From the look-see trip to the first day your family calls your new place home, moving abroad can be an exciting and stressful time. Share your experiences (the good AND bad) with those preparing to follow in your footsteps.

As a way of helping expats research life abroad, Expat Exchange uses advice shared in our Expat Report Series to create articles that aggregate information about specific topics relevant to international relocation. 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
