Moving to Singapore with your family

Hello everybody,

When settling abroad with your spouse and children, the expatriation process requires an extensive preparation.

What are the considerations to take into account when moving to Singapore with your family? What challenges have you faced? How did your children adapt to their new environment?

What is your recipe for a successful family expatriation in Singapore?

Thank you in advance for sharing your experience,


Leave your kids behind! I did.

Depends on the age of your kids. Generally I find it too hot to enjoy outdoors with the children, except for the pool perhaps, so there are limited things to do with the kids in the longterm. Additionally you need to consider schooling requirements, public school may or may not be the right thing for you and places are definitely not guaranteed for foreigners. Private/Intl. schools are a huge cost factor to be considered.
