Title: Expat Life in a Post-Covid-19 World
As someone who has Lived A Global Lifestyle as an Expat, Digital Nomad and World Traveler for over 25 years, I have seen a few Global Crises and lived through the aftermath. Takeaways: Cov-19 is a game changer on so many levels, and is bound to change the way we live as Expats in all aspects of life.
- The old rules of Expat Life will no longer apply.
- Corporations are embracing remote working, but there are positive and negative aspects to this.
- Healthcare/Health insurance will become more important – a non negotiable for sure, and most likely proof will become a requirement (a lot of Expats returned to the US or stayed in foreign countries, away from family due to insurance issues).
- Solid streams of income in your home and host foreign financial country will be a must.
- All countries will face financial challenges, and as a result, there will be changes in the way foreigners are treated – immigration/visa laws will change, maybe a financial component to immigration (minimum savings required, e-visa schemes).
- Expats will need to be more careful in their short and long term planning before moving abroad.
