According to British lawmakers in favour of the private members’ bill, long-stay UK expats are now the ‘great disenfranchised’.
Expats from any world country except the UK who’ve settled down elsewhere on the planet bring with them the right to vote in elections and referendums back home, and the majority still have family and friends with whom they stay in touch. Expat Brits, however strong their attachment to the UK may be, are disallowed from making their voices heard after they’ve been away for 15 years. Anger over the...

How do expats deal with feelings of loneliness once they’ve made the move?
Expat life can be difficult to adjust to, especially in countries not known for their friendly welcomes to strangers, with loneliness setting in and spoiling the exciting new experience of living in an unfamiliar country.

When news of the anti-Brexit court case taking place in Amsterdam broke, details were sketchy and may have seemed somewhat confusing.
The profound consequences of a positive judgement following a referral of the case to the European Court of Justice need to be fully understood, according to Jolyon Maugham QC, the British barrister who is funding the legal action. According to Maugham, the legal argument rests on a gap between perception and reality as regards European law as it applies to EU citizenship. Maugham opens his explanation...

Expats on assignments in the UAE are still taking advantage of the shrinking pound by investing in UK property.
New research indicates both foreign nationals and UK expats working in the UAE are snapping up British real estate whilst sterling is at a low point. Outside London, its suburbs and its fashionable outer rim, property prices are falling due to low demand by British residents, leaving bargains to be had in the buy-to-let and second home markets.
During 2017, the majority of buyers concentrated on properties in the...

France may well be crammed with British expats, but their American counterparts are more easily recognisable.
For decades, France has been known as a favourite for Britons looking for a safe, inexpensive retirement haven with a far friendlier climate and easy access to family in the UK. Brits still tend to congregate in communities, just as they did during the days of the British Empire’s hold over what seemed like half the world. However, it may come as a shock to some to find our American ‘cousins’ are equally fond of the...

Expats on assignments with their families are in the perfect position to teach
their young ones the importance of becoming familiar with the need to save and manage money.
Expatriates working in countries where high salaries and affluent lifestyles are the norm should first teach
their children not to take large amounts of ready cash for granted. Early lessons can be based on the link between earning and spending simply by asking your kids to de a simple job before handing out the week’s pocket money. Tasks around the home, such as...

Expatriate pupils at one of Dubai’s international schools are newly enthusiastic about learning Arabic due to the Living Arabic Forum.
Until very recently, expatriate children were far less than enthusiastic about learning Arabic, as they considered the language was far too ‘foreign’ and likely not to be much use to them in their future lives. Nowadays, it’s very different, thanks to the introduction of the Living Arabic Forum’s new, improved teaching methods which encourage a love of the language.
One shining example of...

One major risk which can cause more devastation to expat finances than the average natural disaster is being publicised by one man who’s dedicated to educating expats on the dangers of investing.
Andrew Hallam, a personal finance educator and author, has one mission in life – to warn expats worldwide against being taken in by dodgy IFAs punting fixed-term investment plans. The plans come with heavy commissions for the IFAs, with locked-in penalties as well as poor returns and high charges for the investor, but are sold across the...
