As a way of helping members research life abroad, Expat Exchange uses advice shared in our reports to create articles that aggregate information about specific topics relevant to living overseas. We never include private information when we do this. Even though we NEVER sell, rent, or share our members private information, please consider carefully what private or personal information you share with others in our Expat Reports. Read more
