Best Countries to Raise a Family In 2022


Many people are now searching for a plan B – dual citizenship, allowing them a safer environment and a life to raise a family abroad in these uncertain and unpredictable times.

The best countries rank high in access to reliable and first-class healthcare, safety and security, risk management, reliable infrastructure and most importantly, better opportunities for their families.

Here are our top three countries to raise a family in 2022.


Portugal boasts an incredible quality of life for the tourists and the residents. The food, the people, and the ancient culture and architecture make Portugal a desirable place for frequent travelers and retirees. Portuguese people are some of the friendliest, most loving people in the world and will, without a doubt, check the box for the community. You do not have to learn the language to become a part of their community, but it is a bonus.  

The country is filled with vineyards, farm life, and fruit trees. The local markets will provide the most nutritious meats, fruit, and vegetables, straight from the farm to your children’s health.

Portugal has one of the lowest crime rates globally, and the country boasts multiple cultural experiences and outdoor activities. The weather is always favorable, allowing for outdoor sports and activities. The quality of education is very high both in public and international schools. Lisbon, the capital city of Portugal, is ranked the second-best city to raise a family globally.


Like Portugal, Dominica is one of the safest countries in the world, with a very low crime rate. They are also a culturally diverse country with strong communities, making it a comfortable environment to make friends and build the community you need to raise a family abroad. They also provide clean eating habits with easily accessible organic meat, fruit, and vegetables straight from the farm.

The tropical weather all year round provides outdoor sports and activities opportunities, and the Caribbean Islands have no shortage of adventures. Their public and international schooling systems also create an exceptional education basis for your children.

Located in Grenada, the private medical university is the largest provider of licensed physicians to the entire US Healthcare system.

Known as ‘the Spice Island’, Grenada is one of the most populated islands in the Caribbean. Their education system is based on the British education system and is entirely free until 16. Nothing sounds sweeter to a parents’ ears than free education as it is one of the most expensive parts of raising a child, especially when you want to raise a family abroad.

Like Dominica, it boasts a tropical climate, allowing all outdoor activities for your children. Grenada also has one of the lowest crime rates, so safety will never be an issue. Business opportunities are flourishing in Grenada, specifically in the tourism department.

Raising a family abroad

Raising a family abroad is a challenging decision to make. Still, once you have confidence in your citizenship or residency by investment, it will be the best decision you have made on behalf of your family. Having a plan B in these uncertain times will provide your family with safety, a choice of education, and a culturally diverse community that they will carry through their lives. Not only that, but a stable and reliable government infrastructure and primary healthcare will ensure your family will be safe for generations.
