Talk to us!

Use the form below to tell us where you are and what's going on.  Upload a photo of you enjoying expat life. We'll post both of them below. Looking to meet other expats? Tell us the details and we'll post that as well. Got a favourite pub, bar or restaurant? - you know what to do.

​We feel a little bad lumping Australia with China - so go ahead, send us lots of info and photos about you and what you are doing and we'll split this page up into two new ones with a line that goes straight through Singapore. Ouch.  Here's the story so far:

Snapshots:

  • 1.3 million Brits live in Australia - they represent the largest number in any one country.
  • None of us live in North Korea.  Surprise, surprise.
  • ​3 pensioners are registered as living in Tahiti.  Lucky.
