Dubai has emerged as the top choice for people around the world looking to relocate, according to a study conducted by Remitly, a US-based online remittance service. The study analyzed Google search data from 164 countries over the period from October 2022 to September 2023, using the search term “move to [city]”.

Dubai outshone cities like Miami, Paris, and New York, securing its position as the most sought-after city for relocation. Approximately 60 countries expressed interest in moving to Dubai.

Dubai’s cosmopolitan population and excellent connectivity with the rest of the world further contribute to its appeal.

The study also provided insights from various geographical regions:

– United States: 74% of the US population across 47 out of 50 states selected Dubai as their preferred international destination if they were to move abroad.
