The Secret to Moving

The secret to moving is to compare your expat salary offer with the cost of living. Take all aspects into account. At the end of the day although it may be an exciting adventure and a great learning opportunity, what you will earn, will determine the school, home, medical facilities and entertainment you will be able to afford. Your emotional stability and happiness in the new location are linked, like it or not, by how much money is sitting in your bank account.
