According to The Telegraph, some expats living and working abroad in sun drenched countries are lacking in vitamin D despite sunnier climates leading to the body producing more of the vitamin. The vitamin which is received from ultra violet B rays when the body experiences sunlight, is often lacking in people living in Northern Europe countries. Recent research has shown that expats living in warmer and sunny climates are also lacking in the vitamin due to long work hours and little relaxation time meaning they cannot spend a lot of time outdoors.

The news comes as a surprise for Interdean, an international moving company based in Europe. The company has been helping people move overseas since 1959 and offers services such as air freight, shipping, Visa and Immigration, excess baggage and storage solutions. The company has helped hundreds of thousands of expats move abroad in search of sunnier climates and warmer temperatures. A representative explained, "These statistics come as a shock for Interdean as like many others we believe that those who are living overseas are picking up essential and beneficial vitamins from the sun – when in fact they are working long hours and missing the rays during the day. This is somewhat unexpected for those who are categorised as climate migrants."
