Expat News

Welcome to Expat Exchange's Global Expat News

We are going to start posting links and excerpts from expat-related news on a regular basis. We'll also add in some international slice-of-life and cultural stories as well. Original news content is likely to follow.

The goal is to keep you informed about news that may affect you as an expat and have some fun while learning about the world. Importantly, information we link to should not be seen as an endorsement of any political party or political position. Any time Expat Exchange takes a political position, it will be explicitly stated and only related directly to expat-related issues (such as FATCA, for example).

Please be patient with us as we ramp up over time!
