Definition of an Expat

Wikipedia defines an expat as:

An expatriate (often shortened to expat) is a person residing in a country other than their native country.[1] In common usage, the term often refers to professionals, skilled workers, or artists taking positions outside their home country, either independently or sent abroad by their employers, which can be companies, universities, governments, or non-governmental organisations.[2] However, the term ‘expatriate’ is also used for retirees and others who have chosen to live outside their native country. Historically, it has also referred to exiles.[3]

ExpatZambia Facebook Group Rules


The Expat Zambia Facebook group is intended as a discussion forum to support our website ExpatZambia is a ‘SUPPORT’ group and discussion forum. It is NOT a ‘Buy & Sell’ group.

Our goal is to create a platform for expatriates to support, advice and connect with each other. Unlike other groups, we follow strict rules.

We maintain the group’s balance of 70% expats and 30% Zambian professionals. This delivers a higher quality of discourse. Given the substantial increase in selling activity we have decided it is necessary to moderate the posting of commercial and high value items in order to prevent the group becoming dominated by the buying/selling activity seen in other groups.
Please read the rules below. Failure to adhere to the rules may result in the member being muted or blocked from the group.
