Then, depending on your attitude and situation, it could go anywhere, but in the best cases, there are the lucky expats who find a deeper love and acceptance of their new home.   more ...

  Giving Birth In Australia As An Expat

Articles - Australia

If you have chosen to give birth in a country other than your home country, it is important to consider the prenatal care and delivery options available there.

  5 Great Golf Courses For Expats In Western Australia

Articles - Australia

One of the major considerations for expats when looking for a new country to live in is whether they’ll be able to continue indulging in their hobbies and passions. Golfing expats are particularly concerned with this question, and with good reason – you can take your stamp collection with you, you can buy a new winemaking kit, you can even play basketball in your neighbor’s backyard, but without golf courses, you’re not going to be playing any golf.

  Cost of Living Facts For Expats Moving To Australia

Articles - Australia

Sydney used to be ranked as Australia’s most expensive city for expats. While that may still hold true, the good news is that the 2014 Mercer Cost of Living Survey indicates that it has dropped a whopping seventeen places from number nine to twenty-six. This fall in cost of living has occurred in other Australian cities too. For instance, Melbourne dropped a massive seventeen places to 33, Perth is down nineteen spots, Brisbane and Canberra slipped out of the top fifty and Adelaide was down twenty-five places from its rank of 59 in 2013. The prime reasons for the fall in rankings are the changes taking place in the value of the Australian dollar against the US dollar. This also translates into better job opportunities becoming available in the country, as corporates will find it lucrative to have their offices in any of these cities.   more ...
