Welcome to the first ever article of the Davao 4 Expats website. This article will clarify the term “expat” and how it is used in this website.
The term “expat” is an abbreviated form of the word “expatriate”. As an adjective, Webster’s Dictionary puts it simply as “living in a foreign land.” In other words, an expat is a person who lives in another country that is not his/her country of birth. It follows that Davao expat is a foreigner who lives in Davao for whatever reason whether permanently or temporarily.
Our homepage says about this website as being “developed for foreigners who wanted to live or are currently living in Davao.” We will strive to give you the most important of resources and information that you can use so you can have a well-adjusted life here in Davao or in other parts of the Philippines.
To all the Davao Expats, now and in the future, we wish you the best.
