Expat Explorer 2020

A snapshot in time, during a year of significant change.

Expat Explorer Survey

The 2020 study was conducted between February and March, when COVID-19 was emerging as a global threat but before it had reached its highest peak.

For legacy purposes we are publishing the 2020 study but without the usual level of analysis. This data reflects people’s lives at that time but may not be reflective of their current living situations.
