The purpose of this paper was to explore the localization dimensions in the State of Qatar. Using a sample of 204 expatriates, principal-components factor analysis was employed, which uncovered nine main dimensions. These dimensions were then correlated with demographic and organizational variables. The results showed that the dimensions of localization have a significant effect on demographic variables such as age, education level, length of stay in the host country and attitude of expatriate managers. Managerial and theoretical implications arising from the findings were discussed.
