Expat Network Jobs Newsletter

Welcome to the Expat Network Jobs newsletter for June. As well as links to some of the many new job opportunities available at www.expatnetwork.com, we explore some of the many issues affecting your working life as an expat – or would-be expat.

In this edition we are keen to help you make sure you register or re-register with Expat Network so that you can fully enjoy all the many benefits available to you on registering.

This month we consider how hard is a working assignment in Nigeria. By contrast, we also examine the easy, tax-favoured retirement life of Portugal.

We also look at the pros and cons of UK property purchase and how you can insure your home back home.

We would also like to remind you that we are here to help. So if you have any queries about expat jobs or other topics don’t hesitate to drop us an email. We love to hear from you!

Saudi Arabia Collects New Tax On Expats

Living & Working In China

From July, Saudi Arabia is collecting a new tax from expats and their dependants, a move aiming to boost the country’s revenues amid weak oil prices. The new fee will be 100 Saudi riyals (SAR) per dependant per month, around £21 or $27. The amount is expected to increase gradually every year until 2020. By next year, the figure will double to SAR200 and increase to SAR300 in 2019 and SAR400 in 2020.

Ten Best Countries For An Expat Career

Living & Working In China

More than one in three expats mention their job or business as their most important reason for relocating. 15 per cent moved abroad because they found a job on their own, and 13 per cent were sent abroad by their employer. Not all destinations where expats are particularly satisfied with their individual career options are rated just as positively for the state of the local economy.
