If you’re looking for a super-thrifty place
to live with dirt-cheap housing, low-cost groceries and wallet-friendly utility bills,
look no further than Numbeo’s Cost of Living Index, which rates the affordability of each
country according to the people who live there. Here are the 10 cheapest countries to live
in the world for 2018. 1. South Africa. South Africa is the cheapest country to live
or retire. It’s also the world’s largest producer
of platinum, gold and chromium, which goes far to enrich the country and its
economy. The cheap cost of labor in South Africa entails
that expats living here will have a high standard of living and will have domestic help as the
norm if they so wish. Along with a higher local purchasing power,
South Africa also offers lower prices on consumer goods and groceries, and rent costs. In the major city of Cape Town, for instance,
monthly expenses total just under $400, while the average rent costs are reflected
by the typical price to rent a one-bedroom in Durban of around $280 a month. 2. India. India is the most populous country among the
cheapest, home to 1.25 billion residents. Its major industries include textiles, chemicals
and food processing. India also has a relatively high local purchasing
power in the major cities surveyed. Living in India can be cheap; it has the second-lowest
rent index of the cheapest countries (after neighbor Nepal). India also has some of the lowest prices for
consumer goods and groceries, with typical monthly expenses for these priced
around $285 a month for a single person living in Kolkata. 3. Slovakia. For expats, the cost of living in Slovakia
is good. The Czech Republic and Slovakia were once
one, and they share a similar culture and language. Prices are also similar, though you have to
remove Prague and Bratislava from the cheap living equation, unless you get out of the
center. Both are inundated with tourists, the latter
because it’s a major river cruise stop. Secondary cities like Bruno are going to provide
a much better value. Buying a castle would be nice. After all, Slovakia has the highest number
of castles per capita. 4. Romania. With some of the fastest internet speeds on
the planet and a welcoming atmosphere for start-ups,
it’s surprising that Romania is not a more popular destination for those with a business
they can run from the laptop. It’s also one of the prettiest countries
in Europe. It’s cold in the winter and English is not
widely spoken outside the tourist areas, but prices for nearly everything are a bargain
in Romania. Beer is roughly the same price of a soda when
you go out, and you can find a good bottle of wine for a three or four euros in the supermarket. A taxi across town will only be a few dollars
and inter-city transportation is also a bargain when you want to explore. 5. Saudi Arabia. Groceries are more expensive in this desert
country than most other cheapest countries, as are consumer goods. But this Middle Eastern nation is fairly wealthy,
thanks to its strong oil industry centered on crude oil,
petroleum refining and petrochemicals. Plus, Saudi Arabia has a higher GDP per capita
of $24,000, according to the World Bank. This helps give Saudi Arabia a local purchasing
power that even beats out New York City. 6. Bosnia-Herzegovina. Bosnia and Herzegovina is a European nation
that borders Croatia and Serbia, and has a population of 3. 9 million. It’s a small but charming country in the Balkans
with spectacular mountains and outdoor adventures. After some tough time, the country’s living
standard is getting higher and higher every year. Its main industries are minerals and metals,
including steel, coal, iron ore, lead and zinc. Bosnia and Herzegovina has a decent local
purchasing power, as well as low prices on rent, groceries and consumer goods. In the capital of Sarajevo, for example, the
combined monthly costs of rent and other expenses is just around $600-$700. 7. Nepal. Costs here vie with parts of India as the
cheapest in the world, with a one-bedroom in Kathmandu priced at just $109 a month,
but a tough visa situation, poor infrastructure, and a lack of attractive cities where you
can put down roots. The two big ones of Kathmandu and Pokhara
are both choked with traffic, overbuilt, and overcrowded. Blackouts are frequent and the internet is
iffy in most spots. Beer is taxed heavily and is expensive. If you’re pulling in $2,000 a month from
a remote job or a business, you’re filthy rich by Nepalese standards. That’s 10 times the average salary here
and the GDP per capita is just over $700. For Americans looking to stretch savings in
a country with dirt-cheap living expenses, Nepal will still be an attractive choice. 8. Paraguay. Paraguay has good healthcare, culture very
friendly and love foreigners. The country has low costs across the board
on rent, grocery and consumer goods. In Asunción, the nation’s capital, consistently
ranking as one of the most affordable cities in the world,
monthly expenses for a single person are just around $360 month,
and rent for a single-bedroom flat is about $250. You can look forward to a subtropical climate,
a mixed culture between the Spanish colonial influenced and the original native culture. 9. Bulgaria. The biggest factor that put Bulgaria among
the cheapest countries to live is its low rent costs. In Varna, one of Bulgaria’s largest cities,
rent is $232 a month for a one-bedroom apartment. Food and consumer goods are also cheaper in
Bulgaria than most other countries in these rankings. One of the biggest attractions of Bulgaria
is that it offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the better things of life:
the beach in summer, skiing in the winter, golf, walking in the mountains, horse-riding,
fishing… You do get serious winters here, but from
late spring through autumn it’s glorious and there’s a surprising amount of green
space throughout the country. 10. Kazakhstan. Living in Kazakhstan is a unique, enriching
experience, characterized by strong contrasts: old and new,
Europe and Asia blend here together, creating thus a colorful, lively mix that appeals many
expats. Kazakhstan’s cheap living is most apparent
in its costs for groceries and consumer goods, which are lower than most of the cheapest
nations. In the summer pleasure boats take customers
for rides and beaches are opened for swimming. In the winter, ice slides and skating rinks
are built at intervals along the river.

    I wonder on what basis these 10 countries are rated as the cheapest in the world to live in. Who are they cheap for? The tourists? Or immigrants? If for Immigrants, India does not issue long term visa for immigrants. You can only stay as tourists in India for six months. So the information is WRONG.
