    That is NOT the difference. Immigrants, whether Asian, European, African, or South American, are usually moving permanently, for financial or other reasons, and seeking citizenship. Expats relocate temporarily, but usually don’t want to change their citizenship. They still have homes, bank accounts, and vote in their country of origin; not always, in either case, but in general. My children tell people I’ve been on a staycation for eight years. Color/race has nothing to do with it. I am an American expat. My business partner is a Nigerian expat; both of us maintain legal addresses, etc, and divide our time between our home and adopted countries. Many of the people who work for us are immigrants, but not all; they are seeking citizenship, and most have no ties other than family to their home country, and no intention of returning. Refugees, whom people lump in with immigrants, are people who are fleeing imminent danger of some form and seeking REFUGE someplace safer, with the hope of returning home some day.

    I think the difference is that immigrants plan to stay in the new country permanently and are usually trying to get citizenship there. Expatriates live in a different country temporarily and keep their original citizenship.
