10 Different Types of Expatriates

The Expat Insider survey identifies ten different expat types, based on the main motivation for relocating provided by the respondents.

These expat types, from the Foreign Assignee to the Adventurer, are also referred to in some of the articles of this survey report. About 10% of survey respondents gave other reasons for relocating that didn’t fit any of these types (e.g. moving for political reasons or to do missionary work abroad). They are therefore not featured in the statistics for any expat type. The graphics provide a handy overview of the characteristic features of these expat types, such as the predominant gender, their typical countries of residence, their working life or family life abroad.
