According to Greenback Expat Tax Services, “The country that Americans want to move to the most is Canada with over 2,700 Google searches every month.”

“Spikes in searches for moving to Canada happen often when there are big changes in America, such as when Donald Trump was elected president or the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.”

New Zealand comes in second place with Americans searching to move there over 2,300 times every month.

With its natural beauty, great work-life balance and high quality of life, Greenback Expat Tax Services says “it’s no wonder Americans are looking towards Oceania as a potential move.”

Costa Rica, in Central America, is the third most searched-for country that Americans are keen to move to. The tropical paradise has over 1,700 searches every month and offers Americans biodiversity, gorgeous sandy beaches, and wild nature.
