International Thanksgiving Recipes and a Winter Photo Challenge!

First things first: Happy Thanksgiving! We’ve rounded up some recipe suggestions from around the world. Whether you’re looking for turkey, vegetarian options, side dishes, desserts or drinks, we've got you covered.

But it’s not all fun and games when you move abroad. There’s still the bureaucracy and paperwork to deal with. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to embassies and consulates.In fact, we have a few useful guides this week. Whether you’re moving abroad for the first time and want a realistic look at what it might be like; trying to decide which country to set up your new business in; or making the move abroad as a solo woman, we have some advice for you.

We also understand that sometimes, moving abroad can feel overwhelming. That’s why we’re doing some work with Samaritans in the UK: specifically, the Central London branch, as that’s where a lot of expats are based.

We’re holding a drinks evening on the 8th of December to raise money and awareness. Fancy coming along? Email scar@expatfocus.com or check out this page for details.

In this short video, we dive into the significant health care updates and changes happening globally in 2024. From Germany's insurance cost adjustments to Cyprus's renewed COVID-19 precautions, we cover the essential news you need to know.  Germany's Health Insurance Update:  Starting in 2024, residents in Germany will see a slight increase in their health insurance costs, with a 0.1% rise to a maximum of 1.7%. This adjustment aims to expand coverage for medical care not currently included in statutory health insurance, such as select dental treatments, IVF, and early cancer screenings.  COVID-19 Measures Reintroduced in Cyprus:  With over 3000 new COVID-19 cases, Cyprus is stepping up its game by reintroducing health measures. Requirements now include proof of a negative COVID-19 test for entry into various facilities, emphasizing the importance of vaccination, especially for the elderly, to combat the evolving virus strains.  Free Health Trials in Trieste, Italy:  Trieste launches an initiative for free health screenings, including echocardiograms and blood tests, focusing on preventive care against non-communicable diseases. This move underscores the city's commitment to improving public health through early detection and prevention.  Spain's New Health Advice App:  Madrid introduces a groundbreaking app offering reliable health advice to counteract the widespread misinformation online. This app, part of the 'Madrid Te Cuida' initiative, will guide users to accurate information, from diet tips to medical queries, ensuring the advice is vetted by health professionals.  Expat Satisfaction with Healthcare in Mexico:  A study reveals that expat retirees in Mexico are largely content with the healthcare quality and costs, with many citing significant savings compared to the United States without compromising on care quality. This insight sheds light on the growing trend of healthcare tourism and relocation for medical reasons.
