Ranking of the Most Expensive Cities for Expatriate Employees

This is a ranking of the world’s most expensive cities for expatriate employees (not residents), according to cost-of-living surveys conducted by Mercer, Economic Intelligence Unit and ECA International.
Various factors are taken into account regarding the cost-of-living for expatriate employees, such as monetary value, consumer evidence, investment, interest rates, exchange rates of the country’s currency, and housing costs. This list does not account for cost-of-living savings available to local citizens through government subsidized housing, health care, education, differences in taxation, and many other factors not related to expatriates. Cost of living may be much higher for expatriates than for local residents in a developing company, especially if expatriates expect a standard of living similar to a developed country.
