Enjoy living and working in Manila

Are you an expat living in Manila? You will surely come across many questions, such as ʺWhat documents does the Filipino aliens department require for a work permit?”, ʺI need some counsel on the Philippines' labour law. Can you maybe help me out?ʺ, or ”What can other expats recommend for international hospitals in town?”

Looking for all of the information that is important for living and working in Manila can take you hours. However, by using our Manila expat guide you can greatly simplify your relocation to Manila. Beginning with culture and sights to tips about food & shopping - the guide deals with all the different facets of the expat life in Manila.

We certainly do not limit ourselves to Manila, though. Our guide includes many more expat hotspots, with advice ranging from move to London to moving to New York.
