Expat Coronavirus Update

Last spring we ran a Coronavirus Report to gather information from expats about the spread of COVID-19 in their cities and countries, measures that were being taken by governments and public health officials, how expats and locals were feeling and handling lockdown measures and much more. To read those accounts of the pandemic, click here.

Unfortunately, coronavirus is still with us today and we continue to see outbreaks and resurgences in countries and cities throughout the world, many of which were already hard hit in the first wave of COVID-19. We wanted to check in again to get an update on the current situation in your area and how you and others are coping. As some countries are beginning to reopen their borders, your updates will be very helpful for people who have put their international relocations on hold and are hoping to make the move in the coming months.

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 living overseas. 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
