About Expat Focus

About Expat Focus

"...for general information about living abroad, my favourite site is ExpatFocus.com" Robin Pascoe, the Expat Expert

Hey, welcome! If you're reading this page you're probably wondering what Expat Focus is all about and what we're trying to do - well, the answer's simple: We believe that living abroad can be a positive, perhaps even life-changing, experience and we want to help people make the most of their life in another country. How do we do that? Read on!

We believe that there are two types of information which expats find most useful, namely:

1. Impartial information about intended destinations.

About Us
2. Opinions and advice from expats with relevant first hand experience.

We also believe that of equal importance to expats is the ability to make friends and establish some form of support network in their new home country.

As a result, we provide the following:

- Country and city guides written with the expat, not the tourist, in mind.

- Useful articles written for an expat audience covering a wide range of subjects.

- Friendly, lively forums and an email discussion list where members are made welcome and encouraged to become part of our community.

- A monthly email newsletter full of useful information and interesting articles.

- Expat experiences from expatriates all over the world.

- Financial advice provided by a range of expert, independent financial advisers ready to answer visitors' enquiries.

- Interviews with leading authors, expat service providers and relocation professionals.

- An informative and entertaining podcast for visitors to listen to online or download.

- Much more, including property listings for popular expat destinations, expat book reviews, expat blogs, etc.

If you'd like to write about your experiences as an expat or have expert advice which you'd like to share with our visitors we're always interested in receiving articles for publication. Equally, if there's something you'd like to see at the site which isn't already here please let us know.

We hope you'll take the time to register (it's quick and free) and join us in the forums! You'll be made very welcome.

Good luck with your move!
