The 2021 HSBC Expat Explorer Survey

Living and working abroad can offer rewarding experiences. Add your views to our global survey and inspire others like you.

About the survey

In recent years, the HSBC Expat Explorer survey has told us how expats move abroad for a better quality of life, career progression or simply to experience another culture.

More recently, many expats have faced unexpected challenges and have had to adapt to a new way of life, yet their resilience brings renewed confidence and optimism.

With this in mind, I'd like to invite you to add your views to this year's Expat Explorer survey. It only takes 10 minutes to complete and uncovers unique perspectives about what life is like for the expat community.

The survey is open to all those living and working away from home and those who have returned in the last 6 months.

Thank you in advance, your contribution makes all the difference and HSBC looks forward to sharing the results and insights later this year.
