The main reason an expat relocates is opportunity. They follow a job offer, leave home, relocate to a new country and continue to advance a career or invest in a better life.
The formalities involved and hurdles to be crossed differ enormously depending upon nationality. When moving to a country with a foreign language to one’s own, the initial steps are made in the international business language of English.
Approve or not, administrations and local populations across the globe are wise to embrace the fact that demographics make it necessary to accept that the primary second language of the world is also theirs. The challenges facing expats could and should end there but seldom do.
Hence, Amazing Capitals publishes online resources for expats exclusively in English. No more, no less. Other national publishers provide great service to their own nationals.
The knowledge provided for the use of by cities and their registered companies is a holistic take on life in their location as an international resident. The expat ecosystem is created and extended by inclusivity. Alternative professional and respected English language sources such as national news or local blogs are included.

Important events, relevant Things To Do and highly interesting aspects concerning the host nation, society, customs, quirks, its folk and The Location are also included in the content.
Articles function as English introductions to all necessary themes and direct to the source, even if that is only available in the local language.

Perhaps the most important initial question expats ask concerns the feel of their prospective new home. This is well before committing to relocate. However, insights to a location's local environment is absent on most city websites. To fill the void, this key component to attracting international talent is revealed in full on every eGuide. Companies in your city benefit in the quest for staff, the city profits in multiple ways.
Many expat parents wish to educate their children in an environment that enables smooth transitions to a new location. Local language tuition is also a consideration. International schooling is thus a crucial topic of eGuides. The International School of Düsseldorf is a fine example.
