Working as a virtual assistant can be an attractive career option for those who want to make a living while living abroad as an expat. In fact, it is a great way to earn a living while enjoying the flexibility to live and work from anywhere in the world.

Here are some tips to help you get started as a virtual assistant abroad:

Choose a niche

One of the keys to success as a virtual assistant is to specialize in a specific area. This can include social media management, email marketing, graphic design, or administrative tasks. By choosing a niche, you can position yourself as an expert and charge higher rates for your services.

Build a strong online presence

As a virtual assistant, your online presence is critical to your success. Make sure you have a professional website that showcases your skills and experience. Use social media platforms like LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter to connect with potential clients and build your brand.


Networking is essential for any business, and this is especially true for virtual assistants who are living abroad. Join online communities, attend local events, and connect with other expats to expand your network and find new clients.

Set competitive rates

When starting out, it can be tempting to set your rates low to attract clients. However, it’s important to set competitive rates that reflect your skills and experience. Do your research on what other virtual assistants are charging for similar services, and adjust your rates accordingly.

Be adaptable

As an expat, you may face unique challenges that other virtual assistants do not. For example, you may need to navigate time zone differences or language barriers. It’s important to be adaptable and flexible in order to overcome these challenges and provide excellent service to your clients.

In conclusion, working as a virtual assistant can be a great way to make a living while living abroad as an expat. By choosing a niche, building a strong online presence, networking, setting competitive rates, and being adaptable, you can build a successful virtual assistant business from anywhere in the world.
