Why did Portuguese expats decide to move abroad? What fields do they work in, and what do they like best about their current job? How do they feel about remote work, and how do they envision their future working life?

InterNations publishes its Future of Working Abroad report, which is based on its Expat Insider 2021 survey. The annual survey is one of the world’s most comprehensive surveys about living and working abroad, with more than 12,000 survey respondents in 2021.


Nearly half of the expats working abroad (47%) relocated primarily for job-related reasons. This report analyzes 18 different nationalities, offering in-depth information on how these expats view their working life abroad and how they picture their future career. Additionally, the respondents share how important the concept of New Work is in the business culture of their host and home countries.
