroad,” said Caroline Pain, marketing director Aetna International.

About 50,000 US nationals currently live in the UAE.

1 – Dubai

2 – London

4 – Singapore

5 – Rome

6 – Geneva

7 – Cape Town

8 – Ottowa
