Spain is a sought-after country to visit and an even more desirable country to be an expat in according to an HSBC 2011 expat case study. When taking a glimpse into how expats in Spain view the country, it brings in the following results: it is ranked seventh for providing a positive experience compared to other countries, eighth in the expat economics luxury scale and second for having local culture. With rankings like these it’s no mystery why 42 percent of the expats in Spain moved there to escape their home country’s situation and 24 percent of the expat population moved to Spain specifically to retire.
Although living somewhere that has as much to offer as Spain is fulfilling a dream for most, it is important to make sure that responsibility is not thrown to the wind. Spain’s healthcare in reference to access and quality was ranked sixth in the race against other expat-occupied countries, but as a visitor or expat, it is important to find an insurance plan that will cover you in the event that you will need to seek emergency treatment at the best suited facility for your illness or injury.
