This article seeks to empirically examine the influence of inadequate selection process, cross cultural training & pre-departure support on the expatriate failure. By using Quota sampling, data was collected from 115 repatriates in major oil and gas industry comprising of Government sector and private sector companies. Binary logistic regression was used for testing the Proposed Theoretical Model. Findings of this study revealed that inadequate selection and cross cultural training were a significant cause for expatriate failure, while inadequate pre departure support was not. This study is highly beneficial for employees, corporate practitioners, academicians and researchers for guidelines and policies implementations of expatriation management practices.
