Last spring we ran a Coronavirus Report to gather information from expats about the spread of COVID-19. Since outbreaks and resurgences are unfortunately continuing in countries and cities throughout the world, we wanted to check in again to get an update on the current situation in your area and how you and others are coping. The information you submit will help others whose international relocations were put on hold earlier this year get on-the-ground advice about the current situation. Your insight could be instrumental in helping them decide when to move and know what to expect when they arrive. We encourage you to take 15 minutes to submit a coronavirus report.
