Selected Client Review: “I thought Expat Empire did an excellent job of letting us know what and when we need to get certain tasks completed. They had several items on the spreadsheet that we did not originally think of. ” – E.Z, USA to Austria


  • This service does not include any additional bespoke research outside of what’s already included in our comprehensive template. We personalize this service by only including the tasks that are necessary for you based on your citizenship(s), the country you’re moving to, whether you have school-aged children or pets, etc. Please know that not all tasks in the spreadsheet are adjusted with destination-specific information
  • This service is not delivered through a call like some of our other services. Instead, once the deliverable has been completed, we’ll share it with you along with a video explaining how the spreadsheet works via email. You can then email us any remaining questions you have and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can
