Expatland is a ‘virtual country’ where the world’s expats live. With a population of 244 million people, and growing fast, it would be the fifth largest country in the world. Inhabited by highly driven, socially aware people that are global in their outlook.
Expats come from a range of backgrounds and include global executives, business people, tech and health professionals, students and educators.
Collectively we call them ‘the 3% changing the world’.
In 2015 Expatland Global Network launched a book to assist expats plan their move away from home.
The book ‘Expatland’ was written as a planning tool and to offer advice with chapters on the key elements such as finance, tax, family services and setting up home in a new country.
However, the book was only the beginning. To really help expats, Expatland has now :-
- Made the Expatland Book specific to the City the expat is moving to,
- Connected expats with trusted expat service providers on the ground in their new city.
This requires a global network of service providers in a range of cities including Sydney, Melbourne, London, Auckland, Singapore and LA.
Expatland provides information and knowledge from skilled service providers in these key cities. The Expatland Team of professionals (or the ‘E-Team’ ) are independent specialists that are passionate about the immigration industry delivering considered advice before and after immigrating.
From the service provider’s point of view, E-Teams are a super-charged network for building leads and networking.
Each city-based E-Team contains just one service provider per specialist channel. That means no competition on any E-Team when it comes to servicing expat clients.
All E-Team members refer clients and customers to their Expatland peers and enjoy the advantages of a worldwide network, intersecting with E-Teams across the globe.
How will the IIA and IIA Members work with Expatland on this great initiative?
In collaboration with the IIA, all IIA members will get the opportunity to join their local E-Team in their specialist business area. Each E-Team contains one expat provider per specialist area meaning there is no competition within the local group.
Expatland’s global network provides a community of E-Teams in popular expat cities, including London, Melbourne, Sydney, LA, Singapore and Auckland, each focused on helping with every aspect of the expat journey. IIA members throughout the world will have plenty of opportunities to see where they would like to participate.
The Expatland Global Network E-Teams are designed to benefit expats and migrants coming to live in the IIA member’s home city by bringing together vetted professionals across a range of sectors including visas, tax, relocation, insurance, real-estate and much more.
IIA members who join an Expatland Global Network E-Team will receive additional marketing through expatland.com, the support of a full social media marketing campaign and participation in our city book program.
