      Expats are wealthy and don't intend to live permanently their new country
      immigrants can be poor or wealthy and intend to stay long term

        There are expats who live in thirdieland for decades, and there are immigrants who pick fruit in firstieland for a few months and then go home. The dichotomy is strictly firstie vs. thirdie.

        I'm a white expat and don't intend on ever returning home. If you call me an immigrant it would kinda seem like you were calling me a Black person.

      Expat is there temporary

      If that's the case, are the Indian/Paki construction workers in Dubai expats? They're working there temporarily just like the European "expats" in the Gulf states.

    It depends on desire to return home, but I'd say...3 years?

    The real answer is that an immigrant stays indefinitely and an expat intends on leaving, having something like temporary work or education in another country.

    expats are self-sufficient and spend foreign money in their host country which boosts the economy for all the natives. This counteracts increasing house prices because so many more jobs are created
    immigrants compete with natives in the labour market and lower wages and also compete for housing. They often send home remittances and don't even spend their money which is absolute poison for the economy

    Both are immigrants, but expats are generally people from wealthy countries going to poorer ones.

    >Where's the line between "expats" and "immigrants"?
    First off, expat is short for expatriate.
    The difference is the topic or subject of the sentence, or perhaps the frame of reference. You expatriate from your home country and immigrate to a foreign country, eventually turning the foreign country into your new home country. Alternatively, expatriate can be used to mean someone living in a foreign country, but the key point here is that the foreign country is still viewed as foreign, not their new home country.

      So if I'm learning Vietnamese and I want Vietnam to be my new home c**t, I'm an immigrant?

        If you're learning Vietnamese and you want Vietnam to be your new home country, then you want to immigrate to Vietnam.
        After you immigrate to Vietnam, then you're an immigrant.
        If you illegally immigrate to Vietnam, then you're an illegal immigrant.

    Expat: person who contributes to the local economy
    Immigrant: "person" who leeches off the hard working native population

    >expats
    leech off their home country
    >immigrants
    leech off their host country

    both are bad
    you should only be allowed to stay in another country for short term student exchange, and not working, marrying, settling down, etc

    every race should live in their native homelands, meaning european descendants in the americas should go back to europe, africans to africa, asians to asia, indians to india, mena to mena, etc.

    expats are wealthy and can move back to their old country, or a third if they want. immigrants are desperate and will do anything to stay in their current country.
