Have you set your sights on living and working abroad lately?

In the US, conversations about moving abroad tend to spike during contentious political times — though it’s mostly talk.

But if you currently live in the US and you’re serious about leaving, you’d be in good company if you made the move.

While the US doesn’t track how many Americans live and work overseas exactly, estimates range from 2.2 million to 6.8 million, according to the Migration Policy Institute.

Engineering consulting firm KDM Engineering compiled an infographic using data from the 2015 UN International Migration Report and the 2017 Global Talent Competitiveness Index to figure out which countries are the best at attracting highly skilled talent.

The list took market landscape, ability to attract companies and people, access to education and training, and quality of life into account.

Of the countries considered to be the best at attracting highly skilled talent, Business Insider singled out all the countries that listed the US as one of their top five “feeder countries” when it comes to talent. A nation’s “feeder countries” are the countries that contribute some the most immigrants to that nation.

Here are 21 countries that are great at poaching talent from the US:
