Considering moving abroad? This one’s for you.
Six in 100 Singaporeans reside abroad. Just last year, a total of 213,400 Singaporeans chose to relocate for either personal or work-related reasons. We all have friends and family who have lived or are currently living overseas, but that comes with its own set of pros and cons.
Living abroad is a great opportunity for growth and independence, but it also brings new challenges – from having to find a new social circle, to missing everyday conveniences like safety and an abundance of cheap and good food, as well as payment options that we take for granted in Singapore (though there is an easier way to pay like a local overseas now).
We partnered with Millennials of Singapore and spoke to some young adults who have recently worked overseas. From the hardest part about moving to the thing they missed most while away, watch the video as they share their experiences with us.
