An expatriate is an employee who resides temporarily in another country for work. It can be a long-term plan or a short-term assignment. An employee who handles another office setup in a foreign country also comes in the same category. A citizen who has voluntarily given away their home country’s citizenship to become a citizen of another country is also considered an expatriate. Managing an expatriate employee is a crucial task for the success of overseas work assignments and thus it is an extensive and multiple-stage procedure.
