We all want to live somewhere that feels like home but is also safe for ourselves, business ventures, and our families. Many areas of the world are perfectly safe enough for us even when the country itself may not be the safest or may be rocky in terms of politics, conflicts, and more.
But what places are considered safe for living in the world? This means factoring in legal protections and acceptance of minorities, conflicts, financial stability, economic standing, and so much more to figure out the best options as a whole for families or businesses. Well, we’re here to show you some of the safest countries to live in the world as an answer to that question.
Actually considered the current safest country to live in the entire world is Iceland. Livability is pretty high, with plenty of resources and job options and a lower population that leads to job security and financial stability in most areas. However, cost of living is pretty high compared to most regions due to its small population and harsher climates at times causing an interesting job and economical market.
New Zealand makes this list for its low crime rates alongside things like a great tourist industry to stimulate economy and proximity to other interesting or likeable regions and countries such as Australia. There are some issues with finding stable finances, but once you are able to find a stable higher paying job you would be fine. It’s all really a matter of where and what you settle into for financial stability.
High rank in the Global Peace Index is a huge indicator for living quality, and Denmark has ranked in the top few for a long time now. It is especially good of a place for a good sense of community and work-life balance in the workplace, but also highlights great care for welfare of citizens and lower crime rates. Probably one of the only drawbacks is the slight language barrier and having to learn Danish.
Another high ranked in the Global Peace Index comes Canada, with also a huge availability of job opportunities and low crime rates as well as fairly stable political standings. The downside to a country like Canada is the higher tax rates for many citizens and businesses due to how much the government does for people in the form of health care, education, and so on. But it is ranked safe for business and living.
It’s not uncommon for countries to be very high in some areas as far as good standings or safety standards but lower or very low in others like financial stability or economy, but this list gives you some countries out there that are overall fairly good in standing for most or all areas that we may look at when thinking about the safety of people living there or wanting to live there. This is an interesting list for those of us that wonder how safe our own country of residence is, as well as for anyone considering a move to somewhere new or wanting to travel temporarily to safer countries of the world too.
