Expat Coronavirus Report

IMPORTANT: If you would like to be able to respond to comments and post updates to your report, please login on this page and submit the report.

In this unprecedented time, we are working to provide additional ways for expats to share information and support one another. This Coronavirus report is a new tool that we hope will help expats stay informed. In addition to helping people in your country, your experiences and insight may give expats in other parts of the world an understanding of the issues and situations that they may face in the very near future. Your insight may provide critical guidance.

As a way of helping expats research life abroad, Expat Exchange uses advice shared in our Expat Report Series to create articles that aggregate information about specific topics relevant to international relocation. We never include private information when we do this. Even though we NEVER sell, rent, or share our members private information, please consider carefully what private or personal information you share with others in our Expat Reports. Read more
