  • What are expats really thinking about Brexit?

    What are expats really thinking about Brexit?

    ROME — As the referendum on whether the United Kingdom will stay in the European Union fast approaches, The Expat Survey are discovering how British expats are feeling with the Big BreXpat Survey. The first results of the BreXpat survey have been released on the awareness and feelings surrounding the EU referendum in the UK that will be held on June 23, the survey itself can be found at www.theexpatsurvey.com and is open until May 31 to record the sentiments of any British citizen living overseas. The information gathered thus far has shown that 95 percent of those that have taken the survey are aware of their eligibility to vote, whilst 92 percent know that they lose their right to vote after 15 years and a still relatively high percentage of 83 are aware that it is possible to register to vote online. So far 61 percent of those surveyed have registered to vote, with the main reason for those that haven’t being the 15-year rule, making it 68 percent saying that will be voting in Brexit. Of that number 73 percent feel that they are equipped with enough knowledge to make an informed decision when voting. As tensions begin to run high in Britain, it’s no different for Brits living abroad with 72 percent saying they are concerned about the outcome of the referendum. In the meantime 44 percent say they feel anxious, 23 percent betrayed and 11 percent are angry. When directly asked whether or not they wished to remain in the EU, 68 percent said they would like to stay in, whilst 32 percent voted out. The top three scenarios for expats if Britain were to leave the EU were reported to be: 1. Take dual or solo nationality of the country where they are resident. 2. Sell all UK assets and investments held in the UK, and stop paying any tax in the UK system. 3. Reluctantly return to the UK if their financial position deteriorates as a result of the exit. The Big BreXpat Survey is due to close on May 31, at which point the results will be sent to the leaders of each political party, the Electoral Commission and the media. For those who wish to still have their say, the survey can be found at: https://www.research.net/r/Brexit2016. – See more at: http://www.italianinsider.it/?q=node/3860#sthash.u2GwLIKk.dpuf

  • The Big BreXpat Survey has launched

    April 15 - The Expat Survey
    The Big BreXpat Survey has launched

    Its gloves off as world’s largest expat research unit offers UK expats a true voice on Brexit!

    Some of the promoted benefits of Britain being a member of the European Union have been freedom of movement, the ability to retire or work overseas with ease within its member states; and to even wholly own freehold assets and other investments.

    Whilst Brits at home have been focused on the impact of inbound immigration, security, workplace competitiveness and the stretch on housing and services, who has actually given UK expats around the globe a platform through which they can express their views openly, so that their voices can be truly heard? One place where all their opinions can converge.

    Until now, nobody; and this is why the team at TheExpatSurvey.com, the world’s largest and most extensive ongoing research programme of all nationalities residing outside country of origin, has now launched The Big BreXpat Survey , so that UK expats can have their say.

    Emma Wood, founding and project director, explains “we feel very strongly about giving UK expats a genuine opportunity to freely and openly express their views on this life-changing matter and for a very good reason. We were recently contacted by a UK Government department and asked if we would be interested in conducting a survey on British expats. Initially we were excited by this proposition, as we believed it would give UK citizens residing overseas the chance to really get their opinions across. However, when we saw the draft survey, we quickly came to realise that all it would be is a politically correct tick box exercise that fails to give expats a true voice”.

    It has been a sore point amongst the British expat community for a number of years now that they lose the right to vote after 15 years of being overseas, when many of them have worked for decades paying tax into the UK tax system, often have assets in the UK and may well have plans to continue to invest in the country where they were born. Now those residing in the European Union face a potentially life-changing experience when those entitled to vote go to the polls on 23rd June 2016, but more than a million of them don’t have the right to participate.

    “British people were once unreservedly encouraged to embrace all that the European Union stood for, to get out there and make the most of it and so many did. Now there is a cloud of uncertainty over the whole arrangement and the implications for some are huge. Imagine being in a position where you have no say in a process that may dramatically affect the rest of your life and impact significantly on your loved ones; or even if you do have a say the propaganda being pumped out via various forms of media has been engineered to drown out your views. That is not just” says Wood.

    “Where our main research programme TheExpatSurvey.com and our quick polls are usually sponsored by corporate partners who are trying to best understand expatriates, to tailor their products and services appropriately, this survey is on us. It’s running at our expense, because we can no longer ignore the strength of feeling that is being communicated to us via unsolicited emails, which clearly indicates the sheer level of frustration they are experiencing. It’s been a long-fought fight for the ‘Votes for Life’ bill to be passed into law and there has been an enormous amount of campaigning for this to be done ahead of the IN / OUT vote, but it hasn’t happened yet. In the words of many expats ‘it’s a stitch up’ and so we want to give them a voice. Our findings will be reported straight back to the leaders of each political party, The Electoral Commission and the media, so we urge as many as possible to get involved”.

    The Big BreXpat Survey wants to hear from UK expats living outside the EU, as well as within it. All those that participate benefit from anonymity. The research system does not collect names, addresses, phone numbers etc., only the views of expatriates, unless of course they want to continue a direct dialogue with our team, or to join the project’s international focus group, in which case they can leave their email only.

    The Big BreXpat Survey is hosted at TheExpatSurvey.com, where expatriates can also find The Expat Helpdesk. A variety of companies are there to field enquiries from expatriates who may be concerned about the implications of a Brexit, such as International Family Law Group for advice on how family units may be affected, as well as Moore Stephens, Blevins Franks and Churchill & Partners on tax, pensions and investments, subject to where you are residing in the world.

  • NEARLY ONE-THIRD OF AMERICAN EXPATS ARE ENTREPRENEURS

    NEARLY ONE-THIRD OF AMERICAN EXPATS ARE ENTREPRENEURS

    Dgrilla/Shutterstock.com

    Americans just love to own their own businesses, whether here in America or in another country. In fact, nearly one-third of American expats are entrepreneurs, according to the Expat Survey 2014, a global study of nearly 8,000 expats living in 128 countries.

    As we await the results from the second annual Expat Survey, I thought I would give you a sampling of the some of the findings from last year’s study that were specific to Americans. The study’s research director, Emma Wood, provided these findings.

    First and foremost, American expats like to run their own businesses. The study analysis showed that 31.1 percent of those who completed the survey said they were self-employed, and nearly 17 percent said they either owned the business or were a partner. Just over a quarter of those self-employed worked for a family-owned or partially family-owned business.

    That tracks with MYIA research a few years ago. We asked American adults who were considering or planning a move abroad why they wanted to move. About 40 percent said they were moving abroad to start a new business. We also know that Milllennials make up the majority of the new American expat generation and are by far the most entrepreneurial generation in decades.

    We also learned a few other interesting things about the Americans who responded to last year’s massive expat study:

    43 percent said it was their first time abroad
    57 percent moved abroad because they wanted a different lifestyle
    Quality of life was the #1 reason given when asked why living in their new country is better than living in America
    Income taxes topped the list of reasons why living in their new country is worse than living in America (read our article, “FATCA Impacts American Expat Local Banking.”)
    Most said they will retain their U.S. citizenship and at some point return home to America
    We’ll cover the new results from The Expat Survey 2015 when they become available in September.

  • The most important nation you’ve never heard of

    August 19 - News.com.au - Australia
    The most important nation you’ve never heard of

    IT’S the fifth-biggest population in the world, and its wealthy and high-achieving population is hugely important for business, politics, travel and education.

    Yet we know very little about this group of 232 million people, whose influence and power are often overlooked.

    This is the nation of Expatria, the imagined community of expatriates, which has quadrupled in size in the past 25 years. As researchers begin to examine who they are, it’s time to take a close look at what they tell us about our future.

    INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE

    Many Australian expats are skilled migrants, leaving home for well-paid roles with big companies. Tim Sylow moved from Melbourne to Shanghai with his wife and two young sons in 2002 for a marketing manager job with mining firm BHP Billiton. “We thought we’d bite the bullet,” he told news.com.au. “It was a global company, a promotion and it opened the door for other opportunities. You become quite valuable.”

    Tim’s career prospects snowballed. After four years, he moved to Singapore, now with a third child in tow, and then back to Australia before the family headed to Kent, in the southeast of England, as seasoned expats.

    Employees with an overseas education and perspective are increasingly important to businesses on every continent as the working environment goes global. And it’s not just corporations that benefit — immigrants meet high demand for skilled workers including bricklayers, tilers, chefs in Australia, while EU migrants often fill gaps in manual industries in the UK.

    “Expats bring an international perspective to any culture,” Emma Wood from The Expat Survey, the largest independent research program of its kind, told news.com.au. “They’re often well-travelled, well-educated and they bring a different dimension to the workplace.”

    The downside is that countries can end up fighting for employees in industries where there is a shortage, as with the medical profession. That can mean a “brain drain” from poorer countries that cannot pay well but are desperately in need of expertise.

    SPENDING POWER

    With trillions of dollars in the bank and specific needs as consumers, expats are of enormous interest to businesses. But it’s very difficult to pin them down, with companies usually unable to distinguish expat from local customers.

    That’s starting to change, as rapid improvements in technology make it easier for retailers to target overseas consumers, and they start to recognise the significance of this shift.

    Expats frequently want to buy items they love from home, and can become effective brand ambassadors. “A brand with strong recognition goes after the expat community because it knows it will have market penetration and a gateway to the wider market through word of mouth,” said Emma. “A retailer can identify half a million customers within a specific radius.”

    Major high street retailers from the UK have directly targeted the British market in Australia and Asia through online and social media ad campaigns. Other companies ship hampers of food to homesick individuals, international grocery stores and supermarkets.

    “Food-wise, China was the hardest,” said Tim’s wife Lisa. “And we furnished our house in Shanghai, which was pretty difficult. We were thankful for Ikea. Otherwise, your Chinese has to be pretty good.”

    Airlines are also chasing the expat market, who may fly home several times a year and even treat family members to flights to visit them.

    STRONG NETWORK

    Expats tend to form close bonds with people of the same nationality as they navigate an unfamiliar land. This helps them develop a strong voice, giving them political and social power in influencing their new country as well as their peers back home.

    “The expat community, particularly in Shanghai, was really supportive,” said Lisa, who won an award for her volunteer work. “It was very family friendly. I volunteered all the time in Asia. We also had coffee mornings, lunches, shopping tours and cultural tours, where you might have a talk about antiques in Shanghai, for example.”

    The Sylow family would read online news from Australia, allowing them to develop a close understanding of two cultures at the same time, something that wasn’t possible for expats of previous generations. “It makes you judge your home country more because you see it as an outsider,” added Tim. “The way [Adam Goodes] was treated was absolutely appalling, the treatment of female politicians, public transport is nothing like the UK.”

    The fact that expats can vote in their home countries means political parties have to be conscious of how they look to the world. Emigrants can wield tremendous influence thanks to the growth of social media, podcasts, e-books and internet communication.

    During the Greek bailout crisis, the country’s expats became sensitive and nuanced arbiters of national opinion for other countries the world.

    KNOWLEDGE POOL

    Many expats take small children to a new country and place them in international schools, with 3.7 million studying in English overseas. This is expected to double over the next ten years, making the next generation globally cosmopolitan in a way we have never seen before.

    The Sylows say their social life in Singapore revolved around the international school where their children were placed with the help of Tim’s company.

    International students in tertiary education are even more influential, numbering around five million, and growing by 10 per cent each year since 2000. It’s creating new east-west connections, as young people from China and India head to western universities, the US being the most popular, and western students going to Asia.

    In 2011, Chinese foreign students accounted for eight out of ten international students in Australia.

    There are many positives to this movement. Evan Ryan, US Assistant Secretary of State, said international education was “crucial to building relationships between people and communities”, adding that these relationships will help “solve global challengers like climate change, the spread of pandemic, disease, and combating violent extremism.”

    There are also risks, however. Leaders of the Indian Independence movement are said to have been “radicalised” by their Oxbridge education, while stories of Western students joining extremists to the Middle East have recently dominated the news.

    NEXT GENERATION

    The people of Expatria are carving out new pathways through life, enabled by rapid advances in travel, technology and overseas communication. There are wide disparities within this group, however, illustrated by the divide between South Asian migrant workers who build Dubai’s pleasure palaces and the multinational CEOs who occupy them.

    Perhaps most significant are the 13 million migrants under nine years old, the so-called “Third Culture Kids” who represent our future. Like migrant adults, they cover the spectrum from those travelling with wealthy expat families to the unaccompanied young immigrants fleeing Central America or Africa.

    Their “third culture” is a synthesis of that of their parents and host country, and they are the truest global nomads. These young people face psychological and social challenges, but their understanding of our interconnected modern world cannot be beaten.

    Their unique bicultural and bilingual status means they are well-placed to help both their new and old country, where many return. Japan’s third culture kids (Kikokushijo) have posed repatriation difficulties, but have been hailed for a three-dimensional world view that can help its industries tackle globalisation.

    Expatria’s children are four times more likely to achieve a Bachelor’s degree than non-expatriates, and more than a third go on to Master’s level study. They are our future.

    The Sylows say their free movement around the world has grown more difficult as their children reach high school, but they believe the kids have benefited from seeing far more than most of their peers.

    But the family admit they have lost a certain connection with home. “Don’t put stuff in storage and don’t think you’re only going to go for the time you’ve said,” said Lisa. “Ninety per cent of the expats we know have been here longer than seven years. Once you’re an expat, you’re always an expat.”

    ‘Expatria’ the biggest country you’ve never heard of…

    June 5, 2015 – Expat Survey, Reports and Analysis
    Here at the Expat Survey we take ‘expat’ to mean anyone who lives outside of his or her nation of origin for at least six months of any twelve-month period.

    There are 232 million people living outside of their nation of origin but what do we actually know about them? Immigrant or expat, tax exile or asylum seeker, estimations vary wildly and the knowledge of a population of almost a quarter of a billion has proven shallow. The Expat Survey conducts independent research that aims to paint a more accurate and textured picture of a constantly changing landscape. To emphasise this dearth in intel, if we took the world’s expatriates and put them in a country, how would that country look and feel?

    ‘Expatria’ – our imaginary nation of expatriates/immigrants – would have a population of 232 million, rising from 154 million in 1990 and 175 million in 2000, according to UN statistics. This ranks Expatria as the fifth most populous nation on the planet, over three and a half times the number of people in the United Kingdom and sandwiched between Indonesia and Brazil – half the population size of the European Union. Expatria’s population growth rate of over a third since 1990 is matched by Brazil and Indonesia, two of the fastest growing economies worldwide.

    The average age of the citizens of Expatria would be 38, being at their average youngest in Africa and oldest in Oceania. UN statistics estimate that 48% of the population would be women and 26 million of the residents aged 65+ years of age and proportionally greater represented than they are in the world population, 11% of the migrant population yet just 8% of the world’s population. Interestingly, 20-34 year olds represent 64 million people and also less females, which can be attributed to the transit of male migrant workers, especially those based in Asia.

    The population of Expatria must be considered one of the most diverse on the planet. The largest proportion of people coming from South Asia, accounting for 36 million of the population, with about 19 million migrants living in Europe, some 16 million in Northern America and about 3 million in Oceania. The second and third largest groups coming from Central America and the Caribbean, 17.4 million Central Americans are living in the US.

    Measuring the wealth of Expatria is difficult; however remittance figures estimated by the World Bank give some indicator of the economic power of expatriates worldwide. The World Bank estimates $435 billion will be sent in remittance in 2014, outweighing ODA (official development assistance) by a factor of three. Although being a crude comparison, this figure would project Expatria as a top 40 world economy in 2014 if taken as its GDP. This is without considering the estimated wealth of tax exiles to be found in the havens of Switzerland, Luxembourg and the like. A study conducted by economist James Henry suggests at least £13 trillion ($20tn) squirreled away worldwide, which would catapult its ranking amongst the top few.

    The citizens of Expatria are workers in a diverse range of fields that have significant economic power. European immigrants (European Economic Area) in the UK have contributed £20bn a year from 2001 to 2011 according to a study conducted by University College, London. Not only are expats economic contributors but work in various sectors. In the case of the UK, The Telegraph states that migrants from within the EU primarily fulfilling manual work, in factories and farming, whilst Non-EU immigrants are prominent in professional roles in health and science.

    The population of Expatria equates to 3.2% of the world’s population but what do we really know about them?

    The understanding of Expatria is in black-and-white with broad strokes, while the UN suggest a worldwide population of extra-nationals in 232 million, independent research conducted by Finaccord suggests a figure 56 million worldwide in 2014. At least there are estimates for the size of this universe, beyond quantitative figures, little is known of the quality and composition of the lives of expatriates.

    This article has highlighted that there is a massive population, globally-based, that people know very little about, and what is by no means concrete. In 2013, The Guardian estimated that ethnic minorities, 14% of the population of the United Kingdom, is not effectively marketed to by businesses, only emphasising the massive Expatria-shaped hole in market intelligence. The findings of the Expat Survey 2013 illuminated that expatriates spend more time on sites from their country of origin rather than sites of their country of residence; 70% still choosing to shop online from native sites. Statistics like these emphasise the inability of business to understand the spending habits of immigrant communities.

    The deficiency of information highlights the need for independent research, the need for the Expat Survey. The English historian J. H. Plumb once stated, ‘statistics may give shadow and depth to the picture [yet] they cannot paint it.’ In regards to expatriate understanding, it is The Expat Survey that acts as the brush to paint the market’s landscape, to get the wants of a potential quarter billion understood by relevant and influential business.

    Third Culture Kids: our global future?

    Who are Third Culture Kids?

    In the first exploration into the ‘imagined community’ of Expatria we established some of its key statistical contours, a rudimental mapping of a made-up nation. Its 232 million inhabitants make it the world’s fifth most populous ‘nation’, a population that has quadrupled in the last 25 years. Data provided by the UN and CIA Factbook projected Expatria as a nation befitting the developed world – an average age corresponding to Poland and South Korea and a GDP, although difficult to ascertain using remittance and tax avoidance figures, suiting other better fairing economies.

    However, these promising figures are brought together by glaring disparities. Polarisations personified by the divide between the South Asian migrant workers who build the pleasure palaces of Dubai and the multinational CEOs that occupy them.

    Third Culture Kids are children who have spent a significant part of their formative years living outside of their parents’ country of origin.

    This series aims to investigate all facets of life in Expatria, starting with its future – its children. Young migrants number 34.8 million globally, being proportionally greater in the developing world, which hosts 62% of migrants under 20.

    UN data produced in 2010 announced that there are over 13 million global migrants between the ages of 0 and 9, representing a significant proportion of immigrant populations in Africa and Central and South America. Child migration is as popular amongst developing nations as it is between developing and developed nations. Research stemming from the 1950s has conveyed expatriate children, referred to as Third Culture Kids (TCKs), as a unique group of growing global significance. In the Telegraph, Ruth van Reken acknowledged the exponential growth of TCKs and the ‘priceless gifts’ they have to offer.

    Third Culture Kids: a border-straddling upbringing

    The third culture is inspired by parental cultures and host nation cultures.

    Third Culture Kids, the adopted sons and daughters of Expatria, are children who have spent a significant part of their formative years living outside of their parents’ country of origin. Sociologist Ruth Hill Useem’s work, based on her personal experiences of raising a family in India, built the platform for understanding expatriate children as being of a distinct third culture. The third culture is inspired by parental cultures and host nation cultures; the third, a synthesis created in the Petri dish of expatriate life.

    Understanding of this border-straddling upbringing, was furthered by Ann Baker Cottrell who defined ‘global nomads’ as children ‘raised in third cultures, cultures which are created and shared by individuals in the process of relating different societies.’

    Overseas job opportunities have increased and so have the number of globally-located children, it is estimated that there are as many bilingual children in the world as there are monolingual. In a survey conducted amongst American Adult Third Culture Kids (ATCKs), Expatria’s children were proven highly educated, four times more likely to achieve a Bachelor’s degree than non-expatriates, and over a third go on to Master’s level study.

    Third Culture Kids have been a historical mainstay since the dawn of imperialism. The Child Migrant Trust charts the beginning of this movement to 1618 as London-born children were sent to Richmond, Virginia. Writers JG Ballard and Doris Lessing are examples of children of empire and their third culture experiences permeate through their work.

    After World War Two and America’s consolidation as a world power, professional migration, globalised companies, international organisations and military outposts expanded the number of school age Americans living overseas, numbering 300,000 in research conducted in 1976. The embodiment of this phenomena is Barack Obama, born in Hawaii and raised in Indonesia and Chicago, now the 44th President of the United States of America.

    Kikokushijo

    “Aren’t those who actually experienced living overseas better candidates for globalisation than those who have never left Japan?”Yasuo Ichimura

    Third Culture Kids of Japanese origin, known as Kikokushijo, have posed both a domestic difficulty and a potential solution to a nation, like all, needing individuals with a three-dimensional worldview. In 2011, the Kikokushijo grew to 780,000 and have been a cause of periodic domestic issues due to their difficulties in re-assimilation. In light of the current global climate, The Japan Times has called for this oft-marginalised group of bicultural and bilingual returnees to assist Japan, as its industries grapple with globalisation. Yasuo Ichimura, a representative of the Japan Foreign Trade Commission, questioned – “aren’t those who actually experienced living overseas better candidates for globalisation than those who have never left Japan?”

    The formative make-up of Expatria’s youth appears an identikit for the future – an enriching cross-cultural experience generating an expanded worldview, children that embody the present day. In the globalised twenty-first century TCKs find themselves ‘increasingly relevant in the contemporary interconnected world’, according to Baker Cottrell.

    The potential of the bilingual and bicultural is vast, however, the second part of this segment aims to make clear the difficulties and crises that befall children of global movement, an attempt to answer whether the world-faring are destined for world-weariness.

    How many expats are there?

    Here we take ‘expat’ to mean anyone who lives outside of their nation of origin for at least six months of any twelve month period.

    Verb (used with object), expatriated, expatriating
    1) to banish (a person) from his and her native country 2) to withdraw (oneself) from residence in one’s native country 3) to withdraw (oneself) from allegiance to one’s native country
    There are 232 million people living outside of their nation of origin but what do we actually know about them? Immigrant or expat, tax exile or asylum seeker, estimations vary wildly and the knowledge of a population of almost a quarter of a billion has proven shallow. The Expat Survey conducts independent research that aims to paint a more accurate and textured picture of a constantly changing landscape. To emphasise this dearth in intel, if we took the world’s expatriates and put them in a country, how would that country look and feel?

    Welcome to Expatria
    An expatriate (sometimes shortened to expat): is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than that of the person’s upbringing. The word comes from the Latin terms ‘ex’ (out of) and ‘patria’ (country, fatherland).‘Expatria’ – our imaginary nation of expatriates/immigrants – would have a population of 232 million, rising from 154 million in 1990 and 175 million in 2000, according to UN statistics. This ranks Expatria as the fifth most populous nation on the planet, over three and a half times the number of people in the United Kingdom and sandwiched between Indonesia and Brazil – half the population size of the European Union. Expatria’s population growth rate of over a third since 1990 is matched by Brazil and Indonesia, two of the fastest growing economies worldwide.
    The average age of the citizens of Expatria would be 38, being at their average youngest in Africa and oldest in Oceania.

    A diverse population
    The population of Expatria must be considered one of the most diverse on the planet. The largest proportion of people coming from South Asia, accounting for 36 million of the population, with about 19 million migrants living in Europe, some 16 million in Northern America and about 3 million in Oceania. The second and third largest groups coming from Central America and the Caribbean, 17.4 million Central Americans are living in the US.

    Measuring the wealth of Expatria is difficult; however remittance figures estimated by the World Bank give some indicator of the economic power of expatriates worldwide. The World Bank estimates $435 billion will be sent in remittance in 2014, outweighing ODA (official development assistance) by a factor of three. Although being a crude comparison, this figure would project Expatria as a top 40 world economy in 2014 if taken as its GDP. This is without considering the estimated wealth of tax exiles to be found in the havens of Switzerland, Luxembourg and the like. A study conducted by economist James Henry suggests at least £13 trillion ($20tn) squirreled away worldwide, which would catapult its ranking to the top of the table.

    The citizens of Expatria are workers in a diverse range of fields that have significant economic power. European immigrants (European Economic Area) in the UK have contributed £20bn a year from 2001 to 2011 according to a study conducted by University College, London. Not only are expats economic contributors but work in various sectors. In the case of the UK, The Telegraph states that migrants from within the EU primarily fulfilling manual work, in factories and farming, whilst Non-EU immigrants are prominent in professional roles in health and science.

    The population of Expatria equates to 3.2% of the world’s population but what do we really know about them?

    The understanding of Expatria is in black-and-white with broad strokes, while the UN suggest a worldwide population of extra-nationals is 232 million, independent research conducted by Finaccord suggests a figure 56 million worldwide in 2014. At least there are estimates for the size of this universe, beyond quantitative figures, little is known of the quality and composition of the lives of expatriates.

    This article has highlighted that there is a massive population, globally-based, that people know very little about, and what is by no means concrete. In 2013, The Guardian estimated that ethnic minorities, 14% of the population of the United Kingdom, is not effectively marketed to by businesses, only emphasising the massive Expatria-shaped hole in market intelligence.

    The findings of the Expat Survey 2013 illuminated that expatriates spend more time on sites from their country of origin rather than sites of their country of residence; 70% still choosing to shop online from native sites. Statistics like these emphasise the inability of business to understand the spending habits of immigrant communities.

    The deficiency of information highlights the need for independent research, the need for the Expat Survey. The English historian J. H. Plumb once stated, ‘statistics may give shadow and depth to the picture [yet] they cannot paint it.’ In regards to expatriate understanding, it is The Expat Survey that acts as the brush to paint the market’s landscape, to get the wants of a potential quarter billion understood by relevant and influential business.

    What is the survey?

    Expat Survey 2015For some the decision to move has been a lifestyle change, for others there has been no choice. For many the best decision they ever made, for others an unforeseen disaster. With more than 230 million expatriates worldwide, the dynamics of migration and integration into new habitats and cultures have never been more complex.

    Why did you make the big decision to relocate? Is life in your adopted home all that you expected? How do you now communicate with friends and family around the world?

    Those are some questions that an independent international research study is asking. By answering the quick survey you will help to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home; and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    Reaching an audience of more than 10 million, this research programme is the largest of its kind ever undertaken. Almost 200 off and online media owners from around the world have united behind ‘The Expat Survey’ to publicise it; and several companies specialising in servicing expatriates have committed as collaborative partners to promote it.

    Rest assured your information remains confidential. The Expat survey will only analyse the findings to help companies better engage with their audience.

    The 2014 Expat Survey aims to compile fresh information about global migration and lifestyle

    A global research programme mapping the movements and habits of citizens who have made a new life in a different country is once again calling for the collaboration of expatriates around the world.

    In the 2013 Expat Survey, which studied the views and lifestyles of citizens of a wide range of nationalities resident in countries all over the world, 80 per cent of respondents said that they enjoyed better quality of life in their adopted home. Nearly as many (72%) agreed that climate and scenery were better than back home, while work/life balance, personal security, health services and friendliness of the people were also among the factors considered as better in their new homes by the majority of expatriates.

    The residents surveyed, however, were less enthusiastic about salaries and political stability.

    The largest number of expatriates who answered the 2013 survey lived in Spain followed by residents in France and Holland.

    When asked about reasons for moving abroad, the search for a better lifestyle was rated more highly than the climate. On average the expatriates who answered the survey had lived in their current country of residence for nine years, while 13 per cent said they had settled in their new home more than 20 years ago.

    This year the Expat Survey programme continues its work to obtain updated information about the views and lifestyles of people who have chosen to live in another country.

    The Migration and Lifestyle questionnaire can now be filled in online while the Retail and Finance and Travel and Health sections will be available soon.

    Expatriates who complete all three questionnaires will be entered into a draw for a cash prize.

  • ‘Expatria’ the biggest country you’ve never heard of! (Part One)

    December 3 - News.Cision.Com - Global

    Here at the Expat Survey we take ‘expat’ to mean anyone who lives outside of their nation of origin for at least six months of any twelve month period.

    There are 232 million people living outside of their nation of origin but what do we actually know about them? Immigrant or expat, tax exile or asylum seeker, estimations vary wildly and the knowledge of a population of almost a quarter of a billion has proven shallow. The Expat Survey conducts independent research that aims to paint a more accurate and textured picture of a constantly changing landscape. To emphasise this dearth in intel, if we took the world’s expatriates and put them in a country, how would that country look and feel?

    ‘Expatria’ – our imaginary nation of expatriates/immigrants – would have a population of 232 million, rising from 154 million in 1990 and 175 million in 2000, according to UN statistics. This ranks Expatria as the fifth most populous nation on the planet, over three and a half times the number of people in the United Kingdom and sandwiched between Indonesia and Brazil – half the population size of the European Union. Expatria’s population growth rate of over a third since 1990 is matched by Brazil and Indonesia, two of the fastest growing economies worldwide.

    The average age of the citizens of Expatria would be 38, being at their average youngest in Africa and oldest in Oceania. UN statistics estimate that 48% of the population would be women and 26 million of the residents aged 65+ years of age and proportionally greater represented than they are in the world population, 11% of the migrant population yet just 8% of the world’s population. Interestingly, 20-34 year olds represent 64 million people and also less females, which can be attributed to the transit of male migrant workers, especially those based in Asia.

    The population of Expatria must be considered one of the most diverse on the planet. The largest proportion of people coming from South Asia, accounting for 36 million of the population,  with about 19 million migrants living in Europe, some 16 million in Northern America and about 3 million in Oceania. The second and third largest groups coming from Central America and the Caribbean, 17.4 million Central Americans are living in the US.

    Measuring the wealth of Expatria is difficult; however remittance figures estimated by the World Bank give some indicator of the economic power of expatriates worldwide. The World Bank estimates $435 billion will be sent in remittance in 2014, outweighing ODA (official development assistance) by a factor of three. Although being a crude comparison, this figure would project Expatria as a top 40 world economy in 2014 if taken as its GDP. This is without considering the estimated wealth of tax exiles to be found in the havens of Switzerland, Luxembourg and the like. A study conducted by economist James Henry suggests at least £13 trillion ($20tn) squirreled away worldwide, which would catapult its ranking amongst the top few.

    The citizens of Expatria are workers in a diverse range of fields that have significant economic power. European immigrants (European Economic Area) in the UK have contributed £20bn a year from 2001 to 2011 according to a study conducted by University College, London. Not only are expats economic contributors but work in various sectors. In the case of the UK, The Telegraph states that migrants from within the EU primarily fulfilling manual work, in factories and farming, whilst Non-EU immigrants are prominent in professional roles in health and science.

    The population of Expatria equates to 3.2% of the world’s population but what do we really know about them?

    The understanding of Expatria is in black-and-white with broad strokes, while the UN suggest a worldwide population of extra-nationals in 232 million, independent research conducted by Finaccord suggests a figure 56 million worldwide in 2014.

    What do expats really think about their life abroad? Do they give it the big thumbs up, or regret their decision to leave their country of origin? Last year 80% of expatriates confirmed they have an improved quality of life where they now live. 72% said they enjoy a better climate and scenery, 67% an enhanced work/life balance and 63% a much greater sense of security. With all that is going on in the world, the team at The Expat Survey reviews these and a broad range of other opinions each year; and whether or not they ever intend to return to their homelands.

    During 2013 expatriates from all walks of life completed the research study including high net worth individuals, business executives, career movers, international students, economic and war zone migrants. Zooming in on highlights from last year’s programme and focussing on current affairs and trends, there’s something everyone. New topics for the 2014 include education and studying abroad, politics and voting rights, changes in attitude towards investments, life’s little luxuries, fashion and lifestyle; as well as mental, physical and spiritual health.

    Many expatriates are overseas due to the nature of their work and so the programme is very interested in hearing from those that have relocated in pursuit of better opportunities for themselves and their families. Maybe they work for the oil and gas, utilities and mining sector or financial, technology or hospitality industries. No matter what their background is and where they are now their opinions are of equal importance to the project.

    Specialising in the communication and consumption habits of those on the move and how human beings qualify their own personal identities, the i-World research unit is independent (it genuinely engages with expatriates organically and is not owned or its contents influenced by a media company or Corporate) and has more than 25 years experience in analysing international markets. It really wants to hear from expatriates over 18 years that are currently living outside their country of origin for more than 6 months in any one year; on either a temporary or permanent basis. Whether they are a business owner, employee, full time parent, student, retiree or any other status their contribution is very important. Those that complete all three questionnaires are automatically entered into a series of prize draws with £1,000 cash, Amazon vouchers and Lebara SIM Cards to be won. Expats can also opt to join their growing international focus group.

    The Expat Survey is the largest and most in-depth annual online research programme of its kind (it is also available by post, simply text name and address to +44 (0) 7792 045121).  In 2013 expatriates of 89 nationalities responded from 125 countries to a total of 152 questions, producing the most comprehensive multi-topic profiles on their lives abroad. Comprising three questionnaires – Migration & Lifestyle, Retail & Finance and Travel & Health, the first part of their 2014 research programme is now live at www.theexpatsurvey.com

    With no links to Governments and no personal details shared, the team hopes expatriate from all over the world will feel welcome to engage, express their views and share their adventures and experiences.

  • The Expat Survey 2014 is now live!

    November 17 - TenerifeNews.org.es - Spain

    Do you give your life abroad the big thumbs up? Last year 80% of expatriates confirmed they have an improved quality of life where they now live. 72% said they enjoy better climate and scenery, 67% an enhanced work/life balance and 63% a much greater sense of security. With all that is going on in the world, the team at The Expat Survey would like to know if these and other opinions have changed at all; and do you ever intend to return to your country of origin.

    Zooming in on highlights from last year’s programme and focussing on current affairs and trends, there’s something for everyone. New topics for this year include education and studying abroad, politics and voting rights, changes in attitude towards investments, life’s little luxuries, fashion and lifestyle; as well as mental, physical and spiritual health.

    The research team really wants to hear from you if you are living outside your homeland for more than 6 months in any one year; on either a temporary or permanent basis. Whether you are a business owner, employee, full time parent, student, retiree or any other status your contribution is important. Those that complete all three questionnaires are automatically entered into a series of prize draws with £1,000 cash, Amazon vouchers and Lebara SIM Cards to be won. Expats can also opt to join their growing international focus group.

    The Expat Survey is the largest independent online research programme of its kind (it is also available by post if you would like to request copies to be sent to you text your name and address to +44 (0) 7792 045121). In 2013 expatriates of 89 nationalities responded from 125 countries to a total of 152 questions, producing the most comprehensive multi-topic profiles on their lives abroad. Comprising three questionnaires – Migration & Lifestyle, Retail & Finance and Travel & Health, the first part of their 2014 research programme is now live at www.theexpatsurvey.com

    With no links to Governments and none of your personal details shared, the team hopes you will feel welcome to engage, express your views and share your adventures and experiences.

    Your votes count too! The Expat Survey Consumer Awards (TESCA)

    Servicing those that live overseas is often complex and requires a lot of dedication. Producing daily, weekly and monthly publications or delivering good quality customer care to somebody on the other side of the world, is challenging and requires significant skill and commitment. Importantly the information they supply or the care they provide, can be essential in the day to day lives of those living outside their country of origin.

    The Expat Survey Consumer Awards have been launched to give expatriates the opportunity to nominate and commend the work of media owners and service providers that do an amazing job of adding value to the lives of expatriates, no matter who or where they are.

    Voting is now open for the following awards:

    Best Expat Blog

    Best Expat Radio

    Best Expat Newsletter

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    About the Expat Survey Consumer Awards

    Servicing those outside their country of origin is often complex and requires a lot of dedication. Producing a daily, weekly or monthly publication or delivering good quality customer care to somebody on the other side of the world is challenging and requires a lot of commitment. Importantly, the information they supply or the care they provide can be essential in the day-to-day lives of those living outside their country of origin.    

    The Expat Survey Consumer Awards have been launched to give expatriates the opportunity to nominate and commend the work of media owners and service providers that do an amazing job of adding value to the lives of expatriates, no matter who they are or where they are, so please make your nominations and recommendations known.

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    About the Expat Survey Consumer Awards

    Servicing those outside their country of origin is often complex and requires a lot of dedication. Producing a daily, weekly or monthly publication or delivering good quality customer care to somebody on the other side of the world is challenging and requires a lot of commitment. Importantly, the information they supply or the care they provide can be essential in the day-to-day lives of those living outside their country of origin.    

    The Expat Survey Consumer Awards have been launched to give expatriates the opportunity to nominate and commend the work of media owners and service providers that do an amazing job of adding value to the lives of expatriates, no matter who they are or where they are, so please make your nominations and recommendations known.

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    The Expat Survey Consumer Awards have been launched to give expatriates the opportunity to nominate and commend the work of media owners and service providers that do an amazing job of adding value to the lives of expatriates, no matter who they are or where they are, so please make your nominations and recommendations known.

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    About the Expat Survey Consumer Awards

    Servicing those outside their country of origin is often complex and requires a lot of dedication. Producing a daily, weekly or monthly publication or delivering good quality customer care to somebody on the other side of the world is challenging and requires a lot of commitment. Importantly, the information they supply or the care they provide can be essential in the day-to-day lives of those living outside their country of origin.    

    The Expat Survey Consumer Awards have been launched to give expatriates the opportunity to nominate and commend the work of media owners and service providers that do an amazing job of adding value to the lives of expatriates, no matter who they are or where they are, so please make your nominations and recommendations known.

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

Importantly, the information they supply or the care they provide can be essential in the day-to-day lives of those living outside their country of origin.    

    The Expat Survey Consumer Awards have been launched to give expatriates the opportunity to nominate and commend the work of media owners and service providers that do an amazing job of adding value to the lives of expatriates, no matter who they are or where they are, so please make your nominations and recommendations known.

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

  • World’s largest independent expatriate research programme is now open – £1,000 CASH, Amazon vouchers, Lebara SIM cards to be won

    November 10 - PaulFM.co.uk - United Kingdom
    What do expats really think about their life abroad? Do they give it the big thumbs up, or regret their decision to leave their country of origin? Last year 80% of expatriates confirmed they have an improved quality of life where they now live. 72% said they enjoy a better climate and scenery, 67% an enhanced work/life balance and 63% a much greater sense of security. With all that is going on in the world, the team at The Expat Survey reviews these and a broad range of other opinions each year; and whether or not they ever intend to return to their homelands.During 2013 expatriates from all walks of life completed the research study including high net worth individuals, business executives, career movers, international students, economic and war zone migrants. Zooming in on highlights from last year’s programme and focussing on current affairs and trends, there’s something everyone. New topics for the 2014 include education and studying abroad, politics and voting rights, changes in attitude towards investments, life’s little luxuries, fashion and lifestyle; as well as mental, physical and spiritual health.

    Many expatriates are overseas due to the nature of their work and so the programme is very interested in hearing from those that have relocated in pursuit of better opportunities for themselves and their families. Maybe they work for the oil and gas, utilities and mining sector or financial, technology or hospitality industries. No matter what their background is and where they are now their opinions are of equal importance to the project.

    Specialising in the communication and consumption habits of those on the move and how human beings qualify their own personal identities, the i-World research unit is independent (it genuinely engages with expatriates organically and is not owned or its contents influenced by a media company or Corporate) and has more than 25 years experience in analysing international markets. It really wants to hear from expatriates over 18 years that are currently living outside their country of origin for more than 6 months in any one year; on either a temporary or permanent basis. Whether they are a business owner, employee, full time parent, student, retiree or any other status their contribution is very important. Those that complete all three questionnaires are automatically entered into a series of prize draws with £1,000 cash, Amazon vouchers and Lebara SIM Cards to be won. Expats can also opt to join their growing international focus group.

    The Expat Survey is the largest and most in-depth annual online research programme of its kind (it is also available by post, simply text name and address to +44 (0) 7792 045121).  In 2013 expatriates of 89 nationalities responded from 125 countries to a total of 152 questions, producing the most comprehensive multi-topic profiles on their lives abroad. Comprising three questionnaires – Migration & Lifestyle, Retail & Finance and Travel & Health, the first part of their 2014 research programme is now live at www.theexpatsurvey.com   

    With no links to Governments and no personal details shared, the team hopes expatriate from all over the world will feel welcome to engage, express their views and share their adventures and experiences.

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The aim of the project is to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories…

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain a much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country, and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home, and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    November 3 - iEyeNews.com - Cayman Islands

    World’s largest independent expatriate research programme is now open

    £1,000 CASH, Amazon vouchers, Lebara SIM cards to be won

    What do expats really think about their life abroad? Do they give it the big thumbs up, or regret their decision to leave their country of origin? Last year 80% of expatriates confirmed they have an improved quality of life where they now live. 72% said they enjoy a better climate and scenery, 67% an enhanced work/life balance and 63% a much greater sense of security. With all that is going on in the world, the team at The reviews these and a broad range of other opinions each year; and whether or not they ever intend to return to their homelands.

    During 2013 expatriates from all walks of life completed the research study including high net worth individuals, business executives, career movers, international students, economic and war zone migrants. Zooming in on highlights from last year’s programme and focussing on current affairs and trends, there’s something everyone. New topics for the 2014 include education and studying abroad, politics and voting rights, changes in attitude towards investments, life’s little luxuries, fashion and lifestyle; as well as mental, physical and spiritual health.

    expat-surveyMany expatriates are overseas due to the nature of their work and so the programme is very interested in hearing from those that have relocated in pursuit of better opportunities for themselves and their families. Maybe they work for the oil and gas, utilities and mining sector or financial, technology or hospitality industries. No matter what their background is and where they are now their opinions are of equal importance to the project.

    Specialising in the communication and consumption habits of those on the move and how human beings qualify their own personal identities, the i-World research unit is independent (it genuinely engages with expatriates organically and is not owned or its contents influenced by a media company or Corporate) and has more than 25 years experience in analysing international markets. It really wants to hear from expatriates over 18 years that are currently living outside their country of origin for more than 6 months in any one year; on either a temporary or permanent basis. Whether they are a business owner, employee, full time parent, student, retiree or any other status their contribution is very important. Those that complete all three questionnaires are automatically entered into a series of prize draws with £1,000 cash, Amazon vouchers and Lebara SIM Cards to be won.

  • How Expats can Avoid Culture Shock

    October 23 - Clements.com - Worldwide

    Living abroad alone is becoming a growing trend, especially among young professionals. In today’s climate, where building your career is important and young

    Life as an expat is full of hurdles, but it also presents a number of unique opportunities to grow as both a person and a professional. Business customs abroad can vary differently from those practiced in your home country. Those who aren’t familiar with the local business customs and etiquette may experience the phenomenon known as “culture shock. Whether you’re a frequent international business traveler, or a seasoned expatriate, here are some ways you can be mindful of your destination country’s culture:

    Turn to work, friends for help

    Recently, more than 8,000 expats across the world took the time to answer questions for The Expat Survey 2013. Participants came from over 125 countries and spanned many nationalities, including American, British, Indian and Australian. Participants were asked what types of things they did to help integrate with their new culture and how to avoid culture shock.

    The most common answer was work and friends, according to The Expat Survey 2013. Asking for advice from an employer can shed some light on the inner workings of the new country. In addition, many expats also turn to religious organizations and their local embassies for help. Overall, expats understood that patience was needed to learn the many different cultural, social and professional dynamics present abroad.

    Learn the stages of culture shock

    Culture shock can come in many shapes and sizes, so you should identify which ones may impact you as you move abroad. Certain emotions can either help you during the transition or make things more complicated.

    According to Kwintessential, the first emotion you may experience is one of joy. Early on, youcould be impressed and amazed by the new culture, preventing you from feeling concerned or worried. However, you may soon miss your friends and family back home, or become stressed with your new job. You could exhibit signs such as boredom, apathy, irritability and hostility. In most cases, a positive attitude and patience can help overcome these issues.

    Don’t try to cope alone

    Dealing with the effects of culture shock can be challenging, but problems are often made worse if you try to tackle everything on your own. Instead, do as many other expats have – turn to those around you, including those who have done it all before.

    InterNations magazine recommended that you talk to your company’s human resources department. These professionals are well-versed in the expat experience and they can provide crucial resources to make your transition easier. Moreover, you may benefit from performing some research ahead of time. Before you make the move, check out your new country. Learn about its culture and its people so you won’t be caught off guard once you move there.

    Above all else, take a look at customs and cultures and determine where there are risks that may impact your life. Be ready for culture shock. Nearly everyone goes through it at some point, so preparing for the inevitable will help you cope with any problems. Understanding what lies ahead of you will make it much more manageable.

    When going abroad, do research ahead of time and embrace the culture. Find out other tips for living and working abroad.

     

  • The Expat Survey 2014 is now live!

    £1,000 CASH, Amazon vouchers, Lebara SIM cards to be won

    Do you give your life abroad the big thumbs up? Last year 80% of expatriates confirmed they have an improved quality of life where they now live. 72% said they enjoy better climate and scenery, 67% an enhanced work/life balance and 63% a much greater sense of security. With all that is going on in the world, the team at The Expat Survey would like to know if these and other opinions have changed at all; and do you ever intend to return to your country of origin.

    Zooming in on highlights from last year’s programme and focussing on current affairs and trends, there’s something for everyone. New topics for this year include education and studying abroad, politics and voting rights, changes in attitude towards investments, life’s little luxuries, fashion and lifestyle; as well as mental, physical and spiritual health.

    The research team really wants to hear from you if you are living outside your homeland for more than 6 months in any one year; on either a temporary or permanent basis. Whether you are a business owner, employee, full time parent, student, retiree or any other status your contribution is important. Those that complete all three questionnaires are automatically entered into a series of prize draws with £1,000 cash, Amazon vouchers and Lebara SIM Cards to be won. Expats can also opt to join their growing international focus group.

    The Expat Survey is the largest independent online research programme of its kind (it is also available by post if you would like to request copies to be sent to you text your name and address to +44 (0) 7792 045121).  In 2013 expatriates of 89 nationalities responded from 125 countries to a total of 152 questions, producing the most comprehensive multi-topic profiles on their lives abroad. Comprising three questionnaires – Migration & Lifestyle, Retail & Finance and Travel & Health, the first part of their 2014 research programme is now live at www.theexpatsurvey.com

    About The Expat Survey 2014

    The Expat Survey programme has been launched to gain much better insight into the needs of those living outside their country of origin and to specifically understand what is relevant and helpful to expatriates within each country and what isn’t. Whilst there are questions that simply require tick boxes to be completed, the programme breaks away from convention and asks optional questions about your relocation experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home; and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent.

    With more than 230 million expatriates worldwide, the dynamics of migration and integration into new habitats and cultures have never been more complex.

    Reaching an audience of more than 10 million, this research programme is the largest of its kind ever undertaken. Almost 200 off and online media owners from around the world have united behind ‘The Expat Survey’ to publicise it; and several companies specialising in servicing expatriates have committed as collaborative partners to promote it.

    The programme is led by the ex-head of research for BBC World and the ex-research director for Saatchi & Saatchi, a management consultant that has lived and run businesses overseas and a team of specialists with more than 20 years’ experience in the expatriate market.

    Please note: In completing The Expat Survey, you will not provide your name, address, telephone number or date of birth; your personal details will not be shared with third parties. The Expat Survey has no links to Governments whatsoever. Please see the terms and conditions on their website for more information.

  • Largest Independent Global Expat Study Launches

    October 17 - MyInternationalAdventure.com - Global

    The folks who did the largest independent global expat study in the world last year just launched their 2014 survey, and it promises to be bigger and better with even more information you can use to help plan your adventure abroad.

    The i-World Research Expat Survey 2014 is the largest independent global expat study of those living outside their country of origin.

    In the inaugural 2013 study, i-World surveyed just under 8,000 expats from 125 countries and 89 nationalities for their opinions and attitudes on a variety of topics included in the 152-question study. The overall survey included separate studies on Migration & Lifestyle, Retail & Finance and Travel & Health.

    We reported the findings in our article, “Global Survey Discovers New American Expat Generation” and published the edited video interview on our YouTube channel, MYIAchannel.

    Emma Wood, i-World’s project director, is back at it again. “Our 2013 study gave us more than 60,000 pages of data to pour through based on the open-ended questions we asked,” she says. “About 60 percent of the respondents were women and a broad range of the expat population from all over the world was represented.”

    Findings from the 2013 study show that 80 percent of expats confirm they have an improved quality of life where they now live, 72 percent say they enjoy a better climate and scenery, 67 percent feel they have an enhanced work/life balance and 63 percent believe they have a greater sense of security.

    Wood wants even more expats to join in the fun this year. “We have no links to governments and no personal details are shared,” she assures. “Feel welcome to engage, express your views and share your adventures and experiences.”

    If you’re an expat or soon will be, you can visit the Expat Survey 2014 website to share your views. To qualify, you must have lived outside of your homeland on a temporary or permanent basis for at least six months before taking the survey.

    If you participate in all three surveys, you’re automatically entered into a series of prize drawings for US$1,600 in cash, Amazon vouchers and Lebara SIM cards.

    The Expat Survey launches Love Stories competition on Facebook

    In response to expatriates sharing their adventures, including the reasons why some of them moved overseas or across continents to be with the one they have fallen for, The Expat Survey has launched a competition on Facebook asking those living outside their country of origin to spread some romance by sharing their love stories.

    As you can imagine there are many reasons for why people leave their roots and move to a new land to set up home. There are those that have plans for a better life and those who sadly felt they had no choice; and then there are those that meet the person of their dreams and decide to move to a foreign territory to be with them.

    Our current competition celebrates love migration!

    All those that post a story on The Expat Survey Facebook page are entered into a prize draw to win a £50 Amazon voucher.

  • Life’s little luxuries gifted to expats

    July 14 - Telegraph.co.uk - Digital, Expat, International

    Telegraph.co.uk - Life's little luxuries gifted to expats

    According to a spokesman for Max Media, which analysed the results of the Expat Survey, beauty and medical products, technology such as games consoles and mobile phones plus DVDs and foodstuffs were the top items taken to expats as gifts. Among the unusual or notable examples were golf balls – specifically the Harrods brand – which were received “numerous times” by expats living in Bermuda and Spain, where they have plenty of opportunities to use them.

    It seems that expats are fond of luxury brands when it comes to items other than golf balls too – and their generous friends are happy to indulge them. For those missing English cuppas, tea from top London food store Fortnum and Mason proved a popular gift, according to the survey analysts.

    Crabtree & Evelyn of London offer bath, body and skincare products, which were mainly taken from the UK as gifts for expats living in the United States.

    Bisto gravy was a popular choice for those living in Spain and Portugal, who presumably miss the traditional British roast dinner.

    Black pudding from Stornaway in the Western Isles of Scotland has special status under EU law, meaning it can’t be copied anywhere else in the world. Perhaps that’s why it was listed among the gifts taken to expats by their friends and family.

    Boots the chemist was a popular place to shop for gifts for expats. “John Frieda products from Boots in the UK, plus a raft of other pharmaceutical and health supplements were taken to almost every territory”, according to a spokesman for the survey analysts.

    English language PC keyboards were listed as gifts taken to expats living in Greece, Russia and the United Arab Emirates – destinations that have different alphabets.

    The survey polled expats from around the world – not just those who hail from the United Kingdom. Some Australians living in Malaysia and Singapore cited surf boards as gifts they’d recently been lucky enough to receive from home.

    Hellenic expats in the UK and Australia often had something to chew over as a result of their visitors, who brought them pistachio nuts from Greece.

    Marzipan is popular in Germany and the city of Lübeck has a proud tradition of marzipan manufacture – such as the little creatures pictured here being made at the Niederegger Marzipan Factory. Germans living in Italy listed the sweet almond-flavoured treat among their gift items.

    French cognac was among the items taken to lucky expats in Hong Kong.

    Indeed expats in Hong Kong – and Singapore – have expensive tastes, according to the survey. French champagne was another item that popped up in the results as having been taken to them as a gift.

    Czech wafers are much-missed by Czech residents of the UK it seems – they were listed as a popular item brought over by friends and family.

    Japanese porcelain is not the easiest thing in the world to transport, but some lucky expats in Australia received it as a gift brought from Japan.

    HIGHLIGHTS REVEALED from 2013 study In the world’s largest independent research programme.

    It’s taken four months for its team to analyse more than 60,000 pages of consolidated results and insights into the lives of almost 8,000 expats around the globe. Comprising more than 150 questions across three surveys: ‘Migration & Lifestyle’, ‘Retail & Finance’ and ‘Travel & Health’, The Expat Survey 2013 was launched on 15th July last year and remained live for six months. Any nationality in any country was free to engage in the project; and providing they completed all three parts of the programme each expat was then entered into a prize draw to win £1,000 cash.

    Responses came from 128 countries, with most of the feedback being provided by ten nationalities – British, Americans, South Africans, Irish, Dutch, Australians, Canadians, Indians, Germans and New Zealanders. Project Director Emma Wood explains ‘we wanted to achieve several key things with our research programme. Firstly to learn about each expatriate’s migratory journey and the reasons behind their decision to leave their country of origin. Secondly, to find out whether or not the grass is greener on the other side and thirdly to establish what is now relevant to them and the decisions they make in their day to day lives; from banks to brands, health to holidays, the technology they favour and the media they connect with. Beyond this we wanted to secure meaningful and ongoing engagement with them, so that they can continue to share their views and opinions with us’.

    ‘We are delighted with the outcome of our inaugural study. Expats from all walks of life and locations have made an invaluable contribution and we are now able to understand what’s important to them and what isn’t, what they feel adds value to their lives or influences their decisions when making critical consumer choices. In a world where we are all constantly bombarded with information and advertising messages, relevancy is particularly significant to this group of individuals, due to the dynamics of their lifestyles’.

    Out of 56 contract, pay as you go and roaming SIM solutions put forward by those residing outside their country of origin, the top 3 coms providers based on vote volumes were Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile. Wood adds ‘the project covered a diverse range of topics and gleaned in-depth insights. For example, whilst it’s significant to know which coms companies expats mostly subscribe to, it was particularly relevant to learn that in many cases those companies don’t have exclusively ownership of their customers’ consumption. When expats are on the move many often adapt their telecoms and broadband solutions on a trip by trip basis, subject to the continent and territory they are going to; and with a good understanding of the infrastructure and options available
    to them. Many use several packages with different providers and numerous actually explained why’.

    Out of 167 travel website/apps nominated it wasn’t an airline or tour operator that dominated the top 10, but price comparison platforms with Skyscanner in first position, Expedia in second and Booking.com in third; but interestingly it wasn’t only price that ranked in their priorities when choosing to look up these providers.Independently minded expats didn’t hold back when sharing their opinions of online retailers. Many received significant praise, but in equal quantities there was criticism for certain elements of the online shopping experiences they had received.

    When asked about their favourite brands the top 10 were Apple, Samsung, Chanel, Armani, Gucci, Nike, Sony, Zara, Ralph Lauren and Marks and Spencer. And whilst most of these are deemed to be luxury with considerable price tags, to those that voted they were regarded as good value for money.

    ‘We are pleased to report that Eastern and Latin American cultures connected with us too; and in the 2014 research study due to launch in the middle of next month, we shall be focussing on developing response levels from Chinese, Brazilian and other emerging groups’ said Wood.

    ‘In tandem with the 2014 research programme we also intend to launch The Expat Survey Consumer Awards (TESCA) to further empower expatriate consumers, as they will be able to nominate and explain in up to 100 words why they favour certain media and companies that service them’.

    ‘If you reside outside your country of origin for more than 6 months in any 12 month period, on a temporary or permanent basis, we really want to hear from you. The Expat Survey is accessible via smart phone, iPad and most tech applications, so wherever you are in the world we hope that those that engaged with us last year will join us again this year; and that thousands more expats will join in too’.

    The Expat Survey 2013 prize draw was won by Mrs Audrey Harris, originally from Britain but now living in Fuerteventura, who invested her winnings in a new laptop and a trip to visit her family. The 2014 research programme will again offer a cash prize for participation, as well as some other great treats to be announced in the coming weeks on their website at www.theexpatsurvey.com

  • Global Survey Discovers New American Expat Generation

    June 28 - MyInternationalAdventure.com - Global

    A groundbreaking new global expat survey by i-World Research confirmed that a new American expat generation has been on the move for the last five years and is primarily populated by the millennial generation.

    Called the Expat Survey 2013, just under 8,000 expats from 128 countries were researched for their opinions and attitudes on a variety of topics. The overall survey included separate studies on Migration & Lifestyle, Retail & Finance and Travel & Health.

    MYIA spoke with i-World Research Project Director Emma Wood to get all the details, mainly from the Migration & Lifestyle study.

    “This is the largest independent global expat study of those living outside their country of origin,” Wood said. “It gave us more than 60,000 pages of data to pour through based on the 150 open-ended questions we asked. About 60 percent of the respondents were women and a broad range of the expat population from all over the world was represented.”

    A key finding that jumped out from the research was the emergence over the last five years of a new American expat generation, confirming what we have reported in our articles “The New American Expat Generation” and “Which Americans Are Moving Abroad.”

    “There also is a youth element to moving abroad, particularly from America,” Wood said. “Ten years ago Americans were not really up there. The American element was not strong, but it has opened up in the last five years with the younger generation of Americans adopting a much more adventurous attitude, a much more inquisitive attitude on foreign cultures. There was a younger element in there below the age of 30 that has adopted the attitude ‘If I don’t do it now, when am I going to do it?’”

    We asked Wood what specifically she found out about Americans. “They set out on a mission to find out if the grass is greener on the other side,” she said. “About 70 percent said that it is, so they are lured to move on by greater lifestyle enhancements and increased pay, generally. Around 8 percent of them said they are actively looking for their next spot at the moment. That 8 percent makes up part of the 22 percent who are considering where they would like to go next. So they are adventurous and really quite brave. A lot of them, once they get the bug, enjoy it. And in a way, they find challenges, even language challenges, part of the excitement. That is their outlook on life.”

    Wood told us that many young Americans are still moving to Europe. “It all depends whether they are in a position to be roaming and exploring or if they are moving for their careers,” she said. “There is a lot of activity into Europe, despite the language barrier.”

    Many American millennials have an entrepreneurial bent and will be heartened at the survey’s findings on starting a new business abroad. “There was a large proportion of expats who do run their own businesses where they are,” Wood said. “Where there are language barriers and huge bureaucracies, there is a tendency for self-employed expats to network amongst themselves because that is where they find the solutions to the problems they are facing. And that is particularly prevalent in Southern Europe, countries like Portugal, Spain, Italy and Croatia.”

    For all expats, moving to another country is more than just finding a new job or starting a business. “The overall consensus,” Wood said, “is that lifestyle, better work/life balance, the ability to pursue more leisure or a better climate are the key motivators for most people.”

    Wood told us that some people said they were financially worse off and often live on a lot less, but they qualify their overall experience of living abroad as being better because of better diet, health and other quality of life factors. “Some of them knew that when they were going to their new country they just wanted to strip away all of the unnecessary stuff and just enjoy something that was calmer,” Wood explained.

    But most find that they have more disposable income and are able to do more things, particularly travel to other places, including returning home. “That was an interesting insight,” Wood said. “In the last 12 months, 90 percent of those surveyed had visited their country of origin. What was equally interesting was that friends and family visited expats as much as expats visited them.

    Another remarkable finding from the study was that 80 percent of those living abroad have been expats for nine years and have lived in three different places. If expats were not making a career move supported by an employer, their first move was most often to an English-speaking country, which explains why Australia and Canada were popular destinations. “Canada is emerging as quite an attraction,” Wood said, “ because they have initiated incentives to lure skilled people there. Hong Kong and Singapore are very popular for those making career moves. Asia overall is where many people are going for their careers.”

    There also are quite a few “serial expats,” those who move from country to country. “For some, returning to their country of origin from wherever they reside in the world holds no appeal and so they have flown further afield to find new opportunities in expat hot spots like Dubai, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong,” Wood said.

    Not all is perfect, though, in expat-land. Expat complaints ranged from bad property deals to banking problems. “I think that perhaps some of them did not do enough research before they moved,” Wood said. “You hear stories of people who were sold land or property that was not what they thought it was. We also heard from Americans who were concerned about the impact the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) was having on their ability to open a local banking account. In some places it was preventing them from getting a bank account.”

    You can find out all the details on FATCA in our article “FATCA Impacts American Expat Local Banking.”

    As for what expats are looking for in the future, Wood said it is all about relevancy. “They are in a foreign territory and want to equip themselves to fulfill their aspirations. And so they are only interested in what is directly relevant to them. Whoever is providing services to expats really needs to be on the ball to be totally relevant to their specific needs.”

    If you are interested in participating, the 2014  Expat Survey will get underway in July.

  • Expats had their say in a big way!

    Highlights revealed from 2013 study

    In the world’s largest independent research programme

    It’s taken four months for its team to analyse more than 60,000 pages of consolidated results and insights into the lives of almost 8,000 expats around the globe.

    Comprising more than 150 questions across 3 surveys, ‘Migration & Lifestyle’, ‘Retail & Finance’ and ‘Travel & Health’, The Expat Survey 2013 was launched on the 15th July last year and remained live for 6 months. Any nationality in any country was free to engage in the project; and providing they completed all three parts of the programme each expat was then entered into a prize draw to win £1,000 cash.

    Responses came from 128 countries, with most of the feedback being provided by ten nationalities – British, Americans, South Africans, Irish, Dutch, Australians, Canadians, Indians, Germans and New Zealanders.

    Project Director Emma Wood explains ‘we wanted to achieve several key things with our research programme. Firstly to learn about each expatriate’s migratory journey and the reasons behind their decision to leave their country of origin. Secondly, to find out whether or not the grass is greener on the other side and thirdly to establish what is now relevant to them and the decisions they make in their day to day lives; from banks to brands, health to holidays, the technology they favour and the media they connect with. Beyond this we wanted to secure meaningful and ongoing engagement with them, so that they can continue to share their views and opinions with us’.

    ‘We are delighted with the outcome of our inaugural study. Expats from all walks of life and locations have made an invaluable contribution and we are now able to understand what’s important to them and what isn’t, what they feel adds value to their lives or influences their decisions when making critical consumer choices. In a world where we are all constantly bombarded with information and advertising messages, relevancy is particularly significant to this group of individuals, due to the dynamics of their lifestyles’.

    Out of 56 contract, pay as you go and roaming SIM solutions put forward by those residing outside their country of origin, the top 3 coms providers based on vote volumes were Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile.

    Wood adds ‘the project covered a diverse range of topics and gleaned in-depth insights. For example, whilst it’s significant to know which coms companies expats mostly subscribe to, it was particularly relevant to learn that in many cases those companies don’t have exclusively ownership of their customers’ consumption. When expats are on the move many often adapt their telecoms and broadband solutions on a trip by trip basis, subject to the continent and territory they are going to; and with a good understanding of the infrastructure and options available to them. Many use several packages with different providers and numerous actually explained why’.

    Out of 167 travel website/apps nominated it wasn’t an airline or tour operator that dominated the top 10, but price comparison platforms with Skyscanner in first position, Expedia in second and Booking.com in third; but interestingly it wasn’t only price that ranked in their priorities when choosing to look up these providers.

    Independently minded expats didn’t hold back when sharing their opinions of online retailers. Many received significant praise, but in equal quantities there was criticism for certain elements of the online shopping experiences they had received.

    When asked about their favourite brands the top 10 were Apple, Samsung, Chanel, Armani, Gucci, Nike, Sony, Zara, Ralph Lauren and Marks and Spencer. And whilst most of these are deemed to be luxury with considerable price tags, to those that voted they were regarded as good value for money.

    ‘We are pleased to report that Eastern and Latin American cultures connected with us too; and in the 2014 research study due to launch in the middle of next month, we shall be focussing on developing response levels from Chinese, Brazilian and other emerging groups’ said Wood.

    ‘In tandem with the 2014 research programme we also intend to launch The Expat Survey Consumer Awards (TESCA) to further empower expatriate consumers, as they will be able to nominate and explain in up to 100 words why they favour certain media and companies that service them’.

    ‘If you reside outside your country of origin for more than 6 months in any 12 month period, on a temporary or permanent basis, we really want to hear from you. The Expat Survey is accessible via smart phone, iPad and most tech applications, so wherever you are in the world we hope that those that engaged with us last year will join us again this year; and that thousands more expats will join in too’.

    The Expat Survey 2013 prize draw was won by Mrs Audrey Harris, originally from Britain but now living in Fuerteventura, who invested her winnings in a new laptop and a trip to visit her family. The 2014 research programme will again offer a cash prize for participation, as well as some other great treats to be announced in the coming weeks on their website at www.theexpatsurvey.com

    June 19 - Expat Singapore - Singapore

    In a world of rapid change amidst globalisation, volatile economies and the tech revolution, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, as well as conflict over natural resources and power struggles displacing native populations; many have moved abroad in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side, but is it?

    The Expat Surbey tries to establish the answer to this question and more, to understand migratory patterns and causes; and gain a true understanding of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories. It’s taken four months for its team to analyse more than 60,000 pages of consolidated results and insights into the lives of almost 8,000 expats around the globe. Highlights from 2013 study in the world’s largest independent research programme have recently been revealed.

  • Clements Worldwide Press Release

    June 12 -

    Clements Worldwide, one of the collaborative partners in The Expat Survey 2013 have released a statement following the circulation of the highlights taken from the study.

    Expats find that adjusting to life and work abroad can be a seamless experience and easily managed with the right tools

    June 12, 2014 (Washington D.C., USA) – Clements Worldwide, the leading provider of international insurance solutions, today released the findings of the Expat Survey 2013, in collaboration with i-World Research, a research consultancy with over 20 years of experience in expatriate communications and media.
    Supported by Clements, the Expat Survey 2013 results include responses from expatriates from 128 countries, many of whom reported surprising insights about life abroad. Issues like understanding a new tax system, finding the right school for children and learning a new language are now considered much more easily surmountable with the right tools and advice.

    For example, 63 percent of respondents found that organizing finances when abroad was an easy task, and 61 percent also considered securing healthcare insurance easy when first moving out of their home country. Similarly, 75 percent reported that they felt happy in their new country, while only 12 percent felt that their expectations had not been met.

    Notably, the majority of expats reported that financial planning and insurance protection is something they consider an afterthought, choosing to arrange these plans after landing in their new destination. In this instance, 55 percent reported securing health insurance after they moved and 64 percent indicated that they chose insurance protection for their assets and property after arrival. However, expats may still be more suited to making these decisions prior to departure, to ensure that they are able to select a comprehensive international insurance policy that offers the maximum level of protection.

    Sergio Sanchez, Chief Marketing Officer at Clements, said: “The results of the Expat Survey 2013 clearly indicate that moving abroad is no longer a challenging or difficult experience but is a process that expats can find enjoyable and relatively straightforward. As global insurance experts, we have worked with expat clients every day for over 65 years to provide them with financial protection and peace of mind. This ensures that their experience moving and living abroad is as hassle-free as possible.”

  • PRESS RELEASE – Expats had their say in a big way

    June 10 - Highlights revealed from 2013 study

    In the world’s largest independent research programme.

    It’s taken four months for its team to analyse more than 60,000 pages of consolidated results and insights into the lives of almost 8,000 expats around the globe.

    Comprising more than 150 questions across 3 surveys, ‘Migration & Lifestyle’, ‘Retail & Finance’ and ‘Travel & Health’, The Expat Survey 2013 was launched on the 15th July last year and remained live for 6 months. Any nationality in any country was free to engage in the project; and providing they completed all three parts of the programme each expat was then entered into a prize draw to win £1,000 cash.

    Responses came from 128 countries, with most of the feedback being provided by ten nationalities – British, Americans, South Africans, Irish, Dutch, Australians, Canadians, Indians, Germans and New Zealanders.

    Project Director Emma Wood explains ‘we wanted to achieve several key things with our research programme. Firstly to learn about each expatriate’s migratory journey and the reasons behind their decision to leave their country of origin.

  • Frustrated Wives revealed in part one of world’s largest expat survey

    June 10 - Spanish Vida website - Spain

    As the second survey ‘Retail & Finance’ gets underway at www.theexpatsurvey.com and the third and final part ‘Travel & Health’ is set to launch in November, incredible results are emerging from the first survey ‘Migration & Lifestyle’ providing very detailed insight from those living outside their country of origin in almost 100 countries. The initial part examined from where to where, why and when and now resident in their chosen community what they like or dislike about their adopted home, what media channels they follow and use to stay in touch with friends, family and the outside world; and how easy or hard did they find it to integrate.

    Contending with an unfamiliar country and culture, often a new language and suddenly no friends and family for support, numerous wives have shared their sense of bitter disappointment with their husbands’ employers for failing to appreciate the impact on the family unit; and a sense of being left to tackle the challenging dynamics of establishing a home and integrating alone; whilst the focus of the companies was on getting their spouses settled into their new workplace as quickly as possible. In some cases relocation specialists were involved in catering for the career moves, but stand accused of not truly understanding and meeting their needs.

    ‘For some women, particularly those with children, the sheer stress of the corporate relocation bordered not only on being a career breaker, but almost a marriage breaker as well. These respondents are urging companies to take greater responsibility for getting the experience right not just for their employees, but their families too; and recommend that those contemplating a move use social media to contact other company employees, their spouses and other expats in their chosen destination to get the full lowdown on what their move might really entail’ says Emma Wood, project director for www.theexpatsurvey.com.

    ‘From the outset The Expat Survey team has been committed to not only conducting the most far-reaching global research programme, but to ensuring that each survey in our three-part annual study connects with expats in a meaningful way to understand their true experiences. We really want expats to have their say and need them to share their stories, good or bad, so that the statistical outcomes of each survey can be placed in real context’ she explains.

    Despite the initial upheaval, 71% of respondents intend to remain outside their country of origin; whilst 22% disclosed that they are considering moving on to a new destination and 8% have an active plan-of-action to achieve this imminently. Churches are praised for providing a lot of practical support as well as spiritual; and surprisingly the South Korean Government is highlighted as being a superb relocation facilitator and integrator; whilst Japan and China are sited as places where securing a work permit is painful unless your employer has clout or you have the right connections.

    Several thousand expats of many nationalities have responded so far thanks to the fantastic coverage provided by media owners around the world and the on-going promotional support received from its growing number of reputable collaborative partners. These include the currency exchange giant Oz Forex, Vonage the award winning telecoms provider, Bishop’s Move the international removal company and Britishcornershop.co.uk the popular online retailer offering worldwide home delivery.

    Expat trends

    Led by the ex-head of research from BBC World, the specialist research team is independent and has received responses from more than 100 countries so far.

    “We have been thrilled with the response from expatriates from all walks of life around the globe who have shared their stories with us. It has been a truly engaging experience for the team and has provided us with unique insight enabling us to establish a very in-depth understanding of those residing in a foreign country,” said Emma Wood, Project Director.

    “In a world of rapid globalisation where physical and virtual boundaries no longer exist due to growing freedom of movement and technology, it is essential to interpret and comprehend these dynamics. What motivates relocation in different parts of the world? What challenges do expatriates face? What do they expect from those that service them? How do they communicate and what do they respond to? Our aim has been to really zoom in and examine all of these elements.”

    Emerging highlights show a broad spectrum of online shopping behaviour. Some 69 percent of expats have purchased multiple travel tickets via the internet in the last 6 months, versus just 12 percent on groceries and essentials; as they opt to shop locally to engage in their adopted communities and eat native produce when not on the move.

    Analysis of spending habits has revealed some fast growing online trends when it comes to expatriates making purchases from .com stores outside their country of residence. Around 55 percent bought books, CDs and DVDs online in the second half of last year. Some 78 percent spent up to £100 on shoes, with 66 percent treating themselves to clothes up to £100 every month.

    Almost 70 percent of respondents have made it clear that delivery charges are an important consideration when shopping online, with 42 percent making arrangements with friends and family to take goods out to them on their next visit.

    Amazingly and despite the growing volume and nature of currency exchange specialists 72 percent still transfer their money via their bank.

    “On behalf of the team I would like to convey our gratitude to the many thousands that have joined in so far. What the programme has really demonstrated to us is that it isn’t just about percentages and statistics, but about getting to the heart of what, when and particularly why”, said Emma Wood.

    It’s not too late to get involved in the largest international study of those living outside their country of origin, for your chance to win £1,000.

  • January 28 - My International Adventure website

    Last November we told you about an interesting new global study by London-based Max Media International in our AVA blog “New Survey Says Most Expats Will Remain Expats.” Well, the study rolls on and is continuing to produce interesting insights about living life abroad.

    Based on over 5,000 responses from expats in 110 countries, the “Migration and Lifestyle” study is the first in a series of three surveys that will be conducted annually. “Retail and Finance” and “Travel and Health” studies are still live on the company’s website for expat participation.

    Max Media tells us that it is still not too late to get involved in what they call the largest international research study of those living outside their country of origin. But hurry, the study closes on February 1, 2014.

    “The purpose of launching these annual expat surveys is to get detailed insights from those outside their country of origin,” Managing Director Stuart Smith told us recently. “Our initial survey examined where expats live and are moving, why they are expats, when they became expats and their lives now in their new communities. The survey takes about 20 minutes, but we have had respondents take up to 50 minutes to tell us about what they like and dislike about their adopted homes. Apparently, many had strong opinions on that subject.”

    Max Media also wants to know: What motivates expat relocation in different parts of the world? What challenges do expats face? What do expats expect from those that provide them with services? How do expats communicate and what do they respond to?

    Each questionnaire has been designed to not only gauge expat views on popular lifestyle and consumer topics, but also invites expats to share their experiences abroad.

    So far, the study has revealed that 70 percent of expats say they intend to remain living outside their country of origin, suggesting that most expats will remain expats. An additional 22 percent say they are considering moving to another country. And, 72 percent of expats transfer their money via their banks.

    We’ll be interviewing Project Director Emma Wood in February when all the juicy details are revealed. Stay tuned. www.theexpatsurvey.com

  • New Survey Says Most Expats Will Remain Expats

    January 17 - My International Adventure website

    A new survey by London-based Max Media International finds that over 70 percent of expats say they intend to remain living outside their country of origin, suggesting that most expats will remain expats. An additional 22 percent say they are considering moving to another country.

    Based on over 5,000 responses from expats in 110 countries, the “Migration and Lifestyle” study is the first in a series of three surveys that will be conducted annually. “Retail and Finance” and “Travel and Health” studies are live on the company’s website for expat participation.

    We chatted briefly with Max Media’s Managing Director Stuart Smith about the studies.

    “The purpose of launching these annual expat surveys is to get detailed insights from those outside their country of origin,” Smith Said. “Our initial survey examined where expats live and are moving, why they are expats, when they became expats and their lives now in their new communities. The survey takes about 20 minutes, but we had respondents take up to 50 minutes to tell us about what they like and dislike about their adopted homes. Apparently, many had strong opinions on that subject.”

    Although respondents included both corporate movers and self-movers, one of the key findings from the study shows a high level of frustration among women involved in corporate moves, particularly those with children. The stress of corporate relocation can be not only a career-breaker, but a marriage-breaker as well, according to the study. Having a corporate relocation specialist to work with appears not to have helped in many cases. Respondents often accused them of not understanding and meeting their needs.

    South Korea receives top marks as a relocation facilitator and integrator, while China and Japan get a thumbs-down for difficulty in getting a work permit.

    Smith says he will provide us with a complete executive summary of the “Migration and Lifestyle” study when it is completed in the near future. We will bring you all of those insights in a future article.

    Stay tuned.

  • The Expat Survey – Is An Expat’s Grass Greener?

    January 16 - Article featured on AngloInfo website

    iWorld Research has announced a third category in its expat survey, a survey they believe will answer the question, ‘Is the grass greener on the other side?’.

    The ‘other side’ they are referring to is the place thousands of people move to when they take the leap to go overseas – away from their home ‘side’ and onto the ‘greener’ expat one.

    The Expat Survey launched last year with two parts: ‘Migration & Lifestyle’ and ‘Retail & Finance’ – they are now joined by ‘Travel & Health’.

    All three surveys are live and open for expats to contribute to until the closing date of 31 January 2014. Click here to take part.

    On completion of all three surveys expats will be entered into a £1,000 prize draw (or euros or dollars calculated on bank exchange rate as at the closing date of 31st January 2014) or they can opt to donate the prize to charity.

  • Is The Grass Really Greener On The Other Side?

    December 9 - Union Jack newspaper - September issue (page 4) - USA

    Calling all expatriates of any nationality! Have you moved overseas for a better quality of life for your family, to pursue a career opportunity or simply for a change of scenery to the place you always adored? If you have then we really want to hear from you and this is the opportunity to make sure your voice is heard.

    Whatever initiated your move ‘The Expat Survey’ invites you to share your opinions on a variety of different topics. Whilst there are the usual questions requiring you to tick boxes, the research study breaks away from convention and enquires about your experience, whether or not expectations have been fulfilled, what expats miss about home and requests tips and advice for others contemplating a move to a new continent. Your input will make a valuable contribution to understanding how those residing outside their country of origin can be supported, so that organisations and companies that specialise in servicing expatriate communities and individuals can understand their needs better.

    In a world of rapid change and volatile economies, with the diversification and consolidation of businesses resulting in employment instability and mounting stress, many have chosen to move overseas in the belief that the grass is greener on the other side. For some a permanent move, for others temporary; in many cases for a life-style change, for others there has been no choice. Whether it has proven to be the best or worst decision you ever made, your feedback is essential.

    ‘The Expat Survey’ is the largest independent research study ever undertaken on migration and expatriate life. Led by the ex-head of research for BBC World, it does not share any information with third parties and has no links to Governments whatsoever. It is entirely independent and promoted, but not sponsored, by almost 100 publishers and reputable companies servicing expatriates around the world, such as the international accountancy firm Chantrey Vellacott DFK and the specialist expatriate insurance company Clements Worldwide.

    Conducted as an annual rolling programme the study comprises three surveys – ‘Migration & Lifestyle’ start date 15th July, ‘Retail & Finance’ start date 10th September and ‘Travel & Health’ start date 5th November 2013. Whilst the main thrust of each survey lasts 8 weeks, all surveys will remain live until 31st December so that a continual collection of responses takes place.

    As the second survey ‘Retail & Finance’ gets underway at www.theexpatsurvey.com and the third and final part ‘Travel & Health’ is set to launch in November, incredible results are emerging from the first survey ‘Migration & Lifestyle’ providing very detailed insight from those living outside their country of origin in almost 100 countries. The initial part examined from where to where, why and when and now resident in their chosen community what they like or dislike about their adopted home, what media channels they follow and use to stay in touch with friends, family and the outside world; and how easy or hard did they find it to integrate.

    Contending with an unfamiliar country and culture, often a new language and suddenly no friends and family for support, numerous wives have shared their sense of bitter disappointment with their husbands’ employers for failing to appreciate the impact on the family unit; and a sense of being left to tackle the challenging dynamics of establishing a home and integrating alone; whilst the focus of the companies was on getting their spouses settled into their new workplace as quickly as possible. In some cases relocation specialists were involved in catering for the career moves, but stand accused of not truly understanding and meeting their needs.

    ‘For some women, particularly those with children, the sheer stress of the corporate relocation bordered not only on being a career breaker, but almost a marriage breaker as well. These respondents are urging companies to take greater responsibility for getting the experience right not just for their employees, but their families too; and recommend that those contemplating a move use social media to contact other company employees, their spouses and other expats in their chosen destination to get the full lowdown on what their move might really entail’ says Emma Wood, project director for www.theexpatsurvey.com.

    ‘From the outset The Expat Survey team has been committed to not only conducting the most far-reaching global research programme, but to ensuring that each survey in our three-part annual study connects with expats in a meaningful way to understand their true experiences. We really want expats to have their say and need them to share their stories, good or bad, so that the statistical outcomes of each survey can be placed in real context’ she explains.

    Despite the initial upheaval, 71% of respondents intend to remain outside their country of origin; whilst 22% disclosed that they are considering moving on to a new destination and 8% have an active plan-of-action to achieve this imminently. Churches are praised for providing a lot of practical support as well as spiritual; and surprisingly the South Korean Government is highlighted as being a superb relocation facilitator and integrator; whilst Japan and China are sited as places where securing a work permit is painful unless your employer has clout or you have the right connections.

    Several thousand expats of many nationalities have responded so far thanks to the fantastic coverage provided by media owners around the world and the on-going promotional support received from its growing number of reputable collaborative partners. These include the currency exchange giant Oz Forex, Vonage the award winning telecoms provider, Bishop’s Move the international removal company and Britishcornershop.co.uk the popular online retailer offering worldwide home delivery.

  • It Won’t Be the Same without You: Join The Expat Survey 2013

    November 22 - Clearing Customs

    The logo for The Expat Survey 2013 is a hummingbird, “because just like human beings each one has its own migratory flight pattern.”

    If you’re an expatriate, the Expat Survey wants to hear about your migrations, as well as your “remarkable diversity of habitats.”

    The survey is made up of three parts, each rolled out separately, with the final section going live tomorrow (November 20). All portions of the survey will remain available online until December 31.

    The three sections are

    Migration & Lifestyle
    “[H]ave you found it easy to integrate, what do you like or dislike about your adopted home, has life changed considerably and how do you stay in touch with family, friends and the outside world?”
    Retail & Finance
    “Whether you are working or not, what are your important considerations when it comes to personal or household expenditure, banking and investments; and what information resources do you now tend to turn to when making these decisions and future fiscal planning?”
    Travel & Health
    “Has your move to a warmer or colder climate changed your perspective of the world and the places and people you choose to visit; and what modes of transport do you use to get there? Do you enjoy a better diet and benefit from improved health and if you have had cause to call upon your local medical services were they sufficient?”

    Besides having their voices heard, expats who fill out all three portions of the survey will be entered into a drawing for £1,000.

    An independent London organization, i-World Research Limited, is conducting The Expat Survey, and it’s being promoted by 10 “collaborative partners.” One of those partners, Max Media International, calls the survey ”the largest and most extensive independent global research programme ever conducted on those residing outside of their country of origin.”

    November 19 - Round Town News website - Spain

    THE SECOND survey ‘Retail & Finance’ gets underway at www.theexpatsurvey.com and the third and final part, ‘Travel & Health’, is set to launch in November. Incredible results have emerged from the first survey, ‘Migration & Lifestyle’, providing details of expats in almost 100 countries.

    The initial part examined what residents in their chosen community like or dislike about their adopted home; the media channels they follow and use to stay in touch with friends, family and the outside world and how easy or difficult they find it to integrate. In some cases relocation specialists involved in catering for career moves stand accused of not truly understanding and meeting the needs of women facing these difficulties.

    “For some women, particularly those with children, the stress of corporate relocation borders on being a career and marriage breaker,” says Emma Wood, project director for www.theexpatsurvey.com. “Those contemplating a move are advised to use social media to contact other company employees, their spouses and other expats to get the full lowdown on what their move might entail.

    “From the outset The Expat Survey team has committed to conducting a far-reaching global research programme, ensuring each survey in our three-part annual study connects with expats in a meaningful way.”

    Despite the upheaval 71% of respondents intend to remain outside their country of origin; 22% disclosed they are considering moving to a new destination; 8% have a plan-of-action to achieve this imminently. Churches are praised for providing practical and spiritual support.

    Several thousand expats responded, thanks to the coverage provided by media owners around the world and the support received from its reputable collaborative partners such as currency exchange giant Oz Forex; Vonage the award winning telecoms provider; Bishop’s Move the international removal company and Britishcornershop.co.uk the popular online retailer offering worldwide home delivery.

    Is the grass really greener on the other side?

    Enter the world’s largest expat survey for your chance to WIN £1,000 cash

    Calling all expatriates of any nationality! Have you moved overseas for a better quality of life for your family, to pursue a career opportunity or simply for a change of scenery to the place you always adored? If you have then we really want to hear from you and this is the opportunity to make sure your voice is heard.

    Whatever initiated your move ‘The Expat Survey’ invites you to share your opinions on a variety of different topics.

  • Frustrated expat wives blame husbands’ employers

    November 7 - Trade Arabia website - Middle East

    An article on the second part of the Expat Survey 2013 has been published on Trade Arabia, a business news information website.

    “Expat wives shared a sense of bitter disappointment with their husbands’ employers for failing to appreciate the impact of contending with an unfamiliar environment on the family unit, said a survey.

    They expressed a sense of being left to tackle the challenging dynamics of establishing a home and integrating alone, while the companies focused on getting their spouses settled into their new workplace as quickly as possible, the ‘Migration & Lifestyle’ survey conducted at theexpatsurvey.com revealed.

    It provided a very detailed insight from those living outside their country of origin in almost 100 countries.

    The initial part examined from where to where, why and when and now resident in their chosen community, what they like or dislike about their adopted home, what media channels they follow and use to stay in touch with friends, family and the outside world; and how easy or hard did they find it to integrate.

    The survey said that in some cases relocation specialists were involved in catering for the career moves, but stand accused of not truly understanding and meeting their needs.

    ‘For some women, particularly those with children, the sheer stress of the corporate relocation bordered not only on being a career breaker, but almost a marriage breaker as well,” said Emma Wood, project director for the surveyor.

    “These respondents are urging companies to take greater responsibility for getting the experience right not just for their employees, but their families too; and recommend that those contemplating a move use social media to contact other company employees, their spouses and other expats in their chosen destination to get the full lowdown on what their move might really entail,” she said.

    Despite the initial upheaval, 71 per cent of respondents intend to remain outside their country of origin; while 22 per cent disclosed that they are considering moving on to a new destination and 8 per cent have an active plan-of-action to achieve this imminently.

    Respondents praised churches for providing a lot of practical and spiritual support. The South Korean Government was highlighted as being a superb relocation facilitator and integrator; while Japan and China are sited as places where securing a work permit is painful unless your employer has clout or you have the right connections.”

  • Clements Worldwide Backs Massive Global Expat Research Initiative

    October 25 - PR Web website

    Clements Worldwide, leading provider of international insurance solutions for expatriates, proudly plays key role in one of the world’s largest expat research programs. Expressly developed to garner insight about key trends and issues affecting individuals living outside of their country of origin, the Expat Survey program will reach an anticipated audience of more than 10 million expats around the globe.

    The global expat community, estimated at 220 million individuals, regularly faces dynamic and complex challenges. Under the direction of ex-head of research for BBC World and the ex-research director for Saatchi & Saatchi, the Expat Survey delves into the most predominant challenges affecting the lives of expats:

    Migration and Lifestyle
    Retail and Finance
    Travel and Health

    Launched on July 15th, the Expat Survey aims to compile useful, research-based intelligence about the challenges of expatriate life across all nationalities and territories. Those who complete the survey at theexpatsurvey.com will be entered into a prize draw to win £1,000 to keep for themselves or to donate to a UK charity of their choice.

    Dan Tuman, senior vice president of sales at Clements, remarks about the positive impact of the Expat Survey: “Clements is committed to delivering world-class insurance solutions and excellent customer service to our valued clients, located in over 170 countries. With the information garnered from the Expat Survey, we expect to help expats even more during their overseas experience. Clements is proud to be a collaborative partner and offer our support this valuable research initiative.”

  • Global Expat Research Initiative Underway

    October 24 - Expat Briefing website

    A group of businesses is undertaking what they describe as “the largest global research program into those living outside their country of origin,” with a total of three questionnaires on migration and lifestyle, retail and finance, and travel and heath.

    The organizers believe that the project, entitled Expat Survey 2013, will give a clear picture of migratory trends and the reasons for them; provide a more detailed understanding of lifestyle and consumer behavior among expatriate communities, including which media they respond to; and raise awareness of the “expatriate market” and the products, services and media that service it. The project aims to provide intelligence on expatriates in all nationalities and territories, and to reach an audience of more than 10m expats around the world.

    Collaborative partners in the project include the insurer Clements Worldwide, the accountancy firm Chantrey Vellacott DFK, the media agency Max Media, and the removals and storage company Bishop’s Move. The project is under the direction of Keith Donaldson, who is CEO of the Joint Industry Committee for Regional Media Research and a former head of BBC World.

    Expats are invited to participate in the survey via a designated website, and those who take part will be entered into a prize draw worth GBP1,000. The first questionnaire, on migration and lifestyle, became live on July 15. Retail and finance, and travel and health, will be launched on September 10 and November 5 respectively. All surveys will remain open until the end of the year.

    Dan Tuman, senior vice president of sales at Clements, was quoted as saying that “with the information garnered from the Expat Survey, we expect to help expats even more during their overseas experience. Clements is proud to be a collaborative partner and offer our support this valuable research initiative.”

  • Massive new independent expat survey now live online

    October 9 - Expats Blog website

    The world’s largest survey of everything to do with expats and their experiences has finally been launched online, and is aimed at expatriates across the world, whatever their nationality.

    Whether respondents decided to make the biggest move of their lives for reasons of work, for retirement, for quality of life or simply out of a change of scenery, the Expats Survey wants to hear all about it. The topics are wider than in most studies, and the presentation of the questions isn’t just a box-ticking exercise, as respondents are allowed to give their opinions on many questions in their own words.

    Questions asked are about expectations and their fulfillment or otherwise, what expats most miss about their home countries and other unconventional requests. It also requests permission to ask more at a later date on tips and guidance for migrants heading for their new continents.

    Of course, the results of the survey, due out some time in 2014, will be of help to commercial companies serving all aspects of expat living, but the authors are also hoping it can be used to help those living overseas in more mundane matters. As a result, the questions are aimed in a different way than in the annual surveys conducted by international banks.

    The survey, conducted by i–World Research, is the most comprehensive and largest global research study ever undertaken on the growing phenomenon of emigration. It’s being led by the ex-BBC World director and Saatchi & Saatchi’s former research director, has no links to any government organisation anywhere and will not share information with third parties.

    The first section, Migration and Lifestyle, was released 15 July, and will be followed by Retail and Finance on 10 September and Travel and Health on 5 November. All three section will be live until 31 December, giving as many expats as possible a chance to make their views known.

  • Calling all Expats – Have your say in the biggest expat survey ever

    September 27 - The Expat Hub website

    Calling all Expats – Have your say in the biggest expat survey ever

    Do you love being an expat?

    Is the quality of life in your overseas home as good as you expected?

    Has the weather lived up to your expectations?

    Are you disappointed by the employment opportunities?

    A lot of thought and consideration usually lies behind the decision to take the plunge and move overseas, and often the opinions and experiences of other expats can be a big help in the process.

    Existing or former expats are able to provide an invaluable insight into an area and way of life, the type of first-hand knowledge you simply can’t get from research or fleeting visits. Consequently, opinion polls are a very useful tool for both expats and expat service providers.

    According to the Telegraph, Max Media International is promoting the largest expat-focused opinion poll ever attempted.

    It has been estimated that up to 10,000 expats could take part in a mammoth research survey which will be divided into three sections; health and travel, migration and lifestyle, retail and finance.

    Questions will include ‘What do you miss most from home?’ and ‘Did your move meet your expectations?’

    Participating expats are then entered into a prize draw for the chance to win £1,000.

    Max Media International commented: ‘The expat survey is the largest independent research study ever undertaken on migration and expatriate life. […] It is entirely independent and promoted [by nearly] 100 publishers and reputable companies servicing expatriates around the world.’

    The following, more comprehensive, statement was also issued to explain the poll’s aims: ‘The dynamics of migration and the logistics of catering for the needs of expatriates are complex. It is often the case that wannabe expatriates envisage relocation will be easy, and often it isn’t. The survey is not conventional […] but contains questions which ask the expat for their real experiences and tips and advice for others contemplating a move. We also ask which organisations they found most helpful so that those pulling out the stops for expats when they find themselves in a difficult position receive recognition in an information centre we shall be launching next year.’

    If you’d like to air your views and be in with a chance of winning £1000 you have until the end of December to enter!
