What is Flexpat?

Why choose between Work and Travel… when you can have both? Flexpat unites passionate remote working professionals who are determined to explore the world without compromising on their career. Our programs let you experience culturally rich yet absolutely different from one another locations. During each trip, Flexpat takes care of all logistics, provides you with personal and professional development opportunities, and acts like a glue holding our community together.

Who can join Flexpat?

For our community, we look for remote working professionals, who bring something unique to the table in terms of personality, skills, or network. We generally tip the scales in favor of open-minded, spontaneous people who want to have fun and build lasting relations. We welcome you at Flexpat - whether you have a full- or part-time job, whether you’re a freelancer, a (fledgling) entrepreneur, or you’re currently in a transition point in your life!

What's included in the program?

It’s on you to bring good mood and your best jokes. Other than that, we’ve included the best of the best services for Work & Travel enthusiasts:

  • Transportation from city to city, including the pick-ups;
  • Work space with rock-solid Wifi;
  • Accommodation, read: a whole room to yourself!
  • Social events (e.g., welcome drinks, parties, team events, etc.);
  • Professional development events (e.g., workshops, seminars, company visits, etc.);
  • Trip leads who’ll keep you safe and entertained along the way;
  • Trips and excursions in every city;
  • Opportunities for social impact;
  • Special deals.
What's not included in the price of the program?

We want to give you the freedom to build your program to your liking, which is why we haven’t included the following:

  • Food & drinks;
  • Some activities & trips (e.g, hiking, weekend trips to other cities);
  • Paid sports activities (e.g., bootcamps, yoga);
  • Local transportation (e.g., taxi, bus, metro);
  • The flights to the first destination and from the last destination (since we’re all coming from all over the world).
Do I need to have a job to participate in Flexpat?

Yes. We do see Work & Travel as a lifestyle, which is why you are expected to work during the four months of the program. It doesn’t have to be a full-time employment - freelance work, a part-time job, or a personal project would do.

What if I have an office job?

Not a problem at all. Companies like PWC, Dell, Apple, Salesforce, and many more all provide remote working opportunities to their staff. Actually, going remote helps companies to increase the productivity of their employees, their employer brand scores, and decrease their overhead costs. Do you currently have office-bound job which could be done remotely? We can help you discuss it with your management, just let us know!

Does Flexpat partner with employers?

Absolutely. Flexpat has already partners with companies such as MGT, Startup.house, CRI, Mashkor, Hal24K, and Mahlzeit. Feel free to reach out to hello@flexpat.co and discuss the benefits of a partnership.

What are the visa requirements for this program?

Visa requirements are entirely dependent on your country of citizenship. A useful resource for determining your visa requirements is www.visahq.com/citizens. During the program selection process, we will discuss any visa requirement applicable to your specific case.

Does Flexpat arranges and cover the costs of visa(s)?

Our flexpats come from all over the world and have different needs when they arrive (such as a multiple-entry visa, so that they can cross borders during the program). Since the visas are not consistent among all participants, we ask each flexpat to handle their own visa(s).

Do I have to speak English?

While you don’t have to be fluent in English to join us, we do expect you to have basic English conversational skills. That way, you can enjoy and engage with the Flexpat community to the fullest!

Can I bring my significant other?

Those who travel together, stay together… or so we hear. Bring your girlfriends, boyfriends, friends, grandparents, and great grandparents! As long as they also work for the duration of the program, we’d be more than happy to meet them.

How big is the Flexpat trip?

Get ready to have the best time of your life, working and traveling the world with around 20 like-minds. We think this is the perfect group size, as you can explore the cities, have fun and work together, while keeping human connections meaningful.
