Countries where immigrants are 10% or more of the population

There can be many advantages when living in an area with a large immigrant population, some of them include:

  • Not alone: If you’re also an immigrant or relative foreigner, you’re not alone and often can have no problem meeting others in similar situations to yourself.
  • Meeting new people: Likewise other immigrants most likely don’t already have their “circle” of friends already established and are more open to meeting new people.  This versus with a group that’s already established, no need for them to meet anyone new.
  • Culture mix: The more diverse, the more interesting it becomes, such as the foods or flavors that people bring with them, intermixing with local ingredients for something new.
  • New ideas: With different perspectives can bring new ideas and solutions, a little bit of your outside the box viewpoints.
