The ‘Essential Relocation Information’ Guide
The Career Intelligence ‘Essential Relocation Information’ guide features the top 6 financial centres, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, London, New York, Singapore and Tokyo. The purpose of this guide is to provide readers with an impartial take on each city and give information that about living costs, culture, conditions of employment, factors affecting families and more. As a senior executive expatriate moving abroad, there are many decisions to be made which affect both the business and personal life of the individual and their family. In the past, many of these issues were only discovered when a new position was accepted and the individual (and their family) relocated, but we wanted to provide our readers with an informative guide to aid in the early stages of the decision decision making process.
What Factors Affect An Expat’s Relocation Abroad?
There are many factors that affect the relocation of a senior executive expatriate abroad, such as the increase in the cost of living, expat policies, medical/health care, conditions of employment and even schooling. These factors depend of course on the individual’s situation – whether they’re single, have
a partner or married with young children – so every situation is different. Every country has a different system in place to deal with expatriates relocating in their cities, some more ‘expat friendly’ than others, and some companies have expat and relocation packages available for their senior executives, so it
is important to keep this in mind when deciding upon a new position and location. Whilst EU residents (who have been residents since 30th April 2004) can move to the likes of Frankfurt without the need of a work permit, moving to locations such as Singapore would require an individual to fit into one of their ‘admission schemes’ and an employment visa is usually granted on an initial one year basis.
What Can I Learn From This Guide?
This guide provides key information for expatriates from anywhere in the world moving or looking to move to one of the 6 featured locations.
