Meet the team

Our goal is to empower you to take the steps you need to make your dream move abroad, by arming you with the knowledge to make informed decisions.

We know how difficult the process of relocating can be (some of us have done it ourselves!), especially when it comes to wading through all the jargon that’s part and parcel of dealing with an embassy. Our writers work hard to make the processes we deal with on a daily basis clear and easy to understand, so you feel more confident about taking the next step in your journey.

And if you still need help, our expert advisors are only one call away. Whatever your problem, get in touch and our friendly team will guide towards the best solution for your needs.
