Amid the pandemic and social and political tension, many retirees yearn to move abroad. International Living recently reported that it had seen a 1,600% increase in search volume around the term “move out of the U.S.” since May.

“The uncertainty surrounding the election, the pandemic and the economy seem to be driving people in greater numbers to seek alternatives for the future,” Jennifer StevensIL’s executive editor, explained.

International Living’s 2020 Annual Retirement Index ranks 10 countries as the best places for people to retire, using its network of editors, correspondents and contributors around the world to provide on-the-ground information and recommendations.

It then ranks and scores each of the 24 countries in the index across 10 categories: housing, benefits and discounts, visas and residence, cost of living, fitting and entertainment, health care, development, climate, governance and opportunity.

See the gallery for the best countries for retirees, according to International Living.
