    I was thinking that, too...but there's no concise word...emigre refers specifically to people who have emigrated, deportee is something else, immigrant is something different...
    I'm refering to someone who left (possibly under threat) their country of origin and resettled elsewhere, e.g. Milan Kundera.

    OK, voluntary = self-exiled person or person forced into exile. However, there is the term "exiler" according to Webster's.
