Just like the Dividend Achievers Index, there is an International Dividend Achievers Index Idxis. Here is the description from their website:
The International Dividend Achievers™ Index is designed to track the performance of dividend paying American Depositary Receipts and foreign common stocks trading on major US exchanges.
To become eligible for inclusion, a company must be incorporated outside of the United States. The companies must be have an American Depository Receipt or common stock trading on NYSE, NASDAQ or AMEX. Companies must have paid increasing regular annual dividends for five or more consecutive years. The average daily cash volume must exceed $500,000 in US$ in the November and December prior to reconstitution.
