Welcome! If you're moving overseas, settling in abroad, an expert on international living, a repatriate, or just considering an expatriate adventure, Expat Exchange can help! Since 1997, we've helped millions of expats worldwide.
Our New Expat Tip Tool helps you offer advice and grab tips from other expatriates about international jobs, moving overseas, retiring overseas and more. Use it to keep track of your expat insights and save tips from others living abroad all in one place!
We encourage everyone to add tips for your country or general expats tips. The 5 expats who submit the most tips during the month of June will receive $75 Amazon.com gift certificates! (Note: in the June contest, tips must be at least 50 words long. Shorter tips will not be counted in the contest. Plus, tips that are promotional in nature are not counted in this top tip competition -- although tips that promote events and professionals who submit helpful advice are WELCOME on Expat Tips!!)
