Share Your Experience in One of the Biggest Expat Surveys

17 September, 2013 10:36  Erin Erin

Expat Survey logo The Expat Survey Programme is hosting the most extensive independent global research programme ever conducted on expatriates. The survey seeks to gather information on why we move abroad and what we do once we are there. 

This information is useful to the people who have created a life abroad, the companies that maintain expat personnel, and those who wish to sell in the expat market. As we've found from such resources as the Infograph of the Expat Population, there are around 230 million people living abroad and the more we can learn about this population, the better.

Guide for expatriates in Bangkok (Thailand)

15 September, 2013 15:27  EasyExpat EasyExpat

Expat guide: Bangkok, ThailandWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Bangkok, Thailand.

Bangkok is home to some 9.7 million people and has a distinctive Buddhist landscape, with gold-layered spires, elegant pagodas, and enormous Buddha statues. It is the perfect example of an ancient modern day city. The extremities of Bangkok continue making it one of the world's most interesting cities: from its glamorous skyscrapers and abundance of shopping malls, to historic temples and ruins steeped in Buddhist history, from traditional river taxis used by locals, to the powerful BTS, to shacks housing multiple generations of families sat next to luxurious, elegant riverside hotels, Bangkok is without doubt a city that has it all. There is, however, something about this mad chaotic fascinating city that causes people to fall in love with it.  (More)

medical interview pic move to america I thought I would use this article to share my experiences of the final stages of my quest for a Spousal Immigrant Visa of a U.S. Citizen (IR-1).

I know that as I progressed through the paperwork for the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) and NVC (National Visa Center) I wanted to know what to expect from the medical and interview. I searched and searched and found some information, so I thought sharing what happened in my case would help others.

The Cost Associated with More Students Studying Abroad

28 August, 2013 11:48  Erin Erin

The path to becoming an expat can take many different routes. From falling in love and following your partner overseas to moving for adventure to studying abroad - there are many ways to start a new life in a new country. The latter is becoming increasingly popular with the amount of students studying abroad between 1980 and 2010 tripling. HSBC reports that "...more than three million people are studying for an undergraduate or postgraduate degree in a foreign country."

We often hear on expat blogs and in our series of expat interviews how a semester abroad can turn into a year, 10 years, a lifetime abroad. Programes like the European Erasmus program (EuRopean Community Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students) make studying abroad easier than ever with compatible courses, grading system, and scholarships. Along with the benefits of an education, students that study abroad may gain greater independence, understanding of the world, and life experience.
