Global Voices is an experienced and professional market research company conducting online questionnaire surveys on behalf of our partners that need in-depth knowledge and insight into international expats.
Our members help to build important knowledge to providers of products and services for international expats. Our goal is to be the best in our field and to ensure we provide the highest quality for both our members and our partners.
We work closely with the Data Protection Agency to ensure your personal data never falls into the wrong hands.

In these cases, the only way to know if you qualify will be to ask you up front in the survey. In cases when your household does not fit the criteria, we will try and notify you quickly and release you from completing any more of that survey.
