EXPAT LIVING

Keep your family safe living abroad with a 24/7 global emergency service

Starting a new life in a new country can be daunting. There is so much to think about and organise:  from finding and relocating to new accommodation, to arranging your banking, financial and legal provision, to finding the right schooling for children. Considering the day-to-day safety of yourself and your family once you arrive can understandably be forgotten amongst the never-ending tasks you need to arrange.

But life in a country that is culturally very different to your own, can often bring challenges that make you feel vulnerable and exposed. CloseCircle provides expats and their families with round-the-clock protection and emergency support whatever the time, location or need.

real-LIFE STORIES

Carjacking in South Africa
In March 2018 a customer in South Africa was carjacked - all valuables were stolen, and one person violently assaulted.>Terrified and traumatised, our customer swiped the SOS panic-button and received an immediate call from our 24/7 security operations centre.

It contacted the local police and ambulance who arrived within minutes, and further arranged for a private security team to escort the group for the rest of their journey in the country.

We organised their direct flight back to the UK and the group were safely home, less than 48 hours after the attack, having had to pay nothing extra for their rescue and evacuation.
Cyclone in the South Pacific
February 2016 - Cyclone Winston, tore through the Pacific leaving dozens of people dead and tens of thousands homeless and without water. A European student undertaking fieldwork in Fiji was caught up in the devastation, sustaining several minor injuries and losing most of her possessions.

We immediately answered her emergency call for help, mobilising our global network of local security experts. We sent a male consultant and a female chaperone on a challenging journey over land and by air to reach the remote village where the student had taken shelter. On reaching our client they assessed her medical condition, and then escorted her across the archipelago, and safely onto an international flight home.

At all times we kept her family updated and her welfare our priority. At no extra cost, we kept our customer safe.
Earthquake in Nepal
In 2015 the Nepal earthquake killed more than 9,000 people and injured more than 23,000. We successfully evacuated 27 people back to the US and UK from the disaster zone, including chartering a plane to rescue a lone student at the Mount Everest base camp in Lukla. In the immediate aftermath, we flew in extra protection officers to keep our customers safe from the risk of further earthquakes, after tremors and unrest in the local population.

We kept family members back home informed and reassured at all times.
