There are lots of issues that come up when thinking about making a move abroad, some which are obvious and others less so.
It can be very easy to get bogged down in the tiny details, but potential expatriates should try and look at the decision from a distance and think about a variety of potential problems.
With this in mind a new tool has been put together by HSBC that provides a good overview of ideas relating to expat life in the form of an interactive graphic novel.
It looks at which expat destinations are better for various demographics, from those with families to those looking to maximise saving potential.
On top of this it addresses day-to-day issues, such as the cost of childcare or schooling and the benefits of an expat lifestyle.
The tool also highlights customs in foreign countries that can seem strange when people first move there and the culture shock of returning home, which many people do not consider.
It is in no way an in-depth look into expat life, but this is the simple charm offered by the graphic novel as it sets out points for consideration clearly so that further research can be done if necessary.
The tool is a good place to start and can be found here.
