In the study’s preamble, NetCredit claims the 2021 study shows  retiring somewhere like the US or the UK will require “USD500,000 in the bank to do it comfortably.”

But if that is not possible, then retiring abroad might be the next best option, although Pakistan, the cheapest of the lot, might not your prime target.

To retire in India, you will need USD184,819. As the second cheapest destination for expatriate retirees, its beach resort destinations are the main drawcard.

Traditionally destinations in Southeast Asia have always dominated the cheap spots to retire rankings, and they remain competitive

To retire in Luxembourg, you would need USD758,000, while a retirement in the Nordic countries like Iceland, Norway and Denmark would set you back between USD645,000 and USD678,000. Retiring in Israel – the most expensive country for retirement in the Middle East – would cost you USD632,000.
