Chinese 归海 (guī hǎi)To move overseas after spending some time in China after already spending some time overseas, while originally being from China.

So the person’s life trajectory must be: Born in China -> spend time overseas -> come back to China for a while -> move back overseas The word originates from the term 海归 which means “overseas returnee”, someone born in China who has returned after spending a few years abroad, usually for work or study. If you flip it, it turns into 归海(return abroad), adding another step to the trajectory. Note that 海归 is a noun referring to the group of people, while 归海 is a verb narrating the action of moving.
