Expatriates living in locations across the world are being asked to add their opinions to a study into their way of life and the things they need.
The largest ever opinion poll of expats will also ask for the advice that those who have moved abroad would pass onto their new counterparts.
If it goes to plan, then as many as 10,000 expats could air their views in the survey, which is being marketed by Max Media International.
In order to take part, expats need to complete the questions online here, which have been split into three stages. The first is migration and lifestyle; the second retail and finance; and the third health.
Instead of lots of tick boxes, the survey contains questions that encourage expats to write about real experiences and opinions to get a clearer view of their lifestyles.
They are also asked to name any companies and organisations that were particularly useful as they went about creating their new life abroad.
This information will help to inform a database of firms to be launched next year.
Every person who completes all three of the sections will be automatically entered into a prize draw to win £1,000.
Emma Wood, business development director at Max Media international, said: "The dynamics of migration and the logistics of catering for the needs of expatriates are complex.
"It is often the case that wannabe expatriates envisage relocation will be easy, and often it isn't."
After the information has been collated it will be shared with companies related to expats in order to improve the services they offer their clients.
These will range from schools and house moving companies to expat insurers and funeral companies.
A statement from Max Media International said: "It does not share any information with third parties and has no links to governments whatsoever.
"It is entirely independent and promoted, but not sponsored, by almost 100 publishers and reputable companies servicing expatriates around the world."
Responses to the survey need to be completed by December 31st.
