About Expatra

About Us

Expatra started life in 2008 as a simple blog about the sheer joy and adventure of starting a new life in a different country.

Created originally by Andy Williamson, a serial expat who has lived in no less than six different countries, Expatra soon made it apparent that there are many like minded people who didn’t just want to stop at taking the occasional holiday abroad.

More of us want to immerse ourselves in the new country experience and to truly celebrate the different lifestyles and cultures that our world has to offer.

Expatra continues today as a resource for everyone who wants to take full advantage of the opportunities that living in a new country can bring.

If you’re really serious about moving abroad you’ll find in depth country reports, valuable information about visas, housing, work opportunities, and we don’t stop there. We also include complete retirements reports for some of the most popular retirement destinations in the world.

We update the content on Expatra continuously so that you always have the latest data and statistics from which to plan with .

We have grown from being a small one man blogging hobby to helping 10s of thousands of people to plan their new lives abroad. We’ve been featured in some of the world’s largest publications, including the New York Times, The Telegraph and, The Guardian.
