The visa process is an expensive one, whichever visa you go for, but for a bit of extra information, here is what I encountered when applying for my spousal visa (prices reflect what was applicable at the time my visa was issued in 2013).

Five Tips For Learning FrenchFive Tips For Learning French

Erin Erin  Date 24 June, 2014 10:19

While these tips pretain to an expat's experience learning French, you can take some of her base tips to learn any language. If you're looking for an exchange partner - post in our expat forums! For language schools, look under "Language Courses" in our expat guides.

Learn French Like most travelers, I love delving into the local culture and opening my eyes to new ideas. In my opinion, you can be completely immersed in a new country, but until you know the local language, you won’t REALLY know the ins and outs of the culture.

Maybe you felt like, “Yeah! I’ve got this! I can ask a few questions; I can express likes and dislikes. No problem!” But when the first local opens their mouth to speak, your eyes widen and before you know it, you realize that the past few year of studying have failed you.

finding rental move to americaLuckily, at the time of my emigration to the U.S. in October 2013, my husband had been flat-sharing with a friend for a while, so we did not have to worry about organising a place to live whilst still apart or going through the visa process. It made my move much easier as I had a place to settle upon my arrival.  (More)

Expat material: map, compas, ...  - © Fotolia.com

People from all walks of life become expats for many different reasons. So maybe you should consider expatriating if you...

1. ...were destined for a different climate: Maybe you’re the one member of your family who doesn’t crisp in the sun, perhaps you’ve always been at home on ski slopes but were born nearer the desert, or, more likely, you’re just tired of the rain. Seeking sunnier, cooler, wetter or more temperate climes is perfectly reasonable and could even bring health benefits.

Expat Driving: Life in the Fast LaneExpat Driving: Life in the Fast Lane

Erin Erin  Date 25 March, 2014 08:11

Expat Driving There’s something few consider before moving to another country: driving or, more specifically, how important one’s mortality is versus one’s desire to (literally) hit the road. I speak from personal experience, having lived in the Greek capital of Athens for 5 years, although my observations could equally apply to many Eastern European countries, South America, Asia and Africa where, for the unsuspecting expat, driving can seem bonkers!
