About Expatland

We Are Unique

The Expatland Global Network is a united community of professional service providers based around the world as E-Teams whose mission is helping expats on the move. 

E-Teams Network

E-Team members have essential local knowledge and insight allowing them to cut through complexity and drill down to the issues that are relevant to specific locations.

One Point of Contact

An E-Team provides one point of contact in a wide range of international locations for all the services needed by expats moving to a new city.


Meet Our Team

John Marcarian


John founded the Expatland Global Network, leading its growth to more than 30 cities around the world. An expat himself, John left Australia to establish his international tax practice in 2004, and soon realised how difficult it was to find trusted service providers in his new city.

So the idea for Expatland was formed, and John has championed the cause of supporting expats all over the world by creating the E-Team concept which is the foundation of our current network. An expert in all the opportunities and challenges that face expats around the world, John literally wrote the book on the subject – Expatland.
