The Expat’s Essential Guide to Moving Country
22 Jan 2018

By Marinda Seisenberger

Born in South Africa to an Irish mother and Dutch father, Marinda Seisenberger was brought up in a multicultural environment. In her adult life, she decided to relocate to Germany. Using her own personal experiences, she has put together a traveller’s guide to relocation, which has been designed to help you to cope with one of the biggest decisions of your life.

There are approximately 232 million international migrants in the world today and a total of 4.7 million Britons have created a new life for themselves abroad. Moving abroad, however, is not just a case of learning the local language - you have to learn cross-cultural skills too, such as your new country’s traditions, role models and symbols.

In The Expat’s Essential Guide to Moving Country, Marinda Seisenberger guides you through the moving process - from the physical move, the pre-departure preparations, to whether your qualifications are recognised in your new country and much more.

She helps you through common problems faced by expats, like ‘expat exhaustion’ and provides strategies to help you cope with the transition to your new country. Marinda’s book provides an allencompassing guide to relocating abroad.

Marinda shows you how to cope with basics such as local hospitals, grocery shopping, important local numbers, how to factor in finances like buying local currency, organising paperwork and insurance. The list is endless.

If you have recently moved abroad or plan to move, Marinda’s comprehensive guide could quickly become your new best friend. Her first-hand knowledge of emigrating creates a complete guide to help ease the transition of moving country.

She has dedicated an entire chapter which has been designed to help the children of expats cope with the transition and she shows you how the move can impact on your spouse or partner.

Marinda explains her motivations for writing her book: “My discussions, my interactions, my exchange of experiences, my work, my coaching and training sessions, my lessons learned, my laughter and tears, the stories that I have told and been told and my friendships are what inspired me to write this book.

“International relocation is a serious step. Lack of preparation and little awareness of what to expect can make it daunting and even dangerous. This book looks at the key dos and don’ts of living and working abroad,” she adds.

The Expat’s Essential Guide to Moving Country (£11.99) is published by Panoma Press.
