Calling all expats – your views are wanted

Expatriates around the world are being asked to complete a series of surveys focusing on different aspects of expat life and attitudes. Over the next few months expats are being asked to help researches better understand why people move abroad and the causes of these movements. Whether it’s because of an employer, personal reasons or a simple desire to see the world the number of people moving is growing on an annual basis.

The recently launched ‘The Expat Survey’ is aiming to get 10,000 expats to complete the surveys with a chance to win £1000 on offer.

Three different surveys are being run

Migration and lifestyle – currently in progress
Retail and finance – launching 20th September
Travel and health – launching 5th November

Whilst each survey is being pushed for 8 weeks they’ll all remain active until 31st December.

The plan is to make it an annual rolling survey so that trends can be tracked over time. The programme has been launched by the ex-head of research for BBC World and the ex-research director for Saatchi & Saatchi. Responses can be completely anonymous if desired and your data is not shared with any third-parties.

You can find out more about the survey and complete it on their website:
