Large expat survey launched

Expats from all corners are being invited to take part in a lifestyle survey.

The organisers are hoping it will be the largest opinion poll ever conducted with possibly as many as 10,000 sharing their views and experiences of the expat life.

The results will be shared with commercial operations such as insurance companies and freight to funeral companies.

The online survey will be done in three stages, covering the topics of migration and lifestyle, retail and finance and travel and health. Those who complete all three surveys will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win £1,000.

According to a press release issued by Max Media international, which is promoting the project: “The expat survey is the largest independent research study ever undertaken on migration and expatriate life.”

The release added: “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.”

According to the agency, the survey should serve to be a useful tool for people wishing to relocate abroad.  Participants will be asked about tips and experiences and to name useful sources and organisations which are helpful in the process.
