The number of Americans living abroad has steadily grown over the past decade, as more people have become interested in living abroad, exploring another language and culture, or finding an overseas job. According to the Association of Americans Resident Overseas, there are over 8 million non-military Americans living overseas.

Faced with the numerous challenges of adapting to a new way of life in a foreign country, the best tool for expatriates is to be well informed about their host country and to know how to deal with the various aspects of moving abroad. The Living Abroad section is intended to help you find in-depth information about the top 50 countries and regions worldwide chosen by expats, as well as a plethora of resources that will help make your time abroad more successful and enjoyable. We provide country-specific resources and information on a variety of topics that are relevant to expatriates, as well as general resources which provide database information common to all countries. —Living Abroad Contributing Editor Volker Poelzl.
