Start packing your bags...

If you've been looking for a bit of a sea change, you may consider joining Australia's growing rank of expats, and seek a new life overseas.

A new list developed by HSBC ranks the best countries to live in for foreigners, according to a survey of expats themselves.

The list considers the best places in terms of wages and work opportunities, as well as the country's healthcare, culture, social qualities and opportunities to raise a family.

Topping the list was Singapore, which was by far the strongest country economically.

Meanwhile, foreigners living and working in Australia are also having a fair go, ranking us as the 7th best country for expats.

Here is the top 10: 

1. Singapore

2. New Zealand

3. Sweden

4. Bahrain

5. Germany

6. Canada

7. Australia

8. Taiwan

9. United Arab Emirates

10. Switzerland
