Expat Insider 2022 — Coming Full Circle?

Since 2014, we’ve asked expats from around the world to take part in the annual Expat Insider survey. One the largest of its kind, the survey covers virtually every aspect of the expat experience — from finances to finding friends — allowing expats to share their personal experiences and thoughts on life abroad.

In 2022, close to 12,000 respondents shared what it’s like living and working far from home. Together, they represent a total of 177 nationalities and live in 181 countries or territories.

The views gathered in the survey paint a picture of what expat life today is like — and also give insights into expats’ respective countries and cities of residence around the globe.
