Welcome to Expat Insider 2015 - Take Two
We'd like to share with you a detailed picture of life abroad across all continents: why people relocate, what their daily life is like, and how satisfied they are.
Expat Insider is among the biggest surveys worldwide to inquire into the living situation and happiness of expatriates. After the success of the 2014 edition, we have again asked 14,000 respondents from 195 countries and overseas territories a range of questions on life abroad.
