With nearly 1.8 billion users, TikTok has established itself as the social network for short videos. Increasingly used as a search engine, especially by generations Z and Alpha, it is useful in many other ways besides entertainment.
Using TikTok as an expat can serve to:
- Seek inspiration when the expat has not yet defined his/her dream country;
- Prepare for the trip by learning about the intricacies of the expatriate country;
- Find information on health insurance for expatriates;
- Find out about good deals on the spot (restaurant, activities);
- Learn about local life;
- Improve your language skills;
- Learn more about the market and the local work rules;
- Ask questions in comments and interact with the community.
There are endless reasons why expatriates or future expatriates spend hours on TikTok. Fortunately, many content creators from all countries offer their advice and daily life to make you want to join them.

For all projects as an expatriate, it is important to have insurance coverage in case of an emergency situation or for daily care.
