What do I need to know before moving to Saipan?

Answer this Question

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

"When considering a move to Saipan it is important to recognize that the island is a U.S. territory, located in the North Pacific Ocean. Its official language is English, however, residents primarily speak Chamorro. The local currency is the US Dollar, and the cost of living is higher than average. Employment can be a challenge, so it is important to research opportunities and have a plan for finding work once you arrive. It is also important to budget for the cost of housing, utilities, education and health care. The weather on Saipan is tropical and humidity levels can be quite high. Travel between the island and mainland US can be costly, and can take several days. Finally, it is important to research any visa and immigration regulations that may apply," explained one expat living in Saipan, United States.
