The Seasoned Expatriate

Before you accept the assignment and are at home ask yourself the following:

1. Why do I want to become an expat, what is making me make this move? Is this due to a career advancement, career move, or to move from a personal situation or country politics. Make sure you are moving for the right reasons.
2. Will this be a good move for me and my family?
3. Will my marriage survive this move?
4. Will the family be happy?
5. Have I discussed all the details with them and what their needs are?
6. Have I included the children in the conversations?
7. Who is this going to benefit?

Once each member of the family is in agreement with the move, then start asking the following questions:

Is the assignment an open one or a specific contract that will last for 2 or 3 years?

This will help answer questions the following questions -

12. Is there a consulate for my country there?
13. How safe is it?
14. How many other expatriates live there and which countries do they come from?
 
Then consider your next plan of action, set dates for each of your objectives.
