What do I need to know about living in Saipan?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Saipan, they said:

"Before retiring in Saipan, it is important to familiarize yourself with the cost of living, residency and visa requirements, local laws and regulations, the climate and weather, healthcare options, taxes, and available housing options. It is also important to research the local culture and language. It may also be helpful to connect with the local expat community in Saipan for advice and support," wrote one member in Saipan.

"Bring a job with you if at all possible (online work). Or secure employment before you arrive. Be prepared for heat and humidity, feral dogs and chickens, limited shopping (bring your favorite mascara with you!). Bring a camera, learn to snorkel, keep enough money for plane tickets set aside all the time, in case you need to go elsewhere for medical care or to buy mascara. Be prepared for isolation. We are very far from anywhere else. But it is beautiful, the people are lovely, and it is a worthwhile adventure to live here," remarked one expat who made the move to Saipan.
