An “Expatriate” is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country and culture other than that of his/her upbringing or legal residence and working abroad on deputation or secondment. In the Indian context, expatriate means (i) Resident of a foreign country working in India (inbound expatriate) and (ii) Indian resident working abroad (outbound expatriate). The taxation of such persons is known as “Expatriate Taxation”.
