New Zealand's immigration settings have recently changed - find out how you could be affected under the revisions to the points system.

Saving money is a big concern for many expats, especially those who are moving to expensive business destinations such as Hong Kong. Luckily, we have a guide to help you out.

Of course, some financial considerations can't be shelved - such as tax. Here's a guide to income tax in the UK, which will be particularly helpful to self-employed expats.

One consideration many expats have is moving their money between different countries. In this month's podcast, Carlie talks to Will Hewitson about international currency transfers.

If you're looking to invest your money rather than save it, here's a guide to buying property in Cyprus.

But of course, being an expat isn't all about finances and working. Moving abroad can bring new friendships and exciting experiences. Here are some social clubs in Singapore that you might want to join. Or, if you're thinking about retiring to the Caribbean, why not consider Trinidad & Tobago?

We have some recommended blogs for you to follow if you're moving to Brazil or Argentina.
