"Migrating millionaires are a vital source of forex revenue as they tend to bring their money with them when they move to a country. Also, around 20% of them are entrepreneurs and company founders who may start new businesses and therefore create local jobs in their new country, and this percentage rises to over 60% for centi-millionaires and billionaires. 

Where the Indian millionaires will go?

Well, there are multiple countries on the list. However, UAE's Dubai is at the top spot. Henley's report suggests that Indian millionaire prefers the United Arab Emirates (USE) as their preferred choice. The UAE is expected to attract a record net inflow of 6,700 wealthy migrants in 2024.

It is pertinent to mention here that India is not the only country that is witnessing an exodus of millionaires. Other significant outflows are expected from China, the UK, South Korea, Brazil, South Africa, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Nigeria.
