International Moving Services to Brunei

Brunei

There are many great reasons to consider moving to Brunei. Not only is it a beautiful place to escape from your usual surroundings, but it is one of the wealthiest and most powerful countries in the world since it is one of the top oil exporters.

Many expats are drawn to the small country on the northwest coast of Borneo. Nearly 40% of the citizens are from outside of the island, mostly from the United Kingdom and other Asian countries. Citizens also enjoy a low crime rate and clean living and healthy lifestyles.

As a Muslim country, alcohol is strictly forbidden although there are certain clubs where expats can go to drink and if you are a non-Muslim you can bring a small amount in with you each time you enter the country. You just can’t drink it in public view. The government puts a lot of importance in the cleanliness and orderliness of the country and the health of its citizens. The natural citizens of Brunei enjoy free healthcare while expats can pay very low rates for their own medical treatments.

From a financial standpoint, there are a lot of things about Brunei that make it a desirable location for expats from around the world. One of the key things is that the government does not impose taxes on its citizens. That includes both natural residents and expats.

The cost of living is much lower in comparison to other wealthy countries. The fuel prices are low thanks to the major source of income provided by oil exportation. Utility rates, including electricity and water, are low as well. Food is also very inexpensive in Brunei, particularly if you are happy to eat local meals.

Because the necessary expenses are not so high, that leaves more in the budget for an expat to enjoy. Halifax accounts are kept by British expats to make it easier to control their money even while they are out of their home country.
